Paleo Pancakes and Fresh Strawberries

So, I was hosting a little sleepover for a group of 7 and 8 year olds. 
I decided it would be easiest to make pancakes for them with strawberries and whipped cream.
I used a Bisquick mix for them.  The pancakes looked and smelled so good.
My husband came downstairs and I could tell that he was thinking the same thing.
Before he could think another wicked thought about eating a pancake - made with Bisquick - 
I told him I had a plan for us!
I've seen several recipes for this, but decided to do a blend of a few of them 
so that I could use what I had on hand. 
Here are the ingredients:
3 eggs
1 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 mashed banana
1 cup of coconut flour
1/2 cup of almond flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
coconut oil for cooking
 Put your wet ingredients in your bowl first.
 Mix well.
 Add dry ingredients.
 Mix well.
 Oil your skillet with Coconut Oil or real butter.
Oops. These got dark sooner than I thought they would.
Did I mention I've got a house full of 8 year olds? hehe
 All done.
These are very dense and I was full before I finished a second pancake and they were not that big.
Tastes a lot like banana nut bread.
I am trying to use almond flour and almond products sparingly.  I think you could go all coconut flour with this and be okay, but I was running short on my coconut flour.
Enjoy with a side of berries or even some good quality yogurt or pure maple syrup might be good.

What do you think? Have you tried anything like this? Any suggestions?


  1. They look good, except I avoid pancakes and waffles totally because I want PANCAKE SYRUP!! Not even pure maple syrup, but Mrs Butterworth or whatever! Were they dry?

    1. I totally get what you mean! I do not like a dry pancake or waffle! However, these were not dry - I think mostly because of the banana. Next time, I am going to give the ones Esther mentioned a try.

  2. I have a recipe that made wonderful fluffy paleo pancakes. It was with all coconut flour though . I'll find it and post the link to your wall.


Your thoughts, or even just to know you stopped by, would be so encouraging. Would you kindly leave a little note so that I know you were here?
Thank you my friend! xo
