Do you ever find yourself craving something you loved pre-Paleo, but you just haven’t found the right Paleo version to satisfy you? It was like that for us and pancakes for a long time, but after a recent Paleo pancake binge, we’re bringing you a list of 15 of the best recipes! We also made sure to include a good assortment of sweet and savoury, as well as some odd balls that just so happen to be completely irresistible. Enjoy!

There’s not much we can say about his recipe except that it’s an absolute must try! Nothing says a comforting breakfast more than the combination of lavender and huckleberry.

11. Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes – by Elena’s Pantry

Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes, what else more could we want? These give us an instant flash back to our childhood memories and we bet every kids breakfast dreams will come true with this recipe.

We gotta say, the thought of Mexican spice mixed with a salted Dulce de Leche infused into a pancake had us curious. These pancakes are definitely the most decadent on the list, but they are oh-so-good and perfect when looking for a treat. In fact, they would make an impressive dessert as well.

13. Hazelnut Pancakes with Blood Orange Sauce – by Eat Drink Paleo


Yet another recipe from Eat Drink Paleo that we had to share. The original recipe can actually be found in Irena’s latest cookbook Eat Drink Paleo, but we were privileged enough to feature it on our website. No description necessary, the picture alone will get your taste-buds all worked up!

Enjoy your bacon and eggs all in a pancake! They even have a secret ingredient, gelatin, to add extra health benefits. To think you could serve up such a classic American breakfast in such a unique way.

15. Grain-Free Coconut Flour Blueberry Pancakes – by Primally Inspired

A traditional pancake recipe turned Paleo! The nutty flavor from the coconut pairs up nicely with the sweetness of the blueberries. If you can get your hands on some wild blueberries, even better!
