Paleo pancakes

Breakfast is definitely that hardest meal to find low carb options. I usually opt for some nuts or two eggs sunny side up, but occasionally its nice to participate in a bigger breakfast. Here is a recipe for grain free, no sugar added pancakes that are, in my opinion, actually better than regular pancakes. They kept me full for hours because of how much fiber and good fat they have in them! They are weighty in protein,

2 eggs
1 tablespoon chia seeds + 3 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 to 3/4 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup mashed banana (1 large banana or 1 + 1/2 smaller bananas)
2 + 1/2 tablespoons almond meal
1/2 tablespoon shredded coconut (not essential to the recipe but tasty to add)
coconut oil for the skillet or some other oil to keep from sticking

Soak chia seeds and water together and stir to create a gooey substance. Mash banana in a separate bowl then combine all ingredients together and stir until well mixed.

Place about 3 tablespoons worth of the substance onto the skillet and using a fork press out slightly to the sides. Let each pancake cook thoroughly on one side before flipping. They take a bit longer than normal pancakes to cook, and it is best to let them get well cooked before flipping so they don't break apart.

Thats it! Paleo pancakes
