Birk + Pancake = Birkcake

Its been so much fun being an ambassador for Sealand Birk, [ill touch on this in another blog post soon] a USDA organic, all-natural  ‘superwater’ tapped directly from birch trees in Finland. Birk has NO artificial flavoring or additives, and the flavored Birk is flavored with less than 2% organic natural fruit extract. It’s an honor to stand alongside a product & sustainable company I feel 101927% confident representing & love.

That being said, I was so excited to kick off my Sunday morning healthy pancake tradition with Tanner incorporating Birk into my recipe. I love adding blueberries into my pancakes, so naturally used Blueberry Birk 🙂  These gems are DELISH.

Sunday mornings are #betterwithBirk

Blueberry Birkcakes

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 bottle Blueberry Birk
  • 1 tablespoon organic coconut sugar
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour or flour substitute, such as coconut flour, quinoa flour, etc.
  • 1/4 cup organic, shredded, nsweetened coconut flakes 
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons organic, shelled hemp seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 organic egg or [vegan substitute] 1/4 cup organic, unsweetened applesauce or 2 tablespoons chia seeds soaked overnight in Birk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 

 

Directions:

  1. Heat an electric skillet to 350F
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix
  3. Add remaining ingredients and mix until well blended and a batter-like consistency forms [add more Birk if batter is too thick; should be able to pour onto skillet]
  4. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to help you measure, or for baby, bite-sized Birkcakes use a tablespoon. 
  5. Spray coconut oil on skillet and pour batter in circles et each side sit about 2 minutes, or until you can smoothly flip to other side. Flip cakes and cook both sizes evenly, until lightly browned
  6. Remove pancakes and top with fresh berries, Greek yogurt, nut butter, pure maple syrup, or whatever your little heart desires 🙂

From my little Birk Kitchen to yours, enjoy!
