Coconut Plantain Pancakes #Glutenfree

Author Bintu Hardy | Recipes From A Pantry


  • 1 ripe plantain peeled and chopped
  • 4.5 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg


  • Put all the ingredients in a food processor and whiz until all mixed and no plantain lumps remain.
  • Heat some vegetable oil in a frying pan on low heat and add about 2 tbsp of batter per pancake.
  • Cook the pancakes for about 3 mins. Then carefully turn the pancake over and cook for another 2-3 mins or until done. These pancakes will not bubble like traditional pancakes so you have to keep check them to see if they are done before turning them over. Keep them warm whist cooking the rest of the pancakes.
  • Serve the pancakes with some slightly sharp oranges and some blueberries and shredded coconut.
  • Makes 8-9 pancakes.


These pancakes will break if you flip them like traditional pancake batter so do it carefully. These pancakes are sweet from the plantain so don't be tempted to add in any sugar. Fry them first and test them. If you still want sweetness then drizzle on some maple syrup.
