Banana Running Pancakes

I wanted a whole food, FODMAP free, low sugar, high carb running snack. Something soft and easy to consume quickly. These running pancakes work great for me - maybe you’ll enjoy too! I’d love to hear in the comments below if you make them.


Yields: About 8 medium pancakes

2 greenish bananas (high in resistant starch)

Several grinds of pink himalayan sea salt

1 egg

Several dashes of cinnamon

Coconut oil spray


  1. Add all ingredients to a high powered blender.

  2. Blend!

  3. Heat a large skillet.

  4. Spray the skillet with coconut oil spray.

  5. Add about ¼ cup batter to the skillet for each pancake.

  6. Cook about 1 minute each side. Unless you like them dark like me. Then leave them on for 2-3 mins.

  7. Remove from pan and repeat with remaining batter.

  8. Once all pancakes are cooked give them another extra grind of salt.

    The sodium is important when running since you’re sweating so much of it out, especially if you’re running in the heat.
