Paleo Banana Pancakes

Hellooooo December!

Anyone else in LA enjoying this rain? I am in love with this weather. It inspires me to sit at home, read a book and write. Oh, and to make pancakes! I am a big fan of eating healthy, but I always laugh when the holidays come around because normally, thats the time when most people indulge in their favorite holiday treats (okay okay, I do too!) but I am extra encouraged to exercise more and to eat healthier. Why is this?! Does anyone else do that?

So I am starting off this month right with these Paleo Banana Pancakes. Don't you just want to sing "Banana Pancakes" by Jack Johnson while looking at these? There are 4 simple ingredients (if you exclude the love) so you can easily whip up these bad boys any time! These pancakes are incredibly fluffy and perfectly sweet. I was surprised with how fluffy they came out because I didn't use any oat flour or other type of flour. Woohoo! What is your favorite holiday treat??

INGREDIENTS:

1 ripe banana

2 egg whites

3 Tablespoons coconut flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

 

DIRECTIONS:

1. Blend together all of the ingredients and let sit for at LEAST 3 minutes. I like to use my Nutribullet but you can use a whisk or a regular blender. 

2. Heat a pan/griddle and melt a little butter on the pan. Then spoon a large amount onto your heated pan and cook until bubbles appear (about 4-5 minutes) Flip and cook for another 4-5 minutes on the other side. Make sure you cook them long enough!

3. Top with any topping of your choice (I used bananas and honey) and eat!!

 

NOTE** this serves 1 person. If you want to serve 2 or more, double the recipe!
