Super Easy Pancakes

My kids absolutely love pancakes and when I found this recipe I was beyond excited because they’re super easy and made from scratch so I know exactly what goes into the batter!

My son Jacob and loves helping me to prepare them and he’s quite a professional by now at making them 🙂


These pancakes a very fluffy, in a good way. The edges are not crispy. They are simply amazing!

Ingredients:
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup of milk
1 large egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (we use coconut oil)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup of blueberries (optional)

Directions:
1. In medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In small bowl, whisk milk, egg, oil, and vanilla until well combined.
2. Add milk mixture to flour mixture and stir gently with rubber spatula until just combined (Batter should remain lumpy). Let it sit for 10 minutes before cooking.
3. Spray 12 inch nonstick skillet with vegetable oil and heat over medium heat until hot, about one minute.
4. Use 1/4 cup dry measuring cup to scoop 1/4 cup butter in the skillet. Repeat two more times, living space between mounds of better (you want 3 pancakes To cook up separate from one another)
5. Sprinkle each pancake with 1 tablespoon blueberries. Cook until bubbles and surface begin to pop, 2 to 3 minutes.
6. You spatula to flip pancakes and cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer pancakes to plate. Repeat with remaining better in two more batches.

You can also change it up by adding chocolate chips, chopped nuts, shredded coconut, sliced bananas, or raspberries instead of the blueberries use 1 tbs of add-ins for a pancake. Have fun and try your own combinations!!


Enjoy!!!

How to make Crepes

My boys LOVE Crepes! They can eat them everyday if I let them, so I found this easy recipe that I have been using for couple years now 😉 It’s quick and easy to make. Here are the ingredients:

2 Eggs

3/4 cup Milk (I use almond milk but any milk will work)

1/2 cup Water

1 cup Flour

3 tbs. melted Butter

2 1/2 tbs. Sugar

1 tsp. Vanilla

2 drops of Young Living Orange Vitality Oil (optional and make sure it’s Young Living ONLY, you can get them here).

Ningxia Berry Syrup or Maple Syrup

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the first 3 ingredients. Gradually add in the flour and butter, stirring to combine. Add the sugar and vanilla and tangerine oil, mix until smooth.

Heat a lightly buttered griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour about 1/4 a cup of the batter onto the griddle. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.

Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side.

Pour about 1 tbs of the syrup and spread it around and roll it up! So EASY and quick!
