{ Banana Bread Pancakes }

One of the main questions I hear quite often--What are you eating for breakfast besides eggs? This is a great question and one that I struggled to answer for a while because… well, I was honestly eating eggs and peppers for breakfast everyday. But, over time this can get really, really, really old! And I finally had to use google to my advantage to see what creative "Paleo-friendly" breakfast ideas I could find. So for the past little while, I have really started making a point to change-up what we have for breakfast… and it has actually been fun experimenting.

These lovely banana pancakes will surely satisfy that lazy Sunday morning pancake craving, and I love the simplicity of banana + eggs = pancake. {which means you can eat a whole batch yourself!} I've tried a few Paleo pancake recipes and this one so far is my favorite. The first time I made it, they came out very thin {almost like a crepe} so I had the genius idea of incorporating a tablespoon of almond flour to the batter, to make them a little fluffier. BRILLIANT! The important thing here though, is to realize it is obviously not going to taste exactly like pancakes you make from flour. However, for a pancake that doesn’t have any gluten packed flour, it is quite yummy and awesome recipe find!

 
{**Ingredients are for one person, double for two**}
  •  2 eggs
  • 1 ripe banana, peeled {preferably quite spotty}
  • 1 tablespoon almond flour {can omit--will have more of a crepe texture though}
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  1. In a blender, mix all ingredients together until smooth and lightly fluffy.
  2. Heat coconut oil in a skillet or large frying pan on medium-medium low. Moving around to coat the surface, and then pour small amounts of the mix in to the pan {I like to do two at a time}. 
  3. When the pancake bubbles on top and the underside is golden brown, flip it over using a very thin spatula. Brown the other side and then remove to a plate.
  4. Serve hot with a few slices of banana, some warm coconut butter, a drizzle of raw honey or pure maple syrup, whatever you like. Really the possibilities are endless here! Makes about 6 pancakes.
 I think next time I make these, they will be topped with coconut whip and fresh berries! Doesn't that sound yummy?? Enjoy!!!

Did you make these?? What type of toppings did you try??
