Hemp Seed Raspberry Buttermilk Pancakes

Pancakes are my kids favourite breakfast and during the summer when we visit the cottage my kids ask for them almost every morning! Even though it is such a tasty treat I still like to find other ways to sneak in health ingredients to make them more nutritious.  They almost always have some sort of fruit but I love raspberries the most in this recipe!  I have added whey powder protein sometimes to give it an extra boost!  In this recipe I have made them with hemp seeds for extra protein! Delicious!

1 3/4 cups flour

3 tablespoons of hemp seeds

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

3 tablespoons sugar or coconut sugar (or substitute Stevia)

pinch of salt

3 cups buttermilk

2 eggs

4 tablespoons butter

1 cup fresh raspberries ( or other seasonal fruit)

Mix dry ingredients together and melt butter and add to the dry mixture. Whisk egg and buttermilk together in separate bowl – then combine all ingredients together and cook pancakes on a hot grill/frying pan – cook until brown on both sides.

Top with icing sugar and mint leaves and serve with maple syrup.
