What is so special about these particular pancakes do you ask? Well for one they are made with plantains (you curious yet?) and they are also egg free and compatible with the paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP). I have to say I was pretty impressed with how these turned out. I made a large batch so I have been eating them as snacks all week. Yum. I like to top mine with bacon fat (trust me it’s delicious), nut butter or my chia seed jam. But other options would include coconut butter, maple syrup, apple butter, fresh fruit or honey. The possibilities are endless!
I am probably one of the last paleo bloggers to jump on the pancake bandwagon. Oops! There are so many great recipes out there already but most of them contain eggs so I just never got around to trying them out. But since I have discovered the miracle of the gelatin egg I have been incorporating this superfood into so many recipes that would normally require eggs and I wouldn’t be able to eat. My Harvest Bread with Apple Coconut Icing or Egg Free Cauliflower Pizza Crust are prime examples. And if you are not familiar with the miracle that is the gelatin egg, simply head down to the directions to learn how to make this life changing ingredient.
Happy Eating Everyone!
Paleo Plantain Pancakes
You are going to love these paleo plantain pancakes. Easy to make they are a healthy breakfast or snack option that can be served in so many ways.
Place the peeled, chopped plantains and coconut milk in your food processor or high powered blender and blend until smooth.
