In deciding to try the Paleo diet I wanted to eat as many food I recognize as possible in order to make it easier to do long term. I am a big fan of protein pancakes because they are easy to whip up and perfect for when I get home from the gym for dinner. When I found this recipe I knew I wanted to try it. I made only slight modifications.
Directions: Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Just smoosh the banana into the mixture with your hands and mix to incorporate. You could use a fork but that wouldn’t be as much fun.
Paleo Banana Pancakes
- 4 eggs (room temperature) ~ ¼ cup coconut flour ~ ¼ tsp sea salt (I used Kosher course salt) ~ ½ banana mashed ~ 2 tsp pure vanilla extract ~ 1 tsp baking soda ~ ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
- Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl.
- Just smoosh the banana into the mixture with your hands and mix.
- Add some coconut oil into a medium heat pan and add dollops of batter into the pan.
- Flip after 2-4 minutes.
- Optional: Add a few slices of banana to the pan and flip after a minute to glaze both sides.
- This made 3 medium sized pancakes and 3 smaller pancakes.
- Serve with pure maple syrup, and top with the grilled banana. Grass fed butter is also an option.
These look good! Does the coconut flour or coconut oil leave a coconut taste?
The coconut flour adds a little bit but not much. It mostly tasted like banana bread. The coconut oil burns off so it doesn’t leave a taste in my opinion.
I always think of Paleo as stuff I wouldn’t want to eat, but this looks so good and easy, perfect recipe in my book!!
I think the simpler the better. Some can over complicate recipes to make them taste better but that just makes me not want to make it.

Thank you. So far so good, I am down 12 pounds in 2 weeks. I’ll be sure to do a post about it though.

They look really good. I’d of course cover them in butter and syrup, ruining the whole vibe. hahahahah
As long as it’s raw maple syrup and grass fed butter! Bwahahaha!
Those look so much prettier than the ones I have made! I’ll be over the next time you make them 😉
The coconut flour really thickens it so it helps. You are more than welcome to pop on by. 😉

You seriously have the best recipes, these would be a huge hit in my house on a weekend morning 😉
Thank you. It’s a perfect weekend breakfast. Tastes like banana bread and healthy too.
i make something similar-ish – 1 banana + 1 egg + some peanut butter. blend it all up and voila, pancakes. i top with frozen blueberries (the pancakes heat them up). i used to eat them almost every morning, but i think i overdosed lol
Ohhh peanut butter. I an’t have it on paleo but maybe some almond butter. Now I am hungry again. I tend to do that too, eat something so much I get sick of it, like eggs right now.
This recipe looks so good. I love the flavor and texture bananas give to pancakes! The glazed bananas on top look good too!
I usually just use eggs and coconut flour so the banana was a really nice addition, and the cinnamon and vanilla put it over the top.
Dang this makes me want pancakes.
There is always room for pancakes! 😉
Banana pancakes were the best growing up. Love that this recipe is both paleo and gluten free! 🙂
It was such a good find and I think the cinnamon really made it taste like banana bread.
Pete has made these several times but they always come out looking more like scrambled eggs than actual pancakes. They do TASTE good though!
Oh boy! Use this recipe. It was just like Banana Bread and the almond flour really gives it the texture of a regular pancake.
Lindsay Templeton says
yum!! I have made similar ones but with oat flour so I’m pumped to try these with coconut flour!
I love the coconut flour because it really fluffs them up.
