Pancakes and stuff

 Gluten free, Paleo Friendly Banana Pancakes
  Who does not like pancakes?   I for sure do...and a lot!

Gluten Free Paleo Friendly Banana Pancakes

I used a recipe I found on my blenched almond flour bag I purchases at Costco. The brand is Blue Diamond Almonds. It is a great almond flour to use for French Macarons, for chocolate chip cookies, pancakes, and so much more.

When I was making the recipe, I added a little more almond milk to my mixture because to me it looked to thick. It did not have the same runny consistency as a wheat pancake has.  This was a mistake on my part because I had a hard time flipping the darn thing over.  So I added the other egg yolk instead of tossing it away, and also added a little more almond flour to the mix to make it thicker. This was a game changer.   I did not follow the recipe to the T...but it still came out great!

This is what it looked like before starting to bake. Not runny.

The other thing I change was I added coconut butter instead of butter. Why you ask? I was too lazy to get it out of the freezer and melt it. So there, coconut butter worked great as well. 

After baking it for 3 minutes covered and ready to flip.
 Lastly, again I was not up to roasting any almonds, so I skipped that part as well.

Here is the basic recipe:

Gluten Free, Paleo Friendly Banana Pancakes

Makes 6 Servings
2½ cups Blue Diamond Extra Fine Natural Almond Flour
⅓ cup almond milk
¼ cup honey
2 tablespoons melted butter + additional for coating skillet
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs + 2 egg whites
1 medium very ripe banana, peeled
½ cup chopped Blue Diamond Honey Roasted Almonds  (I skipped the almonds)


  1. Blend all ingredients except nuts in a blender for 1 minute. Stir in nuts.
  2. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium-low heat.
  3. Brush with a little melted butter and pour batter into skillet, using about ¼ cup for each pancake. Cover and cook for 3 minutes.
  4. Turn carefully and reduce heat to low. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes more.
Recipe tip: Keep heat fairly low as almond flour tends to burn at a lower temperature.

Let me  know how yours turned out.  Have fun! :)
