Almond Butter Pancakes with Dark Chocolate

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.  I mean who doesn’t like breakfast?!  We used to have biscuits, french toast, oatmeal or some other grain for breakfast.  When we decided to eat a more primal diet I was thinking about all the delicious breakfast food I wouldn’t be able to eat.  It never occurred to me that breakfast is much more than grains and I am so glad I’ve been delivered from that school of thought.  I discovered a version of this recipe in Robb Wolf’s  The Paleo Solution.  I tweaked it a bit to make it my own. I promise you won’t miss the traditional version of a pancake and if you do your taste buds are missing out.

  • Delicious! Hands down the best pancakes I’ve ever had. No hype. Simply the best tasting pan-cooked breakfast cake I’ve experienced. The fact that it’s gluten-free/grain-free is all bonus.
