Bon Appetit Spelt Pancakes

As I've stated in many of my previous posts, my two sons are hit or miss with eating a well rounded breakfast. They prefer sugary cereal or snacks and I'm lucky if they will eat anything with protein or any form or nutrition. In the last couple of months I have been experimenting with various breakfast recipes in an attempt to add something healthier into my two boys breakfast routine. The July issue of Bon Appetit had a recipe for Spelt Pancakes, which looked like the perfect healthy breakfast idea for my two boys.

This recipe has 13 ingredients and goes together very quickly. I had no problem finding any of the specialized flours in the health food section of my local grocery store. Instead of using rice or soy milk I used whole cow's milk, since that is what I already had on hand. One word of caution for this recipe, the pancakes seemed to brown quicker than pancakes made with all-purpose flour, so I kept the temp lower on my gas stove.

My two year old loved this recipe. I served the pancakes with fresh peaches for breakfast, which was a hit. He went back multiple times throughout the day for more pancakes, which I topped with homemade peanut butter (recipe to be posted later). This recipe is a great for people with a gluten intolerance and according to the magazine, maintaining a low-gluten diet may improve muscle recovery after a work-out.

For the recipe go to Bon Appetit Spelt Pancakes.
