Coconut & Almond Flour Pancakes

Today's Variation:  Coconut/Almond Flour Waffles
Coconut Flour Pancakes
2 eggs
2 T virgin coconut oil or butter, melted
2 T milk (can use coconut milk)
1 t sugar (we used Zsweet instead)
1/4 t salt
1 T sifted Coconut Flour
2 T Almond Flour
1/2 t baking powder (we used this substitution)
capful of Vanilla

Blend together eggs, oil, milk, sugar & salt.  Combine coconut & almond flours with baking powder & thoroughly mix into batter.  Heat 1 T coconut oil in a skillet (we've found about 375 on an electric skillet works well for pancakes.  Spoon batter onto hot skillet making pancakes about 2 & 1/2 to 3" in diameter.  Batter will be thick, but will flatten out when cooking.  Makes about 8 pancakes.

***We quadrupled the recipe and it made us several yummy waffles.

Today we are having Strawberry or Raspberry Freezer jam on it:
Strawberry or Raspberry Freezer Jam
1 16oz bag of strawberries or Strawberries took a hand blender to them
Agave Syrup to taste sweetness
Ultra Gel Modified Food Starch (thickener), as we didn't want to use Pectin as we didn't think it would set up right without sugar.
