Blueberry + Banana Pancakes

What’s good about them:

These pancakes make a great breakfast after a hard exercise session. Your body needs protein for repair and quality carbs to replenish glycogen and electrolytes, so you need to choose foods rich in potassium that will help regulate fluid balance in the body and lower blood pressure.  Potassium is also necessary for nerve and muscle contraction. Studies show the blueberries contain antioxidants called polyphenols as well as  vitamin C which can also play a roll in the recovery process and heal oxidative stress after a workout. These pancakes hit the mark in every way.  A great source of protein, potassium, antioxidants and carbs to help your body refuel. Serve with thick natural low fat yoghurt, extra fruit and a little honey.

  4. I love that they are sugar and grain free.. :)

    Teresa, what do you think of coconut palm sugar?

  5. Katie says:

    Yum. These look delicious.

  6. Charlotte says:

    Hi Teresa – can I use LSA mix instead of Almond and Linseed portions?

  7. Glenn says:

    Do you make the almond meal or buy it? If making it do you use whole almonds or flaked?
    Thanks, these recipes are awesome.

    • I normally buy a bulk 10KG lot of almond meal for my baking. however you can just buy a few 100 G from the supermarket or make your own using whole or flaked almonds – both work …but meal must be fine and delicate. :)

      • Glenn says:

        Thanks. I have been looking at recipes for making almond milk. I recently bought a vitamix and am getting my head around it. If I make the almond milk and strain it is the stuff that is left behind considered the almond meal?

  8. Clare says:

    Hi Teresa, I’m loving receiving your recipes weekly, thankyou for inspiring us to make healthy recipes,they are awesome. So wonderful that there is a healthy chef in Australia! May I ask it you get your almond meal online? Also, is the vitamix similar to the thermo-mix in its capabilities?

    • Clare says:

      I actually made these the other day and they tasted fantastic. My daughter loved them too, and said they taste kind of like friands! And she is hard to please when it comes to gluten free recipes! Thanks Theresa

    Thanks

  19. Sue says:

    Divine and so satisfying. I used pears instead of all banana once, as that is what I had available. Worked very well. This recipe has become a Sunday morning standard at our house. Thanks so much for sharing your love of feeding people – rather than just eating Teresa.

  20. Kate Larsen says:

    Beautiful! These turned out great, the best thing is that I don’t feel all heavy and giulty for having pancakes. I don’t need to pig out either because they are nice and filling.
    Love them!

  21. Jessica says:

    Just made these for breakfast, they were yummy. I halved the recipie, used ground hazelnut as I didn’t have almonds, and used chia seeds in place of lindseed. I only had frozen mixed berries and used 2 raspberries for each pancake, the sweetness was amazing, will use more berries next time. Thanks for a great recipie Theresa, will be cooking another one of your recipies today, just not sure which one, they all look so amazing :)

  22. Kathy says:

    I made your delicious blueberry banana pancakes this morning ;-) I ground my own almonds so they weren’t quite as fine as they should of been but the extra bit of crunch was terrific!!! AMAZING!! Thank you for your website, recipes and all the healthy information you share!
    Much appreciated,
    Blessings,

  23. Gen says:

    So delicious! I just made these for lunch today and used additional almond meal in place of the ground linseed. I served with maple syrup and natural yoghurt. They were amazing!

  24. Chloe says:

    We love your recipes, your apple crumble is one of our favs! We have an egg allergy, can you suggest a substitute? Looking forward to trying these pancakes :)

  25. jo cook says:

    i want to try these, so i do weight training what do you suggest for b4 training if the pancakes are after and would they be in lieu of my protein shake or as well

  26. Tanya says:

    It’s pancake day today, so I thought it would be the perfect day to try this recipe. It’s DELICIOUS!! I love that the banana and blueberries add some guilt-free sweetness. I’ve been a fan of yours (all the way from the UK!) since discovering this website and I’m excited to try more of your recipes!
