Paleo Pancakes with Paleo Chocolate Pudding and Strawberries


Paleo Chocolate Pudding - Chocomole
1 ripe avocado
1 ripe banana
3 tbs raw cacao powder

Paleo Pancakes
2 eggs
1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp cinnamon

4-5 strawberries

1. Chocolate pudding
Put all the ingredients into a food processor and whizz together. Alternatively mash them by hand but this needs to be done well to avoid lumps of avocado and banana! 
2. Pancakes
Beat ingredients together and make pancakes as you would normally (use a little coconut oil to grease it if necessary). 
3. Stack pancakes in layers with chocomole and chopped strawberries.
