Hello, pancakes anyone? Just because you went grain-free doesn’t mean you have to live without the occasional plate of pancakes! I was messing around in the kitchen and came up with these grain free banana pancakes and I think they turned out pretty well. Bonus: they’re high-protein!
If you’re new to the grain-free/paleo lifestyle, remember that grain-free breads will have a much different taste and texture than grain-based breads. It’s very similar to the taste you get from a crepe. Still, they’re very delicious and the banana adds a nice bit of sweetness. You can add maple syrup or leave it – it’s entirely up to you.
I did throw in some baking powder (I use this kind) which is not technically Paleo. Some people are very true to the paleo definition and avoid baking powder, some people HAVE to avoid baking powder, and others figure it’s not much and once in a while is okay. I’ll leave the decision up to you – you can try substituting with baking soda, but I haven’t tried that one so I can’t guarantee the outcome. See notes at the end if you do try.
Here’s the grain free banana pancakes recipe – have fun!
Grain Free Banana Pancakes
by Danielle @ lovelovething.com
- 1 ripe banana
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup coconut flour – you can also usually find this for a good price at Costco or Sam’s
- 2 tablespoons coconut milk – learn how to make your own coconut milk here
- 1 tablespoon Collagen Hydrolysate – this is gelatin powder and this is the brand I use – you can use either the gelatin or the collagen powder
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil – I get this brand from Costco
- 1 teaspoon baking powder – this is the brand I use, see note if substituting with baking soda
- extra coconut oil for greasing pan/griddle
- medium sized mixing bowl
- griddle (like this one) or pan
- Simply mix all ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl using a whisk. Mix well, do not over mix.
- Add the extra coconut oil to your pan or griddle and cook on low-medium heat.
- Flip when the pancakes have risen and are bubbly.
- Continue cooking through until done.
- Makes about six to eight 4″ pancakes
- If you are using baking soda instead of baking powder, then you’ll need to add an acid to the mix. Add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to the coconut milk and let sit for a few minutes before adding the coconut milk to your batter.
