Paleo Gluten Free Chocolate Banana Pancakes

Paleo Banana Pancakes is one of my favorite posts here. The recipe has all the goodness of a sweet and indulgent breakfast packed in into just half a banana and one egg per serving. And 9 grams of protein per serving.

PLUS, the pancakes are gluten free and paleo…and could be almost vegan if you dare replace the single lonely egg for Egg Replacer (on my bucket list).

Chocolate Paleo Banana PancakesThis little chocolaty variation is the new and improved way to make them. I just got a purple immersion blender and is my new best friend. Batter to batter, you can’t even tell if this one is gluten free or paleo or “normal.”

For 1 serving. This was inspired by the Paleo Banana Pancakesrecipe.

  • 1/2 ripe banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1.5 tsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp coconut palm sugar, or stevia
  • 1 tsp coconut flour
  • 5 vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 pinch of Kosher salt


With everything in one single container (minus the salt), use an immersion blender until frothy. If you don’t have an immersion blender, grab a fork, mash the banana, and then beat the rest of the ingredients (skip the chocolate chips).

In a medium pan at medium to low heat, cook SMALL silver dollar pancakes (small is key as these are a little bit tougher to flip versus other ones). Watch them like a hawk – they can burn in extra 3 seconds. Start with the heat at low and build from there. Around 2 minutes for the first side and 20 seconds for the other side.

Paleo Banana Pancakes

This recipe was inspired by genius blogger Nom Nom Paleo.
I love this way to make pancakes because it doesn’t require any of the crazy starches or flours, and you can literally make it for yourself with one big cup and your favorite fork.

The consistency of the final pancake is not exactly the same as the one we are typically used to, but it feels SO GOOD to know you are being extra nice to your body. And everything tastes great with maple syrup and a cup of hot coffee.

Each serving only has 130 calories! And you can keep it on the low end by using fresh fruit and kill the syrup and the chocolate chips (sad, but true).

For one serving.
1/2 ripe banana
1 egg at room temperature
Vanilla extract

Optional: 100% maple syrup, fresh fruit, chocolate chips. Try: fresh blueberries.

Blend all ingredients well. Cook on a hot small pan with coconut oil or butter. Serve. Eat warm!
