Recipe 15: Banana pancakes, almost success story

To make sunday morning a little special for us, I made some paleo pancakes. Even though you are allowed to use wheat flour, frying pancakes can get tough. But when you are not allowed to, it can render this job almost impossible to accomplish. So I have studied a number of recipes on chowstalker and compiled my own that I believed to work. All that I ask now is a divine help.


  • 5 ripe bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons of coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • coconut oil


Peel the bananas and whip them using food processor or mixer in the bowl. Whisk all the eggs in the separate bowl and add them to the main bowl together with honey, cinnamon and coconut flour. Whip nicely. So far so good, I guess. But now things start to get rough. Embrace yourself, dark sorcery is coming. Heat up coconut oil in a large pan. I recommend to use just about full teaspoon of oil for every batch of pancakes. When heated up properly, cast pancakes inside. Do not forget to mix "dough" on regular basis as the eggs and flour tend to sink at the bottom of the bowl. Fry them until their base starts to turn gold, then flip and continue until done.

The finest art is to flip them without destroying. They are very fragile. As you can see from the final photo, I was, say, only partially successful with this.
