For the caramel sauce:

WHAT YOU DO
There are a few steps to get this just right.
To make the blueberry sauce:
Place the blueberries, water, and sugar in a saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring often, for 10 minutes or until the blueberries begin to break apart.
To make the caramel:
Melt the coconut oil and maple syrup together in a small pot over low heat. Whisk in the almond butter for about 30 seconds until fully incorporated and very smooth.
To make the pancakes:
- In a bowl, whisk together the yogurt, cottage cheese, eggs, and lemon juice.
- In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt. Fold the flour into the yogurt mixture, and stir well just until blended.
- Heat a large pan over medium-low heat. Coat it with a little coconut oil, and add the batter in large spoonfuls (about ¼ cup each).
- Flip the pancakes when the tops begin to bubble, around 2-3 minutes, and cook the other side until browned.
- Serve with the blueberry sauce and almond caramel.
- Makes around 12 pancakes (nutrition information is for 3 pancakes per serving and ¼ of the sauce and caramel).
