Silver Dollar Banana Pancakes
Excerpted from Paleo Super Snacks by Landria Voigt
These scrumptious little snacks are great for the road because you can eat them alone or with some nut/seed butter. They also freeze well, so they are great for packing on a long trip. Just be sure to take them out of the freezer about three hours before you’ll want to eat them. Because they are small, they won’t take long to thaw. Just in time for snack time!
2 ripe bananas
3 tablespoons (21 g) coconut flour
1 tablespoon (8 g) arrowroot powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon (20 g) maple syrup
1 tablespoon (12 g) coconut palm sugar
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
1 tablespoon (14 g) grass-fed butter or coconut oil
In a food processor, combine the bananas, eggs, coconut flour, arrowroot powder, vanilla, baking soda, maple syrup, coconut palm sugar, cinnamon, and salt and blend until smooth.
In a large skillet over medium heat (not any higher because they can scorch easily), melt the butter to coat the skillet. Pour silver dollar–size pancakes. Cook for about 4 minutes, until you see bubbles, and then carefully flip and cook for a couple more minutes, until done.
Yield: 15 to 18 pancakes
