Paleo Pancakes

My recent urge to get fit is humorous for some, because I'm really not the most athletic, but hey, I'm trying. That's why I'm at least fortunate enough to know how to eat right and incorporate more quality protein into my diet. 

A while back, I learned how to make these pancakes from a friend who is a complete paleo diet guru. Because I'm so used to making pancakes with flour, I will admit I was a bit skeptical, but these are absolutely amazing! I love the fact that just 2 pancakes provide 12 grams of protein. I enjoy loading my pancakes with extra fresh blueberries and a drizzle of pure maple syrup, but feel free to top with whatever fruit/sweetener you prefer. 



1. Combine almond butter and eggs in a food processor or blender until smooth, about 30 seconds.


2. Preheat a non-stick griddle or skillet over medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter in a slow steam onto the pan (do 2 at a time) and dot with blueberries. Cook for 1 minute per side, or until fluffy and golden brown. Transfer to a platter and repeat the process until all pancakes are made.



3. To serve, top pancakes with more fresh blueberries and a drizzle of maple syrup.
