Really? Another pancake recipe?
Searching this divine food in google produces over 52 million results and the search term “pancake recipe” provides 767,000 results. Do we really need another one?
Well, the thing is that I’m not much of a recipe person and to be honest, I don’t pay much attention to what other people are doing. Sure it’s sometimes great to go through fellow blogger’s articles, and read food magazines and books. Every time I do, I get tons of inspiration and I start jumping on one leg out of the pure excitement over some awesome culinary creations. However, when it comes to cooking, I put recipes aside and go creative. And that is exactly what happened today with the pancakes. I wasn’t trying to create yet another pancake recipe, so that I could declare how these pancakes are the best and the fluffiest in the whole world. I was simply craving for some pancakes (thanks to my girlfriend, who has caused this addiction on me) and so I made some. It just happened that the only ingredients I had available at my sisters place, where I’m currently visiting, were some gluten free flour mix, eggs and oat milk. Something like that could hardly stop me.
First I asked myself, “can I do pancakes from these ingredients?” and before the end of that thought I already knew the answer, “why don’t you try and find out.”
So, I grabbed a bowl and prepared the batter…
1/2 cup (1,2 dl) LUMINA Gluten Free Wholegrain Bread Mix
1 cup (2,5 dl) Oat Milk
pinch of salt
The pancakes turned out pretty darn good and so I placed a few on a plate, sliced a banana and topped the creation with cacao nibs, pollen granules and organic maple syrup.
LUMINA Gluten Free Wholegrain Bread Mix contains buckwheat flour, wholegrain rice flour, roasted flaxseeds, sugar, potato flakes, psyllium husk, cacao powder, and xanthan gum.
Lumina products are made by Linseed Oy, Finland, and are naturally gluten free. Hopefully these products will be soon available outside of Finland.
