Healthy Pumpkin Banana Pancakes (Paleo Option)


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.).

  • ½ banana, cut into chunks

  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons honey

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • teaspoon ground nutmeg


  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.
