Pancakes

We're off Bisquick! You may have searched this blog before and found this recipe with Bisquick as an ingredient, but I was forced off of it this morning when I reached for it, and found none. I had already said the word "pancakes" out loud to my children, so I had to move forward with the 'from scratch' approach. And I can't believe I wasn't doing it like this before, because they're ten times better. Feel free to substitute in a little whole wheat flour and add a few teaspoons of ground flaxseed meal to boost the health factor.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
3/4 t. salt
2 T. sugar
equivalent of 2 eggs, beaten
2 c. almond milk
dash of cinnamon
dash of vanilla extract
drizzle of agave syrup

Whisk together dry ingredients. Stir in egg replacer, almond milk, cinnamon, extract and agave, stirring only until large lumps are gone (over-stirring will make pancakes tough). Allow batter to "rest" for a few minutes before pouring onto a skillet preheated over medium-low heat. (I spray the skillet with cooking spray then wipe it down with a paper towel before pouring pancakes to give the pancakes a uniform color and texture.) Flip pancakes when edges start to turn golden and little bubbles appear in the batter. Yields 10 - 15 pancakes.
