Recipe: Flourless Banana Pancakes

The search for the perfect Paleo pancake continues! Not into almond flour? Well, here’s a Sunday brunch recipe that doesn’t rely on any kind of flour at all. Just eggs and bananas and you got Paleo flourless banana pancakes!

The recipe calls for vanilla extract and cinnamon, but you could add whatever spices you like – bananas make a tasty delivery vehicle for just about anything. Or leave them out if you’re lazy.

You’ll get the best results with ripe bananas that have brown spots. And with just eggs and baking powder as a binder, you’ll also find it easier to make smaller pancakes: big ones have a tendency to break apart when they’re flipped. Pile up a big stack of pancakes on your plate, top it all off with some sliced bananas, berries and maple syrup (or honey, if you like), and enjoy!
