My husband is a pancake connoisseur. When we go out for breakfast, which is rare because he prefers to make our pancakes, he loves ordering the pancakes so he can rate them. Through all of our tastes, trials and errors, we came up with a pancake that he can call his “go-to.” He makes this recipe for us every weekend! It was definitely a joint effort, with some adjusting, to find the perfect pancake. Dense but not tough to eat, a touch of sweet, and gluten free so he can digest them easily! Enjoy!

- 1 3/4 cups brown rice flour
- 1/4 cup buckwheat flour
- 1/4 cup almond flour (or almond meal)
- 1/4 cup tapioca flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
- 3/4 teaspoon guar gum (optional)
- ¼ cup sucanat or coconut palm sugar
- 1 cup almond milk (or non dairy milk of choice)
- 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flaxseed plus 6 tablespoons water)
- 2 tablespoons your favorite baking oil (optional)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- up to 1 cup water
- a spray of oil to grease griddle (optional)
Toppings: fruit, nuts, shredded coconut, etc.
Mix 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed with 6 tablespoons water to make flax eggs and set aside.
Combine the dry ingredients in a blender. Add in the wet ingredients except the water and mix well. Add water ¼ cup at a time until your batter is smooth, but not too thick.
Grease a griddle with a splash of oil (if using) and heat it. Once hot, pour a spoonful of batter for each pancake.
Flip the pancakes once you see little bubbles forming.
Cook a few more minutes until the pancakes are firm when you pick them up with the spatula.
Add more water to the batter if it gets thick as it stands. Serve with your favorite toppings.
You can make extra pancakes and store in the refrigerator as kid snacks. [/recipe]
