Flaxseed

A super-food that has been around for around 6000 yrs, has a slightly nutty flavored seed that you can add to a lot of dishes. I’ll add it to fruit, salad, cereal…whatever. Kroger sells the Bob’s Red Mill Flax Seed for around $3 bucks. This super-food is packed with nutritional benefits;

·         High in fiber

·         Low in carbs

·         Balances hormones

·         Weight-loss aid

·         Digestive health

·         Lower cholesterol

·         Gluten Free

·         High in Antioxidants

Oat Pancakes

I have been buying pancake mixes for over 20 years, but I’m trying to get away ‘enriched bleached flour’. So, I went to the Bob’s Red Mill section at my local Kroger looking for an alternative and found Whole Grain Oat Flour (GF, Dairy Free). I used this recipe from Food Prepper and added some nice ripe plump blueberries. I substituted Turbinado Cane Sugar instead of regular white sugar. I noticed they take a little longer to flip, when the edge is not as shiny as the center, flip. They are denser, than the traditional pancakes. Overall, my 7 year old and I agreed they were delicious, especially topped with some Grade A Maple syrup.
