▻ Avocado Gluten Free Pancakes (makes around 8 pancakes)
Ingredients:
– 1 tbsp Becel with Avocado Oil

– ½ coconut Milk
– 1 tbsp of dehydrated green (optional)
– 1 tbsp lemon juice

– 1 pinch of salt
– 1 chia seed egg (to make this you combine 1 tbsp of chia and 2 tbsp of water and let sit for a couple of minutes)

Mix all ingredients together in a blender and blend until smooth. I typically put 3 tablespoons of the mix per pancake and fry for about 3-4 minutes on each side. You can add kefir or yogurt and berries of your choice on top along with some dark maple syrup. Serve and enjoy.

▻ Strawberry Avocado Cucumber Salad (makes 3-4 servings)
