Gluten free, Soy free, vegan pancakes
This is a gluten free, soy free, vegan pancake cooked in coconut oil with maple syrup on top.
The pancake mix is from Rob Mills. I didn't exactly follow the instructions.
I put in some water and olive oil and mixed it until it was runny. Not quite a crepe but not a thick pancake mixture either.
I find the trick for making good gluten free pancakes is to make them thin. Then you can top them with whatever you want...strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, bananas, pineapple, or oranges.
Keeping frozen berries in the freezer is not only great for smoothies but for putting in the pancake mix.
If you mix it with flavored milks like almond/soy you can have a different flavored pancake.
Pancakes can be a great plan B meal. If everything falls apart at the end of the day and you just don't have time for anything. Just make the family pancakes and load it up on fruit. Yummy food can be so comforting at the end of a crazy day.
