Autoimmune Paleo Colombian-Style Arepas (seriously authentic!)

I created these Colombian-style arepas for the autoimmune protocol so that my roommates, husband, and I weren't stuck eating tostones every morning with breakfast as our sole starch option. My roommates are from Venezuela, so they know how to spot a good arepa! These turned out more like their neighbor Colombia's traditional arepas since they are flat, crispy, and perfect for topping with your favorite protein. Even when we all finish our Lenten AIP challenge, these are gonna remain a staple for us for breakfast! Hope you enjoy them as much as we have :)
