Plantain Pancakes

From Rose de oliveira

•    2 large green plantains (about 2 cups pureed) the greener the better
•    4 eggs
•    2 tsp vanilla
•    3 Tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
•    1/8 tsp salt (a generous pinch)
•    ½ tsp baking soda


1.    Extra coconut oil for frying
2.    Peel plantains (I find it easier to quarter them before I peel them) and place pieces in your blender or food processor.
3.    Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender or food processor and process until it forms a smooth batter (about 1-2 minutes).
4.    Heat 1 Tbsp of coconut oil in a frying pan or on a griddle over medium-high heat.  Pour batter into the frying pan until your pancake is the desired size.
5.    Let cook 4-5 minutes on the first side, until the top looks fairly dry with little bubbles in it (just like regular pancakes!).
6.    Flip!  And cook on the second side for 1½-2minutes.
7.    Repeat with remaining batter, adding a little more coconut oil to your pan as needed.
8.    Recipe may be halfed
