Back to School and Gluten Free

The first day of school is a special and memorable day for kids. Today was Jesse’s first day of second grade and I wanted to make him some special pancakes. But I wanted him to be on his best first-day-of-school behavior. So I decided to go Gluten Free and whipped these up this morning. They were simple, fluffy, and nutritious and all the boys gobbled them up.

Back to School Gluten Free Pancakes
1 1/2 cups brown rice flour
1/4 cup oatmeal
2 Tb ground flax
2 Tb sugar
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch salt

Put all dry ingredients in a large bowl and make a well in the center. Add the wet ingredients to the well. Mix until just combined.
