Gluten Free Blueberry and Coconut Milk Pancakes

Blueberry and Coconut Milk PancakesI make pancakes for breakfast maybe once a month – and the days I have them I enjoy every bite. Often I end up eating leftovers from dinner the night before, or I make a smoothie with whatever fresh fruits and vegetables I have available. Pancakes were the breakfast I looked forward to most as a child, which was often holidays and good times with my family. My family was happy to see pancakes when they woke up today and I’m glad I was able to start their day with a smile.

1 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
2 tablespoons ground flax seed
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 14 oz can coconut milk (full fat or light both work)
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1 cup fresh blueberries

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and allow it to get hot. Scoop the pancake batter into the skillet, making 2-3 pancakes at a time. Allow the tops to bubble just a bit and the bottoms will be lightly browned when they are ready to flip. Makes 12-13 medium sized pancakes. Top with blueberries and any other toppings of choice. Enjoy!

      I’m able to get it at the grocery store here in both smaller packets or a larger bag, over in the organic/gluten free area of the store.(medium sized city). Otherwise amazon or other online vendors would have it.
      If you’re unable to find it, you could try adding another teaspoon of ground flax or a teaspoon of chia seeds, since they both work as a “binder” as well.
