GAPS to the rescue.

The past few days my family has been trying to do a modified full GAPS/paleo diet in order to help my four-year old’s unhappy tummy settle down. Out of all my kids, she’s the one who loves carbs the most. Breads, potatoes, rice, crackers, chips, muffins… she could live off them!

Needless to say I was worried that a terrible storm would unleash at every grainless meal, but so far God has blessed mealtimes with relative calm. Said daughter hasn’t even been asking for bread or tortilla chips! In fact, her overall attitude has been much “more upper” as she would say.  ;)

Baby Banana Pancakes

While on our modified GAPS, I’ve been trying out a few new breakfasts. One of them being these little banana pancakes. They were a huge hit this morning. With every bite she inhaled I heard, “Oh! These are SOOO cute!”

Score one point for cuteness, I guess…

More gaps-friendly breakfasts.

Throughout our time on the GAPS Diet, we’ve learned to enjoy many grain-free breakfasts. Here are a few more of our favorites.

Easy Baby Banana Pancakes

Free from grain, gluten, dairy, and refined sugar.



Heat skillet over medium heat. I love to cook these on my little cast iron skillet.

Place all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well with hand mixers, a blender (I use my Blendtec), or mash reeeeally well with a fork. (It’s ok to have a few little banana chunks.)

Pour 2-3 tablespoons of batter onto hot skillet and cook for about 1 minute. 

Flip and repeat.
