Hazelnut Banana Paleo Pancakes.

Pancakes are my comfort food.  I don't miss a whole lot of things on this paleo primal diet, but my husband makes pancakes about three or four times a week and I cry a little inside each time.  I tried those paleo banana egg pancakes that are all over the webz, but they were a disgusting banana omelet mess.  Serious gross, folks. 

So last night I set out to create something yummy.  I adore foods flavored with banana (although strangely, I'm not a huge fan of plain bananas) - and a good ripe banana gives a wonderful natural sweetness.  So I used this as my base and went from there.  These Hazelnut Banana Paleo Pancakes are moist and dense and nutty and wonderful.  They're not trying to mimic a fluffy IHOP flapjack, they stand alone and are delicious in their own right.

Hazelnut Banana Paleo Pancakes, Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon real vanilla extract

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder (optional)
  • 2/3 cup hazelnut flour
  • pinch of salt

Hazelnut Banana Paleo Pancakes, Directions:

  1. Put bananas, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla, salt, and coconut oil into a bowl and emulsify with a stick blender until it's liquified (alternately you could throw it all in an upright blender).
  2. Add flour and baking powder, blend until fully incorporated.
  3. Cook on a low/medium heat non-stick skillet or griddle. 
  4. Top with butter and drizzle with real maple syrup.

*yields about ten small pancakes*
