One of the hardest things about eating only Paleo is eating eggs EVERYDAY for breakfast, and honestly I think it gets old! So, I decided to change it up this morning by making Paleo Pancakes as seen on the CrossFit Central recipe share website (Eat Clean, Live Strong). Although, I decided to modify the recipe because I didn’t want 1/2 c. almond butter sitting in my gut!
Here is my modified recipe:
– 2 eggs
– 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
– 1/4c. almond butter (the original recipe calls for 1/2c. almond butter and omits the flax seed)
– 1/4 c. ground flax seed
– 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
– 1/4 tsp. vanilla
The other recipe also says to use coconut oil to put in the pan before cooking, but I did not use it because it has 12gms of saturated fat and because I have Calphalon pans and you don’t have to use cooking oil or spray!
Feel free to top the pancakes with whatever fruit you please.
The pancakes are really moist enough that you don’t really need any kind of honey or syrup like normal pancakes. Normally, I would use the sugar free syrup, but since artificial sweeteners are not allowed, I sucked it up and ate them plain. But like I said, try a few bites without syrup or honey and see what you think.
Peace. Love. Pancakes. Coffee.
