Gluten Free Pancakes with Fruit Sauce


This gluten Free breakfast recipe might come as a surprise to you since I often stock up on boxed cereal on my Coupon “High” trips .` ` `  With coupons,`  cereal is`  a very frugal and convenient breakfast for my kids.`  However, don’t expect to see the huge cereal stock-ups this coming month.`  It’s not because there won’t necessarily be deals, but because I’m doing a month long test in our house.

I love the convenience of cereal in the morning, especially since the kids leave at 3 different times and eat separately.`  However, I am realizing that this might not be the most nutritious thing for them in the morning.

Most cereals are packed with gluten and sugar.`  Both of these have been being linked to attention issues lately.`  While none of my children suffer from ADHD,`  I recently received a teacher call saying that one was not paying total attention during reading.`  This call prompted me to rethink the cereal every morning` `  So for the next month the kids won’t be having cereal in the morning and I am coming up with gluten and corn syrup free breakfasts.` `  We’ll see if it makes a difference.

One definite breakfast possibility is eggs.`  They are very frugal, but there is a problem.`  It’s that the kids can’t serve these up easily by themselves.`  While thinking of something that the kids could prepare themselves, pancakes came to mind because you can freeze or refrigerate them and the kids could just warm them up in the microwave when it was time for them to eat.`  My regular pancake recipe includes wheat flour and oatmeal.`  Since I am going gluten free, that wouldn’t work and neither would the syrup I normally served since it is full of corn syrup.

I found this recipe for Rice Flour Pancakes and adapted it to come up with the following recipe.

Gluten Free Rice Pancakes with Fruit Sauce
Gluten Free Pancakes with sugar free Fruit Sauce. Makes for a great healthy start to the morning
Recipe type: Gluten Free Breakfast
Serves: 18 pancakes
Rice Pancake Ingredients
Fruit Sauce Ingredients
  • 1 bag Frozen Raspberries
  • 4 ripe bananas
Pancake Directions
  1. Beat the eggs in a mixing bow.
  2. Stir in the milk, oil, salt, Sugar and Vanilla.
  3. Whisk in the rice flour until no dry lumps remain
  4. Cover the bowl and let stand for an hour at room temperature or place in refrigerator overnight. I did the second option and in the morning added the flax meal.
  5. When ready to cook turn slightly greased griddle to medium-high heat.
  6. Pour batter on by large spoonfuls and cook until edges are solid. I didn't notice bubbles forming like regular pancakes.
  7. Flip over and cook until browned on the other side.
Fruit Sauce Directions
  1. Mash the Bananas
  2. Add in the Frozen Raspberries and mix together.
  3. Let sit in the refrigerator overnight.

To top it off, I added a spoonful of strawberry banana Greek Yogurt. ` It added a bit more protein and the kids loved it instead of whip cream. ` By the way, Giant Eagle shoppers, you can get free Greek Yogurt this week.

The kids all enjoyed the Pancakes and I’ll definitely be repeating this recipe during our month of no cereal.

Do any of you have any great gluten free breakfast ideas that the kids can prepare themselves?`  I’ve been searching Pinterest for some and you can check out the ideas I’ve found on my Healthy Breakfast Pinterest`  board if you would like.`  I would love to add more though so would love some suggestions.
