Paleo Pancakes


Sunday was one of those amazing days! No plans or commitments, beautiful weather... and pancakes! They were SUPER easy to make, too. It was a tasty and wonderful way to start out a day of lounging and gardening. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend, too!
Now today, however, was back to reality and crossfit at its best! Muscle ups, handstand push ups, burpee box jumps and maneaters... OH MY! Good thing I was still fueling from my Sunday morning pancakes! Ahhhh, even the memory is nice! :-)

Recipe (serves two):
2 eggs
1/2 C unsweetened applesauce
1/2 C almond butter
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
Coconut oil (as needed to grease the skillet)

Heat skillet or griddle to a low/medium heat. Mix all ingredients together until batter is smooth and uniform. Grease skillet with coconut oil. I used an electric non-stick griddle and did not need coconut oil. Pour batter onto griddle. This recipe made 4, 4-inch pancakes. Flip after 1-2 minutes. Serve with your choice of topping!
They were perfectly tasty with NO topping, but here are some other ideas:
Cut up apple pieces with cinnamon, heated blueberries, fresh diced strawberries, real maple syrup, agave nectar, unsweetened applesauce, or an all fruit preserve.
Enjoy! :-)

I can't wait to try these this weekend.

I'm not much of a cook so I was wondering if you can tell me how to make a paleo-friendly "shake n' bake"- type breadcrumb mix for meats?

Sure... what I usually do for a breading is mix almond meal (Trader Joe's-about 1/2 C), dried parsley flakes (quite a bit... about 2 T), and spices of your choice, like: ground black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, ground cumin, coriander, and maybe even a pinch of grey sea salt. You can add it to a zip lock bag and use it as your "shake n' bake". It works really well! Hope that helps! Thanks!
