I’m happy to feature my friend, Arlene Sablan Aguon’s healthy recipes.
This particular recipe is a healthy alternative to regular pancakes. It’s gluten-free, delicious, and packed with nutrients that not only taste good but are good for you too!
Give Arlene’s recipe a try. I think you’ll like it! 🙂
Yield: 4 pancakes
@untie R’s Gluten-Free Blueberry Cheese Pancakes
- 2 cups gluten-free flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder (or 1 teaspoon of Xanthan Gum powder)
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons wheat germ or steel cut oats
- 1 1/2 cups flax or soy milk
- 1 cup small curd cottage cheese.
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten (see notes below)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in sugar and wheat germ/oats; set aside.
Combine the milk, cottage cheese, and coconut oil.
Pour the flax or soy milk mixture all at once into the flour mixture; stir until moist. Add additional milk, a little at a time, if the batter is too thick (the batter should pour easily). Gently stir in the berries.
Pre-heat a skillet/grill over medium heat; lightly grease the skillet. Pour the mixture onto the skillet to the size you prefer. Cook until the tops are bubbly and appear dry; flip over to finish cooking.
Serve and enjoy!
NOTE from Arlene: I didn’t use the egg. The small curd cottage cheese acts as your binder with the coconut oil. Yummy too.
NOTE from Annie: You can use a “chia egg” in place of the regular egg. Mix 1 tablespoon ground chia seeds with 3 tablespoons water. Let the mixture sit until it forms a gel. Use the chia gel/egg in the recipe instead of the egg.
