Get a taste of our current FP Escapes retreat, courtesy of resident chef Mikaela…

For those of us not free to partake in the glory of this week’s Escape in San Juan del Sur, here’s an opportunity to share in part of the culinary experience. Adhering to our Gather philosophy of seasonal, vegetarian and wholesome fare, these pancakes are a definite must-try!

Protein Banana Pancakes

Makes 30 medium pancakes.


10 bananas (approximately 4 cups)

15 large brown eggs

1 + 1/2 tsp lemon juice

3/4 tsp lemon zest

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 + 1/4 cups fine almond flour

2 + 1/4 tsp baking powder

1 + 1/4 tsp sea salt

1 + 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

Olive oil, butter or coconut oil for frying


Peel and mash the bananas into a very chunky paste with a fork. Mix all the wet ingredients into this banana bowl and mix well. In a separate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients. Pour the wet into the dry little by little mixing in between batches, until all the wet has been poured through the dry and mixed thoroughly.  Use 1/8 cup to scoop batter onto a hot pan to fry through.

Can’t believe I STILL haven’t tried making banana egg pancakes since hearing about them years ago. I should begin with this recipe, looks scrumptious!
