Apple Pancakes – rich in Omega 3s

What rituals do you enjoy on the weekend? One of our favourites is to enjoy nutrient dense Pancakes that are rich in Omega 3s.  We know Omega 3s are a beautiful investment in our brain health and also help to reduce levels of inflammation.

As with many of my recipes this one has evolved over the years.  And yes, our puppy Shelby, just loves these.

Shelby is part of our quality control team and always gets the first pancake.

This recipe is also featured in the ReKnew Countertop Cookbook.  I have a small stock of these cookbooks available for sale.   If you are interested send me a quick e-mail to sharon@nourishedexecutive.ca

I have tried experimenting with a number of flours and find the Spelt Flour or a great Gluten Free blend of flours works best.  These pancakes are sweetened with grated apple and maple syrup.

In the winter months to add the beautiful flavour of berries kissed by the sun, I will also add some local blackberries or blueberries that I froze in the summer.

For additional protein I also like to add Hemp Hearts with the berries.

We hope you enjoy this recipe and find that it nourishes you.
