Cooking with essential oils - gluten free high protein pancakes and wild orange buttermilk syrup

High Protein Pancakes

High Protein Pancakes (gluten free)

2 c cottage cheese
6 eggs
4 T agave or honey
2 t vanilla
2 t baking powder
½ t salt
1 c uncooked rolled oats (quick or old fashioned are fine)
½ c uncooked quinoa
1 drop Cinnamon essential oil
1 drop Wild Orange essential oil

Put all ingredients in a high powered blender. Blend on high for about a minute. Make silver dollar size pancakes on a griddle at 325 degrees.

Wild Orange Buttermilk Syrup

1/2 c unsalted butter
3/4 c brown sugar
3/4 c granulated sugar
3/4 c buttermilk
2 T brown rice syrup (can also use corn syrup)

1 t baking soda
2 t vanilla
2 drops Wild Orange essential oil

Put butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, buttermilk and brown rice syrup in a medium-large pot. You don't want to use a small one because this will bubble over. Melt everything together and bring to a boil. When it reaches a boil turn it down so it's a low boil. Boil at a low boil for 6 minutes. Remove from heat and add essential oil, vanilla and baking soda. The mixture will bubble and foam so wisk quickly. Continue to wisk for several minutes until the foam is all gone and you're left with a caramel syrup. You can put over pancakes, waffles, ice cream or whatever you want.
