Lemons 'n Lyme

When life gives you lemons, use them to beat Lyme

Banana, Coconut, Flax Single-Serving Pancake


First of all, you should all follow me on instagram: viciousfitness. You’ll get sneak peaks at recipes I’ll be posting plus a small sliver of my life outside the kitchen.

Anywho, onto the recipe. If you haven’t figured it out already, I like making single serving things, especially pancakes. I cook for one- myself- so I don’t want to make a huge batch of pancakes. I don’t have the time to cook all of them nor do I need that many. It’s easier this way. 




1/2 banana

1 egg

1 tbs. coconut flour

1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tbs. ground flax meal

1/8 tsp. baking powder

pinch salt

2-3 tbs. blueberries (optional)

Coconut oil

Mash the banana with a fork then mix the egg in. Add the rest of your ingredients EXCEPT coconut oil and mix well. Fold in blueberries at the end if using (feel free to use other fruit or chocolate chips, etc). Heat up a skillet over medium to medium high heat. Pour batter into pan- I usually make 3 small pancakes I can stack, you could make 2 or 1 large one. Cook about 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown.

Stack your pancakes and spread coconut oil on top of each one (trust me this adds a lot of flavor and is delicious!). I always add sunflower seed butter on top, too. Eat ’em up!




Author: Lemons 'n Lyme

So, my name is Victoria. I was recently diagnosed with chronic/long-term Lyme Disease. It has been one of the biggest reliefs of my life. I finally have an answer for all the pain I've been in for years. I'm 20. I love to bake and cook. I created this blog to 1) chronicle my recovery 2) share my recipes. My recipes are geared to those with Lyme in terms of nutrition and anti-inflammatory, etc. My research has shown that eating a paleo/gluten-free/low-carb diet is best for those with Lyme, and although I try to stick with this I fail horribly at times. Follow along and feel free to contact me! :)

  2. Hi Victoria,

    Great recipe! I’ve made two batches now and for as much cooking as I’ve done in the past, it’s the first recipe to call for coconut flour. It gives the pancakes the perfect paleo texture. Looking forward to trying more of your recipes!
