Paleo Pancake Recipe
The best part about these pancakes, besides that they're grain-free and only take about 2 minutes to whip up, is the way they get all crispy on the edges, just like “real” pancakes do, so they're satisfying and yummy. Oh and they're full of protein, too.
I use organic peanut butter, and if I have it I love these soaked nut butters, they taste really good, and since the nuts are soaked before grinding, some of their phytic acid is broken down and therefore won't bind with the minerals in the big glass of raw milk that tastes so good with this recipe, so we can absorb those minerals instead. This doesn't call for much, so you could just as easily grind up your crispy nuts for homemade nut butter and use that.
NOTE: The recipe below calls for peanut butter, and a commenter corrected me: “Please note that peanut butter is not allowed on the Paleo diet, as it’s a legume and not a nut. You can use almond butter instead, or no nut butter at all. I use shredded coconut in my banana pancakes.”
Paleo Pancake Recipe
- 1 banana
- 2 T. nut butter find soaked nut butter here
- 3 eggs
- Start by mixing the following together ( I use my handy dandy Hand Blender).
- Next, drop spoonfuls into a cast iron pan to fry on the stove; use plenty of butter, ghee or bacon grease. (OR if you're lucky enough to have a big Stainless Steel electric pan like I have, you could make a whole bunch at once in there). Fry 'til golden brown on each side. Enjoy!
Also, here are some more grain-free pancake options that we love around here:
- These Pumpkin/Halloween pancakes are always a hit!
- See all my healthy breakfast ideas
- Grain-free maple blueberry pecan pancakes
Hi there! Please note that peanut butter is not allowed on the Paleo diet, as it’s a legume and not a nut. You can use almond butter instead, or no nut butter at all. I use shredded coconut in my banana pancakes. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for telling me that, I’ll adjust the recipe. 🙂
I made these for breakfast but I used egg whites (it’s all I had in the fridge) and they were definitely a close second to regular fluffy pancakes! (I would say they were better but I’m not sure if I’m just excited that I found a good substitute)
Do you also make pancakes with soaked grain?
There is a restaurant where we eat sometimes that makes french batter pancakes. I think the difference is that they are made with extra eggs. Do you have a recipe?
Yep! If you google the following, check out the first 3 hits:

Tried these today. Thanks for the recipe. So simple!
My daughter makes these, minus the peanut butter. They look the same, and so, so good!

How many pancakes does the recipe make?
About 12 – thank you @Jane for that, since I forgot to note how many it made. 🙂
Made these for dinner tonight & the kids loved them! Thanks!
This is going to be my son’s pre-basketball game snack. His Coach is always talking about the value of protein and good fats before exercise. Thanks!
