Pancakes for Rowan!
Despite all his dietary limitations, Rowan doesn't really complain much about not getting to eat many regular foods by mouth, even though everyone else around him can. He does however LOVE to smell our food. And pancakes has been the one thing that he says he hopes he can have when he gets in heaven...he just thinks they smell so great. Well I have racked my brain for 2 years, checked all kinds of recipes and natural food stores, trying to figure out a way to make him some type of pancake. So he doesn't have to wait to get to heaven to have pancakes:-) He can't have any type of protien for sure, and no eggs, milk, or any type of flour, etc. So, I have thought about potato pancakes but haven't come up with a way to make them stick together like pancake batter. Well, last week I finally came across a product that is a mix for potato pancakes, but this one only has potato starch to bind it together. I was jumping up and down in the aisle when I read the ingredients. You have no idea how happy I was! Rowan cried happy tears when I got home. I made them and he has been eating them for a week now. Pancakes, finally, pancakes for Rowan!
