Paleo Gingerbread Banana Pancakes

Finally adding one of my favorite recipes to my website! The easiest paleo pancake recipe in the world. I know this is a pretty common recipe so I’m not taking credit for it and I don’t know who originally created it. I’ve been making this recipe since I started living on my own in college. It’s easy, cheap, and filling! Added a little festive twist this morning making these paleo gingerbread banana pancakes one of my new favorites!

Basically, I am gingerbread obsessed! I have been making a gingerbread latte every morning since Halloween haha. If you’re gingerbread obsessed, check out my baked gingerbread oats, I pretty much totally skip over pumpkin. In my opinion, gingerbread >>> pumpkin. But don’t get me wrong, anything in pancake form and I’m down 😉

I just love mini pancakes. First off, they’re wayyyy easier to flip. Second, it feels like you have so much more food to eat! Give me easy + more food every day 😉 I also am slightly obsessed with stacking them which is much easier with mini pancakes haha. If you want some other fun easy pancake recipes check out my sweet potato pancakes, snickerdoodle paleo pancakes, and chocolate pumpkin paleo pancakes.

The key to making banana pancakes is to not completely mash the banana. Leave it a little chunkier and it gives the pancakes a better texture. I like to add in collagen or protein powder so it helps keep me full longer. Collagen doesn’t add any flavor to it but a vanilla protein powder would be amazing as well.

This recipe makes about 7-8 mini pancakes! You can share them or eat them all yourself 😉 I prefer not to share haha. But you could also double to recipe if you need to feed a family! Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas friends!!

2 eggs

1 banana

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp ginger

1 scoop protein powder or collagen


  1. Heat a skillet over low medium heat
  2. In a bowl, whisk two eggs together
  3. In a separate bowl, mash banana but not completely, leave it a little chunky.
  4. Add the mashed banana into the bowl with the eggs and mix together
  5. Add the spices and the protein/collagen into the bowl and mix together
  6. When everything is mixed together, make small pancakes in the skillet. I use about a big spoonful. If you make them small, they’re easier to flip.
  7. Served here with honey, cinnamon, and bananas on top.


You can add 1/2 tsp of baking powder to give them a little fluffiness if you want!
