Grain-free, Vegan, Paleo Pancakes

20200617_095939Made with almond flour, these pancakes deliver more protein that the usual grain-based breakfast treat.  Tapioca starch bind the almond flour, keeping the pancakes from crumbling.  They need to cook for a bit longer, and the result is pleasantly crispy with delicious depth of flavor.


Sweetened with applesauce, vanilla and a touch of maple syrup, they are sturdy enough to take with you out the door, and no additional toppings are necessary.  Although a smear of peanut butter or almond butter would be a delicious, protein-rich addition.
