Here’s a grain free twist on one of your favorite recipes. Paleo Banana Pancakes bring you one of the most traditional breakfast recipes – Pancakes! But we’re using nutty almond flour and sweet bananas. Each pancake has about 3 grams of protein, and will remind you of your favorite banana bread!

I like to top mine with a drizzle of honey, fresh fruit, and a handful of walnuts. These almond flour pancakes also have a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavors of the spices pair amazingly with the banana flavor. Get ready for your new favorite Sunday morning routine!

Let’s get the obvious out of the way first. These almond flour pancakes are completely gluten free. But, I’ve received a lot of emails lately asking about grain free recipes. And while I don’t avoid all grains myself, I am in the business of delicious food. So I spent my lazy Sunday perfecting the perfect paleo banana pancakes. Just for you!

And to be completely honest, I’m digging them. Or digging into them, whichever. 

They’re nutty, which compliments the banana really well. Top that with cinnamon, drizzled with honey and walnuts, and a mountain of fresh fruit. I’m completely on board.

Originally, I tried to make these paleo banana pancakes as 100% almond flour pancakes. But as it turns out, every batch I tried would burn too quickly. Or it would be really hard to flip without falling apart. I probably made about five batches total before I made the executive decision to add tapioca flour.

The tapioca flour really made all of the difference here, so I wouldn’t skip it. It also adds to the great fluffy texture!

Just in case you don’t have almond flour on hand, you might also want to check out my banana oatmeal pancakes. They’re not grain free, but they are delicious. And sometimes, that’s what you’re looking for.

You may have also noticed that this blog is really picking up. That’s right, my friends. I’ve made it my personal goal to bring you a recipe a day, every weekday, for the foreseeable future. That’s right, I said weekdays. I need the weekends to cook! 

And I do have a few more paleo recipes in the works! Muffins? Of course. Breads? Well…

You’ll have to stay tuned to see!
