Gluten Free Pancakes (from a mix)

Sometimes you need pancakes.  Yes you can eat your breakfast cereals, smoothies, eggs BUT there is a NEED for pancakes.  Now finding a good gluten free pancake recipe is tricky.  But I am happy to say that I have found a mix that I am giving an A+ to – the WafflePancake/Crepe mix was from Namaste  I added  coconut oil, eggs and  Silk coconut milk to the mix and I was ready to make some flap jacks.

Also if you scroll down, you’ll see our before and after picture of our new kitchen.  For 25 years I had a larger kitchen and thought I would miss having the space and there are moments I do.  But for the most part, I am enjoying the efficiency of the smaller space.  Now back to the pancakes.

I’ve had my blue mixing bowls forever but these are very similar.  This is the griddle I have and love.  That little guy peeking in the background is the cutest tea bag infuser called Mr Tea

These pancakes have a tender texture.  I like to make mine in 4″ circles and serve them several ways.  Here are a few ideas..(1)  A little grass fed butter (Kerrigold brand), Sunflower Seed Butter, and a drizzle of pure maple syrup or (2) Organic berries – sliced and mixed with a little organic syrup to release the juices, sweetened organic whipped cream – a delicious dessert.

Hydro Flask

hydro flask I posted a picture on Facebook highlighting my hydro flask (my favorite water bottle) and received requests to share the products.  I have the 32 oz which comes in a variety of colors and different sizes but I like this size because I don’t need to keep refilling as often.  I live in Arizona and the summers are brutal.  I throw some ice cubes in, water or organic mint tea with a splash of organic juice and even if I leave the bottle in the car for hours on a hot summer day; it is still ice cold.  The flask comes with a lid but I purchased the straw attachment which makes drinking easier.

There was only one problem – the flask didn’t fit in my car’s cup holder which meant I placed it in a small box on my driver’s side seat so it didn’t bounce around.  But in early July, I discovered that a hydro flask cup insert for the car had been created.  I ordered it and looked forward to it arriving.  When it first arrived I was disappointed because I didn’t think it was going to fit and accidentally dropped it, only to discover that there are layers on the bottom of the insert that can be removed.  Once I took off a layer, it fit wonderfully.  It also comes with a velcro piece that can be inserted in the inside part of the holder to create a more secure fit.

Love this product.
