Fluffy paleo pancakes made with Bob's Red Mill Paleo Pancake & Waffle Mix and topped with sweet caramelized bananas. Paleo never tasted so good!
Slice the banana into rounds, place in a bowl, and gently stir to coat with the maple syrup and 1 teaspoon of melted coconut oil. Set aside.
Preheat a griddle or nonstick pan to medium heat.
Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Place the egg yolks in a large mixing bowl and set aside. Beat the egg whites in a small mixing bowl until foamy but not stiff.
In the large mixing bowl, add the water, melted coconut oil, and vanilla (if used) to the egg yolks. Whisk together. Add the paleo pancake mix and whisk until combined. Gently fold in the egg white foam until fully incorporated.
Pour 1/4 cup of batter at a time into the preheated griddle or pan. Cook about 3 minutes, then flip and cook until golden brown. Remove to a plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat until batter is gone.
Place the banana rounds in the hot pan. Cook on one side until lightly browned, about 1 minute, then flip and cook the other side. Top the pancakes and serve immediately.
You can use the batter to make waffles. Make the batter according to the instructions, then follow your waffle maker's instructions for batter quantity per waffle and cooking time.
You can even caramelize bananas in your waffle maker, if you like, once the waffles are done. It can leave a sticky residue, so be prepared for a little extra cleanup.
