Vegan Buckwheat Blueberry Pancakes

Little A has a habit of asking for elaborate breakfasts on weekdays when we are in a rush.  Lately she's been asking for blueberry pancakes, so I promised her I would make some when I had the time, in advance so they are ready to go for busy mornings.  I finally got around to it and decided to try making vegan ones.  I don't know why, but I have never made pancakes without eggs before, as it turns out, they turn out just fine!  They are also gluten-free because I used nutritious whole buckwheat flour. In addition, I snuck in extra protein with some vanilla hemp protein powder, to keep the girls energized through their busy mornings.  When I make pancakes ahead, I simply freeze them with wax paper in between and then take them out as needed.  You can either defrost them the night before or defrost in the microwave or toaster oven.

Vegan Buckwheat Blueberry Pancakes

2 flax eggs (2 tbsp. ground flax + 6 tbsp. hot water)
1/2 cup baking stevia (or other sweetener)
1 scoop vanilla vegan protein powder (stevia sweetened)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups non-dairy milk or water

2 cups buckwheat flour
2 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Whisk together flax  eggs, stevia, protein powder and vanilla.  Stir in dry ingredients and then start whisking in milk or water, a little at a time.  Batter will be thick.  Stir in blueberries and then drop large spoonfuls onto greased, hot skillet, flipping half way through cooking until golden on both sides.  Makes a bakers dozen (13).  Keep refrigerated for up to 5 days or freeze.

I have shared this recipe with Urban Naturale's Plant-Based Pot-Luck Link Up Party and Vegetarian Mamma's Gluten-Free Friday.

Blackfly Coolers: Product Review

Summer is over! Well, at least if you're a student. Officially it doesn't end for a few weeks, and it certainly still feels like summer. Yeah, I hate it. This f*cking hot, humid weather needs to end NOW! We made the most of our last weekend of the summer with our annual trip to the CNE on Friday, with a crowd of friends. It wasn't unbearably lot, thank goodness, and the girls and their friends had a blast on the rides.  Saturday I had to work, and Sunday was errand day. Monday we took the girls berry/apple/pear picking but didn't last long due to the heat. I organized the house to prepare for the construction workers starting back up yesterday, while Adam took the girls for a swim in our neighbourhood pool.

Yesterday was the first day of school. Grade 2 and Grade 5. Yep, the girls are growing up.  We are fortunate that the girls don't have much anxiety about school, they are so much more confident than I ever was as a kid! But now, in the midst of our reno chaos, …

Live Clean

I have been committed to living a healthy life through nutrition and fitness for over 20 years now.

It took me a lot longer to pay attention to what I was cleaning the house with and what I was putting ON my body as opposed to IN it.

When I got pregnant with Big A I started reading about the toxins in a lot of commercial cleaning products and switched to the all-natural, eco-friendly stuff. When I became pregnant with Little A, I switched to all-natural, eco-friendly personal care products.

I am all for being environmentally friendly for the good of the planet, but to be honest, what really motivates me to make these types of changes is concern for my family's health.

You may remember I mentioned giving up my favorite perfume a while back because it apparently is full of nasty chemicals. I switched to the "Red Tea" scent made my Roots, which is supposed to be somewhat "natural". This was only after a number of trial and errors. I first found a woman in …

Panang Curry

When we go out for Thai food, one of my favorite things to order is the panang curry. But there is no doubt when this dish is made in a restaurant, it packs a hefty wallop of fat, sodium and calories.

My version is lightened up, but still rich and flavourful and it is super simple to make.

Traditionally, panang curry is made with either beef or chicken, but I made it vegetarian, using dried seiten (wheat gluten) I got at T&T a few weeks ago. If you are not sensitive to gluten, this is a great source of vegetarian protein. If you cannot find it dried, you can get it prepared at most health food stores. Alternatively, you can use tofu, or the more traditional chicken or beef options.

This dish also doesn't usually have much vegetable matter in it, but I love how yummy veggies taste when simmered in this sauce, and it makes this a healthy one-pot meal. Use whatever veggies you prefer or have on hand.

Protein of choice (2 cups seiten or 1 lb organic tofu, boneless skinless ch…
