It's time for maple syrup therapy! Stat!!!
Today is a beautiful, blustery, blizzardy day...and buses are cancelled. No big deal except Friday was a p.a. day, and we had a busy weekend and I had counted on having today to recoup....alone! I have some whacko cold that is running into it's fourth week, and I just needed a "sick day" to sit around in warm and comfy clothes, drink a lot of tea, read something good, and attempt to give my body a chance to get better. No such luck.
So, in lieu of having some quiet time, I think it just needs to be pancake time instead.
These pancakes happened a few weeks back when I suddenly had the urge to eat pancakes, which I haven't had in a while, paleo or otherwise. I wasn't interested in wasting my time making some pancake that would end up flat, I needed me some big, fluffy pancakes!
So, by using a mix of flours, baking soda activated by lemon juice, and a pinch of love (haha, I'm just kidding), these lovely dears came to be!
Paleo Chocolate Monkey Pancakes (for one)
I forgot the lemon juice in that collage above....oh well...
It seems like a lots of ingredients, but it honestly comes together in just a few minutes, and is worth every tiny effort!
I suspect you could also make these with an avocado in place of the banana (perhaps just a half an avocado?), or maybe even some baked sweet potato (maybe 2-3 tablespoons?). I haven't tried either, but I could see it working well.
You don't taste the banana really at all in these (in my opinion), so if you're worried about that, stop it. :) I only really called them "chocolate monkey" so you would have an idea before reading the recipe that bananas were involved. No surprises!
So, whatever this Monday has for you-make the best of it!!! Either with the people you're with, or the place you're in, and if nothing else, with the ingredients you have on hand to make a yummy treat! :)

When I saw the title of this blog, I thought the pancakes would have monkeys in them.
