Paleo Matcha Pancakes with Lemon Raspberry Compote

 I have been in the habit of having a cup of matcha before my coffee lately. It seems to help with my anxiety when I have too much caffine. Matcha contains an amino acid (L-theanine) binds to the caffeine and slows its absorption into the bloodstream. I was sitting thinking about what breakfast to make our current house guest on a Sunday morning and the idea struck me as I was gazing into my cup of matcha!
Not only would it make the pancakes pretty, contain the anxiety busting amino acids, it would also be pack a punch of antioxidants... and I knew a tart sweet raspberry or blue berry compote with just a splash of lemon would be just the thing to set off this green tea fueled breakfast... so now you know a little more about me! I am anxiety prone, I love the science behind what we consume, and I get ideas while looking into coffee cups!

Berry compote is an easy alternative to maple syrup. While🍁 maple syrup is technically still paleo, but it still gives me a sugar crash. This fiber in the berries help slow the blood sugar dump and crash.

Note 📝 these pancakes 🥞 are not whole30 but a great clean food freedom option!
