Going Local with Seedy Steve Pancake Mixes - Made in Guelph!

Here at the Stone Store, we love supporting innovative local enterprises, and the latest has been Seedy Steve with his hearty Pancake mixes.

Steve Snoek created his signature pancake mix to offer a healthier alternative to bread for his family.  To do so, he went back to his Mom's classic pancake recipe, and started by reducing the wheat flour.  To make up the difference, he started experimenting with bulking up the rest of the recipe with healthy seeds.  He ended up adding buckwheat flour, poppy seeds, shredded coconut, ground flax, black chia seeds, and pumpkin seeds.  

The result?  A delicious hearty pancake, high in fibre, protein and with omega 3 fatty acids (the healthy fats) from chia, as well as 35% of your daily recommended intake of iron from the pumpkin seeds.  Yum!

Steve is constantly experimenting with using his mix to make other delicious goodies, like cookies, muffins, and chia snacks.  We think his muffins are a great alternative to a sugary snack- they are only as sweet as you choose to make them, with a pop of flavour from the blueberries.  Check out the recipe below to try them for yourself!

1 cup Seedy Steve's Pancake Mix
1 1/4 cup sweetened vanilla almond milk
1 egg
1 tbsp grapeseed (or other) oil
1/2 cup frozen blueberries

Mix all ingredients together.  Spoon into greased muffin tin (or use paper liners) and bake in a preheated 350F oven for 25-30minutes, or until a toothpick, inserted, comes out clean.  Enjoy!
