Paleo Cinnamon Plantain Pancakes

Prep Time3 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time23 mins
Servings: 5 -6 pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1 large green plantain
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • Coconut oil, for frying

Instructions

  • Peel the plantain and cut into 4 pieces. The easiest way to do this is cut off either ends and score the peel lengthwise with a knife, and peel off the skin.
  • Place the plantain in a food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, except for coconut oil, into the food processor and blend until it turns into a creamy batter.
  • Heat coconut oil on a well-seasoned skillet over medium high heat.
  • Pour about 2-4 tbsps of the batter into the pan, depending on how big you want your pancake. The batter is thick so you may want to spread it a bit with a spatula.
  • Cook for about 3 minutes, then flip.
  • Cook the other side for about 2 minutes.
  • Add more coconut oil to the pan and repeat with the remaining batter.
  • Top the pancakes with whatever you want! I like a little bit of maple syrup with berries. Sprinkle with more cinnamon before serving!
