One of my favorite Sunday morning breakfasts are grain-free banana pancakes. You can find tons of simple, ingredient-light recipes for paleo pancakes with a recipe base of eggs and banana. I like to add fresh strawberries to the top of the pancakes, and then I had an idea of putting the strawberries in the batter with some unsweetened coconut flakes. In my opinion, adding in the additional berry brightens up the pancake, while the banana mellows it out, and the coconut flakes adds texture. I like to top my pancakes with coconut butter, maple syrup, fresh strawberries, and serve with a side of crisp, oven-baked bacon.
Grain-Free Strawberry Banana Pancakes
1 large banana, frozen or fresh
4 strawberries, roughly cut, plus any extra, sliced for topping
1 tablespoon unsweetened coconut flakes
In a blender, add in banana, strawberries, eggs, and coconut flakes, and lightly pulse. I like some texture in the chunks. Heat a griddle over medium heat. Once griddle is hot, add coconut oil. Spoon batter onto griddle and cook for about two to three minutes on each side. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy. Goes quite well with strong coffee, crisp bacon, and Advil.
