Paleo Banana Pancakes

Paleo Pancakes

If you have been reading for a while then you will know that pancakes are one of my very favourite foods so I have really missed them since becoming Paleo.  I've been trying a few different Paleo pancake recipes but I haven't really found one that I was happy with until my sister suggested trying a banana pancake recipe.  I'm so glad I did,  it worked a treat! We aren't exactly sure where the original recipe came from, but if any of you know we'd love to give credit.

The original recipe was simply eggs and bananas but I added a little coconut flour simply because I like the texture it gives.  For delicious pancakes that are gluten free and Paleo-friendly, I used:

2 large large bananas mashed
3 eggs
1 tablespoon of coconut flour. 
Butter or coconut oil for frying (I prefer butter for pancakes).

1. Mix all the ingredients together
2. Heat butter or coconut oil in a non-stick frypan.
3. Using a ladle pour the equivalent of 2-3 tablespoons of the batter into a hot frypan.  Gently tilt the frypan allowing the batter to run into the desired pikelet/pancake size.
4. Flip the pancake when it is very slightly browned underneath and firm enough to flip without breaking.

The consistency and texture is nearly exactly the same as my original homemade pancake recipe.  However, this Paleo version is not as easy to flip as they are more likely to break apart during cooking. The way to prevent this happening is by keeping them to a smaller more manageable size and flip quickly.

Bon App├ętit!
