I'm a Christian wife & homeschooling mama, saved by faith through grace. I changed my family's diet from SAD (Standard American Diet) to healthy, delicious & nutritious traditional foods. I've recently discovered there's a name for the way that I eat. It's called Primal or Paleo (I like the diet and think of the men and women who worked hard from sunup to sundown, constantly on the go, eating meat, berries they picked, cheese they made. I do not believe in evolution). No grains, legumes, refined sugars, and no/limited dairy.

Thin Pancakes

One of my favorite childhood foods were Thin Pancakes. I remember when my dad taught me the recipe to make them. I was homeschooled at the time, and I was over at his office (he's a pastor at the church next door to my parents' house). He wrote on the white board a little visual aid, so I'd remember the proportions. We spent some time with me memorizing it, and I said it all the way home...now I kind of wonder why he didn't just write it down, but it gave me a fun memory! LOL

The picture looked something like this, except my dad's a better artist:

When I was a kid, we sprinkled white sugar on them, out of the classic Tupperware sugar pourer, and rolled them up, but I don't like to use white sugar, so we used maple syrup, then rolled them up. They were yummy!

The recipe, as the picture clearly shows, is 1 egg, 1 cup of flour, and 1 cup of milk. I used a local, free range egg, 1 cup of Gluten Free Mama Flour mix, and 1 cup of Almond Milk (original). Mix it all together, and pour some on a hot pan, greased with, you guessed it! Coconut oil. Move pan to make circle. When it's no longer shiny on top, flip it. You can also serve with fruit preserves!

  1. I grew up eating those too. We called them flapjacks though. They are one of my favorite foods to this day. When we go to my grandmas house she still makes them for us. Otherwise I have made them numerous time myself.
    Thanks for bringing that memory back.
