Easy, fluffy paleo pancakes recipe


When my husband and I decided to experiment with eating a paleo diet, I knew immediately that a good pancake recipe would be something I needed to figure out, pronto. Pancakes on Saturday morning are practically a Hanson family tradition, we literally do it almost every weekend. I mean, I try and mix up the kinds of pancakes so no one gets bored, but really we don't deviate that much.

If you combine this need for pancakes with my intense carb cravings the first week of paleo cooking, then this recipe was inevitable. I tried the classic bananas + cinnamon + eggs recipe, and it turned out fairly good, but not really "pancakes" the way my kids wanted them. They're pretty dense! So I made a second attempt, and came up with my own recipe. Today I'm sharing my concoction for insanely good, fluffy paleo pancakes with you all!

Fluffy Paleo Pancakes Recipe

..........................................................................................................................................

Makes: about 8 pancakes

Ingredients

8 eggs
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 Tbsp honey
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp flax seed meal (optional)
coconut oil spray (for greasing the pan

1. In a large mixing bowl, mix your banana, eggs and honey and vanilla until incorporated. Add in your dry ingredients and mix well. Coconut flour will absorb a ton of moisture very quickly, so in order to cook these pancakes and have them 'spread' on the pan, you'll need to work fast!

2. Heat a pan over medium-low heat, and grease with coconut oil spray.

3. Scoop your batter onto your hot pan. You may need to spread it out a bit to make a circle, coconut flour batter tends to not be very liquid! Let your pancakes cook for about five minutes, until fairly solid, then carefully flip them over and let them finish cooking, about another 2-3 minutes.

4. Serve, and cover in pure maple syrup!

These pancakes turned out perfectly! They were fluffy and delicious and amazing! I made enough that we could eat them for breakfast the next couple days as well, and they held together in the refrigerator perfectly. 

Thanks for checking out my recipe! Let me know in the comments if you have your own perfect paleo pancakes recipe, I'd love to hear it!

  2. I have everything I need to make these minus the coconut flour! Do you think almond flour would work?

  8. My children don't like banana, could I use a vanilla non-dairy yogurt to substitute?
