Healthy Pumpkin Banana Pancakes (Paleo Option)

Rated as 3.89 out of 5 Stars

"These quick and easy pancake medallions are very healthy and delicious. My 5-year-old loves them! If you don't have pumpkin on hand, just use a whole banana instead of half. Serve warm with your choice of toppings (maple syrup, jam, fresh fruit, honey, etc.)."

  • Ready In

  1. Beat banana, pumpkin puree, flour, eggs, honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a bowl until smooth.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium heat. Drop batter by small spoonfuls onto the griddle to form 1 1/2-inch to 3-inch pancakes and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 1 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 1 to 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

These are a decent gluten-free pancake. I used coconut flour in place of the all-purpose. These definitely have a strong banana taste, so don't expect them to be like traditional pancakes. The...

I'm not a big pancake fan - but loved this recipe.

The taste was very good -lots of banana flavor- but the texture was kinda off. Some of the pancakes looked like pancakes and others -well they just looked like a glob. It might be partially my f...
