Flourless Banana Pancakes (paleo, gluten, sugar free)


Here is a super simple recipe for you to make for breakfast this coming weekend. All you need are some ripe bananas, eggs and a little baking soda. I spiced mine up with some ground cinnamon, vanilla and a dash of salt. The darker color these pancakes have, comes from the chocolate almond butter recipe I posted earlier this week. I could not resist adding this incredible chocolaty nut butter to my pancakes. The nut butter is completely optional, you can leave it out or use any other nut butter of your preference.

    We just made these and they were awesome! We used plain almond butter since we did not have any chocolate, but they still came out tasty. Will have to try it with chocolate next.

    These were simply amazing!!! Thanks for posting! I added dark chocolate chips to the last batch and sliced strawberries on top and it reminded me of a crepe. yummy

    My daughter is allergic to almonds, is there something else I can substitute for the almond butter?

      You can use any nut butter, or for nut free, you can use sunflower seed butter or coconut butter.

    I don’t have any ground cinnamon handy. Can I omit it or replace it with something else?

    • adriana April 6, 2014 at 11:43 am Reply

      Mariam, you can omit the cinnamon.

    What is drizzled on top of the pancakes? It is light and looks like something other than maple syrup.

    • adriana April 7, 2014 at 7:12 am Reply

      Lee, it’s raw honey.

  10. Courtney August 7, 2014 at 6:22 am Reply

    Would honey also work in this recipe, to react with the baking soda?

    • adriana August 7, 2014 at 9:35 am Reply

      Courtney, I don’t think it will be a problem to add some honey to this recipe.
