But, foods that are high in Omega-3 help to increase mood, fight against depression, provide antioxidants, decrease inflammation and may actually increase life expectancy.

Gluten-Free Pancakes & Vegan...DELICIOUS

Posted by Danielle Parish on May 6, 2012 at 8:30 PM Comments comments (0)


Yummy Gluten-Free Pancakes, Vegan, Egg-Free & Dairy Free.  They are so yummy and delicious.  Everyone will be surprised they are Gluten-Free & Vegan.  Also they are so easy to make.  This recipe makes about 8-9 waffles, depending on how big you make them.  They are great.  Make them today. 


Ingredients

1 1/4 cups All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour Blend

2 tablespoons white sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt (I like Salt that has Iodine in it.)

1 1/4 cups Vanilla Almond Milk 

1 tablespoon oil

1/3 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1/2 teaspoon of Almond Extract


Directions


1.  Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Whisk the Almond Milk, oil, vanilla extract and Almond Extract together in a small bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour in the wet. Stir just until blended; mixture will be lumpy.


2.  Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat.  Make sure you lower heat as you add more pancakes to griddle/pan because the pancakes will start cooking faster. Pour batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle, and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry. Flip, and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter. There is a recipe here to make your own All-Purpose Gluten-free pancake flour mix.
