Cultures For Health is a company dedicated to making homemade cultured and fermented foods easier and more accessible. Their website has a marketplace to shop all sorts of starter cultures from sourdough to yogurt, kombucha, tempeh, cheese, and more. They also have tons of information for beginners and recipes to get inspiration.
How are sourdough pancakes different?
Because sourdough starter is a fermented food, using it for pancakes creates a unique, slightly tangy flavor just like sourdough bread has. This makes them a great way to switch up your typical weekend breakfast and try something new. Sourdough pancakes are not quite as sweet as normal pancakes, which makes them a great base for adding maple syrup and all your usual favorite toppings. We added blueberries and bananas to ours. Dark chocolate chips, apple slices, and peanut butter would also pair perfectly with these pancakes.
Sourdough pancakes and gut health
Fermented foods like sourdough are great for gut health as they are full of probiotics, or good bacteria. The good bacteria found in fermented foods aid in the digestion of complex carbs, work to fight off “bad” bacteria that can cause illnesses, and help your body create some of the essential vitamins for your health.
Willa's Oat Milk and prebiotic fiber
At Willa’s, we use the whole entire whole grain oat rather than discarding it in the oat milk-making process like other plant milks on the market do. Because of this, Willa’s has a deliciously creamy consistency with an amazing oat flavor. By using the whole oat, you are getting all of the oat’s natural prebiotic fiber when you drink Willa’s. Prebiotic fiber is also great for maintaining a stable bacteria balance for gut health, making these sourdough pancakes with Willa’s an overall great source of good bacteria for your morning breakfast!
