Hello friends! Did you miss me yesterday? I was celebrating Mother’s Day with my fam a day early since I’m on call for the next 24 hours…nothing like dropping everything and having to high-tail it to the hospital IF I get that call! I’ll be posting a little MD recap tomorrow to show you guys all the tasty eats! I was definitely reminded of where my foodie genes come from that’s for sure!
For this Pancake Sunday, I couldn’t help but have love on the brain. Why is it that anytime “love” is associated with a food, strawberries are the first thing to come to mind? Am I the only one who does this??
Anywho, these babies turned out to be some of the BEST pancakes ever (I’m sure I’ve said that like a dozen times at least…but seriously, you HAVE to try this recipe)!
Strawberry-Almond Buckwheat Pancakes: (serves 1)
- 1/4 cup buckwheat flour (ground from raw buckwheat groats)
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- 1 egg white (I used 3 tablespoons liquid egg whites)
- 1/4 cup diced strawberries
I topped my strawberry
shortcakes pancakes with “whipped cream” (Greek yogurt sweetened with a couple of drops of stevia), slivered almonds, unsweetened coconut…because coconut goes good on EVERYTHING, and a bit of maple syrup (the real stuff…don’t skimp!)
The warm bits of gooey strawberry scattered throughout with the hint of almond extract was the perfect combo for my plate-o-love!
Oh yeah, if I was a real mama (sadly, the adoption of a feline doesn’t qualify me for tax deductions), this is what I’d want to wake up to the morning of Mother’s Day. Hmm, if only Tiger had opposable thumbs…
How are you/did you show your mama love for Mother’s Day this year?
