Celebrate National Pancake Day!

Standard

Last Friday was National Pancake Day and while restaurants like IHOP are celebrating by offering a free short stack of Buttermilk pancakes tomorrow (March 4, 2014), my husband, baby K and I have been celebrating over the last few days by making and trying a variety of my Paleo (grain-, gluten-, dairy-, sugar-free) pancake recipes!

I woke up on a very rainy Friday morning humming Jack Johnson’s Banana Pancakes:

Can’t you see that it’s just raining?
Ain’t no need to go outside…

Waking up too early
Maybe we can sleep in
Make you banana pancakes
Pretend like it’s the weekend now

And we could pretend it all the time
Can’t you see that it’s just raining?
There ain’t no need to go outside

And so our day began (besides the “maybe we can sleep in” idea…the idea of sleeping in is looooong goooone!). I decided to make a batch of my Almond Flour Strawberry & Blueberry Pancakes and I am so glad I did…they were a perfect, healthy way to start our morning! (recipe)

Saturday morning began with an adaption of Friday’s recipe (used raspberries in place of strawberries) and our family enjoyed Almond-Flour Raspberry & Blueberry Pancakes. These protein-filled pancakes fueled us up for a long, fun morning and afternoon of celebrating Dr. Seuss’ Birthday!

Sunday brought us to Mar Vista’s farmers market for breakfast and this Monday morning was all about devouring my husband’s new favorite, Coconut Flour Banana Blueberry Pancakes. (recipe) We were lucky enough to have a few left over (usually not one crumb is left with baby K around) and take one as a snack and one to share with baby M at the park later in the afternoon.

So, if you’re not able to head over for your free short stack of pancakes tomorrow (or you’re making an effort to eat healthier options), pretend that it’s the weekend now and give one of my recipes a try!

Oh! And for you chocolate lovers…Chocolate Chip Banana Mac Nut Pancakes recipe coming soon!

What are your favorite type of pancakes?
