Coconut Flour Pancakes for 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!

The Benefits of Paleo Pancakes

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.

Banana Egg Coconut Flour Pancakes

Using only 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 our coconut flour pancakes all January with a sprinkle of fresh blueberries on top.


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


Paleo Pancake Mix Ingredients

Super simple recipe with just a few ingredients to make it!

  • Large Ripe Bananas – This brings in the sweetness and adds to the texture of the pancake
  • Large Eggs – This helps to “puff’ up the pancake as well as combine all the ingredients together 
  • Coconut Flour – This will help to thicken up your pancakes without breaking your paleo diet!
  • Coconut Oil – used in the skillet to help cook up your pancakes.

Coconut Flour Pancake Recipe

  1. Prepare and preheat your skillet over medium heat. 
  2. Put all the ingredients besides the oil, in a blender, and puree until smooth. The batter should be thicker and then if your mix is then, add in a little more coconut flour. 
  3. In an oiled skillet, cook your pancakes into a 3in circle, and shake it until it becomes a little thinner. 
  4. Once the bottom is golden, flip and cook for a few more minutes and repeat until they are all done. 
  5. Enjoy them warm!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do paleo banana pancakes (leftovers) last in the fridge?

They can stay in the fridge for 3 to 4 days if they are stored correctly in an airtight container. 

Why are my paleo pancakes not thick like normal pancakes?

These pancakes will be naturally more thin than a normal pancake, but adding in extra coconut flour will help to thicken it up a little more. 

Can I make Paleo Pancake Mix ahead of time?

It’s best to mix the pancake batter right before cooking the paleo banana pancakes. However, since the Paleo Pancake Mix is so quick to make in the blender, you don’t save a lot of time making it ahead.

Paleo Pancakes (Coconut Flour Pancakes)

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Sweet soft Paleo Pancakes, made with only 3 healthy ingredients! A cozy breakfast for those on a grain-free and/or dairy-free diet.
Servings: 16 pancakes



  • 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.
  • 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.

  4. Hello

    Is it 53 calories for 1 of 2 pancakes? Looking forward to trying this

  5. I love this!! It is so easy to make and taste so good!

  6. Hi — I’m wondering how you calculated that there are only 6 carbs and 2 g of sugar in two pancakes? One ripe banana has 27 carbs and 14 g of sugar and there are three in this recipe. There are 21 carbs in 1/3 cup of coconut flour and about 3 carbs in the six eggs. The nutrition values appear to be way off. Those figures are vital for those of us who are watching our carb and sugar intake due to being pre-diabetic. I came up with 6.7 carbs per pancake (just a quick calculation). I’m sure they taste lovely but I cannot risk making them since they are way too high in carbs and sugars for me.

  7. I love the simple ingredients in these. They taste good!

  8. Perfect! Ive tried other egg and banana pancakes and they were okay. These were good! I bet this can be done with any flour not just coconut flour. 

  9. No matter what I do, the batter is still always runny and my pancakes turn out very flat. They’re still tasty, just not comparable to normal pancakes. Any ideas?

  15. Great breakfast option! Usually, I skip breakfast but this recipe changed my mind!

  16. These are delicious!

  17. My kids loved it! Such a great breakfast idea!

  18. Yes!! Love the simple ingredients of these pancakes!!

  19. So yummy! And a lot healthier than our usual pancakes!

  20. These pancakes are fabulous. They are so sweet and no artificial sweeteners needed.

  21. These are excellent. My sister is eating Paleo and loves them. I love them because my husband and I are diabetic and these are very low in carbs. They have a nice banana-bread flavor and are so easy to make and keep quite well. I am going to add some cinnamon and nutmeg to them to see how enhancing that flavor impacts it. I might also add some finely chopped walnuts for the same reason.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  24. Made these several times and it is a great basic recipe. However, the number of pancakes if is supposed to make has to be wrong unless they are really small. There is no way I have ever gotten any where close to 16.

  25. I just made these for my 3 kids and they gobbled them up! I added chocolate chips and made the pancakes about 2 inches in diameter. They were a bit difficult to flip and turned brown quickly, but they still tasted great. We did use a little maple syrup but didn’t use nearly as much as we have with regular pancake mix. I loved that this is a high-nutrient, kid-friendly breakfast. Do you have any suggestions for subbing the coconut flour with a different (nut-free) flour? My daughter could taste the coconut so I’d like to try a different flour next time.

    • Hi Carolyn,

      We have made them with almond flour, but the conversion is not 1:1. You might need as much as 1 – 1 1/4 cups almond flour, because coconut flour is very absorbent. They are also a little granular in texture made with almond flour, but they taste great!

  26. The best pancakes I’ve had in a long time. The consistency was so close the real deal, and I made them with a not too ripe banana so not too sweet. Enjoyed with your raspberry maple.

  27. Do you have the nutritionally info for these? I’m trying to eat lower carb 😀

    • Hi Lindsay,

      Yes, I just added it in! We had nutritional facts calculated for all our recipes, but it’s taking some time to add the information to our older posts. :)

  51.  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.

  52. Hi I just made these and they were lovely, I didn’t cook them in a pan, instead I poured the batter into muffin trays (I’m hopeless when flipping pancakes!) and now I have left overs to freeze or for snacks later! I also added a few cacao nibs then served them with plain yogurt and a few fresh blueberries Thanks

  77. 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.

  78. 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!

    • 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.

  79. 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.
