Paleo Protein Packed Pancakes, Gluten Free, Dairy Free

These paleo protein packed pancakes are gluten free, dairy free and taste delicious.

Coconut flour is one of my favorite gluten free flours.  Not only does it taste amazing, but it has numerous health benefits including, high in fiber, high in protein and healthy fats.
  

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegetarian

Ingredients:

1 egg
1/2 banana mashed
1 teaspoon coconut flour
1/8 cup almond milk 
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions:

Mash your banana and add to your egg.
Add remaining ingredients and mix together.
Heat a non stick pan and spray with cooking spray.
Pour a large spoonful of batter into your pan.
Cook on 1 side until all the edges are cooked and pancake is bubbling. This will take several minutes and is longer to cook than a traditional pancake.
Turn and cook until other side is brown.

Fruit Topping:

1/2 cup of mixed fruit.  I used strawberries & blueberries.
Add 1 to 2 teaspoons of date syrup, maple syrup or honey.
Add a few splashes of water.
Cook over the stove until fruit is soft and pour over your pancakes.

Enjoy ...

Notes:  
Be patient as these pancakes take longer to cook than traditional pancakes.
Be sure to cook longer on the first side.
Using your spatula, gradually go around the entire pancake to be sure it does not stick before flipping.
