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.

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.

Yield: 16 pancakes

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Paleo Pancakes


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


  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.

    I used to make these for my husband when he was on the paleo diet but I usually ue almond flour and crush the bananas. This version looks great as well!

    I made these this morning and they were awesome! My husband and I are doing a 21 day cleanse and these were perfect. I was craving something comforting this morning and they hit the spot!

      Thanks Kelley! So glad you liked them. :)

    These look great! Would you happen to know the nutritional content for one pancake?

    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)


    • 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 were the best paleo pancakes I’ve made! Yum! I like mine a little thick so I just made the silver dollar size. Topped them with a homemade raspberry reduction, my tummies dancing! Yum yum, thank you for this recipe!

    Kristina — August 5, 2014 @ 9:35 pm

    Yummm!!! I’ll have to try these- they’re surprisingly one of the Paleo pancakes recipes I didn’t try before coming up with my own protein based ones:

    Allison — August 23, 2014 @ 7:36 am

    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!

    Hanna — October 20, 2014 @ 7:43 pm

    Could I freeze these and reheat one or two at a time when needed?

    Teresa — November 2, 2014 @ 9:54 am

    These pancakes are so good. Put maple syrup and cinnamon on them. Great recipe!

    Wow! I didn’t realise you had a Paleo pancake recipe!! I’ve had a few disasters trying to make paleo pancakes lately!!! Will have to try these!

    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.
