We are a pancake family.  For me, there is little that satisfies me like a big ole’ plate of pancakes with syrup.  Pancakes are something I had to work really hard on figuring out how to make clean, because I grew up with bisquick pancakes.  However, I have found numerous fantastic clean recipes for pancakes, and we have them at least twice a week.  This morning I really REALLY wanted pancakes and didn’t have all the ingredients to make my usual recipe.. So This recipe was born. 🙂

Lick Your Lips Cornmeal Pancakes

1 c whole wheat flour

1 c cornmeal

1/2 t salt

2 t baking powder

2 eggs, beaten

approx. 2 c almond milk

Coconut oil for skillet

Mix dry ingredients together.  Add beaten eggs, and almond milk (The amount you use is dependent on the consistency of pancakes you prefer).  Grease skillet with coconut oil.  Over medium heat cook pancakes until lightly browned on both sides.  Top with raw honey or pure maple syrup.  Soo Tasty!  🙂
