Even without omelets or scrambled eggs, our family loves breakfast for dinner. It's a great quick-fix dinner that adds some fun to the week. Although we often make egg-free pancakes from scratch, it's sometimes easier to find a box mix that we can adapt to fit our needs, especially on a busy weeknight. This week, we tried a new mix: the Log Cabin Whole Grain Pancake Mix. Instead of adding milk and eggs, though, we stuck to water, oil, and applesauce---with great success! Now we have a new but still healthy shortcut that can work when we're on the go or when we want to feed a crowd of kids. Here is what worked for us:
We used the instructions for 1 cup of pancake mix. Instead of milk, we simply used water. In place of the egg, we substituted 2 tablespoons of jarred unsweetened applesauce (though any fruit puree could work here) and 2 tablespoons of 100% canola oil. For extra flavor, we added a pinch each of nutmeg, allspice, and cinnamon.
The batter poured easily and cooked well on medium-high heat...
...and the results were almost as yummy as when we make our own from scratch!

ABOUT THE BLOG
An apothecary is a person or a place. Either one implies healing and relates to pharmacy in its truest sense, as a source of treatment and advice.
This blog is my way of uniting my pharmacy training with my efforts to provide a healthy and safe lifestyle for my family. In true apothecary form, I research and prescribe alternative ingredients that work just right in each specific recipe, and I would like to share the results with anyone who needs help making their own family’s kitchen allergy safe and heart healthy.
