Chocolate Coconut Banana Pancakes – Grain-Free and Nutritious!

Chocolate, Coconut, Banana Pancakes - Grain, Gluten, Dairy and Sugar Free yet still filling and delicious!

Now that I’ve been on the GAPS diet for a few months, I’ve really seen an improvement in energy, concentration, overall outlook on life, eczema, weight loss…and more! In short, it has been the best thing I’ve done for my health in a very long time. It’s based on a book by Dr. Natasha Campbell called Gut and Psychology Syndrome (where to buy) – a phenomenal book, I highly recommend it.

So, finding recipes that are grain and sugar free can be quite challenging, as it’s not a mainstream diet (but really should be!). I’ve finally gotten comfortable cooking this new way to the point where I’m able to create my own recipes. Here’s one I threw together the other day, and they turned out SO delicious and filling!

Coconut products are so healthy, so I jammed packed this recipe with all its goodness, which adds more natural sweetness.

Bananas, coconut and chocolate for breakfast! Shhh….don’t tell your mom! Oh wait, they’re nutritious!

A grain, gluten, sugar and dairy free treat that’s GAPS and Paleo diet friendly! A real treat that’s actually nourishing, nutritious and delicious!
  • 6 free range eggs (I get mine from a local farmer)
  • 2 large ripe bananas, or 3 small ripe bananas (with brown spots), mashed
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour ([url href=”″ target=”_blank” rel=”no follow” title=”coconut flour”]buy here[/url])
  • 1 1/2 cups [url href=”” target=”_blank” title=”coconut milk tutorial”]coconut milk[/url] (might need less, you do want the batter a little runny) (of course, any kind of milk will do, I just can’t tolerate cow’s milk right now)
  • 1 tbsp. raw cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp. raw honey ([url href=”” target=”_blank” rel=”no follow” title=”raw organic honey”]buy here[/url]) or stevia (can also use Grade B maple syrup but it’s not GAPS approved)
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut flakes ([url href=”″ target=”_blank” rel=”no follow” title=”shredded coconut flakes”]buy here[/url])
  • 1/2 tsp. Pink Himalayan salt ([url href=”” target=”_blank” title=”Pink Himalayan salt”]buy here[/url]) celtic sea salt (where to buy)
  • Optional: add vegan chocolate chips ([url href=”” target=”_blank” title=”vegan chocolate chips”]buy here[/url]) or fresh or frozen berries
  • Tablespoon of coconut oil, grass-fed butter, or ghee
  1. Turn on the stove to medium heat and drop a tablespoon of coconut oil or butter in the pan.
  2. Mash the bananas first.
  3. Then, to be honest, I do the rest of it the lazy way – combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk or mix with hand mixer until all the coconut flour chunks are gone.
  4. Otherwise, you could mix the wet ingredients in one bowl, and the dry in another, then combine, but my kids are usually begging for food at this point and I gotta make it happen, baby!
  5. Fry in a cast iron or stainless steel skillet (neither are toxic, unlike teflon pans) that’s already heated to medium heat. They brown very quickly, so the lower the heat the better.
  6. Flip as soon as they are cooked enough to do so, or they will blacken.
