Banana Flour Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

My brother Harrison bought me some WEDO Gluten-Free Banana Flour for Christmas this past year, and ever since then I've been using it in almost all of my recipes! I'm obsessed!  It is so amazing! It works just like wheat in so many recipes! Banana Flour is healthy, low-sugar, grain free, paleo, and full of nutrients! The only ingredient is green bananas!! 
I was quite excited when I got my local nutrition store to carry WEDO! #bananaflourselfie!!

So since we are officially into Fall, I decided my first recipe to post should include pumpkin! These pancakes are super simple to make and are delicious! You only need a few ingredients to make these amazing paleo pancakes!

These pancakes are seriously the BEST paleo pancakes you will ever have! I am not joking. You all need Banana Flour in your life!!!!

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes


  • 1/2 cup Wedo Banana Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup Organic Pumpkin Puree
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Honey Almond Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil (to grease pan)
Optional: Serve with Bacon, Maple Syrup, Grass-fed Butter, and/or Cinnamon, to top 

Add banana flour, baking powder, spices, pumpkin puree, eggs, maple syrup, almond milk, apple cider vinegar and salt to a blender. Blend until thoroughly combined.

Heat coconut oil in a pan over medium heat. Once pan is heated, add about 1/3 cup of batter in pan to make a 4 inch pancake. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until bottom of the pancake is golden and firm. Flip and cook for about another 3 minutes. Repeat until all batter is used up.

Recipe serves about 4 people.

Enjoy, let me know what you all think of the recipe if you try it! :)

Balanced Life

About me......

    So this is my first ever blog post!! I'll start by introducing myself. My name is Juliet, I'm a total foodie and coffee lover! I absolutely LOVE to cook and bake! I make breakfast, lunch, and dinner for my family and I every day! I love eating healthy and exercising every day. For the past four years, I've lived a paleo/primal lifestyle. I named my blog "Paleo Rebel" because I am not 100% paleo all the time! I believe everything in moderation is key to a healthy life. Ever since I've eliminated all processed foods from my diet, I feel great! 

    Along with my passion for cooking and exercising, I love traveling with my family (and pets,) listening to country music, going to concerts and wearing Junk Gypsy!! 

I am soo excited to share some of my delicious & healthy recipes with you all!! 

 Thanks for reading!! -Juliet
