Gluten Free Pancakes / Waffles
I just love this easy recipe, gluten free pancakes they come to my rescue from the freezer when I have need of a delicious quick dessert. Or for a snack with a cup of coffee.
We have been eating Gluten Free for some time now. This not because we have coeliac disease, we just try to avoid gluten and limit other grains and carbohydrates, especially sugar as these tend to cause inflammation in the body. There is more and more evidence that cutting these items from the diet is beneficial, some neurologists claim that this inflammation is irritating to the brain and may be involved in dementia. Suffice to say that we do feel a lot younger and more alert since we made these changes to our diet.Delicious gluten free pancakes or waffle recipe it has no grains and is low in carbohydrates Click To Tweet
What you will need – A waffle maker or frypan (skillet)
Gluten free pancakes recipe Ingredients
- Eggs – 3
- Organic coconut flour – 4 rounded tablespoons
- Baking powder – 1 teaspoon
- Water – half a cup or more
- Salt – pinch
- An update to my original recipe – add Guar Gum – 1/2 teaspoon This makes the cooked waffle hold together better if you like your waffles thinner.
Note: If I am making a double mix I use 7 eggs for a better consistency.
Gluten free pancakes recipe – Method
- Using a jug mix all the ingredients with a stick mixer or blender of your choice. You may need to add extra water to keep the mixture pourable, don’t have it too thick. Coconut flour absorbs a lot of moisture so you may need to keep adding a little water.
- Grease the pan with coconut oil
3. Pour the mixture into the waffle maker or pan (about half a cup full at a time.)
Cook until golden brown.
Top with sliced strawberries, blueberries or other fruit. Add cream, coconut cream or nut cream. If your carbohydrate count is not too high a little maple syrup will do wonders.
