Banana Caramel Pancakes

My nickname for these pancakes is “Faileo Pancakes”. Why? Because I started off with a paleo pancake recipe and then covered it in caramel. Just because. And it’s DELICIOUS. Plus it’s super easy and gluten free! Forget the usual flour, milk and sugar – the base recipe uses just 3 ingredients – bananas, eggs and baking powder.

And why am I making pancakes? Because it’s Shrove Tuesday (aka Pancake Day) of course! Pancakes are associated with the day preceding Lent because they were a way to use up rich foods such as eggs, milk, and sugar, before the fasting season of the 40 days of Lent.

I had such a great response to my single serve Lonely Girl Pancakes that I created another single serve pancake recipe. You’ll be making this, a LOT.

Serves: 1

Ingredients
  • 2 medium bananas, ripe to overripe
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅛ tsp baking powder
  • Butter, to fry
  • 3 tbsp caramel sauce (I used Bonne Maman caramel spread)
  • 1 tbsp shredded coconut (optional)

Instructions
  1. Mash 1½ bananas in a bowl, then crack 2 eggs in and whisk until combined. It doesn’t have to be super smooth, I like the batter quite chunky.
  2. Add ⅛ teaspoon of baking powder and coconut (if using) to the mashed bananas and egg mix and stir to combine.
  3. Pour approx 1 tablespoon of batter per pancake into the frypan and cook over medium low heat.
  4. Flip after bubbles appear across the surface, cook for about one minute more until golden on both sides.
  5. Heat a little more butter in the frying pan and fry the slices of banana with a spoonful of caramel spread until golden.
  6. To assemble, stack pancakes and smooth a teaspoon of caramel between every second pancake.
  7. Top with pan fried bananas and a little more caramel.

If you want to make these pancakes truly paleo, skip the caramel and throw in a handful of berries before you cook them. Very delicious and healthy too.

      It’s great to have another recipe idea up your sleeve when the bananas are getting too ripe isn’t it! :)

    The social club at work put on pancakes for breakfast this morning. They made them with maple syrup instead of sugar and they were awesome!!!!
