Our Usual Pancakes

When we first got the diagnosis of CD, Ron was sad about losing pancakes. So the search was on for some decent gf recipes. I think I have tried probably a hundred. The first several came out with the consistency of "snot" - Ron's description. The next ones graduated to the consistency of raw egg whites. Finally we have one that is really good. I make it often. Actually, since CD, I have never had so many hot breakfasts. Since most boxed cereals are out (why must they put malt in everything?!) that certainly changes what our mornings would otherwise look like. I have added blueberries to these as well as pureed pumpkin or banana slices with pumpkin pie spice. All are really good. Here it is.

GF, DF Pancakes

1/2 cup multi grain rice flour (we grind our own but subbing brown rice flour would be fine)
1/2 cup millet flour (you could sub any flour here)
1/3 cup potato starch
2 T sugar
3 T ground flax seeds
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/2 t xanthan gum
2 eggs
3 T oil
enough water to get desired consistency

Just mix all together. Yum!
