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.

      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
