Gluten-Free Apple Amaranth Pancakes

August 5th, 2009 by Cleo Libonati, RN, BSN


These pancakes are great for breakfast. Nutritious low fat amaranth adds its rich protein, fiber, iron, calcium, and B vitamins to whole grain brown rice, eggs and applesauce for a nutrient dense breakfast that really satisfies.

Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup amaranth flour
  • 1/3 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/3 cup white rice flour
  • 1/3 cup tapioca flour or cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fructose or other sweetener
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

 

Equipment

Skillet or griddle.

Process

Blend dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.  Stir in eggs, oil, vinegar, applesauce and water just until mixed.

Allow to set a few minutes, then drop 2 to 3 tablespoons onto hot greased griddle or heavy skillet. When bubbles form around the edges of the pancakes, flip over to cook other side.  Works just as well for making waffles. Serves 4.
