I have a post for you today friends. What better way to return than with a post for “Pancake Sunday”.
I have been under the weather, a smooth way of saying Laryngitis. For those of you who may know me in real life, taking a round of antibiotics is something I’d do everything to prevent. I’m the one who usually reaches for a ton of tea, and garlic based ““oxymels” . But I just couldn’t. I caved. Blame it on the fever, or body-aches, but this granola mom was getting her Z-pack, end of story. Fast forward 14 days later and here I am.
Getting sick is such a downer for me. It literally throws the proverbial wrench into my system. Hence the lack of interest in just about everything. But here I am, crawling out of my trench. Showing up. Because all you have to do is keep showing up.
So much has happened…
Let’s not forget.

Here’s the recipe for those Applepie Pancakes:
- 2 tbsp of plant butter melted (I use smart balance)
Make your flax egg here. Add
- 1 1/2 cup of plant based milk.
Your wet bowl is done.
Start a different bowl for this
- 1/2 cup of organic flour
- 1/2 cup of stone ground wheat
- 2 tbsp of baking powder
- 3 tbsp of coconut sugar
- 1 tbsp of hemp seeds
If you sift, sift now. Then combine with your wet bowl.
Laddle your batter onto a griddle, and cook just a couple minutes on each side. The trick here is to make sure you have a nice evenly hot griddle. Hot enough to make spongy pancakes, but not too hot it burns before it evenly cooks. You will end up with thin af pancakes should said griddle not be hot enough. Good luck!
Simultaneously, you can make your applepie compote.
- 2 granny smith apples peeled, cored and cubed
- 1 tbsp of smart balance butter
- 1 tsp of cocosugar
- Shakes of cinnamon
Saute in pan, till tender.
Serve liberally atop a pile of your fresh pancakes y viola – killing that apple pie craving at breakfast. Pancakes are life.
