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!
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.
Printable Recipe at the bottom of the page.
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!

You had me at No Fail!
yum! can’t ever go wrong with pancakes!
YUM! I have a whole jar of coconut flour and was trying to find ways to use it without having to bake a whole loaf of bread! Thanks for sharing can’t wait to try this!
Just tried this recipe and they were delicious!! Came out to 3 small pancakes and they filled me up. Can’t wait to let my hubby try next time! <3 <3
Great, Sandy! Glad you enjoyed them! Thanks for stopping by.
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.
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!
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 🙂
So glad to hear! Thank you for letting us know you love it Yvonne!
I never leave reviews….but I had to!!! These were awesome!!! Thank you for sharing it! I will be passing this recipe on for sure!!
Glad you enjoyed them, Danielle!! Thanks for passing the recipe along!
Do you know if applesauce would work instead of bananas.
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!!
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!!
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!
Yes, just makes 3, and you can double it! ?
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
Yep! That’s all you need. It only makes 1 serving (about 3 pancakes).
Any idea what the calorie count on these is?
Just made these and WOW! So yummy and easy. Thank you for your recipe! Perfect consistency and flavor!
What is a “t” of flour? Usually I would translate that as tablespoon, but I wonder if that is correct here?
Big T is tablespoon, little t is teaspoon. ??
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?
How many calories for the whole recipe?
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.
Is there a guesstimate on how many carbs there are in this recipe?
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.
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!!
If I don’t use maple syrup they should be w30, right?
I don’t think making pancakes is Whole30 approved. Yes the ingredients are, but not the making of “treats” and such.
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.
Just wondering what’s the carb count
Was hoping to meal prep. Do you think they would be fine in the fridge for 5 days? then microwave them?
I wouldn’t suggest trying to keep them for 5 days but I honestly have never tried. Let us know if you do.
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.
