Grain-free, naturally sweetened pancakes (gluten-free, Paleo)
One of our friends, who never cooks during the week, has a tradition of making creative, many-ingredient grain-free pancakes in the blender with their 2-year-old on weekends. He throws in all kinds of stuff like maca and unflavored grassfed protein powder and MCT oil and they usually turn out. (We've been over there on weekend mornings twice now and we've had them!)
I've made banana/egg/almond butter pancakes before but I wanted to try something more cakey and I remembered I'd used a coconut flour recipe before with modifications like banana for sweetener. So I made them again, noting the recipe I used, and am glad I remembered my changes!
Grain-Free, Gluten-Free Banana Pancakes
- ¼ c. + 2 tbsp coconut flour
- ½ c. + 2 tbsp coconut milk
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 4 eggs
- 1 banana
- Butter for pan
- Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender.
- Heat butter in a frying pan and pour pancake batter into pancake shapes in pan. Flip when bubbles appear.
Makes 4 HUGE pancakes or 6-8 smaller ones. (Serves 2.)
Serve with more butter and toppings of choice! I love a little nut butter and maybe jam for a treat. Of course maple syrup is good, too!
You can't taste the banana flavor hardly at all; the bananas just give a nice sweetness.
So tasty and nourishing! We ate them with bacon from our hog share and leftover sautéed zucchini from our CSA (because I love to have veggies at every meal). I highly recommend them for your next quiet weekend morning breakfast!
