Pikelets – Pancakes – Paleo2 min read

Reading Time: 2 minutes

My girls love pikelets or pancakes!!!

They also love good, healthy paleo foods so these are one of those things I decide to do as a weekend breakfast for the them.

Recently I noticed a recipe that has gone around Facebook for “Paleo Pancakes”. It’s really pretty simple – two eggs and one banana. I tried them but I wasn’t completely happy with the batches I made. They tended to be pretty thin and hard to flip so I usually ended up with banana flavoured scrambled eggs. Definitely not nice.

I wanted a nice, thick `normal’ pikelet, so I set about tweaking the recipe to get that result. This is what I have come up with.

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoon of coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder (optional)


Method for Thermomix:

  1. Blitz banana on speed 9 for 5-10 seconds. It should be nice and smooth.
  2. Add the eggs, cinnamon, coconut flour and baking powder.
  3. Blitz again on speed 9 for 5-10 seconds.
  4. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and blitz again if necessary.
  5. Heat the pan – add some coconut oil and spoon level tablespoons of the mixture into a hot pan.
  6. Cook for half a minute or until bubbles appear on the surface.
  7. Turn over and cook for a minute or until golden.
  8. Serve warm. (If you do dairy, add a dollop of butter on top.)

Notes:

  • There is not really any need for any sweetener as the banana is sweet enough.
  • I find that putting the ingredients into a Thermomix (or food processor) makes a nice and even mixture. There are no lumps that way and the banana is mixed through beautifully.

So there you have one `little girl approved’ paleo pikelet recipe that is super easy. Gluten free, nut free, dairy free, no added sugar!! Enjoy.

  1. Hi Sharon, do you know of another fruit/ingredient that works with this besides banana? My daughter is allergic to them. They do do look Yum! Thanks Beke

    1. Hi Beke,
      I’m not sure what other fruit would work but I can certainly have a go at finding something for you. Is there any other fruit she is allergic to?

  2. Thanks for picking up on this Kirsty. It’s a teaspoon.
    Im not sure if you are in Australia or not? We have what we call Bi-carb Soda (Baking soda in the USA) and Baking powder (not sure of its name in the USA). Bi-carb has the tangy taste to it and Baking powder doesn’t.
    This is the brand of coconut flour we use: https://www.niulife.com/shop/coconut-flour-1kg-pouch
