Today not only marks a new month, it is also pancake day around here. Jason is working from home today, and it is my day off, so I made us pancakes for breakfast.
While we don't eat too many traditional pancakes around here, I did come up with something special for today's breakfast.
¾ cup carrot juice*
1 cup flour (gluten free all purpose)
1 teaspoon chia or flax seed
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon xanthan gum
Juice carrots. Add carrot juice to blender with remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Preheat griddle to medium high - makes 12 - 15 medium sized pancakes. This makes such a pretty batter!
*No juicer? Sub store bought carrot juice or another flavor (apple)
maple cashew cream
1 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight
½ cup water
¼ cup maple syrup
Blend on highest power. Reduce water for a thicker result.
Serve with a glass of fresh carrot juice. Enjoy!
