Rachel's Delicious Paleo Pancakes



You have probably seen around the internet the 'miracle' recipe of a banana and some eggs that somehow turns out to be this amazing paleo pancake. I tried such recipe and all I ended up with was a banana omelet.
Not very tasty and not at all like a pancake! Ever the adventurer that I am I set out to improve on this concoction and actually make a pancake I would find palatable. I am happy to announce I have made great progress and I am ready to share for the first time here, Rachel's Delicious Paleo Pancakes!

Here's the lineup of breakfast all-stars:




Ingredients:
2 eggs
1 banana
2 TBS arrowroot powder
2 TBS tapioca starch
Pinch of salt
¼ tsp REAL vanilla (check ingredients!)
½ tsp baking soda
1 TBS melted coconut oil

You will also need:
Griddle
Food processor
Turner

Let's get cooking! Pre-heat the griddle to about 275°F. Put ALL ingredients into the food processor.


Turn it on and let it run until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. You may need to scrape the sides of the bowl and let it run again. The batter will be very thin.


Your griddle should now be nice and hot! You will know it is ready when little droplets of water will sizzle and dance when flicked onto the surface. Pour your batter until you get the desired diameter of pancake.


This is the tricky part. Normal pancakes will bubble when it is time to turn them over. These do not. The timing is about the same, but look for the edges to become a bit stiff. when you can easily slide the turner under them - time to flip!




WOO-HOO!! Pancakes! Let them cook for just a couple more minutes on the other side and you are ready to go! This recipe makes about 8 pancakes. It is perfect for 2.


Top with REAL maple syrup (again, check those ingredients), fresh fruit, honey, or whatever you would like! These are a bit on the thin side so I like to stack them up 4 high and eat them so they have some thickness to them.


Give them a try and tell me what you think in the comments below. I bet you will be as thrilled as I am that pancakes are back on the weekend menu!

  1. I have wondered about those egg and banana pancakes. I couldn't see how they'd taste like pancakes. Now I don't have to wonder. :) Your paleo pancakes look good.

    1. I was totally disappointed. I should have known better. Thankfully, they were the foundation of these gems! So I suppose not a total waste.

    1. These are so healthy! I know for a fact there are tastier cakes out there - but when you can't eat grains these are AWESOME!

  4. I really need to try paleo pancakes like these. I need to go gluten and dairy free to moderate my pain from RA and I just made buttermilk pancakes for my boys this morning and did not get to eat any! I hope you will linkup with us at Small Victories Sunday Linkup, open all week long!

    1. I love plantains! Do you have to add honey or anything to make them a bit sweeter when using them?

  7. can't imagine how egg and banana could make a pancake, but it looks like you make a great pancake with just a few additional ingredients.
