Gluten Free Pancakes

Gluten-Free eCookbook, Stack’d

By August 29, 2013 Gluten-Free Products, Gluten-Free Recipes

One thing I love about being a g-free blogger is getting to “meet” so many people I otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to meet. One of those people that I am thankful to have gotten to know in the past few years is Jessica Kahn from kitch+table. I’m 99.9% sure that we would be the best of friends if we didn’t live thousands of miles apart. However, I do still get the chance to review her products on the reg, and now her new eCookbook, Stack’d!

Stack'd Gluten-Free eCookbook

Stack’d is an eCookbook full of gluten-free protein pancake recipes. Now, I know what you’re thinking, protein pancakes sound like a chore, but I’m here to tell you that you’re mistaken. The pancake recipes in Stack’d are super easy and you barely even use any dishes to make them (ingredients are blended together in Magic Bullet-style blender), so it’s a win-win.

So far I have made the Blueberry Pancakes in Jessica’s book, and I can’t wait to try a long list of other flavors. For example, Stack’d contains a recipe for Mimosa pancakes…ummmm, is this real life? I’m totally making this for breakfast the next time I have a girls weekend with my non-GF bestie because these babies look so good she won’t give a hoot!

I highly recommend that you purchase Stack’d. The gluten-free eCookbook costs $3.49 on Amazon so don’t go telling me you don’t have the (gluten-free) dough to pay for it. That’s less than half of a burrito bowl at Chipotle, so you aren’t fooling me.

Another great thing about this eCookbook is that the recipes aren’t super difficult so you can actually make them on weekday mornings as well! If you’re anything like me, you’re not trying to get into a time-intensive breakfast on a Monday – Friday morning. I’d like to personally thank Jessica for keeping this in mind when she came up with these wonderful gluten-free pancake recipes.

For those of you that don’t understand the whole “protein” concept behind the pancakes, it basically means that adding gluten-free whey protein in your pancake batter makes it a protein pancake. Not diggin’ the whey? Don’t add it! (I didn’t add it in mine simply because I didn’t have any in my pantry.)

Just take a gander at the Stack’d Instagram page and your taste-buds are sure to fall in g-free love. I mean, the pictures of these pancakes are out of this world. You can also follow Stack’d on Twitter, along with its master brand, kitch+table. Show Jess, the eCookbook author, your love on all social platforms. She will appreciate it, I assure you!

Fluffy Gluten-Free Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce

By March 2, 2013 Gluten-Free Recipes

There are few better things than waking up in the morning, getting in the kitchen, and whipping up some fluffy pancakes. It’s the kind of breakfast that screams, “Today is awesome!

I was lucky enough to receive a shipment of Sugar and Spice Market gluten-free mixes, one of which was their pancake and waffle mix. One of the best things about the mix is the fact that all I needed to add was 2 eggs, some butter, and a little bit of oil. Easier than (gluten-free) pie.

Fluffy Pancakes

I was determined to show these pancakes some extra g-free love and not just a simple squeeze from the syrup bottle. So what did I do? I utilized the never-ending recipe resource referred to as Pinterest and found Gluten-Free-Vegan-Girl’s Pancakes and Blueberry Sauce recipe!

Since I already had the pancake part taken care of (thanks Sugar and Spice Market!), I just paid attention to the blueberry sauce part of the recipe, which was super-duper easy!

Make Your Pancakes Classy with Blueberry Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/3 cup water

Instructions:

Add ingredients into a medium-sized pot and bring to a simmer

When blueberries are no longer frozen, and dates are soft enough to be blended, transfer ingredients into a blender (I used a small, handheld blender)

Pulse blender until ingredients are combined; pour into jar to serve

Gluten-Free Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce

Voila! How easy is that?! The best part is that it totally made my pancakes look professionally awesome like I’m some amazing chef (when in actuality I use pancake mixes and super simple syrup alternatives).

This recipe is easy, just like Sunday morning. I hope you’ll use it this weekend! But, if you do, be prepared to go back for “seconds”!

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pancakes

Pumpkin Pancakes with Pamela's Products

It’s October, therefore you must try to infuse pumpkin into everything you can. So, on this beautiful Fall morning, I decided to try my hand at some gluten-free pumpkin pancakes.

I woke up, worked out (in preparation of the pancake calories I would be consuming), went to the store to pick up some pumpkin puree, and got the Pamela’s pancake mix out of the pantry.

The recipe I used is one I found on the Gluten-Free Mommy blog. It was simple enough for the not-so-great cook in me, but also had those extra ingredients in there to really make these pancakes the perfect treat for a Fall morning.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups GF Flour Mix (I used Pamela’s)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons of pumpkin puree (I may have been a little generous on my definition of “tablespoon”)
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg

The directions were quite simple: whisk all dry ingredients in one bowl, mix all wet ingredients in another bowl, then combine! A simple three-step process…that’s my kind of recipe! After your batter is all mixed and ready to go, grab your skillet and get down to business!

Hope you have the chance to whip up some of these gluten-free pumpkin pancakes. They are mighty tasty, and will help you start your day off the perfect way!

Gluten-Free on a Carnival Cruise: Breakfast Edition

By February 17, 2012 Gluten Free Vacation
carnival

This is Part 3 of my Gluten Free on a Carnival Cruise series. Part 1 consisted of my utter shock and happiness of all the amazing accommodations. Part 2 consisted of my dining experience at David’s Steakhouse aboard the Carnival Pride. Now it’s time for Part 3…all about Breakfast.

I am a firm believer in the fact that breakfast IS the most important meal of the day. I am also a creature of habit. Every morning, I wake up, fry up some egg whites, and eat 2 pieces of Rudi’s Gluten Free toast. When I’m really feeling frisky, I do turn to some gluten free pancakes on a nice Sunday morning. But…back to my point…I want to rave about the wonderful gluten free accommodations my mother and I had during the most important meal of the day on our cruise vacation.

If I choose to go out to breakfast, I have come to terms with the fact that I won’t have toast to dip in my egg….or pancakes to eat with my bacon…or have the chance to enjoy the benedict to my egg. Now, that’s a different story aboard a Carnival Cruise Fun Ship.

My family decided to go to the dining room every morning for breakfast, because we were able to request certain items at meals [unlike at the buffets, where it’s all men for themselves]. The first morning, after being sat down and handed menus, I began to see what I would order. I thought to myself, “Well, I guess I’ll order my go-to egg white omelette, and maybe I can get a piece of bacon or something to go with it”. Then, as I was reading down the menu, I saw Gluten Free Bread written under the available bread items [Hallelujah! Hallelujah!]. YAY! I then reverted to my habits, ordered an egg white omelette, and 2 pieces of gluten free toast. Breakfast of champions.

Breakfast number 2 – I stuck with the old habit of omelette and toast, but I did mix it up with some turkey bacon [which was not tasty. I’ll take the real thing over that any day]. After the meal, as we were walking out of the dining room, we stopped to thank the Hostess for her help. At that time, she asked us if we wanted to order anything special for the next morning. We then asked what other things they could prepare for us – pancakes, french toast? She replied answering that they could make any of that. So, of course my mom and I each ordered pancakes for the next day.

Breakfast number 3 – Gluten Free pancakes – that’s what’s up. My mom and I both enjoyed our pancakes, and were happily surprised with a platter of home fries. Since the hash brown’s on the menu were not gluten free, the hostess thought that we would enjoy specially cut, thick potato slices for a gluten free version of home fries. I’m a starchy kind of gal, so I thought they were amazing.

Breakfast number 4 -Gluten Freefrench toast. You better believe I took advantage of that! The bread they used for the french toast was the same bread that we were given with our meals, so it was not as thick as I would have liked, but nonetheless, it was scrumptious. This time around, I ordered REAL bacon [none of that wannabe, turkey bacon stuff]. French toast + bacon + syrup = amazing.

Breakfast number 5 – After seeing my stepdad order eggs benedict 3 previous times, and clean his plate, I decided to try that out. I had never had eggs benedict before, so I was really in for a treat. I usually don’t like yolk that is still runny [personal preference], so that was one thing holding me back initially. But, I enjoyed the meal overall. It was so nice to be able to order just about anything that we wanted – such an enjoyable experience!

Breakfast number 6 – Back to the basics – egg white omelette and toast. After eating course after course after course for the past 5 days, I decided I would try and not stuff my face that morning.

So that’s the down low on what gluten free options one has while on a Carnival Cruise. Pretty impressive if I do say so myself. I apologize for the lack of photos in this post, but unfortunately I failed to wait long enough before eating like a scavenger each meal. I hope you enjoyed learning the possibilities we G-Free’ers have now in the world of travel. There’s nothing but good things to come for us as more people become aware of the gluten free diet!

Stay tuned for Part 4 of my experience being Gluten Free on a Carnival Cruise. I will be going into detail about the expereience I had each evening in the dining room.
