I love pancakes just as much as the next girl. But, sometimes you just want a stack of pancakes that won’t make you crash afterwards, you know? Low and behold, I put together this paleo pancake creation!

These banana egg pancakes are made with those two ingredients, along with almond meal, almond butter, and baking powder. Together, those five simple ingredients create fluffy pancakes that are absolutely decadent, indulgent, and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. 

Whether you’re a long time paleo eater or you’ve never had a paleo meal in your life, you’re sure to enjoy these delicious, fluffy paleo banana pancakes. And, don’t worry. If you favor peanut or hazelnut butter to almond butter, you can use those instead!

Ingredients used to make paleo banana pancakes

Paleo baking has never been easier. In addition to bananas (an obvious component of this recipe), you’ll only need four other ingredients! 

  • Bananas: Bananas are the star of this pancake recipe! We’ll be using 2 large, ripe bananas. By using this ingredient, we don’t need to add extra sugar.
  • Eggs: Eggs help help bind all the ingredients together while also adding protein.
  • Almond Meal: Almond meal will be used in place of all-purpose flour. It’s a paleo-friendly swap that you can find in any grocery store! Almond meal and almond flour are both made by grinding almonds, though almond meal is made from almonds with the skin.
  • Almond Butter: To add extra flavor and texture to this recipe, I use almond butter! This ingredient also adds a bit of rich, creamy flavor. 
  • Baking Powder: Baking powder is the final ingredient needed to make paleo pancakes. If you can’t seem to find a paleo-approved version, you can make your own.

How to make banana egg pancakes

Paleo pancakes are just as easy to make as any other pancake recipe! Since they only require five ingredients, they may even be easier. In total, this recipe should only take 15 minutes!

  1. Mix the batter: To start, combine bananas and eggs to form a smooth paste. You can use a fork or an electric mixer. Next, stir in the almond meal, almond butter, and baking powder to form a batter.
  2. Cook the pancakes: Lightly grease a large skillet and set over medium heat. Then, pour the batter into the 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 the top and the 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.
  3. Serve and enjoy: Finally, serve these pancakes warm and topped with nut butter and berries or bananas.

    This recipe includes eggs but is tagged as Vegan?

    1. Sarah says:

      Oh shoot, brain fart! Thanks for pointing that out! Definitely not vegan!

  2. Zia says:

    I tried this recipe with chia eggs… complete fail. But with a little bit of coconut flour, magic, and amateur baking skills they turned out semi-edible! (kind of) Do not recommend using chia eggs.

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Zia, thanks for the tip! The eggs are pretty important here to glue everything together. Sorry the chia didn’t turn out as well for you!

  3. Jessica says:

    I didn’t have almond butter so I used coconut oil and just tiny bit Less water and they came out great. Also I’m lazy and just lay parchment paper on a baking sheet and bake my pancakes and it even worked for these.4 stars
