Greetings, fellow humans!
If you have some bananas that are getting a little "past prime", or just craving pancakes, or perhaps you have kids or non-paleo guests who just REALLY want pancakes... you will sooner or later need this recipe.
While not what I'd call a low- carb breakfast, they're quite tasty, and a whole lot more nutrient dense than standard pancakes. (even gluten-free ones are usually just gluten free junk.)
I finally nailed the perfect paleo pancake recipe... I think.
These can also be used as a "tortilla-esque" wrap for any kind of goodies.
Blend in food processor or blender until liquefied:
- 3 ripe (or maybe past ripe) bananas
- 6 eggs (ideally local and from happy outdoor hens)
- 1/2 tsp (or so) cinnamon (optional)
- 1/tsp (or so) vanilla extract (optional)
- 1/4 cup tapioca flour
- 1/2 cup almond (or cashew, or walnut) flour/meal (this can be made by pulsing nuts in a food processor, but it is LOUD)
- To make crepes, simply add 1 or 2 more eggs to the batter.
Cook them just like standard wheat pancakes. Coconut oil or grass-fed butter (I use Kerrygold) is ideal for frying. The tapioca allows them to hold together even at regular pancake size.
Due to high banana content, not much syrup (if any) will be needed.
A nice option is to drop some chunks of pre-cooked bacon to the batter as they are frying.
In my home, we often smear each pancake with almond butter and eat it like a taco.
Of course, the old standard of butter and maple syrup is a hit, but will increase your sugar intake.
Please, do NOT use agave nectar! (It's not the health food we're being lead to believe.)
If you're wanting a recipe with half as many eggs and no bananas, Barefoot and Paleo has another recipe that I really like as well.
Ok, now go outside and play!
Much love and respect- Mo the human
