Mango Coconut Pancakes

A successful tropical experiment!

I was feeling tropical today because it’s a hot summer day, and I’ve made and seen many recipes using bananas to make pancakes, so I thought - why not mango? So, as any chemistry major would do, I did an experiment!

It turned out SO good!!! The only ingredients are mango, banana, eggs, some coconut, and a dash of cinnamon! If you want the pancakes to be larger or have a smoother batter, you could add some flour - I would suggest trying coconut flour to add more coconut flavor. That would be the mango pancake experiment 2.0!

Here’s my recipe:

Makes about 6 small pancakes


½ mashed ripe banana


2 eggs

1-2 tbsp chopped pineapple (optional)

Dash of cinnamon

3-4 tbsp coconut flakes


  1. Blend the banana with 1/2 of the mango, 2 eggs, a dash of cinnamon, the pineapple, and a few spoonfuls of coconut flakes.

  2. Take the remaining half of the mango and cut a few slices for toppings, and then finely chop the rest. You should have about 2-4 tbsp finely chopped mango.

  3. Heat your skillet with some coconut oil on the stove.

  4. Mix the finely chopped mango into the batter. Add 1-2 tbsp of batter to the skillet and cook, flipping to cook each side.

  5. Add toppings and enjoy! I topped them with homemade yogurt, coconut flakes, macadamia nuts, and slices of mango, kiwi, pineapple, and banana.
