Paleo (but tasty) Chocolate Banana Pancakes

August 18, 2013

I’m not a great pancake maker (my wife can attest to this) but I am learning (my tastebuds can attest to this) and this morning I wanted some pancakes. After figuring out I’m not actually allergic to bananas I have begun using them in all kinds of recipes, this is the yummiest of them so far though. Enjoy! 

1 banana (you can pre-mush it if that makes you feel better) 

3 eggs

2 Tablespoons coconut flour

1 Tablespoon caocao powder (I prefer raw organic) 

1 teaspoon Coconut sugar (optional I think but worth it)

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 

1/4 teaspoon maple syrup (this is also optional but I feel like it added…something)

1 Tablespoon of ground cinnamon (you can shrink this amount but I ❤ cinnamon) 

Mash, grind, mix all that junk together until you get a batter-like substance, then put some coconut oil on a hot griddle and a use a tablespoon of batter, cook until they’re brown or as done as you like them. I served with just a bit of coconut oil and a 1/2 teaspoon of maple syrup drizzled over them. I wouldn’t recommend eating this every day or anything but it is pretty high fiber and, mostly low carb (mostly anyway). Oh yeah don’t forget the bacon!
