It would seem that I’m not the only one in this house having to avoid some favorite foods.
The Hubster also recently tested for a few sensitivities. Sensitivities that are causing him headaches, indigestion, and fatigue. Sensitivities to some of his favorite dietary staples like gluten, eggs, and garlic.
Basically knocking out every single breakfast item that he consumes. On a daily basis.
And because I’m a good wife, I decided to find him a suitable breakfast alternative.
I have to say I was a bit intimidated to take this on. I’m beyond horrible at making pancakes. Mine always end up burnt on the outside and raw on the inside. Not to mention that gluten free baking just makes my head spin.
Thank goodness for the internet and for posts like this from xgfx.com and this one from Daily Dietribe.
If you would have told me a week ago that there was a gluten-free pancake that was moist and fluffy, that I could make…
I would have told you that you had a screw or two loose.
But these. THESE pancakes. Are almost fail proof. Are the perfect addition to your fall breakfast menu. Are just. plain. awesome.
Just be warned that the recipe makes more pancakes than you can shake a stick at. I would recommend halving the recipe if you don’t want to have to freeze them.
(We’re still waiting to find out how the frozen ones taste. I’ll keep you posted.)
Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pancakes
- 2 cups garbanzo bean chickpea flour
- 1/2 cup tapioca starch or flour
- 1/2 cup brown rice flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tbs organic, raw sugar
- 1 3/4 cup water more if needed
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tbs vinegar
- cooking oil canola, coconut
Heat skillet over low to medium heat.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk to combine dry ingredients: garbanzo bean flour, tapioca starch, rice flour, baking soda and sugar.
Add in water and pumpkin puree. Stir to combine.
Add in vinegar right before cooking—it will activate the baking soda and help make pancakes light and fluffy.
Spoon pancake batter into frying pan, about 2-4 tbs per pancake.
Once edges start to brown and bubbles form through the pancake, flip and cook on the other side. About 1-2 minutes, depending on size.
Serve hot with your favorite toppings!
If making the entire batch, you may want to place cooked pancakes in a warm oven (200F) until done.
If you have leftovers, the pancakes can be frozen and reheated in a toaster oven or microwave for another delicious meal.
