detox with pancakes !

Happy New Year! I haven't posted anything since August... i know, i know, i know.  
Sooooo, in an effort to be a better blogger, and a healthier body in 2015 ( i know, i know, i know...) I'm starting the year with a recipe for truly healthy PANCAKES.  I don't know about you, but I find it  difficult to swallow a cold, green smoothie on a morning when the windchill factor is 21 BELOW zero.  I need something warm and comforting that pairs well with several cups of very hot (and very strong) coffee.
These pancakes are gluten-free, dairy free, and paleo (w/ the exception of the baking soda which you can omit if need be.)  I promise this recipe will fill your belly and warm your soul as you prepare to face these freezing cold winter days!

Pancakes - that are good for you !
(This recipe makes 1 large pancake guaranteed to be filling.  Recipe can be doubled, tripled, etc... One can also make smaller pancakes...)

1 egg
1/4 cup almond flour
1 Tablespoon ground flax seed
1/8 tsp salt
dash ( barely a whisper ) of baking soda
pinch of cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 -2 tablespoons of Almond Milk
blueberries or 1/2 banana if desired

Using a wire whisk, combine all ingredients thoroughly in a mixing bowl.  Add the almond milk 1 tablespoon at a time until the batter has reached a desired consistency ( just like a regular pancake).  Add some fruit, blueberries or 1/2 banana if you like.  

Place a skillet over medium heat.  Once the skillet is warm, spray w/ a bit of coconut oil- just enough to keep the pancake from sticking.  Pour the batter into the skillet and then cook as you would a regular pancake - about 4- 5 min on each side.

Once the pancake is cooked through,  move it to a plate, drizzle w/ raw honey(paleo option) or REAL maple syrup (grade b is best), and enjoy!
