Fluffy Gluten Free Pancakes

Another Friday- another week almost under our belts. What are your fun weekend plans?

I plan on being not nearly as productive as I was last weekend. I've been sick this week and so my motivation levels are a little bit on the low side. I think I'm over the worst of it though, but in all honesty I'll probably just work on my blanket (which is coming along well!) and cuddle with my baby all weekend. Sounds productive enough to me.

Today I want to share a recipe that has quickly become a favorite at our house. I LOVE pancakes, and lately I've been craving breakfast for all three meals of the day. Since making the switch to eating gluten free, however, I've struggled to find a recipe on Pinterest or in cookbooks that actually lives up to the glutenfull-fluffy-melt-in-your-mouth-pancakes that I was used to. Kind of a let down. But I would never let a small road block like that get in the way of my undying pancake love- or my pregnancy cravings for breakfast food.

I started to experiment with recipes and tweak things that I didn't like about them. There were some inedible failures, trust me. But in the end I think I came up with something that we all love and I hope you will too! AJ says he likes them better than my normal, "glutenfull" pancakes we used to make, so that should tell you something ;) My man likes his pancakes too.

Give them a try this weekend!

Ingredients: (makes about 4 servings)

- 2 cups almond flour (or regular wheat flour)

- 3 eggs

- 1/2 cup coconut milk (or any kind of milk you prefer- we use coconut so Evie can eat them too)

- 1 1/2 tbsp coconut sugar or honey

- 1 tsp baking soda

- 1 tsp baking powder

- Pinch of salt

- 1/2 tsp of cinnamon (optional)

- Fresh berries or chocolate chips

1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients.

2. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and milk.

3. Slowly whisk the wet ingredients into the almond flour mixture.

4. Drop about 1/4 cup of the batter onto a hot, greased skillet and add the fillings of your choice. We love blueberries and chocolate chips.

5. Allow to cook for a few minutes- flip- repeat :) You know the drill.

There you have it! Give them a try and let me know what you think!

Happy weekend, friends.
