My smallest loves pancakes but I hated to constantly make him those enriched flour and unhealthy pancakes. So as I entered my journey into paleo I discovered these absolutely heavenly pancakes and have modified the recipe to make them even more perfect. Now I don't have to feel like a bad mom when I make him his favorite almost everyday.

Directions

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon coconut oil on a griddle set to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) or a skillet over medium heat.
  2. Place bananas in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add eggs, 3 tablespoons coconut oil, vanilla extract, salt, and baking soda; beat until batter is smooth and fluffy.
  3. Gently ladle batter, about 1/4 cup per pancake, onto the hot griddle; sprinkle with cinnamon and arrange walnuts on each pancake. Cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 3 to 4 more minutes. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more coconut oil between batches.

These were tasty with fresh strawberries this morning. Blended ours in a food processor, used pecans, hemp hearts, added an extra egg and a heaping tbsp. of almond butter so I could omit the coconut oil. Lower heat for longer definitely seems to make all of difference.

Loved this recipe! Was skeptical at first, but they were so tasty and sweetened themselves from the banana alone! My two girls (8) LOVED them. Even my husband loved them and he can be difficult when it comes to "healthy" eating! I agree with the others who have said that cooking on a lower heat setting for longer, really helps. I also found that if I made the pancakes a bit smaller, they held together better, as the larger pancakes would sometimes take longer in the center and then the edges would get a little crispy/dark (from the eggs frying.) Either way, will be working on this again to perfect my technique! Thanks for the share!

These were yummy. Since I was out of walnuts, I used cashews instead of walnuts and just added to blender while mixing. Needs to cook a little longer on lower heat as I use cast iron. I will definitely make again.
