Classic Pancakes

pancakes

This is a simple, grain-free pancake recipe that’s easy to master. They’re not too eggy, like paleo pancakes can sometimes be, and the banana gives them a touch of sweetness. Pancakes are the perfect base for fresh fruit, jam, or maple syrup. Make them small, about 3 inches in diameter, so they’re easy to flip (and to raise the cuteness factor).

Ingredients
  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 Tablespoon applesauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2-4 teaspoons coconut oil to coat the pan

Instructions
  1. To a medium bowl, add the banana, eggs, almond butter, coconut flour, applesauce, and baking powder. Use a fork to mash and blend until smooth. There should be no large banana chunks.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add about 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to coat the pan.
  3. Pour small pancakes, about 1/8 cup of batter and no larger than 3 inches in diameter. Flip pancakes when bubbles appear in the middle, a little over two minutes. Then cook the other side for about one minute. Be sure to add a little extra coconut oil between batches.
Recipe Notes
  • *KEEP THE TEMPERATURE LOW. It may seem too low, like the pancakes aren't cooking much, and that's okay! It should take at least two minutes before they begin to bubble in the middle and are easy to flip.
  • The trick to making these is finding the right burner temperature. Just under medium should work well, but your oven may vary. When in doubt, turn it down.
  • If your pancake batter sizzles violently when it hits the pan, or your cakes are burning or sticking, your temperature is too high. You may also need to add a little more coconut oil to the pan.
