Grain Free (Paleo) Banana Pancakes – Thermomix Recipe Conversion

I have been asked by a friend to provide a bit of background on the Paleo (Paleolithic) diet, which I will do in a couple of days. In the meantime here is a Thermomix conversion of one of my favourite breakfasts, Banana Pancakes from the Against All Grain – which I am making as write this!

My kids love these too….I need to try and sneakily make them otherwise they are all gone before I realise it!

The non-Thermomix recipe can be found by clicking here.

Ingredients (makes 8-10 small pancakes)

  • 3 medium eggs, at room temperature
  • 50 grams non dairy milk (I used coconut milk but you could use almond milk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 5 grams honey
  • 10 grams of coconut flour ( I use either Bob’s Red Mill Organic Coconut Flour or Health Reflections Certified Organic Coconut Flour)
  • 40 grams of almond flour (I milled my own almonds in the Thermomix)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 really ripe banana (brown spots are the best!)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (if you like)
  • Butter or coconut oil for the pan

Method

  • Place all the wet ingredients and the banana, broken into pieces, into the Thermomix bowl – mix on Speed 5 for 10 secs.

  • Add the dry ingredients to to the bowl and mix for a further 10 secs on Speed 5.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl and let the mixture sit for 5 minutes so the flours can soak up the moisture from the wet ingredients.

Cook as per instructions below from Against All Grain

  • Heat a cast iron (or non-stick) pan over medium-high heat. You can also use a griddle to make more pancakes at once. Mix the batter again, then begin making your pancakes.
  • Oil the pan with coconut oil or butter, then pour about a 1/4 cup of batter per pancake. The pancakes are easier to flip if you keep them small, about 4 inches in diameter.

  • Once the pancake begins to bubble, place a couple of slices of banana and a pinch of chocolate chips on top.
  • Carefully flip the pancake over, and cook for another minute until the pancake has fluffed up an feels slightly firm.
  • Keep hot in a warm oven until you are done making the remainder of the pancakes.
  • These are best eaten immediately, but if you have leftovers you can warm them in a toaster the next day.

Enjoy,
Linda
