Paleo Banana Pancakes
These paleo Banana Pancakes have just a handful of healthy ingredients, yet turn out fluffy, tender, and even more delicious than traditional pancakes!
You know that whole banana + eggs = banana pancakes phase from a few months ago? Well these Paleo Banana Pancakes take those pancakes a step further, keeping the same awesome nutritional profile but making them fluffier, tastier, and pancake-ier!
I discovered a whole lot of things while developing recipes for the 21 Day Reset (see tempeh, tempeh, and more tempeh). But among the piles of fermented soy, I also discovered something equally delicious…gluten-free baking.
I don’t usually bake many gluten-free bready things, but as the tulip-man and I went through a trial run of the reset program, cutting all dairy, grains, and sugar, we began to have some serious bread cravings.
And so these banana pancakes were born. Out of necessity for grain-free pancakes that actually taste like, well, pancakes.
Ingredients for Paleo Banana Pancakes
- Bananas: Ripe bananas are a natural sweetener. Use fresh or frozen (just be sure to thaw them first).
- Eggs: Eggs help help bind all the ingredients together while also adding protein.
- Almond butter: Rich and creamy, it makes these paleo pancakes more tender.
- Baking powder: It can be difficult to find truly paleo-friendly baking powder. If you can’t find it, try making your own.
- Almond meal: We’ll sub out the traditional flour for almond flour.
Paleo Banana Pancakes
- 2 large bananas ripe
- 3 large eggs
- 2 Tbsp almond meal 25 g
- 1 Tbsp almond butter 15 g
- 1 tsp baking powder
- Batter: With a fork or electric mixer, combine bananas and eggs to form a smooth paste. Stir in almond meal, almond butter, and baking powder to form a batter.
- Cook: Lightly grease a large skillet and set over medium heat. Pour batter into skillet, using a little less than ¼ cup for each pancake. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until bubbles form on top and bottom is lightly browned (make sure they’re cooked before flipping, as these are more fragile than traditional pancakes – it may help to cover the pan).
- Serve: Serve warm topped with nut butter and berries or bananas..
