Wellness Wednesdays: Paleo Pancakes

     

    Hello Friends,

    So, what in the world makes a pancake “Paleo” ?
    They’re dairy free and grain free! Seems almost impossible, right?
    (note: I am NOT supporting the paleo diet as a healthy lifestyle choice)

    Unlike your typical order of short stacks, which give you a sugar rush that is immediately followed by having to take a nap, these little buggers have just the right amount of fat, carbs and protein to keep you energized and satiated for hours.

    I created these light and airy pancakes for our 10 Day Health Challenge Spring Guide and my bet is they become your Sunday staple too 🙂
    (you can still get the 40+ healthy recipes here)

    So, what’s in them….

    2) Scramble the egg with vanilla and salt and add to the mixture. Combine well

    3) Melt the coconut oil in a nonstick pan, pour in half of the batter and cook for about 2 minutes on each side. Repeat with other half of the batter.

    4) Serve topped with a drizzle of honey and slivered almonds
