Paleo Pancakes

As I’ve discussed before, breakfast can be a real obstacle when following the Paleo diet. It’s easy to feed kids meats, fruit, nuts, and vegetables throughout the day(okay, maybe not always the vegetables are easy), but kids constantly crave cereals and pancakes. Telling your kids they can no longer eat pancakes is a surefire way to make your kids hate the Paleo diet. Well, the good news is that you don’t have to deprive your kids of pancakes. Inspired by Mark over at Mark’s Daily Apple, I’m making Paleo Pancakes a once a week treat.

Here is what you’ll need:

  • 3 eggs
  • 3 bananas
  • 1/4 cup all-natural almond butter(Option: use peanut butter instead)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • Coconut oil
  • Complementary fruits such as berries

And here is how to make it:

  1. Mash bananas until smooth in a large mixing bowl using a hand blender or manually with your preferred tools
  2. Whisk eggs in a separate bowl
  3. Mix eggs, almond butter, and cinnamon into your large mixing bowl
  4. Line skillet with coconut oil(re-oil pan after cooking each pancake to avoid sticking)
  5. Heat skillet on low
  6. Pour batter on skillet in small amounts making palm sized pancakes
  7. When bottom of pancake is brown and pancake begins to solidify, carefully flip to cook other side until brown
  8. Enjoy by themselves or with fruit, natural honey, or natural maple syrup

Serves 4
