Sorry I’m a little behind on posting reviews! I still have a few more products to review for you guys from Influenster’s #Frosty VoxBox. I’ve been working on a little bit of a blog “revamp.” If you’re new to my blog, you won’t notice a difference, but if you’ve been visiting for a while, you’ll see the name change.
When I first started this blog, I didn’t intend on keeping up on it as much as I actually have. I planned on using my blog strictly for Influenster purposes. In June of 2014, I started my journey on a mainly vegetarian diet. Along with my life change, I began taking photos of the food I was preparing so that I was able to share them on Facebook and Instagram. In the beginning, the pictures were just that — pictures. Suddenly I had friends and family asking me for recipes and tips. I never imagined I would help to inspire others.
While I still blog about VoxBox’s when I’m lucky enough to receive one, I’m now blogging about much more. Recipes, beauty products, life, books, etc. I don’t plan on stopping there, either. I’m full of ideas and I’m hoping to get them all out there as soon as I can.
Now . . . who’s ready for a recipe?
If you saw my recent blog post “Bread addiction,” then you know how much I love sourdough. Now that I have a good sourdough starter going, I’ve been looking for others ways to use it. While browsing a forum I saw someone recommend using sourdough starter for pancakes or waffles. How did I not think of this before??
I love pancakes. I would make them every Sunday if my husband wasn’t so picky. (He doesn’t care for sweets. Especially for breakfast.) I really wish I wouldn’t have been so lazy when I whipped these up yesterday. My daughter has been running a fever for 3 days though, so it was hard to take my time with photos.
I’m so impressed with this recipe I created. Seriously, it’s amazing. You have to go try it. Now.
If you don’t have a sourdough starter, here is the recipe I followed. If you don’t want to try this one, you can use Google and Pinterest to search for another.
— You’ll need —
1/2 cup sourdough starter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup organic whole wheat flour
3/4 cup unsweetened organic coconut milk
1 tablespoon raw honey
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine sourdough starter, unsweetened organic coconut milk, all-purpose flour, and organic whole wheat flour. Let stand for 15 minutes. Mix the rest of the ingredients into your starter/flour mixture. Cook your pancakes just like you would regular pancakes. I use coconut oil in my skillet.
Yields 4-6 pancakes. I make mine in varying sizes. Larger pancakes for myself and tiny ones for my daughter 🙂 This would also make delicious waffles!
I like to eat my pancakes with a light drizzle of sugar free syrup and whatever fruit I’m craving. These are actually excellent plain.
My husband was my taste tester and although he doesn’t care for sweets when it comes to breakfast, he really enjoyed these!
These were a hit in my household and I hope that they can be a hit in yours soon 🙂
