One of my favorite meals to make for my family is pancakes – in fact I used to make them for dinner at least one night a week, especially when the boys had late sports practices. The sad part was that I couldn’t eat the pancakes, too. I am sensitive to dairy, and everyone knows pancakes need milk in them.
I was pleased to discover that The a2 Milk Company™ makes the only fluid milk sold in the US that is free of the A1 protein, which is a protein made by domesticated cows that can irritate some people’s digestive systems, causing bloating and discomfort.
You can buy a2 Milk® at Ralph’s for $4.49 per half gallon – click here for a coupon!
The a2 Milk Company™ has carefully selected cows that produce milk with only the A2 protein. They actually have The a2 System™, the process they use to establish a True a2™ certified herd, that is kept separate from the other cows to make sure the milk they produce is free of the A1 protein. Their milk is growth-hormone and antibiotic-free, too.
My family tried a2 Milk® and I made these tummy-friendly pancakes with a delicious holiday-time flavor AND a cute presentation. We all enjoyed the rich, sweet taste of the milk. My younger son took a big sip, exclaimed surprise since it was so different from the milk he drank before, and then gulped the rest of the glass right down!
Tummy-Friendly Reindeer Pancakes
Beat milk, egg, pumpkin and vanilla together in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, combine sugar and baking mix. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry with a wooden spoon until they are just combined.
Heat a teaspoon of olive oil on a skillet at medium heat, swirl it around the surface with a spatula to coat. When skillet is hot drop batter by the large spoonful to create small circles. Cook for approximately 2 minutes or until the top bubbles, then flip. Cook until the second side is golden brown.
Bacon for the antlers
Dairy-free chocolate chips (or blueberries) for the eyes
Raspberry for the nose
“Glue” eyes and nose to the pancakes with a little smear of pumpkin butter
I am happy to report that everyone’s tummies, even mine, were comfortably full after eating these pancakes. They might make a return appearance on Christmas morning!
