Hello Healthy Pancakes!


“I’m going to have pancakes with a side of pancakes.” -Lorelai Gilmore (from Gilmore Girls)

Who doesn’t like pancakes? They’re like the ultimate comfort food. If you are a ‘breakfast lover’ like me, then you could literally eat them for breakfast AND dinner. I mean, I’m no fan of sugary, gluten-y, calorie bombs… but what if I told you that they didn’t have to be that way? That you could literally have your (pan)cake and eat it too? Well, my friends, you can! Cue these pancakes! They’re totally delicious, satisfying, naturally sweet and good for ya, too! They’re 100% gluten, dairy and soy free. They’re Paleo and I’ve included the vegan option as well (which I’ve made before and it’s equally as delicious)!

Hello Healthy Pancakes!
Serves 1
These pancakes may be gluten, dairy, soy and refined sugar free... but that doesn't mean they're not super delicious! A truly balanced way to start the day!

    This is exactly how I make my healthy pancakes too. I know some people make them with just egg and banana, but I think the flour holds it together a bit better.

    Yes to the Gilmore Girls reference! I actually just had pancakes for dinner last night. I like to make mine with greek yogurt or cottage cheese too for added protein.

      Oh yum!! Sadly, my tummy doesn’t respond too well to dairy… but if it did I totally would!! Sounds like an amazing way to get extra protein! YUM!

    Did someone say pancakes!! OMG I’m so making these – I have all the ingredients and have been craving pancakes lately – my morning routine this past weekend was crazy and I skipped my Saturday ritual of pancakes. Breakfast for dinner is the best though!

    Well, these look delish! I’m definitely going to make the vegan version of these. Don’t you just love how easy pancakes are to make healthy? I don’t see why anyone ever thought of fooling with all the traditional ingredientsβ€”too much work to be so unhealthy;) These look yummy, thanks for sharing!

    Interesting. I’ve never tried the addition of coconut flour to the eggs/banana pancakes before. And I do have quite a bit of coconut flour at my apartment that needs to be used up. Now I’m craving pancakes!
