Move over oatmeal and Wheaties. A new breakfast champion has been crowned.
Need caffeine to get going? Can’t wait for lunch? Or struggle to get through the 2:00pm crash?
If so, I dare you to try this pancake recipe for a week and see if you don’t feel tons better throughout the day. Yep. Pancakes.
You in? Then, let’s get started.
First, gather your ingredients.
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup creamy almond butter (no-stir is easier)
2 eggs, preferably DHA enhanced
Let the cooking begin.
– Set your skillet to medium-heat, and let it warm up.
– Mix the eggs, almond butter, and applesauce until they form a consistent batter.
It should look like this:
You can also add a touch of cinnamon and/or vanilla extract if you’d like.
Start the pancakes.
– Put a small amount of coconut oil in your skillet. About half a teaspoon is usually perfect. Let it melt, and swirl it around the pan.
– Scoop a heaping tablespoon of batter into the pan.
Let them cook about 1-2 minutes on each side, flipping when you see bubbles appear.
I usually make about 8 per batch, 2 at a time in the skillet. That’s enough for two full servings.
For my breakfast, I eat 4 of the pancakes with a slice of Boar’s Head Honey Maple Turkey (1.5 oz.), along with my vitamins: fish oil, D3, and digestive enzymes.

It’s not what the government’s food pyramid recommends, I know.
Do the research. (You can start here.) Or just try it, and let the results speak for themselves. I promise you’ll feel like a champion.
Hey Kendra, this recipe sounds good escpecially for those of us who have to eat gluten-free foods. I’ll give it a try this week. Thanks!
Kendra, looks great. I love the pictures, very inviting. Is there an option for some type of syrup? (old habits are hard to break!)
Can’t wait for the next recipe!
@Angie – Yep, it’s perfect for gluten-free. Most everything I eat these days is.
@Pat – Honey is delicious with them. I started out topping them with it and coconut flakes, but I like them best by themselves. They have a natural sweetness that’s just perfect.
