My Mom has such a fond mem­o­ry around that ques­tion, “who wants pancakes?”

I’ll save that sto­ry for anoth­er time, but I will say, every time I make pan­cakes, I always make a point of ask­ing that ques­tion out loud, even if I’m the only one in the room!

These gluten free, dairy free, pro­tein packed alter­na­tive to a box mix are cer­tain­ly worth try­ing. The recipe makes 20 medi­um size pancakes…two are miss­ing from the pho­to due to taste test­ing by Joe and I!

After I had my serv­ing of 5 pan­cakes, I put the remain­ing cakes in a plas­tic con­tain­er and popped them into the fridge. They will reheat beau­ti­ful­ly in the microwave, toast­er or oven.

If you love pan­cakes but tend to avoid them because of those “emp­ty” calo­ries, I do hope you will give these a try! They WILL sat­is­fy that crav­ing and they will do your body GOOD!

And by the way, if you have a healthy ver­sion of a recipe you like OR would like a mod­i­fi­ca­tion to one you use, but aren’t sure where to start, I would LOVE to hear from you and help you with that!

Author Liz Geeslin


  • 1 1/​2 cups egg whites I buy them in a car­ton in the egg aisle
  • 2 small bananas
  • 1/​4 cup peanut but­ter, creamy I use San­ta Cruz Organ­ic No Stir
  • 2 Tbls coconut flour I use Bob’s Red Mill
  • 1 tsp vanil­la
  • 1 tsp cin­na­mon
  • 1/​2 tsp nut­meg
  • oil for the skil­let I use MCT oil 


  • Put all of the ingre­di­ents into a 4 cup Pyrex mea­sur­ing cup and blend with an immer­sion blender or use a reg­u­lar blender to combine.
  • Heat a non stick pan over medi­um high heat and brush with oil.
  • Pour about a 3 inch diam­e­ter cir­cle for each pan­cake, bet­ter to be small­er than too big and don’t crowd them in your pan!
  • After bub­bles start to appear on the top, flip over and cook for just a minute. The cakes are thin and won’t take long.
  • Place on a wire rack to cool or serve immediately!


As far as the macros go, here they are for 1/​4 of the recipe…you can adjust accord­ing­ly from those num­bers depend­ing on how many you eat!
