My smallest loves pancakes but I hated to constantly make him those enriched flour and unhealthy pancakes. So as I entered my journey into paleo I discovered these absolutely heavenly pancakes and have modified the recipe to make them even more perfect. Now I don't have to feel like a bad mom when I make him his favorite almost everyday.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil, or more as needed

  • 6 large bananas, sliced

  • 6 eggs

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin coconut oil

  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon coconut oil on a griddle set to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) or a skillet over medium heat.

  2. Place bananas in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add eggs, 3 tablespoons coconut oil, vanilla extract, salt, and baking soda; beat until batter is smooth and fluffy.

  3. Gently ladle batter, about 1/4 cup per pancake, onto the hot griddle; sprinkle with cinnamon and arrange walnuts on each pancake. Cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 3 to 4 more minutes. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more coconut oil between batches.

Cook's Notes:

I prefer to use all organic ingredients and I would recommend you give it a try. It makes a huge difference in taste and your health. Don't be afraid to modify by using different spices or nuts. Try also blueberries.

You can also mix batter in a blender or food processor.
