Paleo Pancakes



Wheat Free Pancakes
Wheat Free Pancakes


Ingredients

1 banana
2 eggs
1 tbsp almond flour/ground almond (optional - often I make them without, but its a great way to add more protein)
2 generous tsp coconut oil



Method

  • Mash the banana
  • Add the 2 eggs and whisk using an electric hand whisk until light and fluffy, then add the almond flour and whisk a bit more
  • Gently melt a tsp of the coconut butter in a frying pan, then pour in half the 'batter'
  • Keeping the temperature really low is vital.  Once the top has solidified, flip over to brown the other side (less time required, it's already cooked and just needs to brown). You can expect them to take at least 20 minutes to cook.
  • Give the mixture another whisk and add some more fat to the pan before cooking the other half of the mixture

The 'batter' is added to a pan and cooked on a very low heat

They are so sweet and delicious it's hard to believe that they don't contain anything 'bad'!
