Probiotic Paleo Pancakes

Probiotic Pancakes

I love making finger food for breakfast because I can make double or triple the batch and keep them in the fridge for the kids and our lunch boxes.  I find that cooking in bulk means I don’t have to be in the kitchen all day everyday.

These are salmon, dill and sweet potato pancakes or fritters but you can change the recipe and use any veggies and herbs you like.  You can use yesterday’s left over roast meat or skip it and use mushroom for a vegetarian option.

Sweet Spud Sprouted Buckwheat Soda Bread

This is my favourite bread recipe for so many reasons……

Sweet Spud Sprouted Buckwheat Soda BreadNot only does it taste delicious and is super simple to make, it’s structured from simple nutritious ingredients; buckwheat, sweet potato and chia seeds.

It is allergy free and free from gluten/grain, yeast, gum, sugar, preservative, dairy, egg, nut and oil.

I have made loads of variations of this recipe including wraps, loaves and pizza bases.  For those of you not familiar with ‘soda breads’ they are traditionally made with wheat flour, salt, bi carb SODA and buttermilk.  The reaction between the acidic buttermilk and the soda causes an instant rise/bubbling in the dough without the need for yeast, baking powder or egg.  I got the idea for this bread one day at my sons kindy when the teachers made a sandpit volcano erupt using bi carb soda, water, vinegar and food coloring.
