pancakes all day

Last night I ate pancakes for dinner. It was absolutely frigid out, and I was craving something comforting, sweet, and warm.... Mr. Butter was out for a business dinner, so I made pancakes.  I arranged my plate, laptop, tv remote, and phone on my crosslegged lap, and tucked in to a few episodes of The Crown.
This has become one of my favorite recipes for two reasons: one because it so simple, and two it's relatively healthy. These are paleo pancakes, and they only have 7 ingredients (4 of which are optional spices/flavoring/blueberries).  I'm almost not embarrassed to admit I have these pancakes at least once a week, usually for breakfast but sometimes for a snack w afternoon coffee, occasionally for dinner, and ALWAYS w a slug of good maple syrup.


1/4 cup Paleo Flour  -  I love Bob's Red Mill Paleo Flour
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla

pinch of cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg,  fresh grated if possible
drop or orange oil, or 1/2 tsp orange zest

Blueberries of course!


Place your pan on a med-high burner, add spray of  coconut oil, or feel free to use butter if you're so inclined.

In a small bowl mix together all of the ingredients, saving the blueberries for the very last.  If your batter seems a bit thick, add a splash of water, nut milk, or milk to thin it.  It should be the same consistency as regular pancake batter, if not a little thicker.

Pour the batter into the pan.  These pancakes cook a bit more quickly than regular pancakes, why I don't know.... (Someone should look that up, and feel free to share).

After about 3-5 min, flip the pancake and cook the 2nd side for 3-5 minutes more.   Remove from the pan,  add butter, or coconut oil, or syrup.  If you add syrup, make sure to finish w/ a sprinkle of flaky sea salt.  It makes everything better.
