Fluffy Whole Grain Pancake Mix

Behold! If for some strange reason on this Saturday morning you happened to go on the internet (or the interwebs, as AJ archaically refers to it) in search of the perfect weekend breakfast, your wishes have been granted! Why the heck I’m here on a Saturday morning is another story, but here I am. Giving you pancakes! That you can make again! And again!

I LOVE having pancake mix around. There really is nothing like pancakes on a weekend morning, but going through the whole mixing the flours rigamarole is sometimes more than I can muster right after I’ve gotten out of bed. But when you’ve got a mix around, it’s only half the work! Mix up some flax seed, almond milk, and a bit of oil, then combine it with the dry mix you’ve prepared that morning the day before and you’re on the road to pancake land.

I’ve formulated these flapjacks (does anyone really call them that?) to be nice and fluffy and tall. Fluffy pancakes has been quite the battle for me because for some reason I have a very difficult time making a thick pancake batter. Every time I try I end up saying to myself “no way, that is WAY too thick and they are going to turn out like bricks!” So I add water and get flat, while tasty, pancakes. But I’m starting to get the hang of this thick-batter nonsense and am turning out some pretty darn good fluffies. Yes, that is the technical term.

Add a pat of {vegan if necessary} butter and a drizzle of pure maple syrup and you’ll be stoked it’s Saturday morning… as if you needed another reason. You’ll be super stoked next weekend when you realize there is still pancake mix left over, and you can do it all again! And then, depending on the size of your family, you might even be able to do it the next weekend, cause this recipe makes a heaping 6 cups of mix! AJ and I tend to eat a lot, so I usually make 2 cups of the mix. This could feed 3 people, so I throw the extras in the freezer for breakfast during the week. It’s awesome! And plus, they’re vegan –> way healthier than regular pancakes. And they’re mostly whole grain, because that’s how I roll.

Alright. Go make some pancakes. Go!

So it’s December 16 and I have purchased exactly two Christmas gifts. Two. I used to silently give my mom crap when she would “wait” until the last minute to purchase all her gifts, then she’d go on a gift-buying frenzy three days before Christmas. But now, it would appear, I have turned into my…

Cabbage, Potatoes & White Beans (v, gf)

I think I have a weird obsession with cabbage. If you check out my recipe index, you’ll notice there are four (4!) recipes that feature the vegetable. I don’t think there is any other vegetable that plays such a main role in my cooking. What’s so weird is that I don’t really even feel that…

They say the US is the melting pot of all cultures – that we eat everyone’s food, combine everyone’s culture, and use everyone’s traditions. And while that might be true – I bet you can find any type of food somewhere in the US – I also think it’s mostly a lie for the Standard American…
