Paleo Pancake Resources & Tips

If you want to customize or tweak your paleo pancake recipe to your own liking, here are a few more tips.

  1. Add more almond butter for more pancake-y type texturing (the more almond butter added, the more solid the pancake).
  2. Top with warm grass-fed butter to really bring out the flavor.
  3. Top with fruit (personally, we recommend some of the fruits on our paleo diet food list – our favorites include blueberries, blackberries and strawberries).
  4. Depending on where you fall on the sugar spectrum, you may want to add some all-natural maple syrup for a slight sweetened flavor.
  5. If you want to stay away from syrup, you can go with a  lighter sweetener and use some natural honey. It’s absolutely delicious – you’ll thank us later

That’s all there is to it! That’s how you make paleo pancakes.

Happy eating!

    I tried these pancakes because the picture looked so good. I was never able to get a pancake to cook enough that it could be turned. It stayed too moist and completely fell apart. Bummer! I tried a number of times and used enough butter, but still couldn’t get it to work. The top looked nice while it was cooking, though!

      Cook it a little slower if you can. Try varying up the ingredients in order to change the consistency of the pancakes. However, no matter how they look – they taste delicious!

    Hello. I have a question: Can I replace almond butter with regular grass-fed butter? Or can I replace it with peanut butter? I know peanuts are not paleo, but I thought maybe I could use it for this particular recipe. Thank you.

      Swapping out almond butter for butter is a bad idea for this recipe – you can do grass fed butter in a lot of things – but this would be a strange one to experiment with.

    Would love to try these tomorrow morn! Can you confirm the banana/egg ratio. The graphic says 3 bananas & 3 eggs but the text says 2:1. Thanks :)

    I just made these as a post workout protein hit to replace my usual smoothie as my husband is asleep and I didn’t want to use the blender. I tweeked it and it worked first go!

    1 banana, 1 egg and 22gm chocolate pea protein powder. I served mine with 1/2 cup frozen blueberries heated in a little saucepan with a dash of cinnamon. I made them small enough to yield 5 pikelets and they were easy to flip and held their shape perfectly. I’m a very happy little Vegemite .

    I always make them with the banana and egg, but have never added almond butter. I’m def going to try this. Especially cuz I LOVE almond butter. I eat paleo pancakes for dinner sometimes. To make them with a bit more consistency I use one whole egg and one egg white per banana. It seems to work out better.

  6. Jeanne Ruetz says

    I switched things around, used 1 banana and 2 eggs and 1 big Tablespoon Almond butter, cooked it in 1 T coconut oil topped with strawberries. These were the best pancakes I’ve ever made! It made 3 DELICIOUS pancakes.

  7. Odile Brock says

    This is the GAPS/SCD recipe for pancakes, by the way (published in the 1950’s).
    To cook successfully, make the pancakes no larger than your pancake turner, cook on medium low for about 7 minutes on the first side and 3 minutes on the other side. Takes a while so put two griddles on the stove.
