We have now declared Sunday Morning the official “pancake day”. These were so delicious…light, golden crisp outside, slightly sweet and a gentle spice from the pumpkin pie spice. Perfection. My daughter asked for seconds.
I had tried to make her gluten free pancakes in the past, and I’ll be the first to admit, they were somewhat crappy. I would go through mixing all the flours and spend all this time mixing the batter and sure enough, she wouldn’t eat them.
At our last campout we ate breakfast at the Manatee Cafe in St Augustine. It’s a little hole in the wall place that has some of the best food I’ve tasted; they use fresh and high quality ingredients, and have quite a few vegan and vegetarian options. When we asked if they could make egg, dairy and gluten free pancakes, and they said YES, we were floored. She actually ate them! I asked them for the recipe and the waiter said it was the Bob’s Red Mill mix.
Channeling my inner Sandra Lee, I used a semi-home made shortcut and whipped these up yesterday. They were met with such success that we can’t wait until next Sunday.
Top these with whatever you like. I used bananas, real maple syrup and some whole flax seeds for crunch. Enjoy!
