Paleo Banana Pancakes

Makes 3 small pancakes, serves 1

  • 1 full sized banana (ripe)
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • Coconut oil for frying
  • Maple syrup (optional)
  • Strawberries, blueberries or any fruit of your choosing for a topping

Step 1 – Blend the banana, egg and cinnamon in a food processor.

Step 2 – Heat the coconut oil in a non stick frying pan on medium heat. Using an 1/8 – 1/4 measuring cup, spoon the mixture onto the pan and wait until bubbles appear. Carefully turn over and cook on the other side.

Step 3 – Add maple syrup, fruit and ENJOY!


  • I freeze ripe bananas so they are readily available for cooking
  • These pancakes are smaller than a “traditional” one made with flour. Also, because there is no flour holding the ingredients together it can take a few attempts to find the right “flipping” technique for you. After many ugly pancakes, I have found that an 1/8 – 1/4  cup of the mixture works the best.
