Paleo ‘Pancakes’

For those of us following the Paleo or Primal Blueprint diets, pancakes are a thing of the past. At least, that’s what I thought until I ran across this recipe on Mark’s Daily Apple. It’s definitely more carb-centric than much of what he suggests but as he states many times, those of us following the Primal Blueprint can allow for an indulgence now and then and still keep on track with our goals for health, wellness, weight loss, etc. That said, this is a delish and healthy indulgence and one I’m excited to make again this weekend. I hope you enjoy it too!

Paleo pancakes. Good for paleo diets, primal blueprint diets, gluten free, dairy free, grain free diets.


  • 2 bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 Tbs almond butter
  • fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil


Mash the bananas, add the egg and mix well.

Stir in the almond butter, adding more than a tablespoon if you want a more pancake-like texture.

Warm the coconut oil in a pan and pour batter into small cakes.

Brown on each side and serve warm topped with fresh blueberries.
