Eek! Sorry for the posting hiatus! I drove to New York for a late Easter with the fam and then got sick! But, I'm back and so are the recipes!!
Breakfast it by far my most favorite meal of the day. Historically, pancakes are my favorite thing, specifically banana-walnut pancakes. So I miss them! These pancakes are a delicious alternative to regular pancakes. You can even add your favorite ingredients to them if you want! Make a big batch and store them in the fridge, heat them up for 25-30 seconds for a super quick breakfast treat!
Paleo Pancakes (thanks for the recipe Elana's Pantry!)
¼ cup agave nectar**
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cups blanched almond flour
½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
grapeseed oil for sautéing
In a blender, combine eggs, agave and vanilla and blend on high until smooth
Add almond flour, salt and baking soda and blend again to incorporate dry ingredients into batter
Let batter sit for 15-20 minutes to thicken up
Warm grapeseed oil in a large skillet over medium heat
Ladle pancake batter onto skillet - make silver dollar size
Pancakes will form little bubbles, when bubbles open, flip pancakes over and cook other side
Remove from heat to a plate
Repeat process with remaining batter, adding more oil to skillet as needed
**In an effort to reduce my sugar I halved the amount of agave.
