I'm so excited to be back on my blog...from all the moves this past year it has been hard for me to stay consistent, but now that we are settled for a while I'll be back on here on a regular basis...yayyy.
What is the weather like where you live? I live in the sweet state of GA & you never know what the weather will be like when you wake up, but today we woke up to cold wood floors & and a breeze in the air....we have all the windows open and the curtains are flowing....I'm so in love with this time of year. Every time summer ends I cannot wait to get myself a pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks and be cozied up on the couch drinking Chai Lattes....I'm not the only one, right? Well since this time is here I wanted to share with you one of our favorite pancake recipes. What makes these pancakes so good is that it is a healthier version of pancakes yet still so amazing.
Have you ever heard of Young Living essential oils? I had never heard of them a year ago, but after a year of using them they have truly made such an amazing difference in our life. I love things that are so easy to incorporate into your life....and that's why I love essential oils....I can cook with them, use them as beauty & skin care products, clean with them, & the list goes on....but what I love most is that we don't have to use over-the-counter medicine anymore....these oils have totally taken the place of medicine in our home & that truly is a blessing!
So if you are in the fall mood like I am....you will love making this recipe that I threw together using my Thieves essential oil....& you'll make your spouse happy too ;) These are one of Blake's favorites.
* 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of natural all purpose wheat flour
* 1/4 cup of all natural brown sugar
* 1 teaspoon of Clabber Girl gluten free baking powder
* 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
* 1/4 teaspoon of salt
* 2 organic eggs
* 1 cup of organic buttermilk
* 2 tablespoons of olive oil
* 3/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
* 3 tablespoons of either espresso, regular strong coffee, or tea (I used regular Community Coffee Brand "Coffee & Chicory" flavor from my coffee this morning)
* 2 drops of thieves oil
In a mixer combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, & salt. In a seperate bowl combine the eggs, buttermilk, oil, vanilla, coffee, & Thieves. Beat the liquids together & then pour into dry ingredients. Let mixer run on low until all blended. In a lightly greased skillet (I used coconut oil) drop batter by 1/4 cupful. Fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Makes 7 pancakes.
*** Use organic maple syrup & serve with fat free cool whip....bon appetit! ***
Please feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in purchasing essential oils & if you have already made up your mind and want to purchase here is a little guide on how to do so:
~ Go to youngliving.com
~ Click on become a member on the menu tab
~ Once it brings you to the page, make sure you choose "Wholesale Member" (and not the retail customer--you will not get the wholesale prices as a customer...and you will never have to sell anything as a Member if you don't want to...it can be solely for the discount)
~ Enter my # 2262072 in the sponsor ID and enroller ID blanks
~ Fill out all your info
~ Select your kit ($150 PREMIUM STARTER KIT is the best value. You get 10 oils plus a home diffuser in this kit plus a roll-on oil)
~ You can say no to the Essential Rewards--this is something you totally do not ever have to do, but more than likely will want to once you fall in love with your oils.
~ At this point you can add more to your order if you'd like.
~ All finished!
Ahhhhhh I'm so excited that I'm back sharing my journey with you guys. Wish I could invite you all over for brunch! Keep me posted if you try it out and like it :) Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great week...love you guys!
