Banana Bread Pancakes (Super Fluffy, Nut Free, Paleo Pancakes)

Why Nut Free?

I kind of avoided coconut flour pancakes for a while. I was convinced there could not be a fluffy pancake with such a dense flour. I digress. These bad boys are pancake perfection. I was asked to make nut free paleo recipes for a client, and I made a primal, chocolate version of these which a pretty ridiculous looking … like brownies! My low carb pancakes are usually my go-to made with almond meal, and they’re super delish. But I am always looking to make recipes that fit VARIOUS dietary needs. So testing nut free recipes was actually really fun. What I loved MOST about the recipe was how TALL they were. So I knew I had to remake a version for my blog. Here is it, and it’s awesome.


Then my kiddo, who as many of you know LOVES pancakes for breakfast. Fitting, since his name is Jack ­čÖé Well, Jack loved these and I love that 2 of them fill him right up. The recipe makes 4 pancakes… there are only three pictured here because little man wasn’t having the regular meal photo shoot today. LOL. He’s usually a pretty good sport about it, but I wouldn’t want to wait on these either.

Carb Loading?

I know most of my recipes have been really low carb lately, keto. But… while I am still eating this way, why deprive my family from healthy carbs? I did snag 1/4 of one of these, slathered some butter on and holy moly, heaven. I sure do plan on having a proper pancake someday again soon. It will probably be these. But… until then, I’m going to stick to what I’m doing until I figure out my situation.┬á
