What to Serve with Paleo-Friendly Pancakes

I love serving these pancakes with some fresh berries and a little bit of honey. It’s the simplest and the most delicious combo that you can do.

You can go one step further by drizzling some paleo-friendly coconut custard over the pancakes. The custard goes perfect with some fruit and is well worth trying out.

Paleo Banana Pancakes

Sliced banana, crispy bacon, and a drizzle of maple syrup is an excellent combination to have with these pancakes. It will require a little bit more work since you will need to cook the bacon, but it’s worth it.

Tweaking the Recipe

One of the best things about this recipe is that you only need four very simple ingredients to make the pancake batter. You can even leave the cinnamon out of the mixture so that you only need three ingredients. The banana, egg, and coconut flour.

If you’re not a fan of coconut flour, you can try replacing it with some almond flour. The result should be roughly the same, but it will have a bit more of a nutty flavor.

For even more flavor, you can add some additional spices into the pancake mixture. For example, nutmeg is an excellent addition and will work nicely with the cinnamon. Personally, I think the recipe is perfect without any changes.

Recipe Tips

  • If you find the pancakes are burning too fast, then turn down the heat on the pan. They should be golden brown, and if they are any darker, then you probably have the heat up too high.
  • This paleo pancakes mix is best made fresh and not ahead of time. It is because the bananas in the mix are likely to brown and make your pancake mixture look horrible.
  • If you don’t like cinnamon, then feel free to remove it from the recipe. You can also add other spices such as nutmeg, mixed spice, and others to spice the mix up a little.
  • You can cheat and add some chocolate chips into the pancake batter for a bit of extra flavor. Dark chocolate is best if you want to keep it as Paleo-friendly as possible.
