3. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and slowly add in the banana and milk mixture 

4. Whisk well until a smooth batter is formed 

5. Melt a small amount of coconut in a non-stick frying pan and add the pancake batter one spoon at a time - flip the pancakes when bubbles start to from on the surface
