Gluten Free, Mostly Paleo Pancakes with Healthy Granola

000000I love granola but, in the middle of winter, a cold bowl of oats isn’t exactly what I crave when I’m waiting for my house to heat up in the morning.  One day I decided to make Paleo Pancakes because they’re so simple and I wanted something warm.  If you’ve never made them, they are basically  just an egg and a ripe banana mixed together with 2 tbsp of coconut flour and less than a tsp of baking powder.  Blend and  and poured onto a hot coated skillet.  I know they’re not pretty.  I never claimed to be a chef.  I’m just a “cook”! First Attempt at Gluten Free / Paleo Pancakes   Then I wanted to mix toasty, warm pancakes with some tasty granola.  The healthiest brand I’ve found so far is Viki’s Granola.  I met her at the huuuuge Expo West convention in Anaheim last year.  I loved that her granola was lower in sugar and carbs an higher in protein and fiber than many other brands I’ve tried.       So, I simply added a tablespoon of granola to the pancakes after I put them in the pan.  I guess I could have stirred them into the mix, but this way, I could put in different flavors 😉! Second attempt:  Not Quite Paleo Pancakes If you’re a Paleo purist and avoid all grains like the Zika virus, then you’ll have to stick with the less tasty and crunchy version.  If you enjoy whole grains like I do, mix your batter up: 1 ripe banana 1 egg 2 – 3 tbsps coconut flour 1  tsp baking powder...
