It’s Autumn and this means one thing, pumpkin spiced everything!!
I created these gluten free pumpkin spiced pancakes on a weekend and topped with the glorious Biotiful Dairy Kefir. I was challenged by Biotiful Diary to make simple swaps with my food, to add more kefir to my diet. This is an example of a way of using kefir in a sweet dish.
Kefir is full of good bacteria for your gut, is high in protein and has no added sugar. It really is the dream!!

- 3 Teaspoons Gluten Free Baking Powder
