Banana and apple 'pancakes'

These 'pancakes' are a great alternative to traditional pancakes - and are healthy too!


6 small Chicken Eggs
4 large Chicken Eggs
1 Apple
1tbsp Coconut Oil
Honey (optional)


  1. Peel the bananas and mash them using a fork in a mixing bowl
  2. Next core the apple and grate it into your banana mixture
  3. Crack the eggs into the bowl and mix them all together
  4. Heat a frying pan (or two if you want to make them more quickly) and add a small amount of coconut oil into each pan
  5. Use a spoon to drop the mixture into the pan. You should be able to get 3-4 pancakes in each pan. Use the back of the spoon to flatten the pancakes so that they are thin and round
  6. Allow the pancakes to cook for a minute, or until they are golden brown on one side and easy to turn over using a spatula. Turn and allow to cook for another minute until the second side is also golden brown
  7. Once cooked remove from the pan and continue to cook the rest of the mixture in the same way. Once removed from the pan you can stack the pancakes on a plate to keep them warm
  8. Serve with honey (and anything else you fancy!), or just eat them plain if you are sugar free
