These are the easiest, fluffiest Paleo pancakes. And, I don't like to play favorites because I do love all of the recipes on this site, but these pancakes just might be my number one.
This easy Paleo banana pancake recipe is:
- Paleo (gluten free, grain free, dairy free)
- nut free
- only sweetened with bananas

Ingredients in Paleo Banana Cassava Pancakes
To make these pancakes, you'll need 5 simple ingredients. Including:
- ripe banana
- vanilla extract (optional)
- cassava flour
- cinnamon (optional)
- baking soda
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
These pancakes were topped with honey, bananas, raspberries, cinnamon and bee pollen. Some of my other favorite Paleo approved pancake toppings include:
- coconut cream
- coconut butter
- nut or seed butter
- maple syrup or honey
- fresh berries
- freeze dried fruit
- nuts or seeds
- cacao nibs

Looks good! Gonna try these for sure ????
Thank you 🙂 Hope you like them as much as we do!
My favorite paleo pancakes!
Just whipped up a batch. They modify easily, stack beautifully and taste delicious. I was so surprised at how moist and fluffy they were. I used 1 small banana, 1/4 cup flour, 2 eggs, 1/4 baking soda 1/8 baking powder, ginger and cinnamon to taste. This recipe delightful.
Thank you! I'm so glad you liked them 🙂
I had a hard time making them as waffles. They weren't fluffy. However, it works beautifully in the waffle iron!
*I hade a hard time making them as pancakes.
Sorry the pancakes didn't work out - but glad the waffles did 🙂 Thank you for sharing!
Excellent. I love it.
So happy to hear that! Thank you for the review 🙂
Hi! Can I use an egg substitute for this recipe? Like a gleatin egg?
I haven't tried this recipe without eggs. My guess is the pancakes would turn out gummy if using an egg replacer. But let me know how they turn out if you try!
I used 3 instead of 1 very ripe bananas, and all the other ingredients in the recipe. They came great. Only thing I may have done differently would be maybe a little more cassava to maybe balance the extra bananas.
Thank you for this recipe!1
Thank you for the review 🙂
Do you skipped eggs all together ? We are egg free in my house!
Hi! Unfortunately this recipe won't work well without eggs. Using an egg substitute will result in gummy pancakes.
