Pancakes and Almond Milk!
 I love breakfast for dinner, especially pancakes!  I came across this recipe on Averie's site a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to give them a try.  I am always on the lookout for gluten free ideas, as well as, recipes that incorporate healthier ingredients!  These pancakes taste like a bowl of banana oatmeal in a pancake form.  I added a little more oatmeal since I was afraid the batter was a little too thin and I only used banana (no apples).  I also used the new Silk Almond Milk I found at the store.  Served with a smear of EarthBalance and real maple syrup (and bacon for my men), this was a great breakfast for dinner!  Go check it out!
Now, for my thoughts on the Silk Almond Milk...to start off with, I was really excited to see this product on the shelf since the store was out of my favorite Almond Breeze Almond Milk.  It is always nice to have an alternative. 
I like the stats on it. 
Most people don't understand that you can get calcium and vitamin D from other sources besides cows milk.  Oh and look, no saturated fat...and lower in sugar...and no cholesterol.  Seriously, why do more people not drink this stuff?
Ok, now for how it tastes compared to our favorite around here...well, this is the illustrator's bowl of apple cinnamon brown sugar oats.  I always give things to him without telling him they are different.  It is a game we/I play with him.  He asked me immediately if this was the usual almond milk.  I asked why and he informed me that it did not taste the same.  I asked if he liked it more or less?  He said he prefers the other one, but this one was not bad.  So, there you have it...the Almond Breeze is prefered, but it is comforting to know there is an alternative that is comperable in price and easy to find!
