We’ve been these eating flourless banana pancakes for years now, but since having a baby, these delicious, protein-packed puppies have become a weekly mainstay in our house. They take just a few minutes to make, so they’re just as perfect for busy mornings as they are for long weekend breakfasts. With just three ingredients, these pancakes are the epitome of clean, easy cooking. Plus, no added sugar or flour makes them paleo, gluten-free, etc. etc. etc. — pretty much great for any diet. And they’re a great alternative to the sugary, refined carbs of traditional pancakes.
Though I used to make a more complicated version (see my Flourless Blueberry Coconut Pancakes), now, we just opt for a pared down version. I make little silver-dollar sized pancakes for my toddler and regular sized pancakes for us.
The key to getting them to puff up is using a super hot pan — I use my trusty cast iron.
