  • 2 medium bananas ripe
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 scoops about 32 grams protein powder
  • 2 tablespoons 15 grams coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon optional
  • 1-2 tablespoons Ghee or avocado oil, for cooking


  • Mash banana in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk in the eggs, protein powder, coconut flour, baking powder, vanilla extract and cinnamon until no lumps remain. If adding any additions such as chocolate chips, add them in here.
  • Heat ghee or avocado oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, turn down heat to low and pour in batter. Cover and let cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip, and cook for another 3-4 minutes or until golden brown on each side.
  • Serve warm with maple syrup or warmed nut butter.
