Happy Summer, all! Yes, yet another pancake recipe. These ones bursting through with berry deliciousness.
In adapting a diet free of refined sugar for the next 3.5 weeks, a personal challenge of sorts (save for honey and maple syrup), I threw together this recipe as the thought of going more than a couple days without pancakes made my heart fall. These are loaded with juicy berry goodness, laced through with the most subtle floral of lavender.
Gluten/grain free, lactose free, and with no refined sugar. The most perfect of summer breakfasts with their varied purple and blue colors, along with the use of fresh berries, and their light, fluffy texture.

Autumn is officially here, and with it, you’re looking at an especially happy camper. I’ve lamented my love of and romance towards this particular season in several blog entries on Travels and Trdelnik, so I wont go into too much depth here. For a list of enticing, awesome seasonal activities though, here you go. A recent entry listing several hopefully interesting and inspiring ideas for readers (in addition to waxing on about my adoration of this time of year). In the meantime though, these pancakes.
Gluten/grain free, dairy free and sugar free. Loaded with cranberries and pumpkin, two ultra healthy ingredients. To name a few fun facts…apparently cranberries lower your risk of cancer, help increase urinary tract health, reduce inflammation, and are great for dental health. Pumpkin, don’t even get my started on this one. I love it. A couple of the supposed health benefits: pumpkin is great for joint health, reducing inflammation, helps protect the eyes, and is great for your skin- giving it a glow and preventing premature aging.
Back to the pancakes and how to make this mouthwatering dish. Its an easy one. I eat these several times a week (in varying flavor varieties). I’m willing to bet after sampling them, you might be tempted towards doing the same…;-)
As a side note, for LOADS more brunching food porn, recipes and stellar spots to eat breakfast, look no further. This article has it all.

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 Turmeric 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.
