Almond Power Pancakes

Almond Power Pancakes

Have I told you how much I love for breakfast? Well, I love breakfast.  If we could scratch out lunch and dinner and just have three breakfasts per day, I would be okay with that.  I am certain that 95% of my favorite foods are breakfast items, so one might say that I have an addiction to breakfast.  It may be a problem but once again, I am okay with that.

You should make this for breakfast tomorrow.  That’s right.  Go out to the store, buy some almond flour (if you do not already have some) and make these for your family for brunch tomorrow.  Although these are healthy, I would not recommend making these every day, but if I could make them everyday…I most definitely would.

The key to being healthy is finding ways to our favorite not-so-healthy meals into healthier and lighter versions with the same amount of flavor.  Therefore, when a delicious healthier option for a pancake comes around like this one, it is hard to not jump for joy and make them everyday.  I am still jumping for joy.

Dang. I want some pancakes right now at a 11pm.  Dang you pancakes.

Ingredients

3/4 cup almond flour

1/3 cup almond milk

2 large egg whites, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tsp. raw honey or agave nectar (optional)

1/4 cup fresh berries (topping)

1 tablespoon coconut oil

Directions

1)  In a small bowl, mix together almond flour, almond milk, egg whites, cinnamon and sweetener (if adding).  *** I did not use any sweetener and they were still delicious.

2)  In a non-stick skillet, melt coconut oil over medium heat.  Divide batter into two medium sized pancakes.  When pancakes start to bubble (about 45 seconds-1 minute), flip over to other side.  Let cook through (about another 1 1/2 minute-2 minutes).

3) Repeat process until all batter is used up.

4) Top with fresh berries and serve off the skillet!

5) Share and Enjoy!

Fun notes- This recipe only makes about four pancakes, so if you need more….just double the recipe! You really do not need any syrup for these…the berries gave them a really sweet touch but if you do, pass the Maple syrup please!  These are delicious, paleo, gluten-free, healthy and all that jazz so everyone will be singing your healthnut praises with these bad boys.  Breakfast tomorrow, yes please.
