Hi Guys! Ready or not it’s another week. Let’s blast right into with some amazing pancakes!
A few weeks ago I was at Trader Joe’s and stumbled upon this cashew meal. I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but I knew it belonged in my pantry. So there it sat for 2 or maybe 4 weeks in my pantry. Every time I opened the door it would catch my eye and I would think “I should make something with that.” I love cooking with almond flour, but there’s something about the flavor of cashews that just make you wanna go hmm…
Then one morning I was craving pancakes which is really weird for me. I’m not a sweet breakfast kinda person. I know that must be a surprise with all the treats I’m always posting. Truth be told, I like my sweets later in the day. I’ve just never been a big pancakes, french toast or waffles person. What can I say? I’m boring. I like eggs, oatmeal & fruit in the morning but I digress…
So one really weird day I was craving pancakes. When I was out for my morning walk, it came to me…make cashew pancakes. I just bought cashew milk too for another recipe and decided it was worth a whirl. Not only am I not a huge fan of pancakes, anytime I’ve tried to make them they’ve been pretty flat and blah.
But these…holly molly deliciousness!
These pancakes were thick and hearty. The combination of the cashew meal and cashew milk enhance the nutty flavor of cashews. I tossed in some chia seeds too which gave them a little extra something, something. These were exactly the pancake I had been craving and the kind I dreamed of making one day.
Hope you love them!
