Show your Canadian pride (hey, we are celebrating 150 years!) and amp up your baking with third generation Canadian milled flour and Canadian maple syrup. Breakfast was never so patriotic. Oh Canada!
Pancakes: Nunweiler’s Flour Company
By now, we all know that we should cut down on our consumption of refined products – focusing on whole grains instead. The trick is to incorporate whole grains into your diet so you don’t miss any of your favourites. Make Saturday morning pancakes even healthier with third generation, family-owned Nunweiler’s Flour Company’s Grandma Nunweiler’s old fashioned Whole Grain Pancake and Waffle Mix (see recipe below).
Canadian grown grain is milled at low temperatures, ensuring that there are more nutrients in the end product. The result? A sweet almost nutty taste, that is both delicious and nutrient rich and perfect for everyday baking. The beautifully packaged, certified organic flour is also available in several high protein, low gluten ancient grain varieties (including Kamut Khorasan, red fife, spelt) as well as dark rye, buckwheat, whole wheat and all purpose. Several grain ‘kernel’ varieties are also available.
Maple Syrup: 1769 distillery
Is there anything more Canadian than maple syrup? Take it to the next level with 1769 Distillery Quebec maple syrup aged in oak barrels once used for Kentucky bourbon. Drizzle on pancakes or steamed pudding for a divine experience where caramel flavours are accented by vanilla and bourbon. If the eye-catching wax seal, and batch number don’t tell you this is something special, the taste sure will. Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup, 375ml, $36.95.
