|Warm blueberry pancakes for a perfect gluten-free breakfast|
I woke up this morning craving something starchy and sweet for breakfast. Last night I made a fabulous batch of gluten-free tropical granola (based off my delicious Gluten-free Granola recipe), but I wanted more substance. Something that was light and fluffy, sweet, semi-healthy, and packed with antioxidants. That left me with one thing.
Blueberry pancakes. Gluten-free blueberry pancakes at that.

As you may have noticed with my recent posts, I’ve been experimenting quite a bit with gluten-free baking. Using Karina Allrich’s Gluten-Free Baking Tips as a guide, I’ve played with new flour combinations, tried various egg replacers and worked with different sugar substitutes.
The Gluten-Free Goddess is my inspiration. She was the light at the end of the tunnel, that guided me through the beginning months of being gluten-free. Her recipes are truly amazing. She convinced me that living gluten-free is not only easy, but it’s delicious. She showed me that cooking gluten-free is rewarding and fun.
Whenever I’m in need of baking tips and tricks, I always turn to her. She is one of my many saviors in the kitchen.
No exception to the rule this time around. I wanted pancakes, there was only one place to look.
Unfortunately, my gluten-free pantry is not as stocked as Karina’s and therefore I couldn’t make her pancakes as is. Rather than fiddle around with all her ingredients and get it wrong, I used my Gluten-free Pumpkin “Oatmeal” Pancakes as my reference point. Less ingredients, more manageable for me this morning.
“These pancakes are delicious. Are they really Gluten-free?”

|The best gluten-free pancakes. Ever.|
Pictures speak louder than words and it’s no exception here. These photos don’t lie. The batch of gluten-free pancakes that I whipped up this morning were glorious. The perfect way to start the day.
I’m not one to toot my own horn, but these pancakes honestly were the best pancakes I’ve ever had. They were light, fluffy, perfectly balanced, not too sweet, with a hint of sourness from the blueberries. I couldn’t have been happier with my breakfast choice this morning.
