Works for me Wednesday

In our house, we have a special diet to accommodate. My daughter (12 months), is allergic to wheat, legumes, soy, eggs, dairy (all not just cows milk products), and beef. So, what works for me is buckwheat pancakes. Contrary to popular belief….buckwheat is not in the wheat family. It is technically an herb.


1 c oatmeal

1/2 c buckwheat flour (you can get it in bob’s red mill packages in whole foods)

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 c to 1/2 c rice milk (vanilla is fine) (enough to make it like a thick mud pie)

1tbsp canola oil

1 tsp honey (I will use 1 tbsp of brn sugar)

mix it up and cook as any pancake batter. I like to add cinnamon to mine. I also use it for waffle mix. a variation you can use is also replace the 1/4 c  rice milk with 1/2 c pumpkin stuff from a can and 1/4 tsp of pumpkin pie spice…..i dress with a little powdered sugar and serve warm. You can also serve with syrup if you like. It is a good way to get extra fiber in your diet and some veggies if you use the canned pumpkin…… That is a breakfast that works for us.
