Essential Coconut Pancakes

Essential Coconut PancakesCoconutCookbook

When I saw The Complete Coconut Cookbook was coming out this month, I was so excited. Besides the fact that it is also by my book publisher, Robert Rose, I have been a fan of coconut way before it’s popularity. If you’re looking for a great breakfast recipe, try these Essential Coconut Pancakes. Few things top homemade pancakes, and this coconut variation is a winner with kids and adults alike. You’ll stay satisfied for hours, too, thanks to the high protein content of the chickpea flour (10 grams in 1 cup compared to 8 grams in wheat flour) and the high fiber content of the coconut flour. They also taste amazing. If you’re like me and super busy on the weekdays, you can make these ahead of time and refrigerate them between sheets of waxed paper, tightly covered in plastic wrap, for up to 2 days or freeze, enclosed in a sealable plastic bag, for up to 1 month. Let thaw at room temperature or defrost in the microwave.

10 Gluten-Free Breakfast Recipes

Most of you know that my life has been upside down the past month or so, moving and getting settled. I appreciate all of the emails, messages, and tweets from all of you during my tough time. Carolyn, a gluten free maven and blogger from All Day I Dream About Food asked me if she could put together a “guest post” on gluten-free breakfast recipes to help me out with my workload during this busy time. I am so thankful and honored to share these 10 gluten free breakfast recipes that she has put together below. Take it Away Carolyn..

Whether you gluten-free by choice or by necessity, breakfast can be one of the toughest meals of the day.  Many breakfast foods like toast, cereal and pancakes are traditionally made with wheat flour and so are off-limits.  And sometimes the gluten-free versions are so full of sugar, they aren’t much healthier!  But I’ve rounded up some great gluten-free breakfast ideas that are healthy, easy to make, and low in sugar.  These will keep you full until lunchtime and you won’t miss the wheat one little bit! Enjoy these 10 gluten-free breakfast recipes starting with Alison’s Grain Free Granola via Ingredients, Inc (pictured above).
