Dairy Free monDay!: PaNcAkEs.....


Dairy Free monDay!

PaNcAkEs! A weekend breakfast favorite. The typical recipe is full of refined grains, sugar, dairy and eggs. Those pancakes are not wholesome to fuel your day or your kids day. I'm guessing they aren't going help you be healthy either. There is a solution!

On this Dairy Free monDay I'd like to share my family's favorite pancake recipe. The best part is that my family's pancakes are made with whole grain, are sugar free, plus they are dairy and egg free. All you weekend pancake lovers will now be able to survive your weekends! You'll also have so much more energy from the whole grains and no afternoon sugar slump.
