Coconut Pancakes

Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. These Coconut Pancakes are also the perfect post-exercise snack with natural carbohydrates from the banana and rice malt syrup. This combination of fructose and glucose is essential for the acceleration of muscle glycogen re-synthesis. Remember, your post-exercise meal is just as important as the training session it follows.

Ingredients (Serves 1)


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 splash coconut milk, or your favourite nut milk
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon raw cacao
  • 1 teaspoon psyllium husks
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil


  • ½ banana, mashed
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter, or your favourite nut butter
  • 1 tablespoon rice malt syrup
  • Cinnamon, to taste


  1. Whisk eggs and milk together well.
  2. Add coconut flour, cacao and psyllium and whisk until smooth. Your mixture should be thick, but pourable.
  3. Split mixture into two and lightly fry each pancake individually in coconut oil, flipping half way.
  4. Serve pancakes topped with mashed banana, peanut/nut butter, rice malt syrup and a decent sprinkle of cinnamon. Enjoy.
