Pancakes. 

Is there ever a wrong time to consume them? 

Literally the perfect meal for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. In fact, growing up my dad would always make a big stack of pancakes for my brothers and I for dinner. Something about fluffy, perfectly golden pancake topped with maple syrup just brings a smile to a kid’s face. 

Now that Charlie is eating food, I’ve been giving her pancakes throughout the day. They are super easy to make ahead and you can add whatever ingredients to them as well. 

We’ve been making these Mixed Berry Almond Pancakes a lot lately. Oh, the pure joy of summer produce! I always have on hand strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries. BUT! What makes these pancakes really flavorful are these three ingredients:

·         Open Nature® Almond Flour

·         Open Nature® Almond Butter

·         Open Nature® Icelandic Yogurt, Plain 0%

I am so lucky that I live down the street from Safeway because my access to Open Nature products is so easy! All of these high-quality products are made with ingredients from nature without any artificial flavors and come at an incredible value! Which makes this mama very happy! 

Plus, I get to give Charlie  different types of flavor whether through the Open Nature Almond Butter or Open Nature Icelandic Yogurt, Plain 0%. Or a chance to try Open Nature Almond Flour which is a great option if you want to do gluten-free. Open Nature products offer a variety of healthy alternatives such as plant based, protein rich, gluten free options along with compostable and biodegradable based on lifestyle & wellness needs.

To make these Mixed Berry Almond Pancakes all you have to do is mix the almond flour, almond butter, milk, yogurt, banana, baking soda, baking powder, egg, and vanilla in a bowl. Once combined pour the batter into a hot skillet, sprinkle your mixed berry medley on top, flip, and enjoy! 

Just don’t forget the copious amounts of maple syrup drizzled on top!
