Pancake Topping Recipe

OK if that picture makes your mouth water then your taste buds are in TUNE! Because this Pear Topping is DEE-LISH! And here's the best part they are SO easy!! Doesn't look like it right? Oh but it is!

Here's the secret: Use CANNED pears! GASP! I know. Canned pears. Okay now that we are past that. Pour a little bit of REAL Maple Syrup in a frying pan and cook the pears just until well coated and heated. Also sprinkle a little bit of cinnamon on them right before you are done. Then slap em on your favorite pancake recipe and you are headed for taste bud heaven!
(Also if you don't happen to have real maple syrup in your cupboards you can substitute molasses just as easily and they both taste great!)

No I can't leave so soon because I HAVE to share with you this COMPLETELY HEALTHY Anti-Inflammatory Pancake recipe of mine that truly tastes delicious! I know completely healthy and delicious don't go together in most people's minds but these are truly good. (If you don't agree apparently we have opposite tastes!)

Almond Flour Pancakes

2/3 Cup whole-curd cottage cheese
3 large eggs
1/2 Cup Bob Red Mill's Almond Flour
1/8 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/8 Tsp. Ground Cinnamon
2 TBLS Oat Bran

1. In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients except oat bran. Beat until smooth.
2.Heat a nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet.
3. For each pancake, pour about 3 TBLS of batter onto the griddle or skillet.
4. Sprinkle each pancake with oat bran (I sprinkle the batter side as the first side cooks - and go LIGHTLY or you will end up tasting it)
5. Cook pancakes 1 to 2 minutes until puffed and dry around edges. Turn and cook other side until golden brown.
