Fall is almost officially (Sept 23rd!) here so a warm breakfast is a MUST! These pancakes are high protein, warm, quick & Amy & Charly Approved!!

Ingredients
Serves 1 (double recipe for 2)
1 banana
2 eggs
Dash of nut milk (I use full fat coconut)
Dash of cinnamon
Coconut oil (for pan)

You can use a KitchenAid like me, a Vitamix or blender OR a good old fashioned fork & bowl. Blend banana, eggs, cinnamon & nut milk. Heat coconut oil in pan, pour mix on, add blueberries (optional). Flip when golden brown. I put my moms jelly on them but truly they are great plain. And YES eat the whole stack!!!
ENJOY!

CINNAMON AND COCONUT PANCAKES

I know Paleo pancakes are totally candy cigarettes but once in a while, I feel like making a stack. They’re definitely not the same as traditional pancakes (a bit denser and drier) but they will give you your carb fix.

Here’s what I gathered to make 6-8 pancakes (3” in diameter) to serve 1-2 people:

2 eggs
3 tablespoons coconut milk (I used defrosted So Delicious coconut milk)
1 tablespoon of Bob’s Red Mill organic coconut flour
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 small pinch of salt
Coconut oil (for frying)

How to make the pancakes:
Whisk eggs together until well combined. Then add rest of ingredients except coconut oil. Blend with a whisk until uniform. Heat a tablespoon of coconut oil over medium heat in a small cast iron skillet and add a tablespoon of batter to the pan. As soon as bubbles form on the surface…Flip the flapjack over and let it cook for another minute on the other side. Repeat until done with batter and enjoy!

Thank you to Nom Nom Paleo for this yummy recipe!
