Maple Crusted Cashew Pancakes

Okay.  Yum.

Pancake Mix (Prepare according to the packaging- I left notes for my mix below)

1/4 to 1/2 Cup of Maple Roasted Cashews

Cashew Butter (or nut butter of choice)

Maple Syrup (I used Log Cabin Organic Maple Syrup)

Honey

These were delicious for my girly fatty food weekend.  Really, eaten in moderation, these aren’t too bad for ya’.

I took just a typical box of Buckwheat pancake mix.  It called for milk and eggs, but I used different replacements, however the mix itself was just buckwheat and spices.

Make your pancakes however your mix or your own recipe calls for.

Instead of an egg, I added about a tablespoon of honey and used 8th Continent Soy Milk instead of regular milk.  This recipe called for a dash of oil, but I typically add about a teaspoon to pancake mix, even if it is not required.

After the batter was mixed up I put an average size spoonful into the skillet.  After about 15-20 seconds of the pancake cooking I added Maple Roasted Cashews to the pancake.  This way the face-down side was cooked enough for the cashews not to burn on the bottom, and not cooked enough for the cashews to poke out of the top.  I found the Maple roasted cashews at my local co-op but I assume it’d be just as delicious with honey roasted, or any other fun crusty-crunchy-nut of your choice.

When the pancakes were prepared I slapped cashew butter on two of the pancakes and peanut butter on another.

Sprinkled a few extra cashews on the top of the pancakes with a very light drizzle of honey

Drizzle of Maple Syrup

Then Nom Nom on it. Yum.

(I’m still looking for any information from people who live in Denver about the food there, places to get groceries, etc.)
