Mini Pumpkin Spiced Breakfast Cakes, Gluten Free, Paleo


Breakfast has always been my favorite meal during the day. I love waking up and being able to fill my empty stomach with delicious food. How many of us walk out the door without eating breakfast because we are either in a rush or do not know how to? We want to make a healthy breakfast, but have no time to do so. However, Birch Benders pancake/waffle mixes may save the day. I have never been a boxed pancake/waffle mix kinda girl. I love making everything by scratch, being able to mix all the ingredients together and see the transformation. Nevertheless, I was SHOCKED by how good Birch Benders’ mixes are. They are simple to make and so delicious.

I love being able to tell the story of a brand. Birch Benders was created in the hopes of bringing people together to share a delightful meal. The mixes are made to decrease the process of cooking to allow us to slow down and enjoy the time with our loved ones or by ourselves. The two owners, Matt LaCasse and Lizzi Ackerman, started the company right after graduating college, moving to Colorado and getting married. Their goal is create products that are of high quality, convenient and tasty.

So what is Birch Bending?

“Birches are slender yet supple trees that will bend down and return you to the ground when you climb them, like a fishing pole under the weight of a catch. As a young boy in Maine, [the] founder Matt spent his summers bending birches. Years later, he would carry that same playful spirit to his love of pancake-making, and eventually, to the brand he hoped to share with the world.” To learn more head over here.
