Sunflower Seed Pancakes ... Yum!

When my oldest son was little, he had many food allergies ... so I was always searching for (and concocting) new and tasty recipes.

In the process, I came up with the recipe for Sunflower Seed Pancakes (which we still eat and enjoy today). Thought folks might enjoy giving them a try ...

1 and 3/4 cup raw sunflower seed flour ( I buy raw sunflower seeds and grind them myself via our coffee grinder)
3 eggs
2 tablespoons water
1/8 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix ingredients and prepare in skillet in the same fashion as more traditional pancakes.
Serve with real maple syrup ... yum!
Recipe makes 6 medium size pancakes

Note: These are heavy, hearty (almost "meaty") pancakes. If you like a lighter pancake, sift sunflower seed flour before adding other ingredients to it and/or add a bit of wheat flour to the mix (adding additional water accordingly).

SpirtualBeings ... let me know how your hubby likes the Sunflower Seed pancakes!

Somewhere I have a Carob Cake recipe that fits the bill of "no wheat or dairy". I used to bake it all the time for Birthdays, but unfortunately I can't put my hands on it any more. Would love to have a piece of that yummy right cake now!
