*This was my first time using barley flour and it gave a nutty flavour to the pancakes. Try the recipe!

I had a barley pancake and barley drink for breakfast. One word to describe the meal, 'YUMMY!'

    1. Thanks! :) Try it if you can eat the ingredients that are used.

    2. Not yet, but someday hopefully! I will let you know!

    3. Yes, I await your good news! :)

  2. They look yummy, but barley groats sounds bizarrely unappetizing. I've never heard of barley groats. I can eat the sea salt and the eggs and that's it. I think it's so interesting our diets are opposite.

    1. It SOUNDS gross but it is not! Try it! Hehe...
