NO FAIL Paleo Pancakes; Gluten Free

These NO FAIL Paleo Pancakes are the perfect healthy breakfast treat!  I’ve tried banana-egg pancakes before and had such a hard time getting them to flip.  It usually resulted in a big mess all over my stovetop and my husband would always give out a little chuckle.  The first time I tried this recipe they turned out perfect.  They actually looked like pancakes!  Who knew that coconut flour was the secret ingredient?  The best part… they taste delicious!

Finally egg-banana pancakes that will flip without a mess!!

For this recipe, I use 1 large banana.  I like to warm it up in the microwave for about 35 seconds so that it gets soft and easy to mash with my fork.  Once you’ve got your banana mashed, add 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and a tablespoon of coconut flour.  I mix everything together using my fork. You don’t want the concoction to be too smooth.  It needs some thickness so that it will flip.  If the mixture looks thin like water, you’ve probably over done it.

 I add either dark chocolate chips, strawberries or blackberries to this recipe.  Whatever I’ve got in the fridge or whatever I’m in the mood for.  You’ll want to cook these pancakes on medium-high heat.  If they don’t lift easy off of the spatula, they’re probably not done yet.

Once they lift smoothly, flip to the other side.  When they look evenly brown on both sides I serve it up to enjoy!  I almost always pair my pancakes with more fruit and bacon.  Delicious!

    Hi, I am completely new to the Paleo way of eating. Trying to lose weight. Good to see pancake recipe. Need recipes for breakfast. Trying to learn what is acceptable and what is not. No dairy, right. Any tips welcomed.

    • Reply Tracy April 8, 2016 at 4:33 pm

      Hi Ingrid! Yes, no dairy, no grains, no beans. Lots of vegetables! It takes some adjusting, but is completley doable and so many great recipes are available on Pinterest!

  • Reply Yvonne May 15, 2016 at 5:50 am

    I’m on WW and found this recipe on Pinterest while searching for other recipes. This intrigued me as there were not that many ingredients. I had some coconut flour in the pantry that I haven’t used in a while, because I didn’t know what to use it for! And I’m very picky with my bananas (I like them slightly firm, not overly ripe). However, we had a couple of small bananas that were almost completely brown, and this was the perfect use for them! Just tried these for breakfast, and they were so yum! I think this will be my Sunday morning go-to from now on! Thanx for posting 🙂

    Do you know if applesauce would work instead of bananas.

    • Reply Tracy June 10, 2016 at 11:06 am

      I’ve never tried it, but my gut would say it would be difficult, because the bananas keep the consistency of the pancake. I think applesauce would be too thin, but if you try it and it works, let us know!!

  • Reply Jantine July 5, 2016 at 12:08 pm

    I tried these yesterday, and was amazed! I too had tried banana-egg pancakes and was slightly disappointed by the amount of fuss and the texture, but these are perfect! I had them with maple syrup and it was heaven. Thank you so much!

      Glad you had success, Jantine!!

  • Reply Melissa July 17, 2016 at 6:05 pm

    Hi does this make just the three pancakes? Would I be able to double the recipe to make more? I know that sounds like a silly, obvious question but I know there are recipes where you actually can’t for some reason. Thanks!

    • Reply Tracy July 17, 2016 at 6:13 pm

      Yes, just makes 3, and you can double it! ?

  • Reply krystin seiver August 24, 2016 at 2:26 pm

    Hi! Only 1 Tablespoon of coconut flower? It looks like so much more in the photos. Just want to make sure Im reading it right! Thanks

    • Reply Tracy August 24, 2016 at 2:34 pm

      Yep! That’s all you need. It only makes 1 serving (about 3 pancakes).

    Just made these and WOW! So yummy and easy. Thank you for your recipe! Perfect consistency and flavor!

  • Reply M March 15, 2017 at 3:45 pm

    What is a “t” of flour? Usually I would translate that as tablespoon, but I wonder if that is correct here?

    • Reply Tracy March 15, 2017 at 9:15 pm

      Big T is tablespoon, little t is teaspoon. ??

  • Reply Christine March 21, 2017 at 1:52 pm

    I’ve never tried the 2-ingredient banana/egg pancakes, but heard that they can be difficult to flip. That intimidated me, so I tried this recipe this morning. The pancakes flipped perfectly, and tasted delicious! I appreciated that they did not taste eggy or banana-y at all; they reminded me of the inside of French Toast. My only modification was to add a pinch of salt to the batter. Thank you for the recipe! I look forward to making it again.

    Are these Whole 30 approved?

  • Reply Gaby September 14, 2017 at 5:22 am

    How many calories for the whole recipe?

  • Reply Cayla October 29, 2017 at 3:02 pm

    These were good! I used 2 tablespoons of coconut flour though, and I added a tsp of baking powder (not sure if baking powder is paleo or not, I’m just gluten free.) Really good! I’ve tried many of the “just mash a banana and egg” pancake recipes, and they have all been a fail. Not this one! Just cook on low heat.

  • Reply StephG November 7, 2017 at 2:02 pm

    Is there a guesstimate on how many carbs there are in this recipe?

  • Reply Emily February 3, 2018 at 7:20 am

    Oh man, I just made these for the first time, and they were great! I added a pinch of salt, but otherwise changed nothing. No-fail is right! Best part is that they were much sweeter than I expected.

  • Reply Elise Razzano March 3, 2018 at 2:33 am

    Just made these and I’m in love, these are fantasic. Only things I did different were add 1/2 teaspoon AC vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon cocoa powder. Please do yourself a favor and make these!!

  • Reply Laurie January 6, 2019 at 7:21 am

    If I don’t use maple syrup they should be w30, right?

    • Reply Krista January 9, 2019 at 12:59 pm

      I don’t think making pancakes is Whole30 approved. Yes the ingredients are, but not the making of “treats” and such.

  • Reply Christina February 27, 2019 at 10:00 am

    These look like they are worth trying. In the past my coconut flour pancaked fall apart. It seems like you figured out how to fix that.

  • Reply Yolanda April 17, 2019 at 3:43 pm

    Just wondering what’s the carb count

  • Reply Lexie February 17, 2020 at 7:52 am

    Was hoping to meal prep. Do you think they would be fine in the fridge for 5 days? then microwave them?

    • Reply Krista Pool February 18, 2020 at 10:11 am

      I wouldn’t suggest trying to keep them for 5 days but I honestly have never tried. Let us know if you do.

  • Reply Lisa March 23, 2021 at 7:04 am

    These were awesome! I added a little salt like one of the other reviewers suggested. For those that can’t look at liquid and guess how to split in in 3 (like me), it was 1/3 cup each pancake with a little extra for the last one. I’ll definitely make these again.
