In The Kitchen: Paleo Banana Pancakes

Last week, I decided to add a little something to my breakfast and whipped up nom nom paleo’s cinnamon and coconut pancakes. I followed her recipe but added a little sunbutter (so good) and this past weekend, added 1/2 a banana. We had banana pancakes on Saturday and Sunday. They’re that good.

One might think that pancakes without flour would lack flavor and
texture, but these are some of the best pancakes I’ve
ever had. So good that they didn’t need any maple syrup or agave. And unlike ordinary calorie dense pancakes which have zero
nutritional value, these are actually quite healthy. Eggs have protein and
check out the nutritional value of coconut flour. Even if you ate all four (I did this a few mornings last week), that’s just two eggs,
and 30 calories (4 g carbs) from coconut flour. Not that I count
calories or carbs, because I don’t. I eat real, healthy food, and watch
my (natural) sugar intake. But still–these are pretty healthy.

Makes 4 pancakes
2 eggs
3 tbsp coconut milk
1/2 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 tsp (or a pinch) of baking powder
dash of cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 banana
all the ingredients together and add some ghee or coconut oil to a hot
skillet. Pour the batter onto the skillet and wait until bubbles start
to form (a minute or two) and then flip the pancake over.
Sad story. I had just done a shoot for The Everygirl and forgot to charge my battery which died after I took this second photo of the finished plate. I also had a hungry guy waiting for me to finish shooting so we could eat together and had to move quickly. The
photos aren’t as good as I was hoping they’d be, but let’s all focus on the fact that a. I am sharing a recipe and b. these are not instagram photos.
Let me know if you end up making these, and if you have any questions about paleo (or a fantastic official alias for “the boy” because I can’t think of one), please leave a comment!
