Meatless Monday Recipe: Delicious Gluten-free Pancakes

I was trying to figure out if I’ve ever done a breakfast recipe for one of my Meatless Monday posts and I don’t think I have!  So ta-da first breakfast recipe is my super easy and delicious gluten-free / vegan pancakes!!  They are sooo good, you guys have to try them.  They are very simple and easy to make (pancakes from scratch made easy!) because there’s only a few ingredients.  Add whatever toppings you have on hand and viola, you’ve got yourself a tasty breakfast feast.

Meatless Monday Recipe: Delicious Gluten-free Pancakes

 

Servings: 3 small pancakes

  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour*
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tbsp EVOO
  • a pinch or two of sea salt

*I highly recommend the Bob’s Red Mill brand, I’ve found other brands to be gritty

**optional toppings:  I love blueberries or blackberries on mine and of course maple syrup!

  1. Drizzle a bit of olive oil into your pan and preheat on medium
  2. Add all your ingredient into a bowl except the water
  3. Mix the ingredients together and slowly add the water (you may not need to add all the water)
  4. Stop when it gets to pancake batter consistency
  5. You’ll know the pan is hot enough when you see little bubbles forming in the olive oil
  6. Scoop out 1/3 of the batter and add to the pan (you should hear a sizzle sound as the batter hits the pan)
  7. Once you’ve used up all your batter, give it a good 5 minutes to cook (may take a little longer) you can check the bottom of the pancakes with a spatula to see if they’ve browned
  8. Flip over once the bottom side has browned and cook for an additional 2 – 3 minutes
  9. Add some fresh berries or fruit and drizzle with maple syrup and you’re ready to eat!

*Note:  Don’t worry if your batter looks a little lumpy from the applesauce, I’ve found some brands are smoother than others

Pink Pancake Recipe for Valentine’s Day!

I’m excited to share this sweet Valentine’s Day recipe with you!  These pink heart-shaped pancakes are easy to make and taste sooo delicious!!  I seriously ate two while taking these pictures for the blog.  Besides being pink and heart-shaped, these pancakes are also diary-free.  I used Earth Balance’s buttery spread (soy-free) and some Vermont maple syrup (yum!) to top these babies off but feel free to use your own toppings.  This pancake recipe is quick to come together, so whipping up a batch Wednesday morning wouldn’t be much of a worry.  Scroll down for the recipe!

Makes 6 – 8 pancakes – recipe can be doubled and it also depends on the size of your heart

Pink Pancake Recipe for Valentine's Day!

So I wanted to take a minute to talk about this heart shaped thingy that I’m not really sure what to call it.  Someone gifted me two of these things, years ago and I never bothered to give them a try until now.  They are pretty awesome and designed to lay flat on a griddle or frying pan.  It took me a few attempts at getting the hearts to come out perfect but after that it was smooth sailing.

The underside of the pancakes is pinker since it’s the side that spent less time on the griddle

Recipe:

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Go slow with the food coloring drops.
  3. Cook on medium-low heat.  Place heart on griddle with a few drops of olive oil before adding a thin layer of pancake mix.
  4. Once bubbles stop bubbling on pancake, you are clear to flip.  Let cook for an additional minute.
  5. Add toppings and enjoy!
