Perfect Paleo Pancakes

paleo pancakes, breakfast, grain free, gluten free pancakes, almond flour, healthy pancakes

I am a pancake experimenter.  You name it, I've probably tried it.  My kids love pancakes and I love trying to make them as nutritious and protein filled as possible.  It's a fun little challenge that has ended in failure several times.  However, I recently discovered tapioca starch and that has made a big difference.  It helps hold the shape nicely and gives the pancakes a little more of a crisp, or textured, outside.  These pancakes are delicious, simple, and filling.  They are thin but not flat and dense.  And one recipe with a side of eggs filled up our family of five!  Even Mom got some. :)
