Several years ago my wife started having some pretty nasty spells of dizziness and vertigo. This actually happened right after our son was born. After many years of seeing doctors, specialists and having so many tests ran that I was personally waiting on her to start glowing, we had an answer.
Thankfully she had the idea to get checked out for gluten intolerance and low and behold, she has a gluten sensitivity that was causing a lot of problems.
One of the many things that she has always loved, and simply didn’t want to give up if at all possible, are pancakes. This one is my personal little concoction that I whipped up and she enjoys immensely.
My kids actually love this one as well, and they request me to make it quite often. It has really became a favorite of the family and I hope that your family enjoys it as much as mine does.
Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Pancakes
- 1 ½ cups gluten free pancake mix (I personally use Pamela’s but feel free to use whichever you like)
- 1 egg
- ½ cup sugar free applesauce (When apples are in season, I prefer to use two whole cored red delicious apples)
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- ¼ cup apple cider (you can also use milk or water here if you want)
Add your gluten free mix, cinnamon, egg, applesauce (or apples preferably), and finally cider into your blender and mix.
One warning that I will give is that if you’re serving this to someone who suffers from diabetes, substitute the apple cider for water. The pancakes will still taste delicious but apple cider has a LOT of sugar in it.
Pro Tips: When apples are in season, they really make this recipe POP! Make sure that your blender can handle tossing two cored apples in the mix. If not, take a look at our top blender picks for some recommendations on quality blenders that won’t break the bank.
Again, I hope that your family enjoys this one as much as mine has. It really makes a great addition to breakfast, or breakfast for dinner as I typically serve them.
