Charcuterie boards are all the rage. Actually, a modern twist to charcuterie is all the rage. Back in ancient times, we called these “meat and cheese platters”. The fancy French always called this a charcuterie. And now, woke folk want to charcuterie everything.
Which is fine by us. Because it involves foods and drinks. Hot cocoa charcuterie boards; waffle charcuterie boards; taco charcuterie boards… You get it. The latest? Pancake charcuterie boards.
So why not enjoy a yummy Christmas-morning-breakfast idea with a healthy twist? Orgain has an organic plant-based protein waffle and pancake mix that will take some of the guilt out of overindulging.
Slap this on your board:
Holiday Spice Pancakes
Avocado oil spray
1 cup Orgain Organic Plant-Based Protein Pancake & Waffle Mix - Gluten Free
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
Dash each of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves
For serving: chopped dates, walnuts, maple syrup
(Note: For vegan option just combime 1/4 cup pancake mix with 1/3 cup water)
Warm a skillet over medium heat with a little bit of avocado oil.
In a large mixing bowl, combine Pancake & Waffle Mix, milk, egg, and spice mixture and blend with a fork until well combined. Spoon 1/4 of mixture onto the skillet and cook until bubbles form on top, about 2-3 minutes, flip and continue to cook until golden brown, about 2 more minutes. Repeat until all of the pancake mix has been used.
While the pancakes are cooking, chop your dates and walnuts.
To assemble, transfer the pancakes to a large plate or cutting board and place the dates and nuts in bowls so family can create their own stack.
