Perfect Paleo Pancakes

Paleo Pancakes

So before I even start my typical blog post rant, I will just refresh your memory on why I am posting this recipe.  Yesterday on my Facebook Page I posted a picture of bacon cooked inside of pancakes and it was amazing, and you all asked for the recipe.  You can see the picture HERE.  So are you hungry now?  This is the recipe I used to make that.  So I cooked my bacon like I traditionally do, in the oven until it comes out nice and crispy which is PERFECT. I then took the cooked bacon, placed it in the skillet and poured this amazing pancake batter over the top until I had, wait for it……….. Perfect Paleo Pancakes with bacon inside.  Your welcome for changing your life.

  1. These are delicious!! I’ve made a similar recipe that used almond flour instead of almond butter, and they were pretty good, but these are way better, especially the texture. I had no problem with them burning or being gooey in the middle. The only alteration I made was I added a little bit of pure vanilla extract & a little bit of cinnamon. My new go-to breakfast! Thanks!

  2. I love this recipe, but have a couple of questions – I’m going camping soon and would like to make these for breakfast one morning.

    Can I double or triple this recipe to serve more people?

    Do you think I could pre-make the batter? I was thinking I would bring the batter (in a sealable jar and in our cooler, of course), but I’m not sure how well the batter would keep.

    Thanks in advance for your help – love the website and I’m really loving The Paleo Kitchen!!

  3. I was a little put off by the mushy texture when I made these fresh, however, letting them rest and dry out a day in the fridge AND eating them cold was a very nice treat! Thanks for the super easy recipe!

  4. Even better: mix one egg, one mashed banana, spoonful of your choice of nut butter in a ramekin dish. Pop it in the microwave for about 2 minutes and it fluffs up like a mini soufflé. Quicker, just as easy and delicious!

  5. Sounds great to me. I always keep overly ripe bananas in the freezer for times like this but after I pick up a jar of almond butter I’m going to see how they fare to making these like a lolipop since they have to be made small in diameter.

  6. I am a paleo beginner and I have to say these were amazing and so simple. I LOVE banana bread and since starting paleo last week I have really been missing my breads. I was getting sick of eggs, veggies, and almonds so I turned to the internet and was very pleased to find these. You do have to be patient though! but man, they are just what I need for a breakfast on the go. I also made the muffins that one of the comments suggested and they were great as well! You can’t eat them warm, because they taste like banana flavored quiche, but I let them cool completely and I could not tell a difference between them and my favorite banana bread recipe. LOVE it! Thank you for this!!

  7. Excellent recipe. It turned out great! One thing… my mistake… nothing to do with the recipe, I didn’t read the part to make them tiny at first. So, my first two pancakes were regular pancake sizes and were a little moist in the middle, so the outside ended up being too dry while I was waiting for the inside to cook. HOWEVER, when I poured them in the smaller size as instructed, it turned out great.

  8. Mer. Lol. Mine didnt turn out :(. And one thing I habe to say is 350° doesnt help me when it comes to cooking ON the stove. I dont have a temperature for the flame. Only high medium and low. So I heated it to medium but it didnt seem to be hot enough (each stove is different) so I heated it a little hotter than medium and followed the directions. They flipped fine because I used a nonstick skillet. But they came out mushy. I even cooked them 4 minutes on each side which you only said 2-3 minutes on each side. Iused sesame seed butter but it is similar to almond so I figured itd be fine. Not sure that the nut butter is the issue. I tried turning down the burner as well. Nothing worked. Still mushy. Ate them as to not waste anything but it tasted like I was eating wet undone pancakes. Not a fan.

    1. They worked in the pan for me but I am lazy. So, I added blueberries, 1 tsp of baking soda and 1/2 tsp of baking powder and turned them into muffins. They are delish! I baked at 350 for 30 mins. Something to think about…

      1. Hi,
        The amount of baking soda for the muffins is george’s amount PLUS yours?
        Also, the blueberries, do you blend altogether so that they mix well? Or just toss them whole before baking?
        Can’t wait to try them, either pancakes or muffins.
        Thanks to both george and muffinminded for the recipes!

  9. Very good! My son, who is not a fan of banana bread or muffins was not crazy about them, but my daughter and I loved them. It is true that they need to be cooked slowly, but with patience, they came out perfect!

      1. What is your favorite brand of almond butter? I’ve been eating paleo for last couple of months and haven’t tried almond butter. My paleo friends have steered my away b/c of the flavor. I think maybe it’s b/c of the brand they are using… Any advice?

  10. This was my first time making a recipe like this. I was skeptical at first that pancakes could be made without flour so I made 3 different types of pancakes for brunch (hedging my bets that my everyone in my family would like at least one kind). The other 2 types had flour so I can say the texture of these are slightly different but not much. These were actually very good and very filling. Great recipe!
