Paleo Pancakes

So, if you have noticed I follow what is called "The Paleo Diet." What that means is I eat meat, veggies, some fruit, nuts/seeds (I like to think of it as the food God gave us). I avoid dairy, grains, legumes, and sugar (as often as I can - gotta give my self cheat days or I would go nuts). I have several friends who eat this same way and we all share recipes with each other.
I LOVE sweet breakfast breads and I miss them dearly... Then I fixed this recipe one morning and it totally satisfies my craving for pancakes and they are healthy! I like to make fruit purees with blueberries or raspberries or strawberries (or a combo of all of them) for a sweet finishing touch.

Paleo Pancakes
2 eggs
1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
1/2 c. almond butter
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. vanilla

Combine all ingredients in bowl. Grease skillet with olive oil or coconut oil. Keep pancakes small and heat low to medium low - burn easily. Enjoy!
