Paleo Pancakes...Huge success!!

We have recently been making a conscious effort to eat healthier, with that we have been trying to adapt a Paleo no GMO diet. It's hard, very hard to give up grains, dairy and refined sugar and gluten. That ish is in everything!! While we are not 100% paleo yet, my latest experiment is definitely moving us closer. I came across a recipe on Pinterest for bananegg pancakes. They were good, don't get me wrong simply 2 ingredients.. Bananas and eggs, sort of like a banana frittata. I wanted something a bit more pancake like.. So here is my modification for a super healthy, protein packed, GMO, Gluten free delicious pancake that will have anyone asking for more!!
Use organic ingredients as much as possible this way you can limit your exposure to GMO products!!


2 Ripe Bananas sliced -Organic
5 free range or omega eggs
1/2 tsp pure Vanilla extract
1/2 tbsp melted coconut oil (Nutiva)
1/4 C coconut flour
1/2 tsp ground flax


Whisk together the bananas and eggs, coconut oil and vanilla you will have some lumps of bananas, and that's OK!

Gradually add the coconut flour and flax until combined.

On a preheated greased (coconut oil or coconut butter) skillet over medium heat

Drop and lightly spread 1/4c of the pancake batter. You'll want to make them small so they are easy to flip.

Cook for 3-4 minutes on the one side then gently flip and cook for another 3-4 minutes and Done!

Drizzle some pure maple syrup, agave nectar or honey and garnish with fruit and you have a delicious protein, omega3 packed breakfast!


This recipe will make 7 1/4c pancakes

These were a huge hit in my house my picky toddler happily ate 4 whole pancakes to himself!

  1. This is just wonderful, thank you for sharing. I'd made the two ingredient version a couple of years ago & while edible, was a fine line to not be too eggy. Look forward to making with your additions, though may try without ground flax as don't have yet.
