I’ve been having little miss Maya help me in the kitchen lately. Last night we made a pot roast in the pressure cooker and this morning PANCAKES!
I like to make tons of pancakes at once and then freeze them flat on cookie sheets. Once frozen I vacuum pack them and keep in the freezer. Then they are ready to grab and pop in the toaster for a quick healthy breakfast.
We made banana, apple cinnamon and blueberry pancakes.
We made them all from scratch. We even grinded our own flour from organic wheat berries. She had a blast learning ingredients and how things worked and came together to make batter.
We made a large bowl of the batter without the goodness. Then we split the batter into 3 smaller bowls then added the mashed bananas to one bowl, Apple and cinnamon to another and lastly the 3rd bowl with blueberries.
I have a few pans going at once then cooking time is cut in half!
Pancake Base – makes about 8-10
• 1 c whole wheat flour (or 3/4c wheat berries ground into flour)
• 3 tsp baking powder
• 1/2 tsp sea salt
• 1-3 tbl organic surgar
• 1/4 tsp nutmeg
• 1/2 tsp baking soda
• 1 egg or 1/4 c egg substitute
• 1 1/2 tsp coconut oil
• 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
• 1 c non-dairy milk
• 1-2 c of fruit of your choice
Blend all the dry ingredients in one bowl and wet into another. Combine dry and wet ingredients until batter is smooth. If too thick then add more liquid. If too wet add more flour.
Enjoy for many breakfasts!! 😀
