Paleo Recipe: Blueberry Plantain Pancakes


This recipe shared by Dr. Danenberg on his blog from June 28, 2017.



  • 2 Green plantains
  • 4 Eggs
  • 4 Teaspoons of vanilla extract (more or less based on taste)
  • 3 Tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 Cup whole organic blueberries
  • Ghee for the saucepan


  1. Peel plantains and cut into small pieces. TIP: It is easier to cut the plantain in half,  then cut in half lengthwise; then separate the peel from the meat of the plantain with your fingers.
  2. Place plantain pieces into food processor or blender. (I use a Vitamix. Other good blenders are Ninja and Magic Bullet, see them here.)
  3. Add eggs, vanilla, coconut oil, baking soda, and sea salt to food processor or blender.
  4. Process until batter is smooth. TIP:  tThe ingredients blend better when blender power is adjusted from low to high several times.
  5. Pour batter into a 4-cup mixing bowl and stir in blueberries.
  6. Add small amount of ghee to frying pan over medium heat.
  7. Spoon blueberry batter into frying pan until pancake is desired size.
  8. Cook like a regular pancake. After about 2 minutes, the top will form little bubbles just like a regular pancake. Flip it, and cook the other side for another minute or so until done.
  9. Repeat until batter runs out. Add additional ghee to the pan as needed.
  10. Eat plain or top with fresh fruit, butter, raw honey, or whatever makes you happy!
