AIP Banana Pancakes (paleo, vegan)

  • Author: Nicole @healmedelicious
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 8-10 small pancakes 1x


These vegan, paleo and AIP Banana Pancakes are super fluffy and delicious and come together quickly in the blender.




Carob Sauce (Optional)

  • 2 TBSP coconut oil, melted
  • 2 TBSP carob powder
  • 2 TBSP maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • splash pure vanilla extract  


For Pancakes

  1. Combine pancake ingredients in the order listed into a blender and mix for a few seconds until just combined. Batter will be thick and this is key to the fluffy texture. 
  2. Heat a large non stick skillet over low-medium heat and coat well with coconut oil. 
  3. Spoon medium-sized spoonfuls of the batter into skillet to form small pancakes no larger than 2.5-inches in diameter. Cook each pancake until bubbling and beginning to set on the top (~ 3 minutes)  flip and repeat.* 
  4. Optional: Top with sliced banana and carob sauce.

For Carob Sauce

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan.
  2. Simmer on medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring continuously. 
  3. Pour into a jar, cool at room temperature and store in the refrigerator. Sauce will become solid in the refrigerator, so reheat as necessary for serving.


* Once again, it is important to keep these pancakes small and to let them begin to set in the middle before flipping, otherwise they will be a floppy mess and have a gummy texture. Keep the heat on low and be patient with them.  I would also recommend brushing the skillet with coconut oil between each pancake.
