Simple Plantain Paleo Pancakes

I’m loving these simple plantain paleo pancakes lately. Seriously. so. simple. So if you’re new to plantains, don’t fret. I tweaked a couple recipes to fit what I had on hand and then turned out great.

Plantain Paleo Pancakes

  • 1 very ripe plantain (nearly all black), peeled (you may need to cut the peel of vs. just pulling it off)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil + extra for greasing pan
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • splash of vanilla extract

Combine it all in a blender until very smooth (my batter was pretty runny).

Melt extra coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Pour the pancake batter into the pan to desired size of pancake. I did 3-4” pancakes and ended up with 6 pancakes, perfect for a satisfying stack. (Having a stack of pancakes looks so much more appetizing than 1-2” massive pancakes, right??)

Cook for 3-5 minutes until the pancakes start to form bubbles and then carefully flip. Cook 1-2 minutes until cooked through.

I served with an extra sprinkle of salt on top. And if I had berries, I’d put those on top too. 🙂

Plantain Paleo Pancakes

They’re quick enough for a weekday breakfast or nice as a weekend treat too.

Let me know if you try them out!

    Hmmmm I’ve never made paleo pancakes with plaintains. They look awesome though! I always use this recipe: http://civilizedcavemancooking.com/recipes/breakfast/perfect-paleo-pancakes/ but I always ruin a few when I’m trying to flip them. They still taste good “scrambled” though 🙂

    These sound awesome! I’m going to put plantains on our grocery list! We just had plantains at a Latin chicken place over the Memorial Day weekend, and they were so good. We were saying that we should buy them more often, but they’re a little intimidating for us. These look so easy though!

      Plantains intimidated me at first too! Once you start using them, you’ll find out how versatile and easy they are! I also love slicing them and sauteing them in a little coconut oil. So good!

    I was just looking up plantain recipes and found yours. It just struck me funny that you live in Winston Salem! I’m in Sparta er rather Ennice ?. I’m experimenting with all kinds of food and I LOVE plantain chips ?. My daughter actually lives in WS too.
