Aubrie and Ava love these wonderfully light and fluffy pancakes. Usually the night before we talk about what they’d like for breakfast and in having these conversations lets me prepare ahead of time. One of the great things about this recipe is that you can make the full batch and store the extra batter in the fridge and make them when you want them or cook extra pancakes and just eat them as snacks or another meal later. The benefits of soaked vs. traditional is really for two main reasons….reducing the phytic acid that makes it more nutritious and easier to digest, two important reasons. I use a blender for this, but if you don’t happen to have one, mix up in a bowl and cover overnight. I’m sure you’ll enjoy these as much as we do. Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. In a blender or a bowl, mix up the flour, water and kefir together for a couple of minutes, to thoroughly incorporate. Cover and let it sit overnight at room temp.
  2. The next morning, add to your soaked mixture; egg, baking powder, baking soda, salt and vanilla.
  3. Blend or mix all together until nice and smooth.
  4. You can add your favorite fruit or seasonings at this point and mix in by hand. We like blueberries when in season or you could add bananas or pumpkin and cinnamon or just plain and really it’s about making what you like.
  5. Add coconut oil to a hot cast iron skillet and pour in batter to make the size pancakes you like.
  6. Add butter and syrup and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

This recipe makes quite a bit and keeps well in a glass jar in the refrigerator so it's ready when you decide pancakes sound great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Fiber: Sexy isn't it? We all need it, but most don't get the recommended 35g per day that our body needs to run optimally. Here’s a great way to start your day that has approx. 25g of fiber and about that much protein too. It fills you up, it helps make your elimination cycle regular and it actually tastes good. In my opinion, these are all bonuses. Here’s the slightly adapted version, as originally shared by Yuri Elkaim.

Instructions
  1. In a bowl, mix the above together. Pour on the liquid, stir, and let it set for 2-3 minutes to allow the chia seeds to soak up the liquid. I usually use about a cup of Kefir. Great way to start your day! Enjoy!
  2. This provides approx. 25 gm. Fiber, 25 gm. Protein (if using kefir) and lots of Omega 3 benefit as well as inflammation fighters.
  3. (35g of fiber/day needed for optimal health)

A friend introduced me to a similar recipe and of course I had to tweak it a little. It came out really tasty. This makes a great post-workout protein shake, mix it before your workout and it will be ready when you are done...ENJOY!!!

  1. Add all the ingredients together, stir and let sit for approx. 1 hour. This allows the bee pollen and the chia seeds to soften. If you like, you may add a little maple syrup to sweeten a little.
