Gluten Free Yogurt Protein Pancakes

My youngest boy is obsessed with pancakes! He wants to eat them morning, noon and night! I wanted try something a little different.  I picked up some Maple Yogurt at my favorite farm Swallow Tail Creamery. I figured using yogurt instead of milk, would make a more dense and delicious pancakes…. and I was RIGHT!!! I also wanted add some protein to punch up the nutrition in them, so I add my favorite collagen product, Collagen Peptides from Vital Proteins. I wasn’t even finished cooking the 4th pancake before Elliot was screaming for more!!!

Yogurt Protein Pancakes.

Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose gluten free flour
1 scoop of collagen powder (I used Vital Proteins)
2 tablespoons sweetener (I would have used honey, but was out, so I used coconut sugar)
1 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups (16 ounces) plain yogurt or I used Maple yogurt from my FAVORITE local farm Swallow Tail Farm
1/4 cup water

Directions
In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, yogurt and water. Stir into dry ingredients and mix together.
Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot griddle coated with coconut oil. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until the second side is golden brown.

Add butter, maple syrup, your other favorite toppings,  and ENJOYED!!!

The Perfect Paleo Chicken Salad

Saturday morning I had to rush out the door for an appointment.  I didn’t have time to make my normal superfood smoothie for breakfast.  I had a half of an avocado and some chicken left over in the fridge.  So I got the idea to make a chicken salad.  I added the chicken, avocado, mixed in some lemon juice and sea salt…. it was DELICIOUS!  So I decided when I got home to make another batch and kick it up a notch!

It is my new favorite go to lunch/snack/dinner!

The Recipe:

1 avocado mashed
1/2 cup -1 cup of cooked chicken
The juice of 1/2 of a lemon
1/4 cup of finely chopped red onion
2 ribs of celery finely chopped
Sea salt to taste

Mixed together and enjoy.  Super simple, nutritious and delicious. Simple as that!!!!

Next time I might try adding in some different type of herb, like basil or maybe curry.  So many options!!!
