Paleo Pancakes - Easy 3-Ingredient #Paleo #Pancakes! #Breakfast

Nothing says breakfast like pancakes.

Anyone who is required to eat a grain-free and/or dairy-free diet, can tell you it’s the breakfast item they miss most of all.

We did a whole foods cleanse in January, and it took all my willpower to stay away from some of my favorite breakfast dishes.

We had to come up with something to take the place of my classic pancake recipe. And fast!

How to Make Paleo Pancakes - Easy 3-Ingredient #Paleo #Pancakes! #Breakfast

Along with some of the other #paleo recipes you saw here last month, like White Chicken Chili and Cauliflower Fried Rice, Paleo Pancakes were a staple in our house all month.

Paleo pancakes offer all the comfort of, well… regular pancakes, without any processed ingredients, sweeteners, grains or dairy.

Simple Paleo Pancakes - Easy 3-Ingredient #Paleo #Pancakes! #Breakfast

Using just ripe bananas, eggs, and coconut flour (and a pinch or two of salt) you can whip up tender and fluffy paleo pancakes with a little tropical flair.

Simply give these three wonder ingredients a quick whirrrr in the blender and start frying away.

The bananas add so much sweetness, you don’t even need syrup.

We served paleo pancakes all January with a sprinkle of fresh blueberries on top.

However…

They taste awfully good slathered in warm Raspberry Maple Syrup! (Also Paleo.)

Paleo Pancakes

Yield: 16 pancakes

Prep Time:5 minutes

Cook Time:15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3 large ripe bananas
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • Coconut oil for frying

Directions:

  1. Preheat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. (You could preheat more than one skillet to speed up the cooking process.) Place the bananas, eggs, coconut flour and 2 pinches of salt in the blender. Puree until smooth. The batter should be thick, but pourable. If it seems thin, add 1-2 more tablespoons of coconut flour.
  2. Brush the skillet lightly with coconut oil. Pour in a 3 inch circle of batter. Shake the skillet gently to spread the batter into a 4 inch circle. Cook for 2-4 minutes until the bottom of the pancake is golden-brown and the edges are firm. Flip gently with a flexible spatula, and continue cooking another 2-4 minutes. If the bottoms turn dark, lower the heat a little.

    Are these any healthier than “normal” pancakes for someone who is not gluten free or paleo? (I refer here to simple homemade pancakes with the normal moderate amounts of flour, egg, and sugar, not some bisquick or macdonalds ones)

    Reply

    • Allison — August 23rd, 2014 @ 6:55 am

      Note how there is no white flour, or any sugar at all….so yes, healthier. Much healthier.

    These are by far the best Paleo pancakes I’ve tried! I’ve always liked the banana and egg pancakes, but adding the coconut flour just gives it that fluffiness I’ve been missing….I felt like I was cheating on my diet!

    I made these tonight and they were pretty good for paleo pancakes. Mixing the batter in the blender made it very smooth – I added some cinnamon and a dash of salt for flavor. I made these pancakes very small because they were hard to flip. I would make these again.

    I just made these this morning as I am newly diagnosed celiac.  they turned out so yummy.  I took others advice and made them very small to help with flipping.  Even my 3 yo son likes them and he is used to the yummy Martha stewart pancakes lol. I made a raspberry reduction with frozen raspberries, coconut oil and maple syrup. I am thankful for wonderful bloggers like you that share recipes, it helps with my new life into a celiac diagnosis and paleo living.  I will pass along this recipe. thank you.

    Would I be able to substitute just egg whites for the eggs? Equivalent volume, (I understand it’s a 2 whites/1 whole egg ratio)… I would love to try these, and as a Celiac, I miss the odd pancake breakfast (well…. probably twice a year, but still), but I can’t do egg yolks either. Yes, my diet is very boring :(  I understand they won’t turn out quite the same but would they work at all?   Thanks in advance!

    • Sommer — April 3rd, 2015 @ 7:18 am

      Hi Meghan! Honestly, I’ve never tried them that way. They would certainly lose some of their richness, but may have the same general consistency. I’d love to hear how they turn out if you try it.

    Just finished making these and they were so good. I loved how they weren’t super sweet. The only thing I did differently was add in chocolate chips and topped with almond butter.  Thanks for the quick recipe.
