  1. Coat a non-stick skillet with cooking spray and allow pan to warm on the stove, on medium-low heat.

  3. Scoop out 1/3 cup of pancake batter onto skillet. 
  4. Cook pancake until batter is covered with bubbles, about 2 minutes, then flip over pancake and allow to cook until batter is cooked through, about another minute. 
  5. Repeat step 4 until all of the pancakes are cooked.***

Toppings & Mix-Ins:

  • Serve with our coconut whipped cream, drizzled with our chocolate syrup, or maple syrup. 
  • Optionally add in ¼ cup chocolate chips or slices from 2 medium ripe bananas.

Cooking Tips:

*Be sure to use a large ripe banana, about 9”

**You can substitute almond milk with another unsweetened nut milk or even water.

**You can always add in more almond milk if the batter is too thick or omit the almond milk if the batter is too thin.

***Re-spray skillet between pancakes to prevent sticking
