B&B Recipies

Healthy Fats are good for us! For many years we have been given incorrect information about fats related to heart health. As a result we have been starving ourselves of this needed food. There are “bad” fats. These would include non organic processed oils, hydrogenated oils that have a long shelf life and high smoke point but are toxic to our cells. Cold pressed oils like olive oil, nut oils and some seed oils (not canola) and coconut oil are good for us! What you may not know is organic butter, ghee and lard from grass fed animals is also good for us.

These “good” fats are what our brain needs for fuel. Are cell walls contain fat and our immune functions travel on fat. Coconut oil helps to keep our intestines healthy. So enjoy your healthy fat!

Gluten Free Buckwheat Flour Pancakes

serves 4 adults, about 9-15 pancakes

1 cup buckwheat flour, buy as flour or make your own using raw buckwheat groats and a Blendtec blender (the cookbook that comes with the blender explains how to make flour).

  • ½ t salt
  • ¾ t double acting baking powder
  • ½ t baking soda
  • Sift these dry ingredients together in a bowl. I sift them 3 times.

 

Combine the following wet ingredients in another bowl;

  • 1 cup full fat cocoanut milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 T melted coconut oil
  • 1 t fresh squeezed lemon juice

Mix with a whisk until smooth.

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a rubber spatula.

Use only a few strokes to mix this together. Be careful when adding the liquid, the batter should be thick not runny. Do not add all of the liquid if the batter does not need it to moisten all of the flour. The batter should stand up on the spoon when dishing it into your hot skillet.

Have your skillet heated so that a drop of water sizzles when dropped into it.

Use coconut oil to grease the pan. Coconut oil does not get easily damaged by  heat and is good for your brain, heart and intestinal health.

Cook the pancakes until golden on one side then flip to cook the other side.

Serve right away. Enjoy!
