Being gluten free is hard enough, so what does one do when an egg allergy pops up on top of that? The usual answer is to buckle down and research. However, this time, I didn’t have to go far…by luck, Culture for Health’s Egg-Free Sourdough Pancakes recipe was recently published, and just what I was looking for! I was dancing for joy with this recipe, and so were my kids!
This recipe gives you the option to use a gluten free sourdough starter, since originally it is not gluten free. The added ingredient of ground chia or flax seeds enables this recipe to be egg free. Another bonus to this recipe is that you get fluffy pancake goodness – not the flat or crumbly results you get when using just a plain gluten free flour mixture…sourdough being the key! Our leftover brown rice sourdough starter worked perfectly.
And you won’t believe how easy they are to make.
So there’s not much to this gem of a discovery, simply…
- gather ingredients
- plop the batter into the frying pan
- flip when the magic occurs
- enjoy warm, delicious pancakes with your choice of toppings!
These are so good you’ll even find your family sneaking cold and plain pancakes throughout the day! And, the clever ones in your family might even ask if they can use the pancakes as slices of bread. Hooray for resourcefulness!
