Chocolate Peanut Butter Pancakes

Yes, please!  We are on week two of GAPS and I’d be lying if I said it hasn’t been hard.  I am mentally, physically and emotionally drained.  Choosing to do GAPS along side Parker has me going through detox and withdrawal symptoms, despite how clean I ate before.  I have to remember when I feel like I can’t keep going that this will all pass in due time.  The kids have been doing fairly well even though they put up fights.  It wouldn’t be normal if they didn’t give me push back on some of what we are doing.  But in the spirit of making the best of our situation, I created these absolutely mouth watering Chocolate Peanut Butter pancakes that are naturally GAPS approved. They really are THAT good and a nice break from plain ole’ eggs!  Enjoy!


Chocolate Peanut Butter Pancakes

Author: The Allergy Free Family

1 large ripe banana
4 eggs
1 tbs peanut butter
1 tbs raw cacao powder
1 tbs coconut flour (or more depending on desired thickness)*
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
dash of celtic sea salt

*The type of coconut flour and desired thickness can alter the amount of coconut flour used.  Start with 1 tbs and add by tsp if deciding to increase. It also helps if you give the batter a few minutes to rest so the coconut flour can bloom a little so to speak. Then gently whisk before pouring out pancakes. If you want thinner crepe like pancakes then use 2 tsp of coconut flour.

Whisk all ingredients in a bowl until smooth and no banana lumps. Cook on an lightly oiled grilled on low heat. For best results, lightly whisk batter in between each pour of batter.

Top with honey, cacao nibs, bananas, coconut flakes, or even more peanut butter!

Can sub out cacao powder for unsweetened cocoa for those not on GAPS.
