Easy Banana Chia Blueberry Pancakes

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This is a fast delicious high protein breakfast packed with antioxidants. It's very adaptable and can be made paleo friendly by omitting the flour. I hope you like it as much as I do! I top mine with organic butter and organic maple syrup or raw organic honey."

  1. Blend chia seeds in a blender until powdery, 3 to 5 seconds. Add banana, eggs, flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and sea salt; blend, occasionally scraping sides down, until batter is smooth.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat; add coconut oil. Pour 1/2 of the batter into the hot oil and sprinkle 1/2 of the blueberries onto the batter. Cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter and blueberries, using more coconut oil if needed.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • This is very adaptable, you can add whatever your tastes are, for example: chocolate chips, coconut, walnuts, etc.
  • Substitute almond extract for the vanilla extract, if desired.

Moist, yummy pancakes! I substituted the wheat flour with Domata gluten-free flour and it tasted great, with just a hint of sweetness.
