Directions

In a medium bowl, whisk together coconut flour, baking powder, and salt. Add eggs, almond milk, and liquid stevia, and mix very well until smooth. Preheat a nonstick pan over medium heat and melt the coconut oil in the pan. Pour about 1/4 of the pancake batter into the pan for each pancake. Drop in blueberries or other mix-ins into the pancakes. When the bottom of the pancake is golden brown, flip and let the other side cook until golden brown.

I don’t have an exact recipe for Blueberry Chia Jam, but you basically heat frozen blueberries (~3/4 cup?) in a small saucepan with a small amount of water (1/4 cup?) and some chia seeds (1 Tbsp + 1 tsp?). Cook for 5-10 minutes, mashing blueberries as they soften. Add sweetener of choice if you want. Eventually, it will thicken and be jam-like. You can also make this with other frozen berries (add 1 tsp lemon juice for strawberry) but it may not look as pretty with the gray chia seeds.
