The original recipe for these paleo pancakes was meant for waffles but it worked fine for pancakes.
The ingredients are pretty simple. You’ll need coconut oil for greasing the grill also (not shown below). I used Trader Joe’s Almond Butter as I find it works well and is cheaper than at other stores.
Peel the apple and banana then puree it in a food processor.
Using an electric mixer whisk, whip the almond butter on high for 2-3 minutes until its smooth and “fluffy.”
Add the puree to the almond butter along with the remaining ingredients and continue to mix it all together with the whisk until all the ingredients are combined. (Doesn’t look too much different, eh?)
Grease your grill and when it’s hot, spread a little bit of coconut oil (you can also use olive oil) around it. Drop 1/4 cup of batter onto the grill for each pancake and cook until browned. Roughly 3-5 minutes per side.
Don’t turn the burner up too high or the pancakes will burn easily. This is what they should look like.
Since I am a banana lover, and not everyone in the family is, I added some sliced bananas to some of the pancakes so they could taste more banana-y for me. At this point, you could add blueberries or small chunks of apple if you’re so inclined.
I’m really glad I added the sliced bananas because they gave it more flavor. Next time I probably will add cinnamon also.
And there you have it — paleo banana pancakes.
Simple recipe, simple meal.
- 1 medium banana, ripe
- 1 medium apple, peeled and cored
- 1 cup smooth almond butter
- 2 medium eggs
- 1 tbsp arrowroot powder
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- oil for greasing your grill
- Puree apple and banana in a food processor.
Using the whisk on an electric mixer, whip the almond butter on high for 2-3 minutes until smooth and fluffy.
Add all remaining ingredients (including apple & banana puree) and whip all the ingredients to combine them together.
Grease the grill with coconut or olive oil (I used coconut).
Use about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Don’t put the heat too high or the pancakes will burn (or be more chewy than you’d like).
Allow about 3-5 minutes of cooking per side but after your first few pancakes you’ll know what works best for your stovetop.
