Peanut Butter Pancakes

I created this pancake recipe with my nephew, Brad, in mind. He is trying to stop eating gluten, and he needs to eat a lot of healthy proteins and fats because he is very active.


What you need:
 6 eggs
 1/2 cup coconut flour
 1/2 cup applesauce
 1/4 cup peanut butter
 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
 1/4 tsp. sea salt
 1/2 tsp. baking soda
 1 tsp. vanilla
 Butter
 Maple Syrup

Equipment:
 Vita-Mix
 Frying pan or pancake griddle

What you do:
 Blend first eight ingredients in Vita-Mix
 Heat butter on frying pan
 Add batter (smaller pancakes are much easier to turn)
 Flip when browned on one side
 Enjoy topped with butter and maple syrup!
 Makes about 16 pancakes

Ingredients from Trader Joe's: organic eggs, organic apple sauce, organic peanut butter, organic coconut oil, organic or Kerrygold butter, organic grade B maple syrup
Ingredients from iHerb: organic coconut flour, Real Salt or Celtic sea salt, Bob's Red Mill pure baking soda, organic vanilla
