8 pancakes


  • ¼ cup coconut flour

  • 1 scoop gluten-free protein powder (such as GNC Pro Performance® Isolate)

  • 2 large eggs

  • ½ cup 2% milk, or more to taste

  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes

  • ¼ cup miniature chocolate chips, or more to taste

  • olive oil cooking spray

  • 1 large banana

  • 1 teaspoon honey, or more to taste


  1. Combine coconut flour and protein powder in a bowl. Whisk in eggs. Add milk, 1/4 cup at a time, mixing thoroughly until incorporated; batter should not be too thick or too runny. Sprinkle coconut flakes and chocolate chips into batter; mix well.

  2. Grease a large skillet with olive oil spray and place over medium-high heat.

  3. Cut banana into 24 slices. Place all slices into the skillet and fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip banana slices, add a drop of honey onto each one, and cook until caramelized, about 3 more minutes. Transfer banana slices to a plate.

  4. Using 1/2 of the pancake batter, spoon four equal circles into the skillet. Press 3 banana slices into each circle and 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. Remove to a plate and repeat to make remaining pancakes.
