Recipe: Burcha Superfood Pancakes

If you follow me on Instagram, you KNOW how much I love my Burcha & that I've been using it in everything from smoothies to oatmeal to pancakes. I love how many ways I can incorporate this superfood blend of nuts & seeds.

What is Burcha? It was originally invented by a man named Maximilian Oskar Bircher Benny. He was a nutritionist & health pioneer in 1879. It was through blogger Loni Jane that I found her riff on his recipe & herein lies, my riff on that.

BURCHA PANCAKES

What you need: 
1/3 Cup Burcha Mix (see above)
1/3 Cup Gluten Free Quick Oats
2 Organic Eggs
1 ripe Banana
Dash of pure Vanilla Extract
Few dashes of Cinnamon or 2 drops doTERRA Cinnamon Essential Oil
Non-dairy milk (like Coconut Milk or Almond Milk) if it looks like it needs to thin out a bit
Organic Grassfed Butter or Coconut Oil
Maple Syrup (optional)

What to do:
Heat up a pan on the stovetop, mix & smash all ingredients together, add butter or coconut oil to the pan & cook like pancakes! Then drizzle maple syrup on top, if you like.

Tip: I like to keep my oven on 200 degrees so as the pancakes are ready, I can pop them in the oven to stay warm. You can even under cook the first few slightly so they can finish cooking in the oven :)

Burcha Mix can be added to oatmeal, smoothies, overnight 'oats', you name it! I plan to keep on expermienting.
