Good day everyone! I have this awesome recipe to share with you today that is new and I just cooked it for the first time this morning. There’s also a new book to share. I hope you enjoy!
A few months ago I had to revert to a gluten-free diet once again which is not easy in my opinion. Once you get used to using wheat in everything, it becomes hard to not have those food items anymore. Well, I found this flour at Costco a few days ago and thought I’d give it a shot!
I used the recipe that’s right on the back of the bag which is also on their website with tons of other recipes. Here’s the original recipe.
Perfect Blueberry Pancakes
Note: This recipe must be made with blueberries to turn out right. For regular pancakes we recommend our Waffle & Pancake Mix.
1-1/4 cups Namaste Perfect Flour Blend
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1-1/4 cups milk, any kind
2 tbsp melted butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- Combine dry ingredients in medium bowl. Whisk together the liquid ingredients in large bowl.
- Add dry to liquid, combine well. Preheat griddle or pan to medium heat. Pour batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto sprayed griddle. As with all pancake batter, batter may thicken as it sits. Add more liquid as necessary. Sprinkle with blueberries.
- Cook until bubbles appear and bottom is golden brown. Flip and cook a minute or two longer.
-I ended up doubling the recipe. Here’s what I did.-
I added all the dry ingredients to a bowl and whisked it together. Then, I added all the wet ingredients and spices into my Vitamix and mixed it on low until incorporated. I used almond milk. I then added in the wet with the dry and whisked it up.
Cook on low heat a few minutes each side. We ended up with some weird shapes because the batter was so thick, even with added almond milk!
Once I flipped them, I realized it wasn’t going to be a big deal. They were cooking beautifully.
These were surprisingly good! My kids even loved them! We also had some all natural sausage links from Costco with the pancakes. It was a delicious breakfast.
This Week’s Book!
I started reading The Wife Between Us in the middle of the night last night. I ended up grabbing this one from Netgalley and need to catch up. This really intrigued me and a few Goodreads reviewers have rated it very highly.
The Wife Between Us
A novel of suspense that explores the complexities of marriage and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love.
When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
You will assume you are reading about a jealous wife and her obsession with her replacement.
You will assume you are reading about a woman about to enter a new marriage with the man she loves.
You will assume the first wife was a disaster and that the husband was well rid of her.
You will assume you know the motives, the history, the anatomy of the relationships.
Discover the next blockbuster novel of suspense, and get ready for the read of your life.
* So far, this is pretty good. The story is toggling back and forth between the soon to be new wife, and the previous wife. I really have a feeling this book is going to have some serious twists and turns! I hope to have this one finished by the weekend and a review up early next week. *
