banana pancakes | paleo style

IMG_20130512_184623

Remember when I wrote about becoming a cavewoman [this post]?  Well, it’s been three weeks living the paleo diet and I’m feeling fantastic. I’ve dropped a couple of kilograms as well!!!

I’m not a good baker on the best of days, so I’ve had a few kitchen fails with the paleo baking (burnt muffins, failed bread…) but these pancakes are awesome! I got the recipe from Ultimate Paleo Guide [here] but it’s not just for paleoists; they’re flour-free, gluten-free and tasty, so give them a try!

Paleo Banana Pancakes

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup almond butter (like peanut butter but made from almonds)
  • butter for frying
  • toppings of your choice*

*if you’re paleo, keep it in the family. I topped mine with goats yoghurt, maple syrup & raspberries (but caramelized banana would have been awesome).

METHOD

  • mix ingredients together, fry in batches
  • serve with toppings
  • feeds two people
fry it up!
fry it up!

Yummo!!! Enjoy!
