Can you smell it? Yes, its still summer, but autumn is in the air. Just around the corner. Especially for us New Englanders 😉 (So cool that I can say that once again!). Whether or not this excites or depresses you depends on who you are. I think autumn is the ultimate season though. The brisk air, vibrant colors on the trees, autumn nights, leaves rustling in the breeze, bonfires, walks in the woods, hot drinks in hand, bookstores, all things pumpkin flavored. Just a few of the awesome aspects of autumn.
These Pumpkin Tumeric Pancakes are another 😉
Grain/gluten free, dairy free and sugar free. Moist and totally delicious. And taking less than 15 minutes to whip these babies up. I had five for breakfast this morning. No regrets there.

My first coconut flour pancakes!! I have to say, these are far lighter and fluffier than buckwheat ones are. Buckwheat pancakes are delectable, filling and bready. Tasting totally like the real deal, grain and all (yet, without any ;-)). However the coconut pancakes offer a different texture. I am loving the lightness to them.
Loaded with majorly healthy ingredients. To start, coconut flour. For a short list of health benefits on this gluten free flour alternative, check out this link.
Second, turmeric. What’s being touted as a new superfood and for good reason. To name just a few of the health benefits potentially earned by consuming this spice: can help prevent breast cancer and skin cancer, a natural painkiller, may aid in boosting metabolism, is used in Chinese medicine to treat depression, etc. Whoa. Who knew a single spice could be chock full of such power. For a full list of way cool benefits, check out this link.
Now, how to make these tasty treats:

Oh man, its the weekend. And you know what that means…brunching time!! Weekends are for long, luxurious brunches. And this unquestionably means pancakes, at least in my world ;-). A tall stack, ideally doused in maple syrup, couples with eggs and bacon. These ones are filled with several unique flavorings, all tossed together resulting in this loveliness. Both to look at as well as for eating. Pretty, aren’t they?
Matcha. Blueberries. Chai Seeds. Chocolate Chips. Honey.
Plus, they are gluten/grain free, dairy free, sugar free. Enjoy!

This recipe is actually called Pudina Rice. Its an Indian recipe, which I had the honor of sampling when my dear friend, Bhakti invited me to dinner last week. A celebratory and farewell gift for my big impending move. And man, what a gift it was. This was DELICIOUS, wow. Not generally a fan of mint, finding myself hesitant when she told me it was one of the main ingredients. But, whoa. It was so yummy, loving every bite and even heaping a second portion onto my plate.

Happy weekend, all!
These carrot cake pancakes are the epitome of a perfect autumnal breakfast. I know, I know, its way to early to be talking about fall just yet. Still reveling within the midst of summer, the season of endless evenings, ice cream, the beach, sundresses and picnicking, and loving every minute. However, while these do scream autumn, they would be equally as tasty during any season or occasion. Breakfast in bed…or for dinner. Sunday brunching. A summer picnic entrée. Holing up inside with some wintery comfort food when its snowing. You name it, these are fabulous anytime.
Gluten/grain free, dairy free, sugar free and super easy to make. Enjoy!

I know, I know, yet another pancake recipe. This one is to die for though, whoa. Having to actively hold myself back from eating several (as I need them for brunch with friends tomorrow ;-)). These guys are loaded with a variety of fun flavorings and ingredients. Juicy blueberries. The barest hint of floral with a sprinkling of lavender. Poppyseeds, mostly for photogenic purposes. A dash of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. A capful of vanilla extract. Get excited, these babies are super yummy.
And on top of all that awesomeness? They are grain-free, dairy-free and sugar-free.
