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.

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

  • 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.)
  2. 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.

  3. 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. 
  4. 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)

    • Allisonposted August 23, 2014 at 6:55 am Reply

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

    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.

    • Sommerposted April 3, 2015 at 7:24 am Reply

      Hi Sarah! I’m so glad you liked the pancakes, and glad to make your diet a little more interesting. :)

  60. Meghanposted April 3, 2015 at 3:25 am Reply

    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!

    • Sommerposted April 3, 2015 at 7:18 am Reply

      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.

  61. BB Migsposted April 9, 2015 at 9:51 am Reply

    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.

    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

    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.

  114. Carolynposted March 18, 2018 at 9:26 am Reply

    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.

    • Sommerposted March 26, 2018 at 6:29 pm Reply

      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!

  115. Andreaposted March 26, 2018 at 8:42 pm Reply

    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.
