I'm pleased to write about my latest success recipe!
I don't know about you but I personally hate spending hours in the grocery store looking at ingredients on packages to make sure they are safe for me to eat (which caused my last upset stomach with the pancake mix I bought!)
Some people just don't understand how frustrating the food limitations are when you're a celiac; they think we can just cut down to one slice of bread once in awhile and the occasional muffin or cookie and we'll be okay!
Unfortunately it doesn't work that way, and it's not like we're being picky; far from it! I would LOVE to make a big pan of my epically cheesy lasagne and chow down on it but the pain is not worth it!
For me personally I experience crippling abdominal pain followed my 72 hours of flu like symptoms!
It's no fun being out of commision for three days; not only do I feel like absolute garbage but I also lose out on my paycheque depending on when the flare up happens!
Looking for gluten free food in the grocery store is also useless I have found; most pre packaged "gluten free" foods that are sold contain corn, rice or soy which can cause a severe reaction in some people.
I read it all the time in my support group posts people say they haven't had any wheat gluten but are having reactions when they buy pre packaged "gluten free" foods.
This is why I started this blog almost 3 years ago; to share helpful information and recipes with other people that are suffering from the effects of Celiac DIsease
After going through my many gluten free cookbooks in my quest for pancake mix I came up with one that even my gluten loving nephew likes :) 1/2 each of coconut, almond, teff, buckwheat and arrowroot flours; place in a large jar and stir thoroughly with a whisk.
For the pancakes use:
1 cup of the flour mix,
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1 tbsp of organic vanilla
1 cup of grass fed milk,
Use an electric mixer or hand blender for 2 minutes and make them the way you would normally make pancakes. The texture is awesome, almost like an English Muffin but still has the taste of a pancake.
Normally I would have a picture of my latest creation ( I will add one next time I make them) but since I didn't write this recipe down I wanted to get it up on the blog before I forgot it lol!
I hope at least a couple of people try out this recipe and have the same great results that I have and if so, please share in the comment section below!
Till next blog!
