Wow, we love pancakes.
My 3 year old, Asher, asks for a pancake every.single.morning.
I try to give my picky toddler some variety in life, but I have discovered that it’s often not worth the struggle to get him to eat what I want him to eat.
So I figured, “Fine, you can have a pancake every morning, but I’m going to make them healthy!”
Introducing, the easy einkorn pancake! Mama & picky toddler approved. 🙂
Einkorn flour, you can also sub for organic whole wheat. We cook and bake with einkorn flour because it is wheat in its original form. It is more nutritious (& delicious) than modern wheat and has not been hybridized which means if you are sensitive to gluten (like I am) your belly most likely will prefer this wheat! You can read more about einkorn here.
Pink himalayan salt-rich in minerals
Flaxseeds-rich in omega 3’s, lignans and antioxidants that help lower cancer risks
Coconut sugar-we use coconut sugar because it has a lower glycemic index than regular cane sugar (so less of that sugar spike!)
Optional pumpkin seeds on top-rich in minerals and anti-parasitic properties
