Even after the carb flu has passed, however, you will still sometimes get a hankering for old favorites, and it can be a great help to have some "paleo-friendly" versions standing by to get you through it. Not only that, but there are literally thousands of delicious dishes available for people who choose to eat primally, most of which far surpass their conventional counterparts in terms of both taste and healthiness. Case in point: banana almond pancakes.
These are just as easy (if not easier) to make as the standard wheat flour variety, they taste better, and they're incomparably more healthy for you. This is my preferred flapjack, and one of those food items that made learning to eat for Evolutionary Power a real pleasure.
2 bananas (preferably not green)
1 large egg
A big, heaping tablespoon of almond butter (add a bit more for an even fluffier pancake)
Optional: a bit of vanilla extract and/or a dash of cinnamon for extra goodness
Butter, coconut oil, or olive oil for frying
Mash the bananas with a fork. Stir in the egg and almond butter (and vanilla and/or cinnamon, if desired), mixing all ingredients well. Drop a spoonful of batter into a medium-hot skillet that's been well-greased with butter, coconut oil, or olive oil, forming a pancake about 4-inches in diameter. Brown on each side and serve warm. These taste great plain, or you can add a drizzle of honey, a bit of pure maple syrup, or top 'em with berries to taste. Makes about half a dozen 4-inch flapjacks.
