“This recipe is an entry into the Dairy Free Style Your Breakfast challenge with Vita Coco and Foodies100. See more great breakfast ideas at

This is a great one I have to say, below is what you will need.


One bottle of Vita Coco Coconut Milk Alternative @VitaCocoUK

one ripe banana

two small eggs or one large

half teaspoon of both baking powder and bicarbonate of soda

little vanilla extract or fresh, pinch of Sugar

Streaky Bacon, Unsmoked better for this

Maple Syrup

Plain Flour

Right now lets get started 🙂

Start by chopping your banana and mashing till smooth, crack the egg in and whisk till light and fluffy, sift your flour in and mix till a stiff batter consistency. Add a little sugar an vanilla to taste.

Next grab your bacon, I think smoked would be too strong as suppose to be a breakfast dish. Lay on a baking sheet and drizzle maple syrup over the top. Then cook to crispy 🙂


I also made a smoothie to go this this whilst the batter is sitting. This was using the Vita Coco Coconut Milk Alternative, spoonful of smooth peanut butter and maple syrup for sweetness then blended till smooth. Great addition to go with this if say so myself.


Once your batter has been sitting for 10 mins it’s time to heat you pan or flat top, I rubbed a little oil in a ring and on the flat top just to stop sticking. Placing the ring then I filled with two spoonful’s of the batter mix, then lifted off and let it spread a little.

Once you see bubbles coming through the mix it’s time to flip till golden on each side and you have stack of delicious banana and coconut pancakes read to go, you can keep warm in a tea towel or in oven, can go in toaster or microwave to warm through also. On a plus side if you make too many these also freeze really well and can be taken and defrosted for a quick and easy dessert.


Now its time to get that crispy bacon out the oven, drain on kitchen towel. Now pile up as many pancakes as you wish and top with the maple glazed bacon, I added more maple syrup on top too 🙂 delicious breakfast or brunch.
