Paleo Breakfast Week: Banana Coconut Pancakes

It’s Wednesday, hump day, the middle of my Paleo Breakfast week extravaganza, and what better breakfast would add some motivation to your day than pancakes?? I have been playing with gluten-free paleo pancake recipes for a few months now and have posted a few recipes (pumpkin and zucchini) but this one is by far my favorite. The banana flavor is sweet and is a great compliment to the subtle coconut flavor, this dish reminds me of Hawaii… If I could, I would eat these every day!

Paleo Banana Coconut Pancakes

Serves 1 – makes 4 3-inch pancakes


  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 small ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 heavy dash of cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes
  •  (optional) Coconut Nectar as a syrup topping


  1. In a small bowl  mix the mashed banana, egg and cinnamon
  2. Add the coconut flour and coconut flakes and stir to combine
  3. Let sit 2 minutes
  4. In a medium frying pan heat the coconut oil on medium
  5. Using a spoon drop 1/4 of the batter into the frying pan and flatten with the back of the spoon, repeat until all the batter has been used
  6. Cook 2-3 minutes and flip
  7. Cook another 2-3 minutes
  8. Drizzle with a little Coconut Nectar, serve and enjoy.
