November 29, 2011 by Leanne Vogel September 13, 2017Kevin and I love Christmas. Each year around this time, we begin our gingerbread house building plans, decorate the tree, and we even go as far as planning exactly what we’ll make together for breakfast on Christmas morning. When you read together, instead read – Kevin playing with the dogs while I make breakfast. Team effort. Last year, we had Cinnamon Waffles with Cream Cheese Frosting… The year before, French toast. And the year before that it was a huge omelet, if I remember correctly. But this year there have been no gingerbread house plans, no tree decorating, or table planning. Because… We won’t be here! Instead, we’ll be here… [source] enjoying lots of this… [source] and finally getting to scuba dive in something other than a pool, yipee! But you didn’t think I’d leave without sharing what we would have enjoyed on Christmas morning had we stayed in the country, did ya? These pancakes are the ultimate Christmas morning food. They’re pretty, filling, grain-free, easy to whip up, and make the house smell like cinnamon buns without all of the hard work! They’re jam-packed with protein, too. I find that if I don’t begin the morning with protein I never ever get enough throughout the day. That, and it usually leads to a constant hunger feeling, deep in my stomach; a pattern I discovered from tracking my daily eats, feelings and symptoms in my food journal! I started trialing these pancakes right around the time we got sick of eating Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Pancakes, before I switched primarily to a paleo diet, and before we knew we were going away for the holidays. So I guess what I’m trying to say is – they’re good, we enjoyed them awhile ago, and this recipe was totally worth holding on to until December. Okay, well November 29th, but who’s counting? I bet you could make the pancakes paleo by making them with almond flour, but I haven’t gotten to it… yet.
