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!

Here’s a super easy recipe that combines protein and a good fat with a ton of flavor.  It’s a tasty alternative to normal turkey burgers which I love, but can be a little bland at times.

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  • First step is to make my Easy Paleo Guacamole, one avocado is enough to cook for two people.
  • Make patties from ground turkey burger (about 1.5 oz each)
  • Place about 1 tablespoon of guacamole in the center of one patty
  • Put another patty on top and seal around the edges
  • Heat a skillet to a medium heat and cook until browned (about 5-7 minutes per side)

Easy Paleo Guacamole

15 Jul

Aside from my Honey Mustard, this guacamole recipe is the easiest recipe I’ve made!  I got this quick and delicious idea from my little sister’s boyfriend who makes it at all of our cookouts.  Since I don’t eat tortilla chips anymore, I make this more as a dipping sauce for fish or chicken or I dip baby carrots in it.  It’s so yummy, I could just eat it with a spoon!

The measurements for this are based on my personal preference and making enough for just me.  You can make it for a party, just increase the amount of everything. If you aren’t sure how to cut and pit an avocado, here’s a short video to walk you through it.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • juice of 1 lime
  • fresh cilantro (amount is based on preference, I use a handful or so)
  • sea salt

Instructions:

  • Cut avocado and scoop into a bowl
  • Use 2 tablespoons to mash the avocado halves (I leave mine a little chunky but you can make it whatever consistency you prefer)
  • Finely chop the fresh cilantro and add to the avocado
  • Add the fresh squeezed lime juice
  • Finally, add the sea salt.  I use about 1/2-1 teaspoon but again use how much you like
  • ENJOY!

Honey Mustard

Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

Now this is super easy!

Image

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon raw honey, melted
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (I use Grey Poupon)

Instructions:

Mix the mustard and the melted raw honey together.  Yup, that’s all!

Depending on how much you’re looking to make will depend on the measurements.  What’s on the plate in the picture is all I made at the time so that’s what you’ll see here.  If you want to make more, just double or triple the amounts.
