Banana Fritters {Grain-Free, Paleo}

banana fritters


Breakfast is my absolute favorite meal of the day to prepare! I homeschool my kids so we have leisurely breakfasts on the mornings we don’t have co-op or somewhere to be. I really enjoy the luxury of letting the kids have time in the morning to eat that healthy first-meal-of-the-day.

I try not to be too grain-heavy *every* morning. Sourdough pancakes are a staple around here as are eggs and bacon. Banana Fritters are really just a combo of pancakes and eggs if you think about it. Since we love banana pancakes, banana fritters are a fast favorite! 

I got the basic idea from Cara over at Health Home and Happiness. I love her blog and all her amazing grain-free recipes! I thought that bananas and eggs wouldn’t go together by themselves but the really do! It is such a simple recipe to make and great for when you are short on time.
