Heart Healthy Pancakes
“I don’t have to tell you I love you. I fed you pancakes.”
~Kathleen Flinn in “Burnt Toast Makes You Sing Good”
Our Thanksgiving holiday travel plans got cancelled at the last minute, so we spent a quiet Thanksgiving Day together at home. As most of you know, we stopped eating meat and poultry after Bill’s event (and we avoid common wheat as well) so our holiday meal is a bit nontraditional anyway. Yet the feast with the family is always wonderfully bountiful with an abundance of vegetables and Uncle Ernest’s famous homegrown butter beans!
Suddenly unprepared to put together the usual Thanksgiving fare (sans the turkey and stuffing), I used this unexpected change of plans to test this recipe and we were not disappointed! Our nontraditional Thanksgiving meal magically became a heaping plate of blueberry pancakes with an egg fried in a little coconut oil and a big bowl of bananas and juicy red grapefruit slices. Pancakes to me are like a holiday food anyway–they make you smile and leave you with a warm, comforted feeling. And so it was. A happy day spent talking and texting and Facebooking with friends and family. And Spelt-Blueberry Pancakes.
As the day wound down and grew quiet, we threw on our walking shoes, headed down to the beach and were delighted to see the city’s new addition to commemorate the season–a giant snowman of all things for south Florida. I loved it.
