Gluten Free Banana Walnut Pancakes

gluten-free-pancakesWords can not describe how sinfully delicious these gluten free pancakes are!!!  They cooked up super fluffy and for an added bonus, I dabbed a little all  natural peanut butter in between each pancake as I piled them high.  Supremely delicious and very filling!  I did not use protein powder to the recipe, so you might want to have these with some scrambled egg whites to get a protein packed breakfast.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again- your options to eat healthy are so delicious and easy to make.  Why on earth would anyone settle for mass produced junk that is sitting on a shelf for months waiting for you to buy it?  These pancakes are gluten free- which means that they will NOT cause a firestorm of inflammation in your body.

Paleo / Gluten Free Coconut Flour Pancakes

This is probably the best Paleo coconut flour pancake recipe I have tried. It’s very easy and fast to prep the ingredients.  If you cook even semi-Paleo, you will have everything in the house already. If not- go get them because all of the ingredients are worth keeping in your baking cabinet if you plan on making more Paleo recipes.

It’s about 5 minutes worth of prep and less than 10 minutes of cooking.

Paleo Coconut Flour Pancake Recipe


  • 2 egg whites
  •  1/4 cup coconut flour
  •  1/2 cup almond milk Unsweetened almond milk (the vanilla flavor adds a bit of good sweetness to the recipe)
  •  1 teaspoon vanilla
  •  1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  •  1/8 teaspoon salt
  •  1/8 teaspoon cinnamon (or more if you want)

Combine everything in a bowl. Whisk together real good to get all of the lumps out. At first it may seem like the batter is too thick and dry- but they cook up real moist and delicious!

Make sure your skillet is hot and coated with a FF spray or coconut oil. I used an ice cream scooper to measure the batter and pour it in the skillet.

Cook about 4-6 mins each side- depending on how hot your skillet is. You want them to be golden brown on each side.

I poured real Maple Syrup over mine. They were good!
