So it starts! By popular demand (ok really just my mom) I am starting this food blog. I have loved to cook since I can remember and have always tried to eat healthy. Many people think that eating healthy is boring and overwhelming. This is why you are reading my blog, because I want you to find that it can be yummy, satisfying, and simple... okay sometimes it requires some planning and work, but all good things do. FYI, the food Critic I refer to is my great Husband who will try everything I make.

Cinnamon Spelt Pancakes

As much as I love oatmeal with all the fancy things I put on it, I really do get sick of eating it. Pancakes usually leave me feeling blah after I eat them, but not anymore! I felt great after I had some of these wheat free pancakes. They were really easy to make and get this..... my KIDS even loved them. I was shocked! I also made some simple coconut syrup to go along with the pancakes that I thought added the perfect touch to the meal.

Cinnamon Spelt Pancakes

2 c spelt flour

2 t baking powder

1/2 t baking soda

1 t cinnamon

dash of cloves

dash of nutmeg

1/4 t salt

1 T chia seeds soaked in 3 T H2O

2 T organic sugar of 1 T agave

1 C almond milk

1 t vanilla

1 T olive oil

1. Measure out 1 T of chia seeds and mix with 3 T of H2O. Set aside while you continue to measure out the rest of your ingredients. Chia seeds act as a binder in foods when you are not using eggs.

2. Measure and mix all of your dry ingredients together

3. add almond milk, oil, vanilla, chia seeds to your dry ingredients. mix well.

Coconut Maple Syrup

2 T coconut milk

4 T pure maple syrup

When I served these to my kids and food critic I sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on top. It reminded me of eating hot churros because they were a little crisp on the outside and warm and soft on the inside. Yummy! I also think adding some sliced bananas would be divine on top, I just didn't have any.

  3. Our first trial of Cindy's food and it kind of turned out! They were so good! I sure miss lunches at your place, but I'm moving forward to try more stuff on my own. Thanks for making this blog! You're my food hero!
