  • 2 cups sweet cherries pitted
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 cups almond butter
  • 2 cups arrowroot powder
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chunks


  • Pit cherries.
  • Puree cherries and bananas until smooth.
  • Add almond butter and puree until smooth.
  • Add all remaining ingredients except chocolate chips and mix.
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Heat skillet to medium/high, add a little coconut oil if your skillet isn’t nonstick.
  • Ladle in batter and watch for bubbles to come up to the top surface of the pancake.
  • Flip and cook the opposite side 2-3 minutes.
  • Every stovetop and skillet is a little different. The first batch of pancakes in the pan are always the test subjects to see how long it takes before they can be flipped successfully yet still be golden and how long the opposite side needs to cook. I will say these pancakes have a tendency to need to cook a little longer than some pancakes before firming up yet also brown more quickly sue to their high sugar content. Keep an eye on them!
  • In the end, after I made half of the batter into pancakes I pulled out my waffle iron to see how the batter would do this way as well. Success! I actually preferred this variation more as waffles than pancakes.
