Sometimes a dinner blog….isn’t

Everyone loves dinner for breakfast every once in a while. So here’s a guest post from my sis on a really yummy Paleo pancake! Enjoy!

Hi everyone!  It’s Marissa, guest blogger and Penni’s sister.

My husband has been on a pancake and waffle spree, but I’m not much into either made with regular flour.  Today I decided to go for a Paleo Pancake, and since I simply can never make a recipe exact, I’ll tell you what I was basing my recipe on, and what I did!

Here’s the original recipe and instructions, courtesy of Civilized Caveman Cooking:


  • 3 bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup nut butter, I prefer almond butter
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon


  1. Preheat a skillet to 350 degrees fahrenheit
  2. Combine all of your ingredients in your blendtech, blender, or food processor and mix well until you have a batter
  3. Grease your skillet with coconut oil and pour your batter making 3-4 inch pancakes
  4. Cook 2-3 minutes per side and then flip for 2-3 minutes
  5. Serve topped with some grass fed butter or topping of your choice
  6. Enjoy

I’m currently doing The 21 Day Fix (more info below) so I wanted the recipe to work for my food needs for the day.  Here’s what I did:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tsp almond butter
  • About ½ teaspoon cinnamon, could’ve used more


I was thinking this would be for breakfast today and save the extras for another breakfast, and (FYI 21 Day Fixers) that it would be 1 red, 1 purple, 2 tsp.

I used my food processor to mix it, and a griddle on my stove top.

It ended up making 9 pancakes!!  I had 3 this morning, plain, nothing on them.  I have 2 sets for future breakfasts.

They were awesome!!

Next time I make them, when I’m not doing the 21 Day Fix, I will likely try the Civilized Caveman recipe and see how they compare.  I’d love to try my recipe with more nut butter, too!


FYI:  The 21 Day Fix is a health and fitness program, 21 Days, 30 minute workouts, portion controlled healthy eating.  For more info, please feel free to email me at
