I love this Coconut Banana Pancake recipe. I don’t make pancakes nearly as much as I should, especially on the weekends when I have a little more time on my hands. When I do make them, these are usually at the top of the list. I love the flavor combo of coconut and banana, especially in fluffy pancakes, like these Coconut and Banana Pancakes today. For pancakes, I think the less fussy the better, ya know? Plus I love that everything comes together so nicely simply by whisking together with a fork.
These Coconut Banana Pancakes are just a little twist on the regular old pancakes we love. We used AP flour and coconut flour to make these. These are the kind of special pancakes worth the effort. Make these at home this weekend!

Can you use buttermilk instead of the milk?
Yes, but you should also reduce the baking powder to 1 1/2 teaspoons and add about 1 teaspoon of baking soda as well
Mine turned out too dense and stuck to the well buttered pan, but the flavor was delicious. Would Love to get suggestions on what may have gone wrong.
Hi Anna! A dense pancake usually means it was over-mixed. I like to mix the batter with a fork until it just comes together and the batter is still lumpy. I’m not sure why the pancake would’ve stuck to a well buttered pan, except that you may have tried to flip them too early? Hope this was helpful!
Thank you! I’m going to try again this weekend.
Loved them! Fluffy, light and so tasty- this recipe is a keeper:) Thank you!
These are amazing! I just made them for a Sunday morning breakfast, and they were delicious. The whole family loved them. I added a little more liquid, and they were perfect:)

Yay! So glad you liked them! :)
These look absolutely incredible!
Did you use sweetened or unsweetened coconut?
The best pancakes ever. Never thought to make it this way – with banana. Very interesting and my son was very happy. Thanks
These look amazing! I’ve been on a pancake kick over the past few weekends and so these have to be added to my rotation.
Used to make these for my daughter when she was small. Takes me back.
Where does one find coconut flour? Especially in a small town that’s just been introduced to gluten free a few months ago
If your regular grocery stores don’t carry it, you may be able to find it in a specialty market…online is always a good option too!

These are reminding me that it has been far too long since pancakes and I last met.. But these pancakes. . . What can I say, the banana, coconut & maple syrup are all flavors that I absolutely adore. I think it is high time that I fired up that skillet.
