  • gluten, sugar, and dairy free pancakes, amazing!

    For the simplicity of these pancakes they truly are amazing and I'm officially hooked. Maybe everyone already has heard of them however, I just discovered them and felt the need to share the wealth!

    1 - banana
    1 - egg
    1 - tbsp of coconut or almond flour

    Mash up banana and mix all ingredients together, I sometimes add blueberries, cinnamon or almond butter, fry them on the stove in coconut oil and TADA, you've got delicious, very moist, fulfilling pancakes! Enjoy!

    Break the addiction. Pancakes are fake food. Cooked almond flour is rancid and does a lot of oxidative damage to your arteries.

      Wow a little HARSH its one tbsp and she said either coconut or almond flour. I see nothing wrong with that. I suppose go with the coconut flour, but at least its not 2 cups of almond flour.

      I would focus on more standard primal breakfasts, and make this a treat for psychological sake. It might remind you too much of hte real thing, but if it doesnt then I don't see the harm.

        Sounds good, I'll try them - thanks! Here's another recipe similar - but chocolate muffin form minus the flour. OOOOH MY@ I actually just blogged about it today. Recipe below, pic on blog

        Mix in bowl:

        1 Ripe banana - squashed/mashed
        2T Almond butter
        1 beaten egg

        2 T cocoa powder (pure, no sugar)
        1/4t instant coffee

        When mixed, pour into greased muffin tin, or small mug. Depending on whether you make 2 muffins with this or one big one will change the time a bit. I make 2 mufffins with this mix and microwave on high of 2 minutes. Enjoy paleo chocolatey goodness with no guilt!

          I do a banana, two eggs, 1T rice flour, and 1T fat (usually butter). They are great. And it's no addiction, it's about a once every two or three month treat. I don't see it much different than an omelet, to be honest.

            Thanks for the reply knifegill.. I have never heard that about coconut flour before, I'm still pretty new to this and learning lots everyday. Although yes you can substitute almond flour instead or cut all flours and just do a tbsp of homemade almond butter. I don't eat them for breakfast just every now and again when I have a craving for something sweet and filling, thank you also activia, again I'm very new to "primal eating" and am struggling to come up with various meals so I don't get tired of the same old things day in day out, it's a looonnngg learning process.

              Not everyone is as spartan as you, so calm down a bit. She was just sharing a paleo recipe so that people who are interested can have more options for their breakfast, no need to call her addicted and what not. I agree that almonds aren't great, but she said coconut flour too, which imo is perfectly acceptable. You can't go through life trying to avoid everything that is potentially harmful, you'll end up a breatharian or a nutcase...which are basically the same things.

                Does anyone know what flour is the best to cook with?

                  Coconut flour or rice flour (if you are active). I would use these recipes as "treats" not daily staples. You'll learn It takes time/practice and your tastes will change.

                      I rarely use flour,but when I do it's coconut. If I want a bread substitute I just go with oopsie bread, which is a dumb name for an awesome food. Not sure if coconut is the best, but it's what I prefer to use after comparing it to various other nut flours and so on.

                        dinner leftovers, its actually what I had for breakfast this morning (lifted last night so its the one day I'll eat breakfast at breakfast time). You'll get used to it.. On the weekends I have breakfast at noon because I enjoy my omelets and they are quick/easy.

                        Otherwise check out egg muffins, steak/eggs, bacon/eggs, sausage/eggs, various omelets (you can throw all sorts of stuff in it to make it different), hard boiled eggs with homemade mayo or avacodo.

                        Here's some other ideas... I would shoot for doing at least 2 new recipes a week. Get different cuts of meat and learn some good slow cook recipes as well.

                        OK this isn't breakfast but is my fav recipe (besides a quick and dirty stir fry)

                            Thank you for this. My little ones are always asking for pancakes or waffles. My oldest gets upset when I explain why she can't have them, so I think I will have her help me make these sometime so she can see the whole foods going in instead of gobs of wheat flour.

                              OMG you just made my entire week with this recipe. I've been craving chocolate muffins ever since I walked past them at Costco.
