Since we eat paleo, I got used to make this pancakes on sunday morning. No flour here, there’s two base ingredients : bananas and eggs.
There’s a lot of banana-egg pancakes out there, I can’t even remember the first blog where I saw this recipe but I think the OG is Mark Sisson. He does his pancakes with 2 bananas for 1 egg and almond butter.
After several tries, I’ve been doing this version for a few sundays. I like this one because it’s simple and I always have these ingredients at hand. Don’t hesitate to make your own changes !
This recipe also works in it’s simplest state : 1:1 banana-egg, a pinch of salt and here we go !
Paleo sunday pancakes
Preparation time : 5min
Cooking time : 3-5min per pancake
Ingredients for about 6 little pancakes :
- 2 riped bananes (also works with fresh bananas)
- 2 eggs
- 1-2 tbps coconut flour
- 1-2 tbps maple syrup
- cinnamon per taste (I put quite a lot in it)
- a pinch of salt
- a pinch of sodium bicarbonate
- In a bowl, smash the bananas until you get the texture you want (I like to leave a few chunks of banana for a more homemade feel)
- Add the eggs, mix well together. Add the coconut flour and the maple syrup. Mix together.
- Finally, add the pinch of salt, the sodium bicarbonate and the cinnamon.
- Put coconut oil (or another good grease) in a heating pan.
- Pour a little bit of dough and decrease the heat. The pancakes have to cook slowly for a successful flip !
Pour some maple syrup on the pancakes when finished. You can also add some fruits, here I used some acidulate apples for flavor balance !
I always break a few while flipping them but it doesn’t take anything on their flavor 🙂
Bon appétit and happy sunday !
Saturday morning I woke up with a crave for a paleo croque-madame (it’s a croque-monsieur with a sunny side up egg on top). I used to make this recipe with white bread.
Seeking inspiration in a french blog, I found this recipe for paleo “toast” bread but I had to improvise as I didn’t have almond flour or a micro-wave ! Cassava flour and my good ol’ pan were there to save me.
Not really paleo : the gruyere but it’s a hard cheese and this is a comfort recipe so I had to add a little bit of this gift from gods called swiss gryuere.
Preparation time : 2min
Cooking time : ~5min for the bread, 3-5min for the sunny side up egg
Ingredients for 1 person :
For the bread :
- 2-3 tbsp cassava flour
- 1 egg
- a tsp olive oil (also works with coco oil or butter/ghee)
- a tsp sodium bicarbonate
- salt and pepper
For the croque-madame :
- First, in a bowl, mix together the flour, egg and olive oil. Add the sodium bicarbonate and salt/pepper.
- Put a little bit of olive oil in a heating pan.
- Pour half of the dough in the pan then spread it a little if needed.
- When holes start forming on the bread, flip it and let it cook until it takes a nice gold color.
- Finally, add your ingredients, let it cook evenly and it’s ready !
If you’re making a croque-monsieur/madame : prepare the ham and cheese while the bread is cooking.
Nobody likes to wash dishes so I waited until my two pieces of bread were done and put the ham and cheese inside. I put it aside and washed the pan to do my sunny side up egg.
When it’s done, put the sunny side up egg on the top of my croque-soon-to-be-madame and let it warm up evenly in the pan for a little bit.
Results : it was really good ! The bread isn’t comparable to white toasts but it tastes good and my craving for croque-madame was satisfied. I can’t wait to re-do this paleo bread recipe with spices and aromatic herbs, I’m already tasting the oregano/basil bread with tomates ! Hmmm.
Bon appétit !
