Pumpkin Banana Pancakes

As we continue to live our paleo lifestyle, I've been working to perfect banana and coconut pancakes for my hubby. This morning it all came together and they were super tasty.

No surprise that the original recipe came from the very talented Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites. Her book Practical Paleo is a go-to recipe book for our family. I highly recommend the book for anyone who wants to learn more about the benefits of Paleo living.

Pumpkin Banana Pancakes

6 eggs
1 smashed over-ripe banana
1/2 cup canned pumpkin purée (I stocked up in November)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. maple syrup (up to 2 tbsp if you want them really sweet)
2 tbsp coconut flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp baking soda
4 tbsp finely shredded unsweetened coconut flakes
2 tbsp melted butter or coconut oil

Melt 2 tbsp butter or coconut oil
In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs, banana, pumpkin, vanilla, and maple syrup.
Sift dry ingredients (coconut flour, spices, and baking soda) into wet ingredients.
Stir in melted butter/coconut oil and coconut flakes

Grease your skillet with coconut oil on medium-heat and then ladle small amounts of batter onto the warm skillet. Once edges start to dry and the middle is bubbling, flip and cook for another minute.

We serve ours with a generous portion of butter on top.
