Ingredients for Homemade Pancakes

Organic Salted Butter
I use organic salted butter for these pancakes as it provides flavor! If you don't have salted butter, and only have unsalted, just add 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt to the recipe.

Organic All Purpose Flour
All purpose flour is the most common kind of flour, and it works great for pancakes. If you don't usually buy organic, I will tell you that organic all purpose flour can sometimes even be less expensive than some brands of regular flour, take a look next time you are shopping! Even if you buy a grocery store brand, like O Organics – it makes a difference (plus, I actually love that flour, I buy it all the time!).

Organic Cane Sugar
Pancakes don't have a ton of sugar, which is a good thing because you eat them with maple syrup! But, there is a small amount of organic cane sugar used in this recipe.

Baking Powder
Baking powder is key for pancakes, as it is what makes them rise and become super fluffy! I prefer use aluminum free baking powder from Frontier Co-Op. Baking powder stays good for about 6 months once opened, so make sure your baking powder is still good.

Organic Eggs
Eggs also help pancakes rise, as well as provide fat, flavor and structure to hold the pancakes together. I use large eggs, which weigh about 50 grams. If you don't have large eggs and only have medium or extra-large then be sure to crack it, whisk it, and weigh it so you have the correct amount for the recipe.

Organic Milk
Make sure you are using whole milk, this is true for any baking or cooking.

Organic Vanilla Extract
I use Simply Organic Vanilla Extract as it's my fave. Vanilla extract provides pancakes with flavor, always use a high quality organic vanilla extract, all brands will taste a little different so make sure to find one that you like the flavor of. Never use imitation vanilla extract.

Organic Canola Oil Cooking Spray
I like to use canola oil cooking spray for pancakes, as I cook each pancake individually, so the skillet is hot for a while. Butter can brown and also burn, which will affect the flavor of the pancakes, which is why I use canola oil cooking spray. You can also use canola oil, coconut oil, or avocado oil as those are all high heat oils. If you only have butter, just be sure to wipe out the skillet with a paper towel in between each pancake.

Why Use Organic Ingredients in Pancakes

When it comes to food, organic ingredients have gained quite the reputation for being a healthier option. While it may be more expensive to choose organic ingredients, it’s definitely worth the investment, especially if you’re going to indulge in pancakes. Here’s why:

1. No Harmful Chemicals: Organic ingredients are grown without the use of harmful chemicals, such as pesticides, fertilizers, and GMOs. These chemicals can cause harm to your body over time, and avoiding them can contribute to better overall health.

2. Better Nutrient Content: Organic ingredients have higher nutrient content than non-organic ingredients, making them a healthier choice. When it comes to flour, organic flour is often more nutritious because it's not processed as heavily as non-organic flour.

3. Better for the Environment: Choosing organic ingredients also helps reduce the impact on the environment. Organic farming practices promote soil health, conserve water, and support biodiversity. By choosing organic ingredients, you are supporting sustainable farming practices and contributing to a healthier planet.

By using organic ingredients in your pancakes, you’re not only enjoying a delicious breakfast treat, but you’re also making a conscious effort towards a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle!

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here.
