Have you ever tried Gluten Free Pancake Mix?  If you haven’t, you should!  If you don’t have Celiac Disease (Sprue), gluten intolerance or a wheat allergy, don’t let that stop you.  Personally, I like to “diversify” my grain consumption.  This mix uses potato starch, sorghum flour, tapioca flour, and corn flour.

I actually discovered this product when looking for a vegan pancake mix while vacationing in Kauai.  It impressed me so much that I still buy it, even at home.

The recipe on the label calls for: 

  • 1 1/2 C pancake mix
  • 1 egg  (*Use a mashed banana instead)
  • 3/4 C milk
  • 1 T oil

I use 1/2 cup non-dairy milk and 1/4 cup juice instead of all milk.  Organic apple juice is good.  I also add 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts or hazelnuts.  Add a little extra water to thin the batter…about 1/3 cup.

For Hawaii-style pancakes, use pineapple juice, macadamia nuts, and add a tablespoon of shredded coconut..Mmm!

At home, I like to put maple syrup and jam on my cakes.

Almond Butter Strawberry Energy Bars

“Wet” Ingredients:

1 box (12.3 oz) Firm Silken Tofu (Mori Nu)
1/2 C vegan brown sugar
1/2 C organic apple juice
2/3 C almond butter

Dry Ingredients:

1/4 C EACH:  quinoa flour, millet flour, spelt flour, ground oats & rolled oats
1/3 C whole wheat pastry flour
3 T ground flax
2 T fine shred unsweetened coconut
1 T ground walnuts
1/2 t salt

Organic Strawberries – Wash and pat dry.  Slice.  Use enough to cover the area of a square glass pan.  (I didn’t measure.)

In a food processor, puree the “wet” ingredients.  Add to the dry ingredients.  Spread about half of the mixture in a greased square glass pan.  (I like to use coconut oil to grease pans.)  Spread the strawberry slices on top.

Spread the rest of the mixture.  Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.  Cool completely before cutting.  I like to use a pastry cutter.  Freeze them in a container with a little space between each one.

I take these skiing and mountain biking.  Take one out of the freezer in the morning and it’ll be thawed out by the time you’re ready to eat.  Enjoy!
