Chocolate Chip Banana Pancake Casserole

This Chocolate Chip Banana Pancake Casserole is going to be the new hit of your brunch and weekend parties. It’s made with my popular fluffy paleo pancakes, and really, who doesn’t love a chocolate chip and banana combination?

I think my new favorite thing is a meal made in casserole form. It’s like the new one-pan meals and bowls that I’ve been loving. Easy to transport and fun to eat. Plus, all the flavors come together in the most delightful way.

This breakfast casserole requires a tiny bit of extra work from your traditional pancakes, but it’s super delicious and so fun to eat– it’s worth it!Paleo Pancake Casserole

    Fluffy Paleo Pancakes [VIDEO]

    I used to experiment a lot more with protein pancakes, 2-ingredient pancakes, and so on. While I love those (and ate them everyday for like 3 months at one point), I wanted pancakes that actually TASTE and have the texture of real pancakes.

    Fluffy Paleo Pancakes

    I’m not kidding when I say these Fluffy Paleo Pancakes are the real deal. They’re based off of my cinnamon crunch pancakes, and are really just the perfect pancake base, ever. I make batches of the mix for my mom every time she comes to visit, and she’s not grain-free!
