Paleo Protein Pancakes

It's pancake season, y'all.

It's pancake season, y'all.

I'll be honest. I was a little skeptical about this recipe. I mean, pancakes are meant to be indulgent, right? They're supposed to leave you stuffed and regretful. These beauties won't!

They're so light, but filling. Sweet, but not too sweet. Breakfast-y, but you can eat them anytime, cold or hot. I mean, what can be better? I originally found this recipe at this lovely website, but I tweaked it to make it my own! Feel free to pin it and let me know how yours turn out!

Ingredients

  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 medium sized eggs
  • 1 tbsp almond butter (optional)

Steps:

  1. Smush banana in medium sized bowl. Make sure it is nice and smushed before you add the rest of the ingredients, as it is easier to blend this way
  2. Add 2 eggs, cinnamon, and coconut flour to the bowl.
  3. Mix contents together until a batter forms. NOTE: It is okay if the mixture is lumpy. You are using a banana after all. And keeping it lumpy helps the cake flip once it is on the skillet
  4. Spray skillet with coconut spray, set to medium heat
  5. Pour half of the mix onto the skillet.
  6. Flip the pancake when you can get the whole spatula under the cake.
  7. When both sides are sufficiently cooked, take pancake off pan and repeat steps with the reminder of the mixture (there should be enough for one more pancake).
  8. (optional) Spread 1 tbsp almond butter on one pancake, and place the other pancake on top. Now you have a pancake almond butter sandwich!
  9. Eat and enjoy! (Yields 2 pancakes)

These pancakes are hearty, full of protein, and really easy to make. Bananas are pretty carb heavy and almond butter is not a low calorie food (though it is a great source of fat and protein!). I recommend cutting the sandwich in half and eating half as a snack and saving the other half for another day (Or go for it and eat the whole thing! I won't stop you.).
