Paleo Pancakes... Revisited

Sunday morning was the perfect day to wake up to the sound of rain on the roof, a cup of hot fresh brewed coffee, and the smell of nut butter pancakes on the grill! What a special way to spend a Sunday morning.

I actually make these nut butter pancakes a lot. It's a very forgiving recipe if the quantities aren't exact or if you want to change up the flavors a bit. I was in the mood for banana chocolate chip pancakes... paleo-style, of course! Hope you enjoy!

Recipe:
1/2 C nut butter (I used equal parts cashew butter and almond butter)
1 ripe banana
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 C raw organic cocao nibs
dash cinnamon

Combine all ingredients. Mix well. Heat a non-stick griddle pan to 400 degrees. If you don't have one, use a non-stick skillet over med-hi heat (coat with a little coconut oil). Pour the nut butter pancake mix on the grill to form round pancakes. Flip and serve!
You could top with a little fresh berries if desired. If your really lucky you can enjoy these while wearing some comfy pajamas, sipping a hot cup of coffee, listening to the sound of rain outside. Leftover pancakes make great snacks, too! :-)

Those look awesome! I usually use almond flour or coconut flour...I never thought of using nut butter and banana! Thanks for sharing!

I can't wait to try these! We can't use nuts because of an allergy, but I'm going to try them with Sunbutter. Thanks for posting this!

Thanks for the comments! Melli, I bet it'll be great with the sunbutter!

Those look yummy! I have a recipe for paleo cocoa nib cookies, and i can't find these nibs anywhere! I've been using dark chocolate chips. Do you have to order them? Or do you get them at a specialty store? Thanks!

I googled paleo chocolate chip pancakes and found your recipe. I just made them for breakfast and man are they good! Love love love them! I added walnuts and they were fabulous! Thanks so much for the recipe!
