These pancakes are the perfect disguise for a breakfast with some nutritional heft thanks to the flaxseed meal, which also adds a nutty flavor. The tapioca flour and potato starch keep the texture light while the brown rice flour adds some whole grains and fiber.
3.06 ounces brown rice flour (about 2/3 cup)
1.05 ounces tapioca flour (about 1/4 cup)
1.3 ounces potato starch (about 1/4 cup)
0.9 ounce flaxseed meal (about 1/4 cup)
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3/4 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup fresh blueberries
How to Make It
Weigh or lightly spoon flours, potato starch, and flaxseed meal into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, potato starch, flaxseed meal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine buttermilk, vanilla, and eggs; stir with a whisk. Add to flour mixture, stirring until smooth.
Heat a nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour 2 tablespoons batter per pancake onto pan; cook 1 minute or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Carefully turn pancakes over; cook 1 minute or until bottoms are lightly browned. Serve with maple syrup and blueberries.
Really excellent pancakes. I added a bit of oil (olive) because I thought it was unusual that the recipe didn't have any. Plus...I added more vanilla just because. :).
I have tried a lot of GF pancakes recipes and these are the best so far. All of my other recipes will be shelved.
