Hearty Paleo Plantain Pancakes

Clearly I’m on a plantain kick.

Like I said, they are quickly becoming a kitchen staple.  Pancakes, on the other hand?  Yea, that’s nothing new.

With the incorporation of almond and coconut flours, these paleo-friendly pancakes with satisfy your craving for the traditional morning meal without weighing you down. Plantains are a great source of resistant starch, which works to feed the good bacteria in your gut. Give these grain-free cakes a try and you will be doing yourself a favor!
