Making dinner is such an ordeal. Of all the meals made at home, dinner is the most stressful, cumbersome, and often unappreciated. As of late, dinner has been feeling rather energetic, creative, broadening my family’s palette and horizon of food choices. Our family is a huge fan of Asian food and I was craving something deep fat fried and covered in chocolate, but my will to eat healthy outweighed my darkest desire.

Sunday mornings are a ritual family breakfast for our family. Generally a large breakfast and one we all enjoy together. This last Sunday was pancakes, I love pancakes and I love to mix up my recipe ingredients to try a new spin. My newest addition made this batch, light, buttery, and fabulous with some fresh fruit. Even better….these pancakes are not out of a box and the cost is $2.00 for the these tasty delights!
- 1 1/2 cups Organic Flour
- 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon Sea Salt
- 1 tablespoon Organic White Sugar
- 1 1/4 cups Organic (skim) milk or Organic Soy (gives it a rich, fluffy taste)
- 1 egg (love my cage free, free range Organic brown eggs)
- 3 tablespoons Organic butter, melted (or margarine)
- 1 tablespoon Organic lemon juice
All those ingredients and yes, all together based on the weight of each item is a total cost of $2.00 to make a dozen and a half pancakes, guilt free, good for you, good for the environment and all of the ingredients are items you would normally have in your pantry or fridge. No need to buy any additional cake mixes or boxed batters or even those spray batters in a can (really? I thought that was only for whip cream?!) that have compressed gases and what not. Fresh, easy, easy on your budget, and you can double your batch, freeze them and save them for the following weekend or during the week when the kids want some. My kids scarfed these down with some fresh fruit and they always want more.
Who said organic had to be expensive?
