Pancakes Sans Wheat?!

Food - Wheatless Pancakes

So here I am on the first Saturday of trying to eat a diet without any wheat.  It is a challenge because fun breakfast food traditionally uses a lot of wheat.  Think:  French toast, pancakes, waffles, bagels, pastries.  For today I thought I would try my traditional easy pancake recipe with substitutions for flour to see what would happen and voilà!  They turned out pretty good!  See my previous post to hear more about Wheat Belly by William Davis M.D.  and the reasons to lose the wheat.

Pancakes, Simple (Wheatless in parenthesis)

1.5 C. flour (.5 C. coconut flour, .5 C. buckwheat flour, .25 C. ground pecans, .25 C. corn flour)

3 t. baking powder

.5 t. salt

1 T. white sugar (coconut sugar)

1.25 C. milk (1.5 C. watered down organic cream – about 1/2 C. cream and all the rest water)

1 egg

3 T. melted butter (2 T. coconut oil/1 T. butter melted together)

Yep, I couldn’t help messing with some of the other ingredients, coconut sugar is better for you, I was out of milk, coconut oil is so good for you, so why not, but you certainly wouldn’t have to make these changes if you wanted to try this.  I also have done this recipe with almond milk made from almond butter and water, so feel free to switch out anything you want!
