Breakfast Recipes for (Stomach Rhythm) Heartburn

Breakfast Recipes for (Stomach Rhythm) Heartburn
The following heartburn recipes are designed to aid digestion for individuals whose heartburn is caused by abnormal stomach rhythm and emptying (antro-duodenal motility). (If you are sensitive to ginger or cinnamon, these recipes will more than likely cause a flare-up, so if you would like to try them, simply eliminate the spices. See my article The Acid Reflux – GERD - Heartburn Recipe Myth to find out why not all “heartburn” recipes are effective for everyone!

Tips: Healthy alternatives to popular ingredients are listed. You can find white whole wheat flour (a delicate, finely ground whole wheat flour) in the flour section of the supermarket. Spelt and Quinoa (pr. Keen-wah) flour and alternative sweeteners are available at health food stores or online. Bon appetite!

  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 well beaten egg yolks
  • 2 cups milk

  • 2 stiffly beaten egg whites

    In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients. In a small bowl, mix egg yolks and milk. Pour over dry ingredients and mix well. Stir in butter and apple. Fold in egg whites. Let stand for a few minutes.

    Measure 1/3 cup batter per pancake, and pour onto hot, buttered griddle. Spread evenly with spatula. (Add a sprinkle of chopped walnuts if you like!) Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until pancakes develop a bubbly surface and slightly dry edges. Turn and cook ‘til golden brown.

    Dot each with butter (sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar for an extra treat!) and roll up. Eat plain, or drizzle lightly with honey or real maple syrup, or use as dippers. Yum!
