I need to tell you something wonderful.

These pancakes don’t have gluten in them. Β Seriously.

You can’t be upset when you live in a world where you can have a fluffy stack of pancakes for breakfast without needing wheat flour.

I’ll be the first to admit that I was skeptically optimistic about these but I’m happy to say that my skepticism was erased the moment I lifted the first one off the griddle.

And even more so when I bit into this stack. Β It was like biting into light, fluffy banana bread.

These are the real deal guys. Β Legit gluten-free, Paleo-friendly pancakes.

Gluten-Free Banana Bread Pancakes (from Tina’s OMG, Pancakes!)

Makes 6-8 pancakes


  • 3 bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat (spray with coconut oil if you’d like to ensure pancakes won’t stick)
  2. Lightly mash bananas in a bowl (or use Tina’s ‘mash-in-peel’ method)
  3. Combine mashed bananas and remainder of ingredients into a food processor and process until smooth.
  4. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop batter onto pre-heated pan, waiting just until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake, then flip.
  5. Serve with warm sunflower seed butter and a small handful of your favorite berries.

    • I don’t think there’s any difference. In fact, my Bob’s Red Mill bag says “Almond Flour/Meal” on it. And definitely pick some up – it’s so nice to have in the kitchen!

    • I thought – I thought that would be how these would turn out but they were so thick and fluffy! It’s a great recipe…wish I could take credit for it!

  1. You’re man must be very very happy:) I better not show my husband this blog, he’ll start expecting too much!

  2. Cait! I figured after making two batches of these in the past 24 hours, I had to tell you how they turned out! For starters, I didn’t have almond meal, so I just ground up 1/4c of almonds in the food processor and I ended up using a flax egg in replace of one of the eggs. THEY WERE DELICIOUS. This recipe is great not only because it’s paleo friendly and gluten free but so good! Please keep posting these types of recipes!

  3. Am I the only one who seems to be having an issue with getting this recipe to come out right? I also ground up some almonds into flour and then followed the directions as they were but I can’t seem to get my pancakes to form right. πŸ™ Any suggestions?

    • Hmm, sorry you’re seeming to have trouble with it! I’m not sure what could be going wrong…are you using a food processor to mix all the ingredients?
