    Shop Now
    2 ripe bananas
    3 eggs

    Blend till mixed.

    Add 4 tablespoons unsweetened dessicated coconut, blend again till thick and batter like.

    Coconut oil in pan, low heat, off you go. Makes about 4 decent sized ones.

    Ruddy delicious.

    Simple idea. I'll try this one (without the coconut, which I'm not a big fan of).

    I do similar with 1 egg per 1 oz of cream cheese (mascarpone) which makes two 6" crepes or maybe three drop scones (which is what folks that side of the Atlantic seem to call pancakes).

    I made some pancakes with buckwheat the other day. Tasted just like those made out of wheat flour.

    I made these the other day: Buckwheat Banana Pancakes (Gluten-free, Sugar-free)

    Sort of a combo buckwheat/banana. They turned out really well (if I do say so myself...).

    100% buckwheat flour, or buckwheat pancake mix, which is mostly wheat flour? I make pancakes with pure buckwheat flour and I can tell you they do not taste like wheat flour ones at all.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    The pancake recipe from the Food Lovers' blog is pretty awesome. I skipped the stevia and they were still delicious. I haven't made the topping they suggest--just used butter and a little bit of organic amber maple syrup.

    My kids hated the banana ones. I thought they were decent. We've tried a few different recipes and my fave is this:
    1 cup almond flour
    3 eggs
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    1-2 tsp cinnamon (I never really measure this part)

    Blend it up, cook it on the griddle. The kids love it with cinnamon honey butter (coconut oil, butter, about a tbsp raw honey and cinnamon melted together and shaken well). We don't have them that often, but when we do, we down a triple batch between the 6 of us.

    Agreed. The taste of buckwheat is strikingly different than wheat flour. I made rice and tapioca flour brownies and added a lousy 1/2 cup of buckwheat flour to the whole 3 cup mix to add some "body" to it. Wow, that's the last time I did that. Totally off-putting.

    Why not use rice, tapioca, potato or coconut flour? They'd all be a much better choice than cooking with almond flour. It's incredibly calorically dense, and the primary fat you're giving your kids is oxidized omega 6 outside of the MUFA content. Heating nuts is a no-no. Grinding them up, then frying them or baking them at high temperatures? That's a double no. I think I'd rather stick with all purpose flour than that...
