New Pancake Recipe and Verses and Benjamin

May 20, 2008 at 9:08 pm (*) (, , , )

If you can imagine, I have found a new pancake recipe that I love.  It is super simple, and extra delicious.  This one is courtesy Bob’s Red Mill.

  • 2 cups Teff flour (an Ethiopian, gluten-free grain!!)
  • 4 tsp baking powder (gluten-free)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 T vegetable oil

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.  Add liquid ingredients and whisk.  Cook on a griddle over medium heat.  (Because there are no eggs, they cook quite quickly on each side)

Tonight, I added coconut and flax meal, and we topped ours with strawberries and our pure maple syrup/agave mix.  The kids loved them.

Now, about those verses.  Psalm 139:14 says,

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

And Philippians 1:6 says,

“Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

The first is factual.  We ARE fearfully and wonderfully made.  It doesn’t say that we might be.  It says that we are.  The second verse is a promise.  He WILL carry on the good work he has started in us.

So, why recipes (gluten-free!), verses, and Benjamin?  Because we have recently found that Benjamin is gluten-intolerant (and probably possibly dairy or casein intolerant).  And because God’s word promises that Benjamin is fearfully and wonderfully made.  Even with a simple protein intolerance.  And God’s word also promises that He will carry on a good work in Benjamin’s life.  He will carry it on to completion, even in the midst of a crazy-strict new diet.  Even in the midst of a world filled with gluten and casein!  (I also think this means he will carry on a good work through Jarid, Kaiya, and myself!!!)

Someday, I may write about our journey to that discovery.  For now, suffice it to say that this a brand new boy.  No lie.

We covet your prayers as we take on a new giant.

Feel free to comment or email me if you are interested in hearing more or have questions.  There will definitely be more to come on this particular issue.

All boy...all dirt!
