Equipment

  • Stove
  • Griddle pan
  • Pancake spatula

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup sweet rice flour
  • ¾ cup all purpose bob's red mill gluten-free flour blend
  • ½ tsp xanthan gum
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp cardamom
  • 1 whole vanilla bean, cut lengthwise
  • 2 jumbo organic eggs
  • cup quinoa milk or non-dairy milk of choice
  • cups spring water
  • 1 ½ cups blueberries
  • 1-2 tbsp ghee or coconut oil for greasing the pan
  • 30 drops liquid stevia

Instructions

  • Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.
  • With a hand mixer, beat eggs along with vanilla bean in a separate bowl and set aside.
  • Slowly beat the dry mixture into the wet mixture until blended well.
  • Then add in ⅓ cup Quinoa or non-dairy milk along with ⅔ cup water to the mixture and continue to beat until the mixture is smooth.
  • Using liquid stevia, add 30 drops of Liquid Stevia and beat well until blended. Then add ¾ cup blueberries to the mixture.
  • Heat skillet to medium/high heat with cooking spray, ghee,or coconut oil. Then create medium-sized pancakes in the pan, about 4 at a time if you are using a large pan. Manually add desired amount of remaining blueberries to the top of each pancake.
  • Pancakes should cook on each side until lightly browned. Serve cool, warm, or hot, and don't forget to sweeten these with pure maple syrup!

Notes

  • Remember, not all-natural sweeteners are created equal.  Agave is super high in Fructose.  80 percent high!  Much higher than Maple Syrup.  
  • You can also try Brown Rice Syrup, honey, or coconut butter as they are all on the lower end of the glycemic index and are from a natural source.
  • The best part about these pancakes is that you can use whatever fruit you want like cherries, raspberries, strawberries, figs, and even peaches and apples!
  • Ghee is another name for clarified butter which can be found in the dairy section of your supermarket.  Ghee is a great source of good fat.
  • Liquid Stevia is very different than packaged powder stevia.  In order to make this recipe sugar-free, you will need the liquid Stevia that does not have any additives in it.  This you can find at your local health store.
