Now, these pancakes may look like regular pancakes but they are in no way like regular pancakes.  No way, no sir!  As a matter of fact, these pancakes may be the Holy Grail of power breakfasts

I adore pancakes!  But sadly most pancakes are deficient in vitamins and fiber.  Hmmm… that’s not a very good way to start the morning.  So, I decided to create gluten-free Gimme Power Pancakes without a smidge of white flour in them.   But would my pancakes taste good without resorting to adding some type of white flour or corn/potato or tapioca starch?  

OH MY ~ We loved them!  And the first time my Gorgeous Man and I had Gimme Power Pancakes we were amazed at how much energy we had.  These pancakes turbo-charged us with power to get through the day!

Okay, okay; so we loved them but I needed to try my new gluten-free Gimme Power Pancakes on someone other than my Gorgeous Man and myself.  Yes, I needed to try them out on a Wheat Eater!   I looked at the calendar and noticed that Lady Glutenite was coming over the next morning and I had some leftover pancake batter.  Ah-hah!  Yes, she would be the perfect victim, oops, I mean guest to try out my latest creation!
Morning came and Lady Glutenite arrived.  I asked her if she would like to try some super-healthy Gimme Power Pancakes (that would most likely change her life).  

She nodded tiredly, “I suppose so.” 

I spooned some pancake batter on the griddle and when they were golden brown I flipped them over, finished cooking them; then put two large pancakes on her plate.  She slathered on some butter, then I passed her the pitcher of warm real-maple syrup and waited for her response.  

She ate silently, then finally said,  “These are good; what’s in them?” 

“Oh… I have a Don’t Ask ~ Don’t Tell Policy when it comes to Power Pancakes.”  

She laughed,  “I like these pancakes.  They taste good, I like the texture.  Yeah, these are good.”

Wow – you have no idea what high praise that is.  So, since these are my new favorite pancakes I have to share them with you!  Gimme Power Pancakes are gluten-free, dairy-free and high in protein and fiber but most important; they’ll make you happy in the morning!  

 Start this recipe the night before!

Gimme Power Pancakes 
Gimme Gluten Free

1 cup almond flour
2/3 cup coconut flour
1/3 cup ground flaxseed 
1/3 cup teff flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1 tablespoon baking powder

1 can coconut milk Net 13.66 FL OZ. (403 ml)
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup water 
7 large or extra-large eggs (yes, that’s right, seven eggs)
2 tablespoons maple syrup

  1.  Whisk first 7 ingredients together in a large bowl.  Add the coconut milk, vinegar, water, eggs and maple syrup; whisk until smooth.  Cover and pop in your refrigerator.  
  2. In the morning simply spoon about 1/4 cup of batter on your greased griddle. (Heated to approximately 350 degrees.) I cook my pancakes in coconut oil.  Coconut oil will give your pancakes a lovely crispy edge. 
  3. Cook pancakes until golden brown on one side; flip over and cook until done.  (Don’t under-cook ~ high fiber, gluten-free pancakes take a bit longer to cook than regular pancakes )  Enjoy!

Serving suggestions:  Butter/Ghee/Spread of your choice, Maple Syrup, Fresh Blueberries, Banana slices and Toasted Pecans.

Have a happy, HEALTHY and energy-filled day!
