Nutty Cocoa Nana Paleo Pancakes

What’s great about these pancakes is, they couldn’t be easier to make, they’re delicious, they travel well, and you can freeze them.


  • 2 Bananas (the riper, the sweeter)
  • 2 Whole Eggs
  • 2 Tbsp Nut Butter (chef’s choice) *Note: Almond Butter was used for this recipe.
  • 2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder


  1. Mash the bananas in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Once the bananas are thoroughly smooshed, add the eggs and nut butter, and mix thoroughly with a spoon.
  3. Add the cocoa powder; if you find that the mixture becomes a little too dry then consider adding a couple of extra eggs.  *Note: The consistency of these is similar to traditional pancakes so adding a scoop of your favorite protein powder would be a great option.
  4. Warm up your skillet on a medium heat and cook the pancakes.

And now, a look at the extras that played ever important roles in this paleo-ish pancake making production.
