Pancakes From a Can?!

Not too shabby eh?

What if I told it they were pancakes from an aerosol can?!?!

So I saw this on the shelf by the organic yogurt the other day at the grocery store and I laughed out loud.  The idea of it was hilarious to me and more so because it is “organic.”  Many people assume that because something is “organic” that is a “healthy” choice.  As you can see from the ingredients, it’s not all good, but not all bad either.  But it is in a can after all.  I decided that I had to buy it, if for nothing else, for the blog! :-D

This morning was as good a day as any to put this puppy to the test.  I warmed up my non-stick pan, sprayed it with some EVOO and gave it a few “squirts” ? of pancake batter:

Then I started to panic wondering what I was going to do to “healthify” them a bit more and I sprinkled them with sprouted ground chia!

They cooked up quite nicely actually!

I sprinkled a few POM seeds on top and some sugar free syrup for dipping.  It ended up being kind of impressive!

I think what I liked most about it was that it’s ready-made batter in the fridge and I can make it in no-time flatif I want pancakes on a “work” morning.  They weren’t too bad in the fluffy department either.  But all in all, that would be my only reason for wanting to use it.  It’s pretty easy to whip up a batch of pancakes if you’ve got more than a few minutes!

Nooowwwwww, moving on to my new LOVE!!!

You might not think so by looking at it, but this stuff rocks my world :-)

It has such a beautiful fresh balance of bright tasting ingredients like ginger, cilantro and lemon grass are incredible and I just love it!  The lemon grass really sticks out and it kicks the pants off of regular hummus in the taste department and is comparable in the NI department.

I can’t be trusted around it if I’m hungry at all!

I will most DEFINITELY be needing a new container of this next grocery shop!
