Last night I pushed my self to get out of bed and go to the sugar bush for dinner! We had been planning to go and had these reservations for over a month I could not miss out! A tradition of my family is to go to Sucrerie du Terroir. This sugar bush is the best place in town for the following reasons:
- Only about 45 minutes from Ottawa
- Who does not like eating breakfast for dinner
- You can bring your own booze!!!!
- They have live entertainment of French traditional songs
- It is all you can eat and they serve it to you
- The waitresses wear traditional attire
- They serve: omelet, maple ham, baked beans, pea soup, rustic potatoes, sausage, oreilles de crisse (bacon rinds), maple toffee on snow, coffee or tea NOT GLUTEN FREE- Fresh homemade bread, pancakes, and little maple tarts
It was the perfect evening to enjoy with friends and family! However was I ever craving pancakes this morning!
COOK THIS: Gluten Free Pancakes
Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: 5 to 10 minutes for the whole batch
Serve with: Maple syrup of course and butter! You could also add your favorite berry to the mix or chocolate chips!
Did you know: When you add flax seeds to your recipe your are adding omega 3! Try it today you will see you won’t even taste the difference!
- 6 tbs of flax seeds
- 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder
- 2 tsp of cinnamon
- 1/2 cup of tapioca flour
- 1/2 of sweet white sorghum flour
- 3/4 cups of oat flour
- 1 scoop of whey protein
- 1 cup of Almond Milk
- 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla
- 2 eggs
Mix well all the dry ingredients. Than add all the wet ingredients.
Pour round disks onto a hot buttered pan and cook approximately a 1minute on each side.
Serve them hot with butter and maple syrup! Now I will warn you now they are not as fluffy as gluten pancakes but they are just as good and you will get used to the texture fast!
