We have decided to start a blog to share our recipes and to also keep them in a place we can easily access them. We hope you enjoy them and the little tid bits of our lives that we throw in. Most recipes will be based on primal principles although a few non-primal baked goods may slip in :)

Banana and almond topped pancakes

On this super cold and icy morning Adam and I needed something different from our usual bacon and eggs. In my new cookbook (Make it Paleo) there is a yummy recipe for coconut flour waffles or pancakes. I am not a big fan of pancakes but the picture in the book was too yummy looking to pass up.

Pancake/Waffle Ingredients:
1/4 cup of coconut flour
4 eggs
1 tbsp of milk (recipe calls for coconut milk but we used Snowville Creamery Whole Milk)
1 tbsp of cinnamon (if making the pancakes use just 1/4 tsp.)
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
1/4 tsp of baking soda

In a medium bowl mix all ingredient together with a hand mixer. Bring a skillet up to medium heat and add coconut oil. Pour 1/8 of the mixture into the middle of the skillet. Cook for 2 minutes on each side.

Heat waffle iron to waffle setting (medium heat). Drop batter into center, this batter does not expand like usual waffle batter. Usually takes about 3-5 minutes.

Banana Nut Topping:
2 bananas sliced
1 tsp of coconut oil
1/4 cup of pecans (we used almond slices because that is what we had)

Heat the coconut oil in a skillet on medium heat. Add banana. Sear slices until brown and crispy. Flip and add nuts. Once that side is crispy just give it all a good toss.

Top the pancakes/waffles with the banana nut topping and maple syrup.
