Paleo Tigernut Chocolate Pancakes with Blueberry Lemon sauce !
I’ve never met a person who doesn’t like breakfast.
As a matter of fact, it’s probably the major reason that motivates me (besides having to go to work) to wake up every single morning.
During weekends, I love having Sunday brunch with friends and family or taking time trying out breakfast recipes like the one we are making today.
During workweeks, I love reaping the benefits of having pre-made Paleo breakfasts that I can grab and take with me without worry.
I have to warn you that I’m not perfect.
Just because I follow a Paleo diet doesn’t mean than I am able to follow the rules 100% of the time.
And that’s the reason I especially appreciate breakfast recipes that are either easy and quick to put together or that can be made ahead of time.
I adopted this recipe from the Wheatless Kitchen. I omitted the sugar in the pancake mix and used a teaspoon of maple syrup in the blueberry sauce to give it a tiny bit of sweet touch.
I store the extras in the freezer and when I’m ready, just pop them in a toaster oven and enjoy with the pre-made blueberry lemon sauce. :))
