Seed Pancakes

For Jaryn and everyone else who loves my craziness about health:)

Seed Pancakes

This combination of seeds guarantees a good intake and ratio of essential fats. 

Note: Using healthy fats to burn on (for energy) is better fuel than burning on sugars, which causes more fermentation and lactic acids. 

Make sure you start with very fresh organic raw seeds and nuts 
(order from Jaffe Bros. www.OrganicFruitsandNuts.com or call 1-760-749-1133 to order). 

Preparation: Measure out seeds and mix together: 
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds 
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds 
1/4 cup raw sesame seeds 
1/2 cup raw flax seeds 

In a coffee grinder, grind the seeds to flour in 1/3 cup batches. (or grind all at once in your Vita Mix blender to flour)

Measure out one cup and put in a bowl for the pancake recipe. Store the rest in fridge or freezer for another time.

1 cup seed flour 
1 cup millet or spelt flours, or a combination of other (quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, bean flour) 
1 & 1/2 tsp. baking soda 
1 tsp. Real Salt 
optional: 1/16th tsp. Stevia 
Soymilk (unsweetened) or water to make the right consistency (batter thickens after sitting a couple of minutes) 

Directions: Pour or spoon batter into a fry pan and cook in Olive, Coconut, or Grapeseed oil, on both sides. Buckwheat Pancakes

Variation: Use 2 cups of buckwheat (made from raw buckwheat kernels) for the flour and follow same directions for seed pancakes. 

Anything Pancakes Any combination of flours (seed, nut, grain, bean) follow same directions for seed pancakes. 

Pancake Whipped Topping 
1/2 carton soft tofu 
1/3 cup Thai coconut milk 
1/2 tsp. Frontier non-alcohol vanilla, 
1/8th tsp. white Stevia powder 
1 TB. fresh lemon juice
