Gluten Free Pancakes

by - Friday, November 23, 2018

I can't express to you how excited I am about this recipe! I attempted making a different batch of Gluten Free pancakes the other day, using Coconut Flour, and it was a total fail. These ones however, were definitely a success! I asked via Instagram last weekend for peoples GF pancake recipes, and I was flooded with comments and messages with SO many different recipes to try! One of them was this one, and I'm really happy with it. I found the recipe here, but I decided to halve it.

Gluten Free food is something we've never really had to deal with, so it's been a bit of a learning curve. For at least six months now, April's skin has been getting really dry. It's been getting worse and worse, and no creams have helped. We took her to the doctor and was told that she's got eczema. They gave us a script for not one, but TWO large tubes of Steroid cream. She said that Aprils skin was quite bad, so we'd need a lot of it. It was covering her body!

We weren't too keen to actually use the Steroid cream on her, so as well as keeping up with soothing lotions, we popped her on a pro-biotic, and we've altered her diet to see if that helps. She is currently on a Gluten and Dairy Free diet, and that actually seems to be working! Her skin has improved dramatically, and thank goodness, because prior to the last week, every time I changed her nappy I wanted to cry!

Our poor little April just wants to eat everything that her big sister eats, but unfortunately she can't anymore! She is a little fuss-pot, so finding food that she will actually eat has been hard. I am pleased to say though, she LOVES these mini pancakes! They are filling, gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, low GI and totally healthy for her. They are such a good size for her too, like little pikelets. I whipped this batch up and cooked them, all whilst carrying April on my hip the entire time! So easy.

Definitely give these a go!

1/2 cup of Oats
2 Eggs
1 Banana

1/2 Banana
Maple Syrup

First mill the Oats. I used my Thermo (speed 10 for 5-10 seconds) but you can use a food processor. Add your banana and eggs, and blend together (speed 6 for 30 seconds). Scrape down from sides if you need, and blend for another few seconds. Pour mixture out into a bowl and wait a few minutes for it to thicken slightly.

Pop a frying pan on medium-high heat. Oil the pan in whichever way you prefer. Add two tablespoons of batter onto the pan to make one pancake. Spread the mixture into a circular shape with the back of the spoon. Cook a couple at a time. Fry for approximately 30-60 seconds on each side, or until they go golden.

Serve with desired toppings!
Lots of possibilities with this recipe. I think I'll try some blueberries in my next batch! Let me know how you go.
