Gluten-Free Pancakes

These pancakes are much more filling than the traditional fluffly ones made with refined carbohydrate.  Since their base indgredients are a combination of flax seeds. pseudograins and coconut flour, they are packed with nourishment. I always like to add some protein powder. You can use any flavor you like.  Chocolate or Vanilla tastes great in this recipe.

You can add 2 tsps. of baking powder if you like fluffier pancakes.  I like them dense so I just omit it.

Top these with Agave nectar, Maple syrop, honey…whatever you like.  Or eat them just like that!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 cup fround flaxseeds
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 scoop protein powder-Optional
  • 2 tsp. baking powder-Optional
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. clove
  • 1 banana
  • 2 cups water

Instructions:

In a bowl, mix buckwheat flour, flaxseed, coconut flour, cinnamon, cloves (optional) and protein powder.

In a food processor, process the  banana and water while slowly adding the dry ingredients, until the mixture is smooth.

Lightly oil a pan with coconut oil and heat over medium heat. Pour in pancake batter to a desired pancake size and cook for about 3- 5 minutes or until bubbles begin to appear.  Flip and allow to cook for another 3- 5 minutes.
