Perfect Plantain Pancakes

with No Comments

This recipe has become a staple in our home. We have mastered the art of making one of the healthiest pancakes you will ever eat! Thanks to The Paleo Mom I can enjoy my Sunday morning breakfast with some delicious pancakes.

I have adjusted her recipe a little to include some extra baking soda to help the pancakes rise and some cinnamon for some added flavour! The best thing about these pancakes is the fact that they cook pretty eat in comparison to other non-wheat pancakes with coconut flour, almond flour or bananas. If you are trying to go gluten free or dairy free this recipe is a must have for breakfast! It will not disappoint…. trust me!
