Wealthfully Healthy Almond Pancakes
Out with the white flour and processed white sugar, there's a new pancake in town.
If you're the type of person who enjoys starting your day off with gastronomic wealth, this recipe is for you. It's proof both healthy and tasty can be consumed at the same time. These little pancakes are loaded with flavor boasting an earthy flair. You wouldn't ordinarily equate mushrooms with breakfast pancakes, but in this instance, they are fabulous, bringing both wonderful flavor and a wealth of vitamins and nutrients.
They're the perfect brunch pancake doused with pure maple syrup and served with berries and other healthy sides. For this morning's Sunday brunch I kept it simple: I added a side of sauteed asparagus, fresh squeezed orange juice, and mochas.
If you have an abundance of lemons in the garden like I do, a dollop of home-made lemon curd on top is amazing as well!
One of the best decisions I made when we were designing our vegetable garden was to add espalier lemon, orange, and lime trees along this fence.
For such small trees, we get an abundance of fruit. And, even though we get temperatures dropping below freezing, this fence does a good job of protecting them. I never need to cover them up. No frostbite here. If you're thinking of adding your own trees, I'd highly recommend these.
We've had such Spring-like days here in Northern California.
All kinds of blossoms are arriving, including the beautiful blooms on my tulip trees.
Speaking of wealthfully healthy, vitamins & minerals, blossoms, health and growth, I ORDERED SOMETHING! Something BIG. I have a vision for a whole new space across the driveway up here on the farm. It's going to eventually be a multi-functional addition to the property. It's going to take several months to arrive, but I'm going to reveal what it is on IG this week. It's just one part of the overall vision I have.
Just one more GARDEN photo to share today.
That was a hint!
