These paleo pancakes made from egg and banana will blow your mind. 

With no added sugars or grains, these pancakes will be your new go to. For a fall twist, I topped them with pomegranate and pistachio, but you can use whatever toppings you have on hand. They are already moist and sweet from the banana, so maple syrup is optional. 


Pomegranate & Pistachio Paleo Pancakes
Serves 1
Write a review
  1. 1 ripe banana
  2. 1/4 tsp. almond or vanilla extract (optional)
  3. 1/8 tsp. baking powder (optional, for fluffier pancakes)
  4. 2 large eggs
  5. 1 Tbsp. unrefined coconut oil (or other oil)
  6. ½ cup pomegranate arils
  7. 2 Tbsp. chopped pistachios
  1. Peel the banana and break it into 4 parts in a bowl. Use a fork to mash it thoroughly into a pudding like consistency. Add the extract and baking powder if using.
  2. In another bowl, whisk the eggs together. Then, pour the eggs into the banana bowl, and mix well until thoroughly combined. It will be a very liquid-like consistency.
  3. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add a few teaspoons of coconut oil. Use about 2 tablespoons of batter per pancake. Cook for about 1 minute. Sprinkle with a few pomegranate seeds before flipping and cooking an additional minute on the other side.
  4. Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate, and stack them high. Top with additional pomegranate, pistachios, and maple syrup.
