  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 3 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries, for garnish
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries, for garnish
  • 1/8 tsp confectioners’ sugar, for garnish


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, bananas, almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In a separate large bowl using a hand mixer, whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Gently fold the whipped egg whites into the batter until evenly combined.
  • Lightly coat a griddle with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium-low heat. For each pancake, pour about 1/4-cup batter onto the pan, spreading it out evenly. Cook, turning once, until both sides are lightly golden.
  • With a small star-shaped cookie cutter, cut star shapes out of 1 pancake. Smear peanut butter on pancakes and garnish with blueberries, raspberries, confectioners’ sugar and star-shaped pancake pieces, if desired.
