Perfect Paleo Pancakes

Paleo Pancakes

Ah breakfast, the meal that seems to be defined by eggs and pancakes and one we always seem to skip. I am guilty as charged for skipping breakfast or keeping it defined to the few basics. One of my most valuable lesson since starting to eat Paleo, is knowing that I can have anything I want for breakfast and it’s ok. Today though, I choose these perfect paleo pancakes.

Who else thought that once you transitioned to a Paleo lifestyle, your lifetime favorite comfort food of pancakes was out the window? Have no fear, paleo pancakes are here.

The pancake has quite an illustrious history. Given this is a Paleo recipes/health website, you can make the assumption that I obviously do not stand behind traditional, gluten full junk pancakes. Instead, I create recipes that are easier to make and taste better like these paleo pancakes.

I have also made quite a few other recipes for paleo pancakes, and by far the most famous and popular one is the one on page 95 of The Paleo Kitchen. Want to see? I am going to show you anyways. Look at these amazing pancakes:

These are the closest thing I have ever come to pancakes and they are delicious. They are easy to flip as long as you keep them reasonable size, around 6 inches across.

  1. I like the sound of these, easy and just a few ingredients. I am struggling with mixed food preferences in my household and this looks like a winner on all fronts. The comments are helpful, too. Thanks Caveman and supporters.

  2. I made these this weekend. They were great. I added some sliced strawberries to top them and in between the short stack of pancakes. Delicious! My wife loved the flavor, but found the texture to be a little odd.I am thinking about adding a 1/4 cup of almond flour to give them a boost in the texture department. All in all, I thought they were great!

  3. These were awesome – my 3 and 5 year olds gobbled them up! I added 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 tsp baking soda and chocolate chips. I cooked a few on the stovetop then decided it was much easier to bake them like cookies. I made pretty small pancakes (probably about 3″) and baked them for 10-12 min at 400 degrees. Thanks for the awesome, easy recipe!

  4. I’m not sure what i did wrong but these were a disaster for me!They just wouldn’t hold together. Do i let them cook for longer to get them to set? Thanks!

      1. Hi George, These are great! My wife and I make them almost every weekend. I cannot seem to find the Calorie count though. Are you able to provide that? Thanks!

  5. I only used one banana, one egg, and scraped the bottom of my natural almond butter, a dash of cinnamon, and they were great. I would make the full size if I was feeding my husband too but I just wanted to say that if you want to make just enough for yourself it still works great. I maybe had about 3-4 tbsps of almond butter but I’m not sure. I would definitely make these again, they taste just like banana nut bread to me. Yum!

  6. My daughter requested these for her 14th birthday “breakfast for dinner”. They were a huge hit! Served with scrambled eggs and BACON. Yummy! P.S. We LOVE your banana bread recipe, especially the chocolate cinnamon swirl banana bread! Thank you! :)
