2tablespoonsmilk(alternatively use almond milk, soy milk, or water)
Place all ingredients in a large bowl. Use an immersion blender to blend everything together until batter is smooth and there are no chunks of bananas, about 1 minute. If you don't have an immersion blender, you can also put everything in a standard blender or food processor. See recipe notes for mixing by hand.
Heat a griddle over low to medium low heat. Grease griddle and pour about 2 tablespoons batter for each pancake. Spread the batter slightly with a silicone spoon. (TIP: For almond flour pancakes, smaller is better and easier for flipping.) Cook for 2-3 minutes on one side, or until bubbles start to form and bottom is set enough to flip. Flip and continue cooking for 2 minutes longer, or until cooked. Remove and transfer to a wire rack or keep warm until ready to serve.
Repeat with the remaining batter until all the pancakes are cooked. Serve with fresh fruit, maple syrup, or blueberry syrup. Makes 11-12 pancakes.

The almond butter or peanut butter will blend in smoother if it is slightly warmed in the microwave first.Stir together dry ingredients - almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in blended wet ingredients until well mixed. Cook as directed.
Modifications for different diets
Dairy Free Pancakes - Use non-dairy milk.
Low Carb Keto Pancakes - Replace maple syrup with 1-2 tablespoons erythritol or coconut sugar. Omit the banana and replace it with 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce or just leave it out. This brings total carbs to 4 grams per 4 inch pancake.
Paleo Pancakes - All the ingredients are paleo, but be sure to use unsweetened almond milk and make sure there are no added sugars in the almond butter.
Whole 30 Pancakes - Everything in the recipe is whole 30 compliant except the maple syrup. Omit it from the recipe and rely on the almond flour and banana's natural sweetness. Be sure to use non-dairy milk.
Vegan / Egg Free Pancakes - Although I haven't tested the recipe this way I do believe chia seeds would work based off this recipe for Vegan Chia Seed Pancakes. Use 3 tablespoons chia seeds and let the batter sit for 10 minutes.
