Paleo Banana Pancakes

There are about a million versions of these super simple banana-and-egg pancakes. Yes, the combination sounds super weird, but it works. And these work with my new grain-free, refined sugar-free diet right now!

Here is how I like to make these little pancakes. (David and Joshua will eat them too. Libbie, my pickiest eater, is not a fan. But she doesn’t like regular banana pancakes, either. She is weird.)

Banana Paleo-Cakes

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 6 minutes

Total Time: 11 minutes

Yield: 7-8 small pancakes

Serving Size: 3 pancakes

Banana Paleo-Cakes


  • 1 large, ripe banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 T coconut flour
  • 2 T butter (ghee, if you are Paleo) or coconut oil for frying
  • maple syrup or honey


In a bowl, mash banana well. Beat in eggs. Stir in coconut flour.

Melt butter, ghee, or coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Scoop heaping tablespoons of batter into the hot oil/butter. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side, flipping once, just like a pancake, until cooked through.

Once cooked, drizzle with pure maple syrup or honey.


Butter is fine if you haven't cut out dairy, but a true Paleo diet does. Most Paleo followers will eat clarified butter (ghee), which has all the milk solids skimmed off. Coconut oil is a great alternative, though, if you want to avoid butter altogether.
