When I was on a strict Paleo diet, the hardest thing for me was finding the right things to eat for Breakfast. I recall having one successful recipe that became my weekly go-to breakfast, but after weeks and weeks on paleo banana bread breakfast muffins, I was well and truly over them!

Those muffins did serve me well, and I’m sure they’ll make a come-back one day, but for now, these grain-free chocolate pancakes are a great stand-in. They’re quicker and easier than the breakfast muffins, and the rest of my family love them too.

They are not strictly Paleo, as they have a little potato starch in them, but they’re certainly grain-free, dairy free and refined sugar free.
