Who needs IHOP?
Guys, so far everyone is doing really well with the Paleo Challenge. People are starting to feel and see the power that their diets play in their health, body composition and daily performance here at CFNE. The results thus far are great and its going to be amazing to see what everyone is like when this challenge finishes. So, with that, we figured it was time to reward you guys with something that we think really switches up your breakfast meal and gives you the satisfaction of having something that you remember to be bad but now can be oh so good. Remember those fluffy fruit filled pancakes on Saturday mornings? You know the ones I am talking about and I bet you are now remembering the taste. Here's your new recipe:
Perfect Paleo Pancakes
^ 1 cup almond flour
^ 3 large eggs
^ 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
^ 1/8 tsp cinnamon ... or more if you like it
^ 2 tbsp coconut milk (real coconut milk not light)
^ Any kind of fresh fruit you like (Apples, mixed berries, banana)
^ Combine all ingredients in a bowl (The batter will be appear a little thicker than the normal old pancake mix you remember)
^ In a lightly-oiled, non-stick frying pan over medium heat, drop a bit of the batter on the pan...try to keep the pancakes on the smaller/medium size.
^ About when the bubbles start showing up on the top, flip like you would any "normal healthy" pancake
^ Put on a plate...add more fruit if you want...how about some coconut flakes?...cacao nibs anyone? ...ENJOY!
P.S. To those of you who follow this blog who competed in this past weekends New England Sectional, congratulations on taking a step into the competition circle and putting everything you had on the line. What a great weekend!
