Paleo Pancakes and Sandwiches!

We have tried lots of different Paleo pancake recipes. Some involve using almond butter, some use bananas, other use almond meal...there are tons of possibilities. Our favorite though is the Coconut Flour Pancakes from The Primal Blueprint Cookbook. We feel like they are about as close to regular old pancakes as we're going to get.

This last week, we got two pints of raspberries and a pint of boysenberries in our CSA basket. Yum. We decided to make some berry "syrup" to top our pancakes with. This meal definitely felt a bit like a indulgent Saturday morning breakfast, but without any of the guilt.

For the syrup, we simply mashed up a couple of cups of berries and heated them on low while the pancakes were cooking. Like I mentioned before, we are trying to cut back on unnecessary sweetening things with honey, so we didn't add any this time around. Depending on how sweet the berries are already, I think a teaspoon or two of honey would be a nice addition next time.

One great thing about pancakes is that can be used to make a Paleo friendly sandwich! Jack (5yo) was super stoked about this one. We just slapped on some almond butter and honey and he was in heaven. The next day we made them again with some leftovers and we added in a little bit of our berry syrup as well. Super great little snack for the kiddos.
