SPROUTED SEEDS ARE NUTRITIOUS
SPROUTED SEEDS ARE NUTRITIOUS!
When seeds are sprouted, the sprouts are more nutritious than the original plants. We are enjoying sprouts this winter! I ordered mung seeds, broccoli seeds and alfalfa seeds from MUMM’S SPROUTING SEEDS in Saskatchewan. I usually have 2 jars sprouting at the same time. If I have to remember to rinse one jar, it may as well be two & we then have a variety on hand in the fridge.
The alfalfa sprouts are ready this morning so I left them sit in the sun for a few hours and the tips turned green. I keep a plastic bag or 2 of sprouts in the fridge to add to all of our salads. Today I am adding them to the pancake/waffle batter.
For lunch today I am making pancakes/waffles. I like waffles and Melvin likes pancakes so we are both happy. The following recipe made 6 waffles and two thick Belgium waffles.
I thawed blueberries and strawberry and mixed in a few drops of stevia to put on top.
SPROUTED SEED WAFFLES/PANCAKES
1 1/2 cups coconut yogurt (The recipe is in the EAT MORE WHOLE GRAINS cookbook update)
1/2 cup alfalfa spouts
2 tablespoons avocado oil
Put the above ingredients into a blender and process for 3 minutes.
1 1/4 cups gluten free flour (I used 1 cup quinoa flour & 1/4 cup cassava flour)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt
Add the above ingredients to the blender and process until mixed.
Fry in a fry pan in coconut oil or bake in a waffle iron.
Enjoy with fruit on top!
This is just one of the healthy recipes I have included in the EAT MORE WHOLE GRAINS free eBook that comes by email with the purchase of EAT MORE WHOLE GRAINS cookbook from my website. This EAT MORE WHOLE GRAINS cookbook is now on sale for less than half price.
This recipe is gluten free and dairy free. The sprouts and packed with nutrition, the coconut yogurt is a great probiotic and the fruit is full of antioxidants. Quinoa is an anti-inflammatory, a complete protein & is nutrient-rich. The avocado oil is a healthy fat.
Wow! What a healthy lunch we are going to enjoy in just a few minutes!
This is a very easy to make and healthy meal to prepare and serve in short order! Winnie
