Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes

It’s freezing cold here, and it’s been raining for …of you know…just the last 7 days!

And with the school holidays we have had extra kids popping in to play with our kids, and today everyone became a bit CRAZY and decided to run up and down the hallway making nosies that would be better off made…oh I don’t know…at someone else’s house! 

As a calm down activity we made a delicious batch of pancakes, using the last banana and a handful of frozen blueberries. 

 

I wondered how they would taste to the group of kids visiting as they aren’t gluten and dairy free kids.  BUT no one noticed and they all asked for seconds. 

GREAT!!! I love a recipe that is for everyone!

I love this recipe, it is dairy, wheat and gluten free so you don’t get that heavy foggy feeling like you do after eating regular pancakes.  Plus They are really low sugar, I just used a little coconut sugar as a sweetener along with the banana, because we were just eating them plain with out a topping.

 

You could leave the coconut sugar out, and just have them with a little honey or berry jam.  The blueberries give these pancakes a delicious pop of flavour, and the would be just as good served cold in lunch boxes…if they last that long!

 

Gluten Free Blueberry Pancakes

 

Ingredients: 

2 beaten eggs

1 mashed ripe banana

1 cup of almond or rice milk

2 cups of rice flour (I used brown rice flour)

2 tbsp coconut sugar (you could use honey)

2 tsp baking powder (gluten free)

3/4 cup frozen blueberries

Method:

  • Heat a pan on the oven top with a little coconut or olive oil.
  • Beat eggs in a large bowl and add the mashed banana.
  • Add milk, sugar, and flour with the baking powder.
  • Stir well until thick and creamy.
  • Add the blueberries and stir through gently so they don’t make the mixture too blue.
  • Pop large tablespoons of the mixture into the pan and cook for around 4 minutes, or until the bubbles start to pop on the pancakes.  
  • Flip over and cook the other side for around 2 minutes.

Honey Nuts Recipe

Delicious Honey Nuts Recipe

Nuts are so good, and a large part of my families healing diet.  However my kids, like most, don’t really enjoy sitting down to a handful of plain nuts. 

That’s why I use nuts in my baking, smoothies and snacks! That way they still get the goodness of the nuts and their tummies stay healthy.

 

I think of nuts and seeds like vitamins for the mind and body!

 

Once you have these delicious nuts in a jar in the cupboard the uses are endless. I use these as a great snack all on their own, or as a topping for a bowl of fruit and muesli. 

The honey adds a sweetness, the salt is satisfying, and the cinnamon helps keep sugar levels balanced! This is a great recipe because the honey hardens into a yummy glaze that doesn’t stick to fingers. 

 

Honey Nuts Recipe

Ingredients:

2 cups of nuts (Use your favourites, I used almonds, cashews and walnuts for this recipe)

1 heaped tbsp of honey

1 heaped tsp of coconut sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Pinch of sea salt

 

Method:

Preheat oven to 160 C.

Place the raw nuts on baking paper on an oven tray.

Then pop all ingredients EXCEPT the nuts into a small pot on the stove top and melt together.  

Bring to the boil and stir for 1-2 minutes, making sure it doesn’t burn.

Remove from heat and pour over the nuts.

Place the nut mix into the oven and bake for 5-10 minutes.  Watch they don’t burn, and take them out when they are lightly toasted.

Once toasted and removed from the oven, stir the mixture to evenly coat and let cool before popping in a glass jar to store.
