Try This Gluten-Free Pancake Recipe For A Protein-Fueled Brekkie

Take a break from your smashed avo on toast.

gluten-free pancakes

Pancakes are synonymous with lazy Sunday mornings (which may or may not involve a hangover), cheat days and special occasions which call for breakfast in bed. However the humble little pancake has come along, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be the sugar and gluten-laiden ‘sometimes’ food it once was.
In fact, with the right ingredients, pancakes can actually make a nutritious breakfast option. Take the recipe below for example. It’s made predominately from almond meal meaning it’s naturally gluten-free, and with the addition of eggs, milk (dairy or other) and yoghurt, it’s the perfect protein-packed meal.
The apple and maple syrup (optional) will help satisfy your sweet tooth and a sprinkle of cinnamon will help stabilize blood sugar levels so you won’t crash and burn come mid-morning.
