  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 medjool date
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 tbsp & 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ginger puree
  • Coconut oil (for frying)
  • 1 large pear thinly sliced


  • Blend the banana and date together until the date has fully broken down.
  • Add all the other ingredients (apart from the oil and pear) and blend until fully combined.
  • Cut Christmas shapes from the pear slices using small cookie cutters.
  • Heat a little coconut oil in a non stick frying pan over a high heat. Reduced to a medium heat and add 1tbsp of mixture to the pan. Repeat until pan is full (I managed to fit 5 in at a time on my pan)
  • Place a Christmas shaped pear onto each pancake and cook until ready to be flipped (around 1 min) Cook on the other side until done.
  • Serve.
