8 Trim and Healthy Pancake recipes

Pancakes bring up so many warm and fuzzy feelings inside me. They just scream Saturday mornings with the family. Traditional pancake recipes are full of carbs and sugar (with fat too!). All these together do not help a mama stay Trim or Healthy.

Keep the traditions going with slow Saturday mornings and gather around the kitchen table with some yummy pancake goodness without the guilt or blood sugar swings. These will leave you satisfied and not crashing in an hour. read more

Chickpea Grainfree hotcakes

20120506-112612.jpgI made these Chickpea Hotcakes for Aidalyn last night. It was an experiment for sure! I think it is something that I can modify and come up with different recipes from.

1 can of chickpeas, drained (Mine were organic)

1/4 cup of milk

1 tablespoon of coconut oil

2 eggs

Optional: cinnamon, 1 tsp of vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon of honey

Directions:
