It really is incredible how easy these banana pancakes are to make. You just need three simple ingredients: banana, eggs, and cinnamon. Your batter should be pretty thick, so if the banana you are using is on the small side, you may need to add another half of a banana. Also, if you want your pancakes a little fluffier, try adding a 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder. These pancakes are gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo but they taste just like the real thing!

Yield: Makes about 5 small pancakes


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. In a bowl, combine the banana, eggs and cinnamon.

  3. Grease your frying pan with a little bit of oil or butter.
  4. Heat your stove to a low to medium setting.
  5. Pour two tablespoons of the batter in your pan and cook for about 1½ minutes on both sides or until done.
