These are the best ever fluffy Paleo pancakes in the world. No one can ever tell that they are actually healthy and gluten-free.
Last weekend I had my beautiful niece over for a sleepover party! It was super fun - we had a game night and did lots of drawing and artwork! All three of my girls do crafts and artwork any chance they can get, especially my 11-year-old daughter. She's completely obsessed with tons of arts and crafts.
Her favorite right now is clay and big girl coloring books aka grownup coloring books. The pages take her a couple of hours for each page. She shuts herself in her room, turns on some music and colors every chance she can get. Anyway, back to the sleepover and breakfast. . . .
In the morning we had breakfast - and when it came time to decide what everyone wanted to eat, it was unanimous. We all wanted pancakes. This Paleo pancake recipe makes it possible for everyone to have the same meal in the morning. Not to mention the fact it is packed full of bananas! These are very light and fluffy pancakes; you could never tell they are super-healthy compared to "normal" pancakes.
As a side note for this specific recipe: These pancakes need to be cooked at a somewhat lower temperature than regular pancakes to help them set a little better before flipping. Take care to not let the heat rise above medium.
It may be a little more work to get out and measure three types of Paleo flours, but you really do get the best of all three types of flours and minimize the negative aspects of each type of flour. It makes it so you can't taste any one type of flour.
These pancakes are so filling, compared to normal pancakes. I am always so full after eating them and often eat them for dinner with some Paleo bacon and some fruit, like the blueberries shown in this image. I also love that they are a good way to get healthy carbs on the Paleo diet. I used to be so afraid of carbs before I went on the Paleo diet. Then I discovered that good carbs are - well, good for me. And there's something about the satisfaction you get from eating healthy carbs that really helps give you energy throughout the day.
I love to have fluffy pancakes for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! They are so versatile, you can have so many different toppings with them depending on what you are feeling at the moment. What are your favorite toppings for your pancakes? Are you a waffle or pancake person?Print

I’ve just started whole30 and these are the absolute best pancakes I’ve had compared to other recipes, for keto and paleo too. I subbed the banana for applesauce since that’s what I had on hand. They’re fluffy too
These are delicious!
I think you are an absolute "Doll" ... I have used so many of your recipes I owe you a tremendous THANK YOU! You are a genius!! This pancake recipe is "the bomb!" Again ... you are amazing! ?
You're so kind! Thanks for the nice comment and I'm so glad you like the recipe.
All that sugar in store bought cereal would make a monster out of anyone. The other day I was in the grocery store and saw someone with a cart chocked full of those cheap sugary cereals in the huge bags. I couldn't believe it.
Oh my GOODNESS. I love these!! Trying to not eat the whole batch. Just starting off being paleo and found your site. I topped mine with flax seed oil (grew up having it on pancakes & toast-my dad works at a plant that processes them) and then blended some strawberries with a little bit of real maple syrup. So so good. Going back now for seconds! 🙂 Thanks for posting this recipe!
Just made these and really enjoyed them! The texture is lovely! There seems to be a discrepancy in the amount of mashed banana in the recipe. I used 3 T. Next time I will try it subbing puréed pumpkin for the banana and add pumpkin pie spice and a tsp of vanilla. Highly recommend for my paleo friends
Thank you for developing such a good Paleo pancake recipe.
Can the pancakes be frozen?
We aren't big into freezing things and so I haven't tried it. It is worth a try if you think it would. Let us know how it works out if you try it.
My kids love them!!! They going to be my pancakes recipe now
Yay! glad you guys liked them!
What is the serving size? You give quantity of servings, 8, but not serving size. Are we talking about 1, 2, 5? Also what is the typical size of the pancakes when you're making them. Small would be about 3 inches in diameter, medium probably around 4.5 inches, and large 6 to 7 inches.
Well I would say it depends on how thick you like your pancakes. We usually would do about medium size and thin. It is more about preference and how you like them so it would make less than 8 if you like them thick and big.
Awesomesauce! Thank you.

Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I went paleo recently and was craving pancakes. I made these and they were delicious. My family didn't even realize they were paleo. 🙂 So yummy!

I am trying really hard to get my kids off commercial cereals. I didn't realize what monsters I created by allowing that junk in my house.
