Gluten Free and Paleo Pancakes {Yummy}

We have been gluten free in our home for over two years now.

Our tummies feel so much better but we feel the best when we also eat paleo.

You can easily eat gluten free pancakes but they are not good for you.

They may be gluten free but they are also health free.

You may find yourself eating more potatoes and white rice which = sugar!

Read your labels carefully and make your foods from scratch as much as possible.

I know it is hard at first ( I KNOW) but it gets easier, you will know exactly what is in your food and you will feel so much better.

I really try to rotate our breakfasts throughout the week.

This pancake recipe has been on our regular rotation for the past few years and we all love it!

Easy, easy, easy and the leftovers make a great late afternoon snack.

Gluten Free Pancakes

(This is for one serving.  Multiply for the number of people you are cooking for)

*One egg

*One ripe banana

*One heaping tablespoon of almond butter

With a potato masher mash everything together.

I like to keep it pretty lumpy:-)

That is it.


I melt some coconut oil on the griddle and get cookin’.

At this point you just cook like regular pancakes.  Make sure the underside is nice and golden brown before you flip.

We top the pancakes with fresh fruit, fresh jam or organic maple syrup.

I hope you love them as much as we do!

    Jeanne, these look so good. Can you reheat them? My day starts so early, I would like to make them the night before.

    Thanks so much for sharing this! I made them this morning and I was skeptical but they tasted so good. They were sweeter than I expected and even my husband liked them. I ate them plain and they were very filling. Mine did not turn out as “fluffy” as yours but they were still yummy! Love your blog and thanks so much for the inspiration! 🙂

    My goodness this was excellent! I topped mine with a fruit compote that I made with frozen strawberries and blueberries sauteed with coconut oil with a tsp honey. Delish! Thank you!

    I keep meaning to come back and let you know how fantastic your pancake recipe is! My family loves them – I think I’ve made them 3 times already. I’ve told my friends about them. So nice to be able to make pancakes without any junk in them – and if you didn’t tell anyone they would have no idea that they were not the traditional cakes. Thank you so much!

    Do you have any suggestion for a substitution for the banana? My son can’t tolerate the banana but I am searching for a paleo pancake recipe.

    Any ideas on substitution for the almond butter? Can’t do that due to allergies. Have you tried anything else?
