I love nothing more but when I try out a new gluten free recipe and it turns out amazing. Because lets be honest, quite often gluten free recipes either end up being rock hard, or tasting like sand. But it is all about trial and error, you don’t know whether a recipe will actually be good or not until you try. I suppose this is the same as life, you don’t really know how things will turn out unless you try. Why say no to something before you even know how it will end up? Yes there is always a possibility of it turning out rock hard, instead of soft and cozy…but who knows. It may just turn out perfect. Trying will bring out your different colours in this world of everyone being the same, it will set you apart and help you shine.
I came across this recipe on a blog I found randomly through Instagram. I actually love finding bloggers who don’t ONLY blog gluten free recipes. I find that then when they do have gf recipes, they’re basically just a normal recipe but with gf flour. And in my opinion, I find these to turn out best. When you change 5 ingredients to be healthier, or gluten free…it changes the entire end result. Where as when you change ONLY the flour, the end result stays the same.
I have one piece of advice, TRY these gf pancakes. They’re delicious and so easy. Make them for breakfast, make them for lunch, make them for dinner. And if you have left overs…freeze them and put them in the toaster for breakfast.
-3 tbsp. melted butter
– 2cups brown rice flour (or regular flour for non gluten free)
-1/4 cup sugar
-2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
-1/2 tsp. baking soda
-1/2 tsp. salt
-2 1/4 cup milk
-2 large eggs
-1/2 tsp. vanilla (I use pure, real, organic vanilla…if you are using grocery store bought vanilla you might want to use 1 tsp. Mine that I use is very strong.)
Directions: Melt the butter in the microwave and cool. In a large bowl mix all of the dry ingredients, set aside. In separate bowl beat eggs with fork, add cooled butter, milk and vanilla. Add wet to dry and stir. Do NOT over stir, the batter is supposed to be thick and lumpy.
To Cook: Melt either butter or coconut oil (if using coconut oil, remember this will affect the taste of your pancakes, and give them a coconut flavor) on a griddle. Pour pancake mix onto griddle. Add blueberries, wait for batter to start bubbling, once started, flip. Voila.
After you’ve eaten pancakes for dinner (which is exactly what I did last night) it’s time to relax with a tea. And of course your tazo tea will taste that much better in your new Starbucks glass mug, wearing your brand new custom bracelet you just received in the mail. I added my Tiffany’s bracelet to the 5 piece bracelet I ordered from Dear Lynn Jewelry and it’s perfect.
It’s all about trying. Trying a new recipe, trying a new yoga class, trying a new jewelry designer, trying a new career…If not you, who? If not now, when? Try it, I dare you. What really can go wrong? Maybe a lot…but maybe trying will create a whole new positive outcome, even if it is just trying a new kind of tea instead of your regular go to green tea.
