At the weekends the kids like nothing better than to have what they call a “big breakfast” which always includes pancakes.
I’m more than happy to oblige especially since I met Amy Ruth and bought her amazing baking mix made from quinoa, teff, brown rice, flax and chia.
No gluten or sugar and the pancakes tastes delish!
Sure, I could mix up these ingredients myself and save some dosh, but let’s face it, weekends should be stress free and I was more than happy Ruth had mixed it up for me as I staggered up slightly hungover on Sunday morning!
Both my kids are in school now and I know freshly baked bread and white pasta are staples at lunchtime, especially for my picky 9 year old, so at home I try to avoid wheat and gluten as much as I possibly can in order to keep their diets healthy.
Whisk these ingredienses together for a healthy weekend treat:
I use 1 1/2 cup of Amy Ruth’s healthy baking mix
I tablespoon of Maca Powder (good for libido, PMS and vitality)
For flavour I use: 1/4 teaspoon of raw vanilla, a tiny bit of Stevia for sweetness and a dash of organic cinnamon.
2 eggs (or use egg substitute)
2 cups of organic Rice Milk
3 tablespoons of raw coconut oil (melt and mix with the wet ingredients)
