"Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education." ~ Charlotte Mason

Tasty Tuesday: GF Power Packed Pancakes!

These pancakes are by far our very favorite!  This is a recipe I have come up with as I modified other various recipes to our liking.  It's a tried and true favorite.  We eat pancakes often at our house.  These ones are home made with nutritional flour and charge us all up for the mornings work.  I will often serve them with a fruit smoothie, making a nice complete breakfast for them. 


Place all dry ingredients into a bowl and set aside:

1 cup arrowroot flour OR tapioca flour
1 cup brown rice flour or sorghum flour
3/4 cup of oats or quinoa flakes (I grind mine up into a flour because my kids don't like the texture)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda

Blend together all wet ingredients:

2 tbsp of coconut oil OR butter OR any other light flavoured oil
2 eggs
1/2 cup of apple sauce (you can omit if you don't have this on hand)
2 cups of buttermilk OR milk OR almond milk

1.  Place wet ingredients in a stand mixer or hand mixer and blend.
2.  Pour in little bits of the flour mixture and continue to blend in until nice and smooth
3.  Pour about a 1/4 cup of mix into a hot skillet until the one side bubbles, then turn to finish baking.
4. Serve with maple syrup, a dallop of yogurt or kefir or even some jam!
