Flourless Banana Pancakes Recipe

The search for the perfect Paleo pancake continues! Carrot cake pancakes are one way to do it, but what if you’re not into a lot of almond flour? Well, here’s a Sunday brunch recipe that doesn’t rely on any kind of flour at all – in fact, it’s completely nut-free, so even if you’re avoiding nuts for some reason, you can still enjoy.

The recipe calls for vanilla extract and cinnamon, but you could add whatever spices you like – bananas make a tasty delivery vehicle for just about anything. The instructions also give amounts for one person, but it’s easy to modify for a group; just use the ratio of 2 eggs:1.5 bananas. For example, for four people, you’d use 8 eggs and 6 bananas.

You’ll get best results with this recipe if you use ripe bananas: go for the ones that already have brown spots. And with just eggs as a binder, you’ll also find it easier to make smaller pancakes: big ones have a tendency to break apart when they’re flipped. Pile up a big stack of pancakes on your plate, top it all off with some berries and maple syrup (or honey, if you like), and enjoy!
