Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

So it’s been awhile hasn’t it?  I always wonder what goes on when people quit posting to their blogs.  Nothing catastrophic has happened to me over the last couple years.  Life just got a little busier and blogging fell to the backseat.

I need to start posting recipes again though.  I make modifications to recipes and then I forget what I did.  It’s unfortunate.

I bought a couple bags of apples for super cheap a few weeks ago.  I’ve been trying to use them up before they go bad.  These pancakes were a tasty addition to my apple recipe file.  Lovely fall flavors.

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

1 c flour (I used 1/2 white, 1/2 whole wheat)

1 T packed brown sugar

1 t baking powder

1/4 t baking soda

1/4 t salt

1 t ground cinnamon

1 egg, beaten

1 c buttermilk

2 T melted butter

1 large apple, peeled, cored and coarsely grated

1.  Combine the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl.  Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and set aside.

2.  Combine the egg, buttermilk and melted butter in a small bowl.  Add the egg mixture all at once to the flour mixture.  Stir just until the flour is moistened.  The batter will be a little lumpy.

3.   Fold in the grated apple.  If the mixture is too thick you can add a couple tablespoons of additional buttermilk or regular milk to thin it out.

4.  Pour a 1/4 cup of batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or frying pan.  Flip when the edges are golden brown.

Sorry there’s no photo.  They were gobbled up before I thought to take a picture.

Muffins for Everyone!

swpotatomuffin 001 (Small)

I haven’t met very many wheat free baked goods that I’m crazy about. In fact, I don’t think I’ve met any. Until I made these muffins that is. These were so good, you couldn’t tell they were made with rice flour. Or that they didn’t have any milk or eggs in them. Hence, the “Muffins for Everyone!” title. Wheat free, vegan friendly, food lover friendly, allergy friendly muffins. Unless you’re allergic to rice or sweet potatoes. Or if you don’t like sweet potatoes. Maybe I should re-title: Muffins for Almost Everyone!

Anyway, I am very proud of these muffins, even though it’s not an original recipe. If my son didn’t eat them, I would have eaten them. All of them. Every last one.

FAF Butter(soy)milk Pancakes

My little guy is now 18 months old.  I still struggle to find stuff for him to eat.  He eats mostly fruits, veggies, beans and grains (other than wheat).  He’s not a huge fan of meat yet (not even bacon!).  Makua’s pediatrician is concerned because his weight is so low, but I feed him as much as he’ll eat.  At Makua’s 18 month check-up the doctor was scratching his head trying to figure out stuff for me to give Makua that would help him with his calorie in-take.  Cheese?  Nope.  Eggs?  Nope.  Carnation Instant Breakfast? Nope.  I’m trying to add more carbs into his diet, but he’s not a fan of bread.  He does, however, love muffins and pancakes. 


These pancakes actually aren’t bad considering they’re wheat free and don’t have eggs or dairy in them.  I make up a batch and freeze the leftovers which heat up great in the toaster oven.
