Maple Almond Pancakes

Maple Almond PancakesThe first pancakes I tried making after changing my diet were composed primarily of eggs and flax meal. They were so horrendous, they just about turned me off flax entirely. Instead, I hung on to the flax seeds, but went in a completely different direction with the pancakes. These are significantly tastier and they smell heavenly while they cook.

⅔ c almond butter (6 oz)
4 eggs
¼ c almond milk
2 t maple syrup
¼ c oil
¼ t salt
1½ t baking powder
½ t vanilla
  1. Beat ingredients together until smooth and well blended.
  2. Pour onto lightly greased griddle by scant ¼-cup measure.
  3. Cook over medium-low heat until the edges look dry (you may see bubbles in the center).
  4. Turn and cook on second side until evenly browned.
