Happy back-to-school everyone! I don’t know about you, but I'm struggling with saying goodbye to our leisure summer mornings and hello to a more hurried start to our days. In hopes of making the transition easier, I have been giving some thought to quick breakfasts. One I will turn to often will be frozen Saturday Pancakes (gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free). Just pop 'em in the toaster and serve them up with some almond butter, fruit and non-dairy yogurt (make your own). Voila, done!
For a handful of great allergen-free school lunch ideas, check out my friend’s recent post Allergy Lunchbox with Brain Power. I’ve printed it and taped it to my fridge. Thanks Kim!
Saturday Pancakes (A Lexie’s Kitchen previous post)
In blender, blend on medium for 30 seconds:
2 tablespoons FLAX MEAL
6 tablespoons WATER
Add to blender in the following order:
2 tablespoons light OLIVE OIL
1/4 cup liquefied HONEY
1 tablespoon gluten-free VANILLA EXTRACT
3/4 cup WATER
1-1/2 cups BOB’S RED MILL ALL-PURPOSE GLUTEN-FREE FLOUR (can't find it? try this flour mix)
1/2 teaspoon SEA SALT
1/2 teaspoon BAKING SODA
Blend at medium speed until combined. Pour batter onto a griddle heated to 275-300˚F. When bubbles appear and begin bursting on surface, flip pancakes and cook until undersides are golden. Serve immediately. Freeze any leftovers and reheat in toaster.
