Today was my week to teach to the preschoolers of which my daughter is part of. It's a cooperative program and the mom's rotate teaching.
Our letter today was P and so I thought it would be to have all of us wear pajamas and eat pancakes for snack.
Yes! It was deliciously, comfortably fun!
So my usual pancakes are a combo of pumpkin/squash, almond meal, blended beans.... and I wasn't sure how all the preschoolers would react. So I decided to go a little more traditional and just use whole wheat flour. I have been reading a bit on soaking flour before using it to break down the phytates and make it more digestible so I decided to give it a try.
I got a lot of my information here on why to soak grains before eating them.
I found the recipe here, and they were delicious!
Sourdough bread is delicious and the next challenge for me will be to create a good starter and start making my own sourdough bread. It's making me hungry just thinking about it.
I typically don't use bread a bunch because of the high sugar content and high carb. count. Plus, I usually feel bloated after eating bread.
BUT Bread is SO GOOD you say, and my kids say it too, so maybe this whole overnight thing will be our fix. It was a hit for breakfast!! That's for sure!
Also I don't normally do dairy either but I did use the Cultured Buttermilk this time. I will have to experiment with vinegar/lemon juice to see what I can come up with.
I would love to hear if you have done this and what worked/didn't work for you. AND, if you have a good sourdough starer please share :)
