Who wants to give up pancakes? Nobody! The great news is that even when practicing a Paleo lifestyle you definitely don’t have to.
This Flourless Paleo Pancakes recipe includes just four ingredients and requires just four necessities: a food processor, a small sauté pan, a spatular and an appetite for melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness.
1 small banana
1/2 cup walnuts
1 tablespoon coconut oil
Extra coconut oil for grilling
Add the egg, banana, walnuts and coconut oil to a food processor.
Pulse until a batter is formed.
Melt about one flat teaspoon of coconut oil in a sauté pan over medium heat (repeat this step for each pancake) and then place 2 to 3 scoops of the batter in the center of the pan.
Lift and swirl the pan slightly every so often to ensure the coconut oil surrounds the batter throughout the cooking process. Then, using a spatula, press inward around the edges of the pancake to ensure that a compact outside edge forms. Continue this process until the underside of the pancake is compact enough to be flipped.
Slide your spatula underneath the pancake and flip gently.
Press down slightly with the spatula to flatten the pancake marginally and allow to cook for about another minute before serving.
Repeat these steps with the next pancake…and the next!
This recipe makes about four pancakes, each 3-inches in diameter.
For added decadence and a sweet touch to the moist pancakes, top with fresh strawberry slices and sprinkle with cinnamon or cacao powder before drizzling with honey or agave.
Tip: Flourless dessert is not the easiest of items to make. Don’t be too judgmental on your pancake shapes and first round attempts–they’re a delicate business and are mastered with practice.
