I’d be surprised to find someone who doesn’t like bananas or pancakes… I love them both, and personally, I get even more of a thrill when I combine the two (or top one with the other). Luckily, there are tons of ways to make awesome Paleo-style banana pancakes.
Whether it’s a more elaborate recipe for a lazy Sunday morning or a quick one for a busy workday, you can get your Paleo banana pancake fix in no time with one of these awesome recipes. Here’s our list of favorite Paleo banana pancake recipes!
Top 10 Paleo Banana Pancake Recipes
These simple yet hearty pancakes are made with a base of bananas, eggs and almond flour. If you can’t get your hands on pumpkin spice, a substitute spice blend of cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg makes for a quick replacement. These pancakes are a great weekend treat but also don’t take so much time that they couldn’t be enjoyed on a weekday either! Butter is recommended for frying, but you could also use coconut oil which would also add a delicious coconut-y flavor to these Paleo banana pancakes. (Photo credit: Hannah from Healy Eats Real.)
Kelly Bejelly’s Paleo banana pancakes take it up a notch with help from cocoa powder and tasty sunbutter. Hers have a base of coconut flour and a dash of vanilla for subtle flavors that aren’t overly sweet. The quantities here serve five so this is great for a Saturday morning family breakfast or a group of friends after a weekend sleepover! (Photo credit: Kelly Bejelly of A Girl Worth Saving.)
These incredibly easy banana pancakes from Cat’s blog Things My Belly Likes are perfect for any day of the week! All you need is a banana, two eggs, some cinnamon, and optional maple syrup to coat. The banana provides enough sweetness, and blended with the eggs, that’s all it takes for an awesome Paleo pancake! Cat serves hers with a side of bacon for a great savory-sweet contrast that will leave you super satisfied! (Photo credit: Cat from Things My Belly Likes.)
These flourless pancakes don’t even use flours like almond and coconut flour; just bananas, eggs, almond butter and some flavorings like cinnamon and vanilla to whip up this easy and quick pancake recipe.

For coconut fans, this nut-free recipe is low on ingredients and quite simple, despite the lengthy instructions.

The cacao nibs make this straightforward banana pancake recipe really stand out! Not only are they healthy, but they balance perfectly with the natural sweetness of the bananas and make this otherwise too-easy recipe that much more special. (Photo credit: Charlotte from Paleo Polly.)
Berries are a favorite Paleo fruit for their high content of antioxidants and vitamins. These Paleo banana pancakes go great topped with our favorite fruit (either fresh or frozen are fine), not to mention that the batter recipe is insanely delicious as well! It uses coconut flour, coconut or almond milk, and a spoonful of lemon, to create a sweet, soft and tangy flavor blend that makes a great combination for a delicious pancake stack.

One of my most useful skills from culinary school is how to make flavored butters. It couldn’t be easier; you just mix softened butter with whatever flavor you want. The butter makes for an amazing spread or addition to such a variety of dishes. For these incredible pancakes, Ellen instructs on making a butter spread from Meyer lemons, which are an especially sweet and subtle variety.

Blueberry pancakes are my favorite kind of pancake and these Paleo banana pancakes have tasty blueberries baked right into the batter! Not to mention, this is one of the shortest and fastest pancake recipes on the list. The folks at Paleoaholic keep it simple and healthy with only egg whites, banana, blueberries, almond butter and a dash of cinnamon. Follow these basic instructions and pick your favorite topping such as maple syrup – you’ll have fast and perfect blueberry pancakes, ready in no time! (Photo permission from Ella at Paleoaholic.)
If you want to go all out, these Paleo banana pancakes will require a bit more time and elaboration, but the payoff is more than worth it! These use healthy almond butter, coconut milk, almond flour and coconut flour to make rich and flavorful pancakes perfect for a leisurely weekend or day spent playing hookie from work. If you can get your hands on a cute cookie cutter like Heather’s heart-shaped one, you can make your fruit toppings stand out with special shapes that the kids will love!
