Fluffy GF/DF Pancakes

You may remember when I made my first recipe for fluffy pancakes this past June.  Though it works, I wanted to have a mix that didn't even need a milk substitute (gets expensive) and still tasted great.  Being that Bisquix was part of what my family used for our pancakes while growing up, I decided to research the ingredient list of Bisquix, and found several ingredients to add and experiment with (including that one of their ingredients is powdered sugar - how did I not know this?)

After about 5 batches of experiments (and wolfing, I think we have a winner!  Tapioca flour for fluffiness, sorghum for a bit of sweet, flax for fiber, and a dash of oil and honey for moisture, make these the healthiest and yummiest  morning indulgences you could have! These pancakes would be GREAT for xmas morning brunch (hint hint...).  I know that's what I'm doing!  (and sausage!)  ^_^

You'll Need:

- 3/4 cup tapioca flour
- 1/4 cup brown rice flour
- 1/4 cup sorghum flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- dash of cinnamon
- sprinkle of salt
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp flax seed meal (plus 3 tbsp warm water for flax to soak in - use separate bowl) - or 1 egg
- 2 tbsp honey
- 3/4 cup water

* yields approx 14 pancakes.

To Start:

- in a small separate bowl, add the flaxseed and warm water together and let is soak off to the side
- in a second bowl, combine all dry ingredients
- add the wet ingredients to the dry, except for the water. (olive oil, flaxseed mix, honey)
- gradually add the water while mixing.
- fire up your griddle and spoon out the pancakes (about 5 inches width).  once you see the pancake looking like a moon crater, flip it over (should be a golden brown on the opposite side).  pancakes should be done on the opposite side in approx another 30 secs.
- use all batter and serve.

Enjoy!  Merry Christmas!
