This is a fast delicious high protein breakfast packed with antioxidants. It's very adaptable and can be made paleo friendly by omitting the flour. I hope you like it as much as I do! I top mine with organic butter and organic maple syrup or raw organic honey.

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat; add coconut oil. Pour 1/2 of the batter into the hot oil and sprinkle 1/2 of the blueberries onto the batter. Cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter and blueberries, using more coconut oil if needed.

Cook's Notes:

This is very adaptable, you can add whatever your tastes are, for example: chocolate chips, coconut, walnuts, etc.

Substitute almond extract for the vanilla extract, if desired.

I would like to add some notes: you can grind some flax seed with the chia for added omega 3's etc. Also you can use coconut flour instead of wheat flour just cut the amount to about a tsp. for the coconut flour. Read More

I really enjoyed these pancakes. I was tempted to leave out the flour but made as written. I think I will sub the flour for a little protein powder next time or just skip it altogether. Instead I just sprinkled some protein powder on the top (along with some cocoa) to give the illusion of sprinkled sugar. I'm not into sugar these days and these pancakes were perfectly sweetened with just the banana. Read More

Easy, healthy and suuuper tasty!! I made a bunch of little pancakes that were a great addition to our brunch - easy to eat and snack on for our 2-year old, and definitely a staple for us in the future. I substituted the flour with ground oats. Yum!!! Read More

these are very good! the pancakes stayed together nicely unlike 90% of Paleo pancake recipes. I used black cocoa powder with made the pancakes very dark but gives it a deep rich cocoa flavor:). yum!!! Read More

So in all fairness I tweaked this a bit and combined another recipe from here. Instead of flour I ground up 1/2 cup of whole oats and 2 tablespoons of chia seeds. Added the cinnamon vanilla salt and banana. I also used cooking spray instead of coconut oil. Once finished I smeared on some homemade almond butter and maple syrup. Pancakes came out very good and much healthier than the traditional boxed store brand! Just need a healthier substitute for the maple syrup. Read More
