I hope you all have had a good week!! Today I made Apple Pancakes..it has been on my to-do list for a couple weeks, but since I am starting my challenge group tomorrow and sugar detoxing, I decided to make them today and get it out of the way! I know everyone is posting pumpkin on everything recipes, I have done a couple as well, but I decided to throw apple into the mix too! After all…we can’t eat pumpkin with EVERYTHING right?!
I am pretty sure my neighbors think I’m crazy. I always go onto the balcony to take my photos…well unless its raining of course. Sometimes other people on their balconies watch me like “what is she doing?” they probably think I am taking photos for instagram or have too much time on my hands. Maybe one of these days I will share with them. I usually don’t only because people get freaked out when you say its Paleo…like they are going to die because it doesn’t have refined sugar lol. I am here to tell you all, it is OKAY…it’s healthy AND delicious!
Anyway…these are my announcements for today:

Here is the recipe for these Paleo Apple Pancakes!
1 apple, peeled and diced
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp raw honey
1/3 cup + 2 Tbsp tapioca flour
1/3 cup almond flour
1/3 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
dash of salt
For the apple topping:
1 peeled and thinly sliced apple
1 tsp honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp kerrygold butter
Heat a small sauce pot on medium heat, and add in the apple topping ingredients. Cook together until the apples are tender. This takes about 20 minutes, so they should be done once your pancakes are done cooking.
Heat a large pan on medium heat, and add a little cooking fat like coconut oil or kerrygold butter.
In a medium mixing bowl, add in the eggs, vanilla, coconut milk, almond milk and honey. Whisk together until everything is well combined.
Next, add in the flours, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Whisk this together carefully, until all the lumps are out.
Spoon 2 large scoops of batter onto your skillet, and sprinkle some of your chopped apple on top. After about 3 minutes, flip the pancake over and cook another 2-3 minutes. You will see the pancake rises and cooks through nicely.
Just a note: You CAN mix the chopped apple in your batter, but I tried that in the second batch, and they didn’t turn out as good.
Serve your pancakes with some of the apple topping. Recipe makes 6 pancakes.
