Blueberry Banana Pancakes (Gluten Free)

Allergen Information: Contains tree nuts (can substitute another milk)

Yes, you can still eat pancakes even if you’re gluten free!  If you’re not, that’s ok.  You won’t taste the difference and you’ll get some other grains in your system 🙂

Blueberry Banana Pancakes 2

This has been my go-to recipe for about a year….I’ve had lots of trial runs, tweaking it how I like it….Really, I have such a hard job 😉 But now, it’s time to share the love.  Pancake party anyone?

The Banana-Buckwheat base recipe (without the blueberries) is great on its own, with the blueberries, or with another fruit of your choice (what about chopped fresh strawberries?!).

Feel free to use what you have on hand, even some Enjoy Life Chocolate chips if you like!  Anything will work here, even just the bananas.  Sometimes I love to make them plain and add some walnuts on top, drizzled with warm maple syrup.

Speaking of maple syrup….it’s my only option to top these pancakes, except for maybe some coconut whipped cream!

Under no circumstances should you use Log Cabin syrup, or anything of that nature.  You are my friends, and I help my friends out.  Seriously, if you have it, walk to your pantry and chunk it. Buy pure maple syrup and call it a day.

What’s wrong with regular syrup? EVERYTHING.  I bet most people just think it’s syrup.  NOPE! It’s High Fructose Corn Syrup and Caramel Coloring, probably two of the worst ingredients you could put in your body!

I don’t think Aunt Jemima would really support all this laboratory mess.  Every single ingredient, except the water is B.A.D. for you!

Then we have companies like Log Cabin who know High Fructose Corn Syrup is a buzz word, so they use marketing techniques to trick our minds. But, what’s the number 1 ingredient? Corn syrup.  It may not be HIGH, but it sure is bad, too.  GMOs all the way. (photo credit www.findingclean.com)

I hope this is appalling.  All you need is 100% PURE Maple Syrup warmed just a tad, these pancakes, and a hungry belly.

Don’t be fooled, friends! Use the real stuff, make informed decisions, and eat well!

Cheers!
