You ever just have a taste for something and you won't be satisfied until you get it? This morning it was like that for me. I really really wanted pancakes. We have eliminating wheat from our diet and I have to say that I feel good not eating it. Since we aren't eating wheat I needed to find a good recipe for pancakes. I already use my own mix of gluten flour for when I make my brownies but I didn't know if that would work as a straight out substitute in a regular white flour recipe. So as to not re-create the wheel. I opted to look for another food blog who had a recipe. I came across Elana's Pantry Silver Dollar Pancakes. I have to say there were delicious! Oh, and if you are doing the Paleo diet, these fit that as well!
Gluten Free Pancakes
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons honey
1-1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
a small amount of coconut oil for the pan
In a large bowl whisk together eggs, water, vanilla and honey. Add almond flour, salt and baking soda. Mix until all ingredients are combined. Heat coconut oil in a skillet or flat pan over medium heat. Add batter about 2 tablespoons onto skillet. When bubbles form on pancakes, flip them, cook until done. Regulate heat as necessary so that they won't burn. Remove to a plate and serve with sliced bananas and maple syrup. I also used a blueberry sauce that was imported from France. The sauce is made from blueberries and grape juice. No added sugars or other ingredients.
I also served this with some cooked breakfast sausage links that came from our local farm.
