Spelt Pancakes

IMG_20160819_104333

So I have been making my Spelt pancakes for a while, trying to perfect them. Trying this ratio, trying that ratio and I believe I have finally found that perfect recipe.

Now, I have my own grinder that is an attachment to my Kitchen-Aid Mixer and I cannot stress enough the benefit of having a Mixer and your own grinder attachment! It has changed my world! I buy organic grains in bulk and when I want Bread, pancakes, cookies, muffins, or pasta, I have the ability to make everything as fresh and as healthy as it can be.

Please get one today if you don’t already have one. I don’t know what my husband and I would do without it!

So here it goes, my Spelt Pancakes!

Ingredients:

2 eggs

2tbsp honey or Succant

1 cup or whole organic milk or Almond milk (keep a little milk handy for later)

1tbs melted butter

salt – pinch

1tsp baking soda

1 3/4 cup of fresh ground spelt flour

Recipe:

In a mixing bowl with a spout for pouring, whisk ย eggs, honey, milk, and butter together until nicely combined.

Add your dry ingredient, salt, baking soda, and flour into your wet ingredient and stir.

It might be a little thick and will continue to get thick the longer it sits. So add a dash of milk until its a loose (not watery tho) batter.

Heat up your cast iron skillet and spray with coconut oil spray (if you don’t have one, get one, they are amazing) or whatever skillet you choose to about a 3 dial setting.

Pour batter onto skillet slowly, remember its a loose batter, it will keep expanding. When you see a good amount of bubbles formed, its ready to flip! The pancake will continue to rise, and once the bottom is a good golden brown, its done.

Repeat until batter is gone. For me, it makes about 8 good sized pancakes. Top with your choice of toppings or none at all!

I hope you enjoy them as much as my husband and I do!

Super Simple Sesame Noodles

IMG_20160801_125100

 

So I post a lot on Instagram but haven’t posted the actual recipes (not a good habit, since I am a blogger) but the only excuse I can give…(I’ll just write a post about it later)

Anyhoo….!

I LOVE asian food but more importantly I LOVE pasta! Now, I normally try to make my own pasta because I don’t like processed noodles but this recipe and specifically, this picture, is used with organic noodles made by Eden Organics. They have 2 types of noodles that I don’t mind buying if I’m too tired to make fresh noodles (we all have those days of being too tired to put in hours of effort on one meal) and that’s Kamut Grain Udon noodles (pictured above) and Spelt Grain Soba noodles.

This recipe is something I’ve been wanting to make for a long time but never got around to it. So when I finally did, it turned out so wonderful, I had to post it.

So here it goes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 box of Kamut udon noodles (Eden Organics brand)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 medium garlic cloves (chopped)
  • 1 tsp ginger powder or 2 tbsp minced ginger
  • ย 5 tsp rice vinegar
  • 4-5 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp hot red pepper powder
  • Optional: Lemongrass flakes or sesame seeds

 

First, Cook pasta according to instructions.

While pasta is cooking, in a bowl combine all other ingredients and mix.

Once pasta is done, rinse and dry. Add wet ingredients and mix. Top with optional lemongrass flakes (pictured above) or sesame seeds.

SIMPLE RIGHT?!

Enjoy!
