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.

Cajun Blackened Tilapia


I am not a big fish eater, I never have been.  That all changed when I was introduced to Veron’s Cajun Seasoning. It is hands down my favorite cajun seasoning. It is a perfect blend of sweet and spicy.  It comes in five flavors- original, hot, mesquite, lemon, and garlic. Veron’s Original is my favorite.


1 stick of butter

4 medium tilapia fillets

1 can of Veron’s Orignal seasoning


Heat skillet to high heat

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in skillet per fillet

Rub a generous amount of seasoning on both sides of fillet

Cook fish about 3 minutes on each side until flakey
