The three ingredients I use are eggs, banana, and almond flour!  Super easy.  Sometimes I add baking powder which makes them a little more fluffy, but it is optional, they come out fine without it.

When my son was growing up I made pancakes every morning. It was the only breakfast he would eat.   I wish I had this recipe back then.  These are so simple and taste great even without maple syrup. There is plenty of sweetness from the bananas.  And don’t worry about your blood sugar,  the protein in the eggs and fiber in the almond flour balance the sweetness of the bananas.

This super healthy breakfast will get your brain and body powered up and inspired for the day ahead.  You have to admit they look pretty good.

They also travel well. Wrap them up in a little foil and take them with you when you go out. You can eat them out of your hands.

They come out best when small. I use 1 tablespoon of batter for each pancake.  The recipe makes about 16 little paleo pancakes, enough for 2 people.  If you have 2 pans it takes less time.

The batter will be thinner than “traditional” pancakes. The key is to let them cook long enough to firm up before flipping them.  If they are falling apart turn down the heat and cook them a little longer.

3 Ingredient Paleo Banana Almond Pancake Recipe


  • Author: Ingrid DeHart - EatWellEnjoyLife.com
  • Prep Time: 3 minutes
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 8 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x

Description

Three ingredient pancakes made in a blender with no grains, no sugar, and lots of healthy protein.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 medium banana
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons blanched almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder (optional)

Instructions

  1. Put all the ingredients into the blender.
  2. Blend for 15-20 seconds, until smooth (don’t over blend or it will get warm).
  3. Pour into a bowl.
  4. Heat a griddle or heavy saute pan on medium-low heat. Lightly brush with butter or ghee.
  5. Add batter in small circles – about 1 tablespoon per pancake.
  6. When the edges start to look dry and the pancake is firm enough to flip (about 3 minutes), flip and cook another minute or two on the other side.
  7. Place onto a plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
  8. Serve alone or top with maple syrup, berries, fruit sauce or chocolate chips.

Notes

If the pancakes are hard to flip, you may need to turn down the heat and cook them a little longer. They will hold together and flip easily when the heat is low enough for them to get firm without burning.

You can  refrigerate cooked pancakes and reheat in the oven the next day.

The pancakes can be made without a blender: In a bowl mash the bananas until very smooth. Add eggs and whisk until completely combined. Add the almond flour and baking powder and whisk until the batter is smooth.

      Hi Michael,
      Glad you liked the article. As long as you have protein and fat with the bananas to prevent a blood sugar spike you are good to go.
      Thanks for your thoughts. I always love hearing from you.

    Hi Ingrid! I’m from the Philippines. I just tried your recipe today and absolutely loved it. I didn’t use a blender though; I just mixed everything together with a fork. I also put 1/4 cup of batter instead, making a total of 4 pancakes 🙂 Thank you so much for this! More power!

      Hi Aria,
      Thank you for telling us about your cooking experience. I always love hearing how the recipes come out for you at home. Good to know the pancakes can be made without a blender. Making them bigger is also cool. Thanks for sharing I’m sure others will appreciate it too!

    Absolutely loved this recipe! I admit I was a little doubtful after making several similar recipes. I cooked up some sausage links and wrapped them in the pancakes for pigs in the blanket! My daughter is a pancake snob and they were a huge hit with her. She is making sure we keep this recipe in the permanent family recipe book!

    Hi! Just curious if these can be made vegan, with a flax egg as a substitute for chicken eggs. I also wanted to point out that these are actually not vegan, because of the eggs.

    • Ingrid says:

      Hi Alexandra,
      I haven’t tried them with a flax egg but I think it will work. Please post if you make it so we know. Yes, you are correct it is not vegan I don’t know what I was thinking. Thank you for pointing that out to me. I changed it to vegetarian.

    I just made these. I used un-blanched almond flour because that was all I had and I so wanted to use that one over ripe banana. It is so good. Especially with real maple syrup.thanks for the awesome recipe.
