Ingredients in Paleo Banana Cassava Pancakes
To make these pancakes, you'll need 5 simple ingredients. Including:
The vanilla and cinnamon are optional, but recommended for additional flavor.
Cassava flour is a must! I have not tested any other flours for this particular recipe. However, I have a large collection of pancake recipes on the blog. Feel free to check them out 🙂
Also, I don't recommend flax, chia or gelatin "eggs" in place of real eggs. Real eggs are necessary for proper texture.
These cassava flour pancakes are a great, easy breakfast recipe because they literally take five minutes to prepare. The batter is made in one bowl, then cooked on a frying pan. You know, like any normal pancake 😉
So here's the step by step:
How to Make Banana Pancakes with Cassava Flour
First, peel the banana and mash in a large mixing bowl.
Next, mix in the eggs and vanilla. You may use a whisk or a fork to mix the ingredients.
Then, add the rest of the ingredients. This includes the cassava flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Mix well.
Preheat your frying pan by setting the heat to medium-low. Add a bit of oil to grease the surface. Next, pour ¼ cup of batter on the pan. Cover with a lid and cook until bubbles form on the top of the pancake. Then, remove the lid, flip and cook until done.
That's it! So easy, and you've got yourself a healthy, family favorite breakfast in no time.
Paleo Pancake Toppings

- coconut butter
- nut or seed butter
- maple syrup or honey
- fresh berries
- freeze dried fruit
- nuts or seeds
- cacao nibs
