  • 1 very ripe banana, mashed

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed (Optional)

  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract (Optional)

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil


  1. Mix banana and eggs together in a bowl until smooth. Add ground flax seed and vanilla extract; mix batter well.

  2. Heat coconut oil in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Scoop batter, about 1/4 cup per pancake, onto the skillet and cook until the center starts to bubble, about 30 seconds. Flip pancakes and cook until bottoms are lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

Substitute vegetable oil for the coconut oil if desired.
