These boys LOVE pancakes!

Last one! What's with all the Studio J this week you ask? Well, besides the fact that CTMH gifted us with 5 free layouts (and who doesn't like free), I've been pretty down for the count with allergy issues, so much so that there may have been a visit to Urgent care and a bunch of steroids prescribed. Again. I wasn't much up to scrapping and stamping this week at all - thanks goodness Studio J is around to keep me amused and feeling semi crafty! Farmville for scrapbookers I always say!

This kit is with the new Victory papers, which I'll be featuring in my club kit for next month. You should see those pics go up next week! We made a pleated ribbon trim using the ribbon tabs option - way less messy  to achieve for me than this one or this one! I am not a fan of liquid glue, but I keep on truckin'! 

We did some more cropping of StickEase images - a trick I wish I'd known before. You just grab the little icon at the edge of the StickEase and drag it in to trim off the part you don't want to show - so simple! 

Finally, since we can no longer indulge in pancakes (the whole family is now (happily) gluten free, here's our favorite recipe for Gluten Free pancakes...which I actually cook in a waffle iron. They don't crisp up like a waffle, but I find it a lot simple than dealing with flipping tender gluten free pancakes. So our pancakes look weird., but taste good - a daily mantra around these parts. 

The search for a decent GF pancake recipe quite a big deal around here, and this is the best compilation of all the many, many, MANY techniques and recipes we tried. Enjoy!

Terrific Teff Pancakes:

1 cup Teff Flour 
1 1/2 cups yogurt or plain kefir
3/4 cup buttermilk (or regular milk with a tbsp of vinegar added, let sit for 5 minutes)
3 eggs
2 tbsp coconut sugar (or honey or your fav sweetener)
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Coconut oil or butter for greasing up the griddle/waffle iron

Heat up your waffle iron. Beat Eggs a bit, then mix in all the ingredients and blend until a nice batter forms. Grease up your cooking surface and fill up the waffle iron as per usual. Cook until your waffle iron says "done", then eat em up with extra butter and real maple syrup - or homemade strawberry jam! Nom nom nom! 

Sometimes we do 1/4 cup coconut flour (not a typo, coconut flour sucks up moisture like you wouldn't believe), but the teff comes out more like a traditional whole grain looking pankcake. We use the waffle iron but it still feels like a pancakes when you eat it, soft and yummy! Have some bacon too - heaven!

Next I'll need a layout of the boys helping to make their favorite breakfast treat! Thanks for stopping by...and sorry if you now need to go and get you a big fluffy stack o' yummy pancake goodness!

Linking up!
