Raw Food Recipe: Banana Pecan Pancakes

by Susan on May 10, 2010

When I was a little girl, every Sunday after church my family would go to breakfast at our local pancake restaurant. I still have those Sunday morning pancake cravings but no desire to eat traditional pancakes. For mother’s day, I decided to make create a raw food recipe for my favorite pancakes, banana pecan! They are amazingly filling, and will satisfy the desire for a special Sunday morning breakfast.

Banana Pecan Pancakes

  • 1 1/2 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/2 cup flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup dried, unsweetened coconut*
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup raw agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut butter
  • 1 cup sliced bananas
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans

Mix all ingredients together. You might want to get in there with your hands. Shape into pancake sized patties. Place on dehydrator shelf with screen. Dehydrate at 140 for 30 minutes, then 116 for another 30 minutes. These should still be moist.

I have an additional question about Agave sweeteners. I did research and everything I see indicates that Agave is as bad if not worse than fructose corn syrup? Therefore, since I consume no sugar products or anything similar, this one is reason for concern with me. Since, Agave is described and explained as such, if is a reason to take note. I would like to have your research input on this matter. Thank you, Crystal

Hi, Crystal, Personally I use maple syrup for the most part. I am not sure I am convinced that Agave is worse that HFCS, but there are things that have come out since I wrote this recipe (over 6 years ago) that are not so favorable towards agave. That is why we offer a substitution. Cheers!
