Cooking Tips
*Kathryn’s favorite spices to add are Cinnamon and Cardamom. (Kathryn sometimes uses orange peel if she is adding fresh cherries to the batter mix)

**While the pancakes are cooking cut up some fresh fruit (such as strawberries) and toss in a pot with a little bit of water and a small pad of butter. Serve warm on top of pancakes!

Optional add-ins: Kathryn likes to add a small handful of chopped walnuts, coconut flakes, or fresh fruit (like blueberries) into the mix for a little added pizzazz and additional protein (from the nuts).
