Protein pancakes with an apple-date combo and spiced with a cinnamon-molasses greek yogurt drizzle…HEAVEN! These were thick and fluffy and sweet and yummy and I could go on forever. I used roasted almond flour in the batter and it added a smokey undertone that complimented the sweetness of the apples and dates perfectly 👌 Try these and let me know what you think.

**To make homemade oat and almond flour-blend ingredients in coffee grinder. For this recipe I used old fashioned oats and dry roasted almonds.
**Trick for almond flour-to ensure all almonds are ground before it turns into almond butter (it will if you grind it too long) shake the coffee grinder while it is grinding. You will get an even blend this way and not have almond chunks!
