Old-Fashioned Dairy Free Pancakes

Growing up, Saturday mornings were for Bisquick pancakes and Old Log Cabin syrup. That was my mother’s version of homemade pancakes. Even though she made them from a box mix, I was sure they were the best pancakes on the planet.

I don’t know, maybe it was the thick corn syrup filled sweetness in the bottle and pads of margarine she slathered over those Saturday morning cake stacks that made them so wonderful. Or maybe it was just because she was making it.  Food nostalgia has a way of making our favorite foods taste wonderful.

It wasn’t until I was in my early 30s and suffering from major gut issues that forced me to reconsider the ingredients I was putting into my body. Sometimes you just need a little personal health crisis to motivate you on the path to better eating. It was then I realized how nutritionally bankrupt processed and pre-made boxed food was. This began a journey of eliminating preservatives, pesticides, and artificial ingredients from my diet.

One recipe at a time I replaced some traditional recipes I grew up on with a healthier version. I traded in regular milk for almond milk, granulated sugar for coconut sugar, bleached white flour for organic flour, margarine for real butter (or ghee for dairy-free), and Old Log Cabin Syrup for pure maple syrup.

After making these simple ingredient changes into a lifestyle, I have seen a dramatic improvement in the overall health of myself and my entire family. I can still enjoy my mother’s old-fashioned pancakes, but now I enjoy them made from good healthy ingredients I can feel better about.

Thankfully, my mother’s tradition of Saturday morning pancakes can go on and maybe one day my kids will look back and say, “my mom made the best Saturday morning pancakes on the planet”. That’s a tradition worth passing on.

Recipe Notes

I love to use Trader Joe's private label syrups on these pancakes.

You can purchase both Trader Joe's Syrups in stores.

Look for Trader Joe's Coffee Syrup and Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup while they are in season.
