Wheat-Free, Dairy-Free Pancakes

About three months ago I was diagnosed with Leaky Gut Syndrome and was taken off of a HUGE list of foods that my body is sensitive to.  Sadly, wheat is on that list as well as all dairy.  Hopefully my gut will heal soon and I can reintroduce some of the “illegal” foods back into my diet in moderation.  For now though, I have to find ways to make do without them.  My naturopathic doctor gave me this pancake recipe when I told her I was struggling with breakfast choices and it has been very helpful.

2 Tbsp. coconut flour
1 to 1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup ground flax seed
5-6 eggs
2 Tbsp. melted coconut oil or ghee
1 Tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 banana or 1 apple or 1 cup applesauce*

1.  Combine the flours and flax seed.  Combine the wet ingredients and add to the dry.
2.  Sprinkle the baking soda onto the mixture and stir to combine.
3.  Add the fruit and stir to combine.
4.  Drop by 1/4-cupfuls onto hot griddle (grease if necessary) and cook on both sides until done.

Makes about a dozen pancakes.
*Mash banana.  Finely dice apple.
