Blueberry Primal Pancakes

These "primal" pancakes are an awesome substitute to real pancakes! While we are not on the Paleo Diet, we have several friends who are. Our friend Kelley recently posted this recipe she found on Mark's Daily Apple and I had to make them. I made some adjustments to my recipe, but you can try either version. We absolutely enjoyed them, hope you do too!

Have a great weekend friends!

Blueberry Almond Banana Pancakes
(4-6 small pancakes)

- 2 Bananas
- 2 Eggs
- 2-3 Heaping Tbsp of Almond Butter (I used raw almond butter)
- 1/2tsp Vanilla
- 1/2-1c Blueberries ( I used frozen ones)
  1. Mash the bananas, eggs, and almond butter together to form a batter consistency.
  2. Stir in the vanilla extract and blueberries.
  3. Heat a pan to medium heat. I added coconut oil to my pan to get a nice "crust" on my pancake.
  4. Cook each side for 2-4mins, use a large spatula and check to see that the side is golden brown before you flip. 
These are much more delicate than your average pancake due to the ingredients, so use a larger spatula and smaller rounds if possible. My first one broke in half, but I let the second pancake sit longer and handled it much more gently and it turned out perfect! You can enjoy these with or without butter/maple syrup.
