    Paleo Banana Bread Pancakes

    Paleo Banana Bread Pancakes made with less than 8 ingredientsPaleo Banana Bread Pancakes by rachLmansfield

    I’ll tell you what..Paleo Banana Bread Pancakes is some seriously exciting stuff for a Tuesday morning.

    You babes know my endless love for all things banana bread, pancakes and my latest paleo craze, so I am super excited to share these pancakes with you.

    We basically hit the trifecta…

    My Mom used to always make me whole wheat banana pancakes with chocolate chips on weekends when I was growing up. They were absolutely amazing and my favorite thing to eat, but I never felt “good” after. I felt bloated, uncomfortably full and somewhat tired afterwards. Probably due to that “carb coma” we all get after eating too many carbs and not enough fiber or protein.

    These Paleo Banana Bread Pancakes couldn’t be more perfect to satisfy that sweet pancake stack we all crave.

    Made with no regular flour or refined sugar, these pancakes are filled with that banana and chocolatey flavor in every bite. 

    Plus they are made with ONE bananas whose company’s culture really stood out to me.

    ONE Banana has a mission to be a better banana company. They want to make a difference in the world through people, because they believe in people. They have made it their mission to define themselves that no matter what the business is, it all comes down to one thing, people. ONE Banana believes that people are essential in everything we do and say so we should put them first. “Create change for the better, ONE banana, ONE person at a time.”

    It is so amazing and admirable to see companies like this in the industry.

    In addition to bananas, you will also need these essentials:

    Almond flour


    Coconut oil

    Almond milk

    Chocolate chips

    Do you put the mashed banana in with eggs & milk? Calls for it in ingredients but no mention of mashed banana in directions.. Unless I’m totally missing something.

    Any recipe that allows me to eat more banana bread is a winner in my book. Loving the sound of these little paleo pancakes.

    I made these this morning, they were really tasty! But they were hard to flip and kept falling apart so I added more almond flour and that helped. Maybe I did something wrong when making the batter? Next time I make these maybe I’ll add less almond milk. Regardless, these were really good!

    I absolutely LOVE these! I make them about 3x a week for my boys and they devour them! Such a nice way to use up those lingering ripe bananas and I just refrigerate the leftovers for the next morning. They reheat great 👍

    I made these with flax eggs instead of real eggs, and i don’t know if that’s why I failed so badly but it was the biggest cooking fail of all time. Oh well…Gives me an excuse to make pancakes another day:)

      yes i do not recommend flax eggs in paleo recipes! when they are recommended it’ll be in the recipe itself. xx
