📌National Maple Syrup Day
Pan American Aviation Day
Wright Brothers Day
✔️Happy Maple Syrup Day!
🍁🍶🇨🇦 (I made a different post earlier today but am posting this for those who requested it.)
Maple syrup is a syrup usually made from the xylem sap of sugar maple, red maple, or black maple trees. It was first collected and used by the indigenous peoples of North America, and the practice was adopted by European settlers, who gradually refined production methods. The Canadian province of Quebec is by far the largest producer, responsible for 70% of the world's output.
Sunday’s are perfect for extra sleep, leg day, pancake stacks, and maple chai almond lattes 😍. Pumpkin whole grain pancakes with fresh raspberries, pomegranate, and organic pure maple syrup. Recipe will be below. Tip: homemade almond milk froths so good! Tag a friend you’d like to have this breakfast/brunch with on the weekend. I enjoyed mine with my best friend and husband.
1 1/4 cup organic whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup pumpkin purée
1 tbs coconut sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
Few dashes of pumpkin pie spice
Pinch of salt
Blend all ingredients just until smooth. Pour onto a hot non stick griddle or skillet. Wait for bubbles to appear. Flip and cook through on the other side. Top with fresh fruit and warm syrup. Enjoy!
I'm telling you, all the new foods I can eat with my bag is a little overwhelming!! One of the few positives from having Crohn's is I've learned to cook so many foods, and get really creative because the dietary options are so limited. I'm no cook, but I sure know how to cook things the way I like, and if I had a signature dish it'd be my purple yam pancakes! The batter looks a little weird, but they're so good!! Syrup optional! (I usually opt in :) If I get it just right, I get these small chunks of whole yam inside the pancakes. I've got lots of leftovers, who wants one?? #breakfast#pancakes#goodfood#purpleyam#carbs#foodporn#foodie#hungry#delicious#forkyeah#getinmybelly#ibd#crohnsdisease#ulcerativecolitis
HO HO HO Christmas came early this year! 🎅🏼🥞
The hubs may not be able to come home to our fam for Christmas, so I whipped up a stack of paleo pancakes (+ chocolate chips) & today we are celebrating our very own Christmas! 🎄 Topped these babies with @so_delicious coco whip, dark choc drizzle, @wholesomesweet candy canes & festive sprinkles ✨
Our day is filled with holiday movies, way too many sweets from the goodie baskets we made each other, & maybe even a trip to see some Christmas lights later! 🎄Happy Sunday to all, & to all a good day 🌟
After making a batch of pancakes, I realized we ran out of maple syrup. Luckily we had a box of blueberries, perfect for blueberry compote.
Simmer blueberries, sugar, splash of water + splash of lemon juice. Stir frequently and let reduce.
