blueberry almond pancakes

so, sometimes i like to eat pancakes. but, since I am trying to stay "in the core" which means no grains outside of a workout window, you have to accomodate how you make your pancakes.

so, try this:
handful of almonds
some flax seeds.
2 eggs.
milk (i used vanilla almond milk this morning)

grind up the almonds and flax seed into a fairly fine powder (my coffee grinder does not serve as coffee grinder all the time, i grind things like this in it all the time!!!). Beat eggs and some milk into a bowl, and add the powder. Add more milk, or water into the mix if you don't like your pancakes thick. Whip it up real well. add some berries in (i used blueberries this morning!)

cook on both sides (slightly above medium heat) until sides are hard. unlike normal pancakes where you will normally have lots of bubbles coming through, there will not be too many here. Just be aware so you don't burn!

top with cinnamon, and enjoy! top with what you like!
I coupled this with a cup of chocolate soy milk this morning, and the meal served as my post long ride breakfast :) YUMMMM!
