Gluten-free Plant-based Pancakes

  I'm back! Once during the last few weeks on a "raw vegan cleanse" I kept thinking about pancakes!  The following recipe is the result.  ** NOTE: Whisk together sweet and brown rice flours before starting recipe. So here is a great gluten-free banana pancake recipe that I tweaked until I liked it: Put the following  INGREDIENTS  in your blender: 1 Ripe Organic  Banana 1 T.  Vegetable Oil 1/2 tsp.  Celtic Sea Salt  (or to taste) 1 1/2 C. Nondairy  Milk  or other milk Pinch of  Nutmeg 1 T.  Cinnamon 2 T. Sugar or other sweetener  4 tsp.  Baking Powder . Easy Method for  Making Pancakes: Blend the above ingredients and then pour over: 1/2 C.  Sweet White Rice (gluten-free) Flour 1/2 C . Brown Rice (gluten-free) Flour Mix. Let sit for about 15 minutes. Pour about a 1/4 C. of batter into hot pan and flip when bubbles appear on all sides and elsewhere on panca

Ingredients: 1 C.     Steel Cut Oats 1/2 tsp. Salt  1/4 C.   Chia seed 1/2 C.  Coconut shreds 3 C.     Water 1/2 C.  Carob powder 1/4 C.  Fairtrade Raw Cane Sugar (I use Who
