Hello! How’s everyone doing this week? I’m amazed to be back this Wednesday with another Breakfast and a Book post. I found this wonderful recipe for gluten free pancakes that I tweaked up a bit and had to share! The original recipe is from Chef Rosa on YouTube (be sure to check her out), but I changed this one up quite a bit and used what I had on hand. These came out like French toast! I hope you guys are ready for a delicious gluten free, dairy free, egg free pancake!
Gluten Free/Dairy Free/Egg Free Cherry Pancakes
- 1 cup gluten-free flour
- 1 TB baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 TB sugar (I used brown)
- 1/4 banana
- 1/2 to 1 TB coconut oil
- 1 TB vanilla
- 1 1/4 cups almond milk
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- A scant handful of cherries
Mix all the dry ingredients together. Add in your vanilla, coconut oil, and banana and mash it all in a bit.
I used a very ripe banana which was easy to mash. If yours isn’t soft, just mash it ahead of time. Add in your milk little by little until you have a nice pancake batter that’s not to thin and is easy to work with.
Drop by scoopfuls into a greased pan. I greased with butter first to make my children’s because they don’t have an issue with butter. For myself (and to keep these dairy free) I use coconut oil. I like to use a large ice cream scoop which is easy and makes a nice round cake.
Add on your cherries…
After a few minutes a they start to get golden around the edges, flip.
and cook a few minutes more. I was between low and medium heat for these to avoid burning.
Serve these with fresh cherries and maple syrup. They’re absolutely delicious and taste like French toast with sweet cherries. Promise! ❤
I had these with Tazo’s glazed lemon loaf tea and all-natural chicken sausage links from Costco…
I tripled the recipe. I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Flour, organic red cherries, and homemade almond milk which consists of almonds and water made in the Vitamix. You can see that in a previous post if you’d like to make it. Just type in ‘almond milk’ in the search bar.
To pit the cherries I just cut them in half and take out the pit with my thumb.
This week’s book:
The Doggie in the Window: How One Beloved Dog Opened My Eyes to the Complicated Story Behind Man’s Best Friend
When Rory Kress began to wonder where her beloved Wheaten Terrier, Izzie, had really come from, she had no idea of the horrors she would uncover. With stunning insight and tenacity, Kress launches an investigation into the harsh realities of the American dog-breeding industry, exposing troubling ties to factory farming and big agriculture.
From a pet shop on Long Island to the puppy mills of rural Missouri, from the author’s own living room to a ride-along with a dog rescue organization, The Doggie in the Window is a must-read for all dog owners and a call to action for improving the lives of man’s best friend
My thoughts so far…
I requested this on Edelweiss a while ago and finally started reading it a few days ago. We purchased a puppy from a puppy store many years ago that had a myriad of problems. When my friend explained to me that she was likely from a puppy mill, I was so ignorant and had no idea what she was talking about. It wasn’t until after the entire fiasco that I learned what puppy mills were and how they affect these poor canines.
I’m amazed at how thorough it is so far and feel like this is going to be a 5-star read. I’m around 20% of the way through and most of what I’ve read covers what puppy mills are and the laws that keep them in place. The author is very thorough with the details and laws that breeders must follow. It’s a lot to take in, but so worth it.
