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!

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.

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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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. :)
