Serves: 16
  • 2 green plantains, peeled ands sliced
  • 4 large eggs
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp Breakfast Blend Spice Mix
  1. In a kick-ass 1960’s blender, combine all ingredients. Blend until silky smooth, no lumps!
  2. Heat grill pan or large fry pan over medium heat. Using about ¼ cup batter per pancake, pour batter onto grill. Make sure you leave room to flip, don’t crowd the grill. Flip when you notice the edges beginning to look…cake like.
  3. Top with butter, berries, maple syrup, yogurt, or your other toppings of choice.
Back Country Preparation

This pancake recipe is perfect for car camping, day hiking or even on a canoe trip, anytime weight isn't a very big concern. Mix the batter up ahead of time and freeze in a "Tupperware" type container. By the first or second morning the batter has thawed and is ready to go.

For backcountry thru-hiking and multi day trips, I bring Plantain Flour Pancake mix. It's a pain in the ass because I can only cook one at a time, but worth the effort.
