Following our trials and tribulations as we attempt to remove all grains, many starchy vegetables and most sugars from our diet while maintaining our love of good food! We strive to make all of our recipes GAPS and/or SCD compliant. Note: We didn't know about "Grain-Free Gourmet" when we chose our name. We are not affiliated with those good folks.

My personal preference for posting recipes here is that they be "company-worthy". That is to say that someone who is not on a special diet would eat the dish, and say "Wow, this is good!" and not even think that it's part of some unusual regimen. (Other posters here may have a different standard, and that's OK!)

These pancakes are an exception to my "rule". I don't think regular eaters would enjoy them very much, but for us...they're pretty darn good. My toddler can't get enough of them, and it's a good way to get eggs into him.

Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes

1 very ripe banana, mashed
2 Tbsp. salted peanut butter
3 eggs


Blend all of the ingredients together with a whisk or hand mixer. Pour onto a greased (I use ghee) griddle that's been preheated to "medium". Cook until done on one side, flip and watch carefully as second side seems to cook more quickly.

I serve these with butter and honey mixed with fresh lemon juice. I also had them with a quick raspberry syrup made from heated frozen raspberries and honey. That was good too.


  1. Teri!

    I just found your blog and I am so excited! We are also doing gaps and my blog is devoted to *Thrifty* Grain-Free living! You can read my story and our family's journey on my blog. I'm excited to dig through your archives as well!

    I am totally going to make these pancakes tomorrow, as I have all the ingredients. My kids don't like "eggs" either so I have to sneak them into all kinds of things!

    Great to see you!


  2. I've made so many waffle variations lately, that I've been wanting to make a GF pancake. I cant eat eggs, so I'll try substituting it with tapioca. Thanks for posting the recipe!

  3. I'm glad you both found us. I hope we can provide more inspiration.


  4. This was a great recipe!
    i really enjoyed it!

  5. Yum, yum, yum! A huge hit with the kids (and mom, too. :) I'm thrilled to have discovered this blog as we're just finishing our first week of GAPS and I really needed some recipe guidance/help. This blog makes me feel like I really can do it! We'll be making these pancakes often. Thanks!

  6. I tried these pancakes without the banana today and they turned out just fine. Probably even easier to cook.

  7. Wow, I have a gluten free father-in-law and this would be perfect! Thanks!

  8. These DO look good. I made my own coconut cream pbutter that these would be delicious made out of, or some chunky almond butter

  9. i made these today with sunflower seed butter. the girl child liked them but the boy child rejected them. :) my daughter seems to like anything i fry in ghee though lol!

  10. These are delish! and so easy to make. They were great microwaved the next day too - they stayed moist.
