Pretty Hemp Pancakes

Pretty Hemp Pancakes

To make these awesome Pretty Hemp Pancakes use one of my favorite life hacks! Just get a store-bought mix and then add hemp protein or ground up hemp seeds to enhance the nutritional value.  Great shortcut for those cold mornings.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup pancake mix (I used Trader Joe’s whole grain, you can use what you have on hand)
  • ¼ cup almond meal
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1¼ cup water
  • 2 tbsp chilled butter or coconut oil to make it vegan, chopped
​​Directions:
  1. Whisk all ingredients in a large bowl before adding water, then continue to whisk well.
  2. Heat a frying pan to medium heat and add a dab o’ butter once hot to get it crackin’…
  3. Pour pancake mix small circles at a time into the hot skillet.
  4. Flip once, to cook both sides.
  5. Set the prepared pancakes aside between two plates to keep them warm until served.

Makes 8 or 9 small sized hotcakes

Meanwhile, in a saucepan near-by, let’s negotiate a:

*Fruity Compote On The Fly* for these guys. I always refer to my own refrigerator and pantry for inspiration when itching to create an impromptu accompaniment for a main dish. This is the fun, cost-efficient, and environmentally friendly way to feed ourselves in my Purplina opinion…let’s see what we have here.

Ingredients:
  • ¾ cup strawberries, chopped
  • 1 chopped apple
  • 1 tsp organic agave nectar or sweetener of choice
  • 1/3 cup juice of some kind (I used a raspberry lemonade, as it was open in the fridge.)
  • ½ tbsp butter or coconut oil
Directions:
  1. Bring all ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat.
  2. Simmer for a bit, til the pancakes are done.

We’re ready to plate these puppies!!! 2 a piece at first (remember, they are *stacked* w/protein, omegas, whole grains, etc.) Top w/a couple spoonfuls of the fruit reduction and a final drizzle of the sweetener on-hand. Thankfully that was 100% pure maple syrup here! Yum…Oh heck, Ima just throw a lil nonfat Greek yogurt at the very end, cuz I’m crazy like that. You do You!
