3-Ingredient Paleo Pancakes


2015/05/27 by nikkiledford

It’s incredible that this recipe has not been immortalized on my blog yet. I mean, you can just type “paleo pancake” into any search engine and you will likely come across this EXACT recipe. These are definitely not original nor a culinary feat. BUT… they are perfect. They work every time. Which is important when you can get lost in a pinterest board of 100 different paleo pancakes recipes. I’ve been making these for myself and guests for the past 5 years and they are loved each time.

The recipe is really simple which means you can customize depending on your pantry and your kitchen.

For example:

At my family’s mountain cabin (with no electricity) I make these by hand, mashing the bananas and mixing the ingredients with a fork.

At home I blend in my blender for a smooth, round pancake every time.

If I have crunchy almond butter, creamy almond butter, peanut butter, sunflower seed butter, or any other number of nut butters, I will use it. My favorite is smooth raw almond butter though. From a nutritional perspective, I feel like using raw nuts before cooking results in less oxidative damage to the nut oils. If you use roasted nut butter, you are reheating a substance that has already been heated… not the best thing for the delicate nut oils (and ultimately your cells).

Peace, Love, and Kale... and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to me and sweet baby Atlas. I got out of the house this morning and went straight to yoga and then to get my fav smoothie from @projectjuice Let the birthday festivities begin! My little man turns ONE on Monday and we are celebrating with a blueberry picnic tomorrow. Complete with Mango Blueberry Salsa and blue corn chips. The first of many yummy Blueberry-themed noms. 
#blueberryparty #atlasjacobledford #yearoneofatlas MOTHERHOOD// I'm a little embarrassed at the lack of impressive food posts lately.
As Atlas has begun to eat more food, I find myself just munching on things while I prepare his meals, never really sitting down to my own. Breakfast is some eggs and berries. Lunch, some deli meat and @primalkitchenfoods mayo with a banana and almond butter. Dinner usually includes a quickly grilled piece of meat atop some lettuce greens and any chopped veggies and quick dressing. It's not glamorous at all, definitely not "Instagram worthy".
It's just real life right now and I'm hoping to get into a groove pretty soon and get back to  creating mealtimes instead of surviving them. I mean "surviving" in the best possible way. My kid loves to eat real healthy foods and it's so fun to explore this new part of his day. My creativity is taking a big hit though and I long for some real thoughtful meals at my dinner table with my main man.
Until then sausage/salsa/lettuce wraps will do.
