Three Ingredient Paleo Pancakes – Dairy Free, Grain Free, Sugar Free


These pancakes are SO easy, and we absolutely love them.  I make them in quadruple and quintuplet (pretty sure I just made up a word there) batches!  Because my kids eat so many of these, we usually relax and make them on weekends.  The even better news about these is that they do freeze and refrigerate well.  So you can make a large batch on the weekend and put some in a tupperware or ziplock for another day that week.  Easy peasy.  And I do have to say that although you can do these with three ingredients, there IS a fourth ingredient that kicks up the flavor a ton!  Lemon Vitality Essential Oil from Young Living added to these pancakes takes them from really good to great!  If you want to know more about why we use these oils, go ahead and click HERE!  Here’s the recipe!

And here’s the link for the cast iron skillet that we use and LOVE!!!

  1. 1 ripe banana with brown spots
  2. 1 egg
  3. 1/2 cup almond flour
  4. Young Living Lemon Vitality Essential Oil - optional
  5. Coconut oil if needed for non-stick
  1. Preheat cast iron skillet or griddle on medium low heat
  2. Mash the banana in a bowl with a fork until there are no large chunks
  3. Crack egg in the bowl and mix together
  4. Slowly stir in the almond flour making sure to break up any clumps
  5. Add 5 drops YL Lemon Vitality Oil if including
  6. If using cast iron, apply a small coating of coconut oil to the griddle
  7. Place 1/4 cup of the batter on the skillet for each pancake
  8. These will take longer to cook than most pancakes because of the density, so make sure that you see a slight browning around the edges before flipping
  9. It takes approximately 3-5 minutes for the first side and 1-2 minutes on the second side, but it will vary depending on your temperature
  10. Almond flour does settle a little, so make sure to stir every couple of batches if you're doing more than one batch
  11. Top with organic grade B maple syrup or coconut oil and enjoy!
  1. **These freeze and refrigerate very well. Just put them in the toaster or warm them on the stove!
  2. **Be sure to adjust the stove temperature as needed, especially if using cast iron. It will need less heat as you continue to cook!

    We make pancakes similar to these with just egg and banana. They are great too. I’ll have to try the almond flour. My son is not a fan of the banana flavor, maybe it will cut it a big. Stopping over from EBA. Looks awesome!!

      Thanks so much for the love, Kelly! We often times put Lemon Vitality essential oils in it to give it a fun, lemon tang! If you don’t have the vitality oils, you could definitely try some lemon rind or some lemon juice to take a little away from the banana flavor 🙂
