If you’ve tried pancakes made from almond or coconut flour and find them slightly grainy, you’ll really love the silky, airy texture of these Almond Banana Pancakes. The flavor is sinfully close to banana bread; add a little vanilla and cinnamon to the batter if you really want to get decadent.⠀
For those who are #keto or are restricting carbs for weight loss purposes, this recipe might not fit into your personal Primal plans. For others, it might be part of your 20%. And for others that are extra active or have already achieved your preferred body composition, this recipe might be a perfect fit. (Kids tend to love it, too, by the way.)⠀
• 2 ripe bananas⠀
• 1 egg (or 2 if pancakes aren’t holding together well)⠀
• 1 heaping tablespoon of almond butter⠀
• Mash the bananas, add the egg and mix well.⠀
• Stir in the almond butter, adding more than a tablespoon if you want a more pancake-like texture.⠀
• Warm butter in a pan and pour batter into small cakes.⠀
• Brown on each side and serve warm.⠀

In less than a minute the ingredients bake into a perfect Primal-friendly treat. Check out our bio link for the recipe. #liveawesome #primaltreats⠀

Bacon pancakes sound like a sinful breakfast treat, but these slightly sweet, mostly savory cakes require no repentance. 🥓🥞 Fluffy, moist and salty with just hint of sweetness, bacon pancakes can be served with a light drizzle of maple syrup, or a dollop of sour cream and a hit of hot sauce. ⠀
