    I don’t have a waffle maker :( (yes, I need one, I know…don’t ask why I haven’t bought one, I don’t have a good excuse). Would this work as pancakes? Possibly? I don’t know the rules there.

    I made these this morning for my kids and their friends and they came out awesome. My kids are paleo/GF and one of the kids is allergic to nuts. I needed a combo paleo/nut free recipe and these were so good I would definitely put them into my rotation. My only question is the batter turned green. Like literally a bright shade of green. I used Trader Joe’s sunbutter and followed the recipe to a T. What do you think caused this reaction? Weird. they still tasted fine and I am freezing the leftovers for later.

      I’m so glad to hear that!!! The green color happens a lot when baking with Sunbutter. Some sort of reaction between it and the baking soda! Totally harmless :)

Keep these stored next to the sausage found above and you’ll have a complete breakfast that’s ready in minutes. To reheat, just drop in the toaster for one cycle to thaw, and drop it in a second time to heat. […]
