This morning I woke up early to a bright and sunny room. I could hear the fur-babies downstairs, my husband doing the dishes, and I could smell coffee. I also recalled a vague sense of being told there would be gluten free waffles for breakfast. As I got up I sadly realized, the guaranteed waffles were a dream and I must be really hungry.
No worries, though. The clean house, coffee, and sunshine were absolutely perfect 🙂
Gluten free pancakes and waffles can be really frustrating or really easy, just depends on the recipes and ingredients you use. And this goes for most gluten free recipes. One ingredient can make it the best thing you’ve ever tasted or the absolute worst creation you’ve ever made.
Luckily, there are many people creating, publishing, and sharing recipes so you don’t have to struggle to stay healthy and bellyache free while also being gluten free.
Recently I had the honor of joining 14 other health coaches, yogis, and wellness experts to create the Gluten Free Treats and Desserts: 22 Mouth-Watering Gluten Free Treats E-Book. Creator, Claudia Richey of DoshaFit took charge and organized the recipes, while we submitted and shared them.
And now I’m going to share them with you.
Each Friday, I will bring you one of the delicious recipes from the book, as well as the opportunity to download your own copy for free. Whether you are living the Gluten-Free life or not, theses treats and desserts are absolutely amazing (and many are also vegan!).
Today, I thought I’d start you off with some pancakes, just in case you wake up with dreams of breakfast cakes and waffles in the morning 🙂
