Ingredients required for making delicious paleo pancakes

These paleo pancakes will absolutely be ready in 30 minutes or less. They don’t require many ingredients and certainly don’t require any special cooking skills.

Interested are you to know more?!

You’ll need a quality skillet (or a pan that you can rely on), a few eggs, bananas, a chunk of real butter and classic spices like vanilla and cinnamon. That’s it and nothing more! I’ve told you they’re pretty easy to make.

These are all the ingredients you’ll be using for this paleo pancakes feast:

  • Eggs
  • Bananas
  • Vanilla
  • Cinnamon
  • Butter
  • Dark Chocolate (85%, for topping)
  • Cashew Butter (for topping)

For an extra special flavor, I topped these pancakes with creamy cashew butter and freshly made chocolate sauce (we’ll make the chocolate sauce ourselves).

Regarding cashew butter, you can definitely skip it in case you don’t have any in your house (or maybe you don’t like it). Just know that other kinds of nut butters will work just as good (almond butter and hazelnut butter are my other favorites).

Notes

There’s no need for any kind of sweetener since banana already comes with a lot of sweetness by default.
Feel free to play around with the toppings, you can get very creative with melted chocolate, fresh berries or different kinds of nut butter.
Here’s how to melt the chocolate in a double boiler
  • The simplest way is to use a heat-proof bowl placed over a small pot filled with 2/3 water. Add the chocolate inside the main bowl.
  • Heat the double boiler over low to medium heat otherwise you risk boiling the chocolate which is something you want to avoid.
  • Make sure you don’t add too much water into the pot, otherwise you risk getting water into the mixing bowl.
  • The chocolate will melt from the indirect heat generated by the water found in the main pot.
  • Once the chocolate has melted, simply remove the bowl from heat and set aside to cool down.
