Strawberry Pancake Mini Muffins

Who doesn’t love breakfast food? Especially pancakes! 

This recipe uses Birch Benders Paleo Pancake Mix— a grain-free pancake mix that’s much better for you than traditional wheat-based mixes (i.e. Aunt Jemima, Bisquick, etc.). It’s made with cassava starch, coconut flour, and almond flour. Cassava is a nutty-flavored, starchy root vegetable native to South America, which has a lower glycemic response compared to grain-based flours. 

Instead of drowning them in maple syrup, I like to take a gentler approach and serve them with a couple tablespoons of nut butter (almond, peanut, sunflower, or cashew) mixed with a teaspoon of pure maple syrup. If necessary, mix with a little unsweetened almond or coconut milk to thin it out a bit. Pair with an egg and breakfast is served!

  3. Bake for 12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Remove and serve with a tablespoon or two of fresh ground almond, peanut, cashew or sunflower butter.
