Recipe – Chocolate Banana Protein pancakes

I woke up today and had this insane craving for pancakes. I got thinking about what I wanted in the pancake, and discovered a *very* ripe banana on the top of the fridge. So I thought some banana pancakes. The flaw? Besides being grain-free, I’m also egg-free..

Most Paleo recipes call for a ton of eggs and/or almond butter. So what to do? Look up vegan paleo recipes, of course! I found a great recipe on Eat the Cookie ( for vegan blueberry pancakes. I followed this fairly close, and the modifications I made are below. Enjoy! (And yes, there was bacon on the side.)


Chocolate banana protein pancakes

* 1/2 cup almond meal
* 1/4 cup (scant) flax meal
* 1/3 cup chocolate protein powder
* 1 ripe banana
* 1/2 tsp baking powder
* 1/4 tsp baking soda
* 1/8 tsp stevia powder or 1 tbsp maple syrup
* 1/4 tsp salt
* 4 Tbsp full fat coconut milk
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* Olive oil (for the pan)

To cook:

Dump all the ingredients in the food processor and spin until combined well.

Heat up a bit of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once the oil shimmers, your pan is ready.

Use a ladle or measuring cup to scoop out some batter. Pour it onto the skillet and allow to cook for a few minutes, flip when the bottom is set.

Feel free to top with whatever you like, however, we left them plain. These did pass the Mini Test. He loved them!
