Paleo Apple Cinnamon Pancakes!

Happy Wednesday everyone! For those suffering from the mid-week slump, why not make some pancakes? These pancakes are not only full of flavor and mouthwatering, but they are packed with nutrients and are high in protein. They also contain ground flax, which is high in important Omega Fatty acids for your body. These pancakes will be an amazing start to your day and give you the energy that your body needs. My 10 month old loved these too! He devoured them faster than I did....

(paleo, vegetarian, gluten free)

  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
