Snow Day Pancakes (Grain Free/Gluten Free/Dairy Free)πŸ₯ž

We made it to Friday! I have about an hour left to enjoy the snow (from the window) because it’s going to hit 55-degrees today! And Sunday? 64! Seriously, weather, make up your mind! I’m OK with it though because walking the dogs in warmer weather is so much more enjoyable. πŸ™‚

Yesterday morning, I decided to make my favorite pancake recipe. These pancakes are healthy, paleo-friendly, Whole30 approved, grain free, gluten free, dairy free, and made without any refined sugar. Sometimes, I’ll make a giant batch of these and leave them in my fridge to eat throughout the week. I pop them into the toaster oven, and they come out perfect.Β πŸ₯ž
I made a big stack of these before heading out on a cold winter walk with the dogs. I did pack hot tea, too! πŸ™‚ I love to use blueberries, but you can use any fruit or fillings you want. Peaches, pears, chocolate chips, cranberries, and apples are great ingredients to throw into these pancakes as well.

What I love about the banana-egg pancake is that they are high fiber and high protein! They are a perfect breakfast option in my opinion. Most pcankes don’t have protein, but these have 20 grams of protein for the whole stack! You could even add your own protein powder to add more. I like to have eggs on the side, too!

All you need is: 3 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla, (1 egg white + 2 whole eggs), one large banana, two tablespoons coconut flour, and your choice of filling! If you do not have coconut flour, you can replace it with protein powder, almond flour, gluten-free flour, or any flour type you want! The flour helps the pancakes flip better, and fluff up a bit! You don’t even have to use flour; it just tastes better with a little more substance.Β The reason I choose coconut flour is that it’s a bit drier!
Mash the banana with a fork, and add the eggs! I highly recommend using a SUPER-ripe banana to make it naturally sweeter.Β 
Add the vanilla, and mix all the ingredients (minus the fillings) until clump free! Some people use the blender on a pulse to get the perfect texture. Sometimes, I’ll add cinnamon, cocoa powder, nutmeg, or other fun spices to change it up.Β 
Mix in the flour!Β 
Heat a pan to medium-high and spray the pan, so the pancake does not stick. Non-stick pans are ideal for these! Pour a little into the pan and cook each side for about two minutes. Add in your fillings after 20 seconds. You can always use the spatula to peek underneath to see if the pancake is ready to flip.
Plate & enjoy! I always use a drizzle of maple syrup on top. What’s a pancake without syrup?Β

    Can’t wait to make these this weekend! I was looking for something like this last weekend, definitely should have checked your blog haha. I tried making banana protein waffles..they were a disaster! I like sweet and savory together. And definitely syrup, I even put a little on my eggs and bacon sometimes!

      I hope you enjoy, Meghan!!

      Banana protein waffles can turn out, but make sure to add some sort of almond or coconut flour! SYRUP WAS MADE FOR EGGS AND BACON! AND SAUSAGE!

    YUM! These look perfect. I love how few ingredients they have in them too. And the addition of flour is so helpful. I’ve tried to make protein pancakes before that were a HOT mess, but these look like the recipe works way better than the one I was trying!

    I’m a sweet AND savory person! I’ll always order a savory dish with a yummy pancake on the side and it’s perfection.

    I love chocolate chips, but blueberries make me think of my childhood :). And I’m a no syrup girl! Unless I’m really going all in haha. Then, all bets are off!

    Omg I need to try this! I made banana and eggs pancakes once, but they ended up being too mushy and chewy, not pancake like at all. I bet adding coconut flour will totally help!

    Loved the recipe, simple yet gorgeous. Will definitely be making again and again. Thank you!

    sweet or savoury breakfast? Depends on the mood and weather-the colder and rainier it is the more I want warm and comforting yet nutritious while during those rare warm months of British year I can go with a bit of chopped fruit and a coffee.
    Blueberries or chocolate chips? Blueberries,raspberries and raw cocoa nibs! πŸ™‚
    Syrup or no syrup? No syrup,but a sprinkling of cinnamon.

    These sound great for my non-vegan family! I’ll definitely give them a try. I like sweet breakfast most of the time. I’ve eaten pancakes everyday this week…
    1 banana
    1 cup oats
    1/2 cup water
    tsp vanilla
    .5 tsp baking powder
    Mix in the blender and cook on medium heat. They taste just like banana muffins! I use 1 TBS of pure maple syrup on top.

    These look so good! I love love making pancakes on Sunday and eating them on weekday mornings. Have you ever tried Kodak cakes? They make high protein pancake mix and I’m obsessed. http://www.kodiakcakes.com

    These look delish!! Just an FYI for anyone doing a Whole30, any foods resembling unapproved foods – even made with compliant ingredients, aren’t compliant but they are perfect for after!

    I prefer a savory breakfast on weekends, but during the weekdays oatmeal is my go-to!

    I go through phases of pancakes though πŸ™‚

    YES TO THE SYRUP! And maybe I’ll squish in a chicken inbetween my two pancakes for pancakes and chicken instead of waffles and chicken (yes, it’s a thing!)

    Whoops, just saw you suggested a blender! Ha, I need to read the whole thing before I comment.

    If you have a nutri bullet, I would suggest using that for mixing (a blender works fine, the nutri bullet is just easier to clean). I make these all the time when I want breakfast comfort food without it weighing me down but mine are simpler – 1 banana, 1 egg, pinch of cinnamon & splash of vanilla for flavor, and maybe 1/2 a teaspoon or so of baking soda (makes them fluffy like real pancakes) – I get about 3 decently sized pancakes out of that.

    I love this recipe! I do a similar one that’s always my go-to for a quick and easy breakfast (and I used it ALL the time time when I did the W30!) I just throw in: 1 banana, 2 eggs, and 1/4 cup almond flour into my stand mixer, mix and cook in coconut oil! I def want to try adding in the vanilla extract for a little added sweetness. Thinking I might make a big batch of these this weekend for quick breakfasts next week! Thanks for sharing! And for your ?s:

    1. sweet AND savory – I love pancakes + bacon or chicken sausage!
    2. blueberries πŸ™‚
    3. ALWAYS syrup!

    Oh wow, so excited to try this recipe. Thanks for the nutrition information too! πŸ™‚

    I don’t have a particular preference for sweet or savoury breakfasts, but I always like my pancakes sweet. With chocolate. And with syrup! πŸ˜‰
