Happy Mother's Day to moms, grandmas, godmothers, and aunts everywhere! Especially to my gluten free mama, who I lovingly refer to on this blog as Babs. My mom was diagnosed with celiac a year after I was and we're the only two in our family that follow a gluten free diet. Yep, we're a split household as far as food goes, so we know a thing or two about cross contamination.
This Mother's Day we're doing the Annual Beverly Breast Cancer Walk and then coming home and having brunch. This year it's all about the crêpes. I've been on a kick since I discovered gluten free (buckwheat) crêpes at Flip Crêpes a couple weeks ago. Last weekend I practiced making some with the sample baking mixes I received in the CDF Celiac Conference goodie bag.
Since my niece and nephew spent the night and love my cake pop maker, we made Cinnamon Sugar donut holes with XO Baking Company's Pancake and Waffle Mix for breakfast the next morning. I followed the instructions on the bag and made them using unsweetened almond milk and coconut oil. After they were baked, I browned some butter to dip them in, and then rolled them around in my cinnamon and sugar mixture. Divine!
For the crêpes, I used the Pure Pantry Organic Buckwheat Flax Pancake and Baking Mix. Again I just followed the instructions on the bag and used almond milk and coconut oil while preparing them.
Unfortunately I didn't have any fresh berries to top them with, or even Nutella, but I did have Peanut Butter & Co. Chocolate Peanut Butter and some cherry preserves that made for a yummy cherry chocolate crêpe. Another variety was a chocolate peanut butter banana crêpe.
Now how about a giveaway to celebrate moms?
With Mother's Day brunch right around the corner (literally), I'm sure eggs will be on the menu. Land O'Lakes Farm Fresh All Natural Eggs are a great choice for your egg dishes. Here's why:
