As a child, I loved Sunday mornings when my dad would be chef and make us pancakes, or when he would be on the rare business trip and we would get to have pancakes for dinner. I remember pancake breakfasts with the girl scouts, pancakes over an open fire, blueberry pancakes at IHOP and Mickey Mouse pancakes made with love.
I seldom eat pancakes now because I am limiting my grains and avoiding most wheat, This past summer, Gary Young and Young Living released an Einkorn pancake mix that is delicious and has many health benefits. I have been enjoying it for an occasional treat.

Einkorn wheat has only 14 chromosomes, while modern wheat has been altered so dramatically that it currently has 42 chromosomes. These extra chromosomes make it very difficult for our bodies to digest the wheat properly and this creates problems such as leaky gut and celiac disease. Gary Young learned of this ancient grain and began searching for it. After years of searching, he finally found it in Jordan and brought some seeds back to Utah to begin cultivating.
Einkorn wheat is high in protein, low in gluten. The gluten in this pancake mix is only .53% compared to whole wheat pancake mixes with 9.92% gluten. All the ingredients in this pancake mix are non-GMO and the prepared pancakes have a great flavor. Young Living may soon be growing large quantities of Einkorn wheat, possibly in Africa.
So now, I can enjoy a healthy pancake option. Add some walnut pieces, banana pieces, cinnamon powder and a few drops of cinnamon bark essential oil, a dash of nutmeg and presto...you too will have a scrumptious, healthy pancake to enjoy.
