Paleo Apple Banana Pancakes with Apple Cider Syrup

7 Dec

You may have noticed I don’t post a whole lot of breakfast recipes.  Truth is, I’m not a huge breakfast person.  Ok, that’s not entirely true, I’m not a morning person (gasp! I know that’s shocking)!  However, some of us in my family have a monthly pancake breakfast in honor of a family friend who passed away very young while serving our country.  We have been doing the breakfast each month for about 7 years now and never repeat a flavor.  While this is one of my favorite days each month, since going paleo this year, it’s been difficult to resist these amazing pancakes (although I have definitely resisted). Last month, I decided to make some paleo pancakes and bring them with me.  After about 4 failed attempts, cursing and throwing batter away, they came out awesome, I hope you enjoy them!
