Banana Hazelnut Pancakes (Grain & Dairy Free)

banana, hazelnut, pancakes, grain free, gluten free, paleo, dairy free, breakfast

It’s finally Spring here in the mountains! It was a glorious, sunny 70 degree day today. All of us soaked in the much welcomed sunshine after a long winter. This weekend was just what the four of us needed. We went to a BBQ, planted seeds and flowers in the garden, hiked in the mountains, flew my daughters new kite…does tomorrow really have to be Monday?!

This is a new pancake recipe our family enjoyed this weekend. Hazelnut meal is a fun flour to play around with and has a unique and delicious flavor. I highly recommend some fresh jam or organic maple syrup on top of these pancakes…hits the spot!

Here’s to a fabulous coming week and a not so crazy Monday!
