Messy Maple Pecan Pancakes

Messy Maple Pecan Pancakes

I'm posting a recipe from Paleo Parents. I have made a few changes to give them to give them underlying tones of maple and pecan but feel free to omit them if you're trying to reduce your sugar intake!


  • 2 Cups Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1 Banana, cut into small pieces
  • 4 Eggs
  • 2/3 Cups light coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped pecans


In a food processor, process banana, eggs, pecans, maple syrup and milk until smooth.

Add the remaining ingredients (except coconut oil) and pulse to combine.

In a large skillet, melt coconut oil over medium heat.

Pour batter into hot skillet to form 4 inch diameter pancakes.

Cook until bottom is golden brown and flips easily, about 3 – 5 minutes, and flip (as with regular pancakes, this will also be when all the little bubbles have popped). Cook the other side about 3 minutes to get an even color.

Top with maple syrup, ghee and chopped pecan pieces!
