Gluten and Dairy Free Pancakes

You know how it is, whatever you try not to think about is the only thing you can think about. That is me with carbs and dairy right now. I would appear to be on a quest to see how much weight I can gain in the shortest amount of time. But it does make for some great eating. I found this recipe in the magazine "Living Without." I had never seen this magazine before but it has been around for 11 years. It is full of recipes that are gluten and dairy free. I can take no credit for the following recipe but want to pass it along because it is so good. These pancakes are light, fluffy and moist - and dairy free!. They also happen to be made with nothing but the bad kind of carbs but like I said, I can think of nothing else lately. Besides the kids all love them and they are quick and easy. I usually don't bother with making flour mixes but since I have made these pancakes 3 times in the last week it is saving me time to premake the mix.

Pancake Flour Mix

2 cups white rice flour
3/4 cups tapioca flour
3/4 cups sweet rice flour
1/2 cup potato starch
2 tsp xanthan gum

2 cups pancake flour mix
1 T baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/4 t nutmeg
1 1/2 cup milk of choice
3 large eggs
2 T agave nectar, honey or sugar
4 T melted coconut oil

Mix all dry ingredients well in large bowl. Mix wet ingredients in medium bowl. Pour wet into dry and stir until just combined. There should be small lumps. Cook until golden brown.

I had heard about that. It is on our list of to do's. I wish it were like that everywhere. So few people know about CD yet it is more common than autism and everyone knows about that.
