3-Ingredient Paleo Pancakes


2015/05/27 by nikkiledford

It’s incredible that this recipe has not been immortalized on my blog yet. I mean, you can just type “paleo pancake” into any search engine and you will likely come across this EXACT recipe. These are definitely not original nor a culinary feat. BUT… they are perfect. They work every time. Which is important when you can get lost in a pinterest board of 100 different paleo pancakes recipes. I’ve been making these for myself and guests for the past 5 years and they are loved each time.

The recipe is really simple which means you can customize depending on your pantry and your kitchen.

For example:

At my family’s mountain cabin (with no electricity) I make these by hand, mashing the bananas and mixing the ingredients with a fork.

At home I blend in my blender for a smooth, round pancake every time.

If I have crunchy almond butter, creamy almond butter, peanut butter, sunflower seed butter, or any other number of nut butters, I will use it. My favorite is smooth raw almond butter though. From a nutritional perspective, I feel like using raw nuts before cooking results in less oxidative damage to the nut oils. If you use roasted nut butter, you are reheating a substance that has already been heated… not the best thing for the delicate nut oils (and ultimately your cells).

Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
