Treat yourself to a leisurely and delicious brunch this weekend with these raw vegan banana pancakes. Serve them up with young coconut cream and a fresh fruit salad full of all of your favorite seasonal fruits. You deserve it.


  • 1 large banana
  • 1/4 cup raw buckwheat flour (you can also make this yourself by grinding up dehydrated buckwheat groats or just buy it)
  • 2 tbsp flax meal (ground flax seeds)
  • 2 tbsp Lakanto maple syrup (use code SAHARA for 20% off)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup almond or coconut milk
Green Coconut Cream
  • ½ cup meat of a young fresh coconut (can use frozen and thawed)
  • ¼ cup Lakanto maple syrup (use code SAHARA for 20% off)
  • 2 tbsp spinach
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1 cup water
Fruit Salad (Use your choice of fruit!
  • 1 persimmon
  • 4 blackberries
  • 1/3 banana
  • 1 kiwi
  • 3 raspberries
  • 3 walnuts
  • Several mint leaves


  1. Blend ingredients together in a blender.
  2. Line dehydrator with parchment paper. Add spoonfuls on the paper. You should get about 4-5 pancakes.
  3. Raw version: Dehydrate for about 2.5 hours on 115 OR if you don’t have a dehydrator. Not raw version: Heat coconut oil on stove and place pancake. Cook for several minutes and flip.
  4. Make your coconut cream by blending all coconut cream ingredients.
  5. Prepare your plate by cutting up fruit to decorate. Use a round cookie cutter to get a really clean round shape which makes for great presentation.
  6. Now that all of your components are ready, begin decorating! When it comes to plating, I begin just playing around with shapes and seeing where it takes me. This sort of just transformed into a flower, though I had no intention of making it a flower before. Mix and match shapes and colors and see what comes up for you!
  7. To get the pancake cups, cut a slit halfway through your banana pancakes and fold into a round cup. Add several spoons of coconut cream onto the plate and place banana pancakes on top so they hold shape. Enjoy your delicious self-lovin, raw-vegan, sugar-free pancakes!


Note for raw version: Be sure not to overdehydrate your pancakes. If they start looking hard and cracker-y, they’ve been cooked for too long.
