Gluten-Free Pancakes

The weekend is over. It is Monday. I feel I deserve a treat lunch. Pancakes for sure. And gluten-free pancakes because I felt like experimenting and I wanted to add a new recipe to my free-from section of the blog.

Gluten free pancakes served with carmelised banana

Gluten-free oats, as the name suggests, are free from gluten. That means they are grown on a farm whereby is it not possible for cross-contamination to occur. Some people who have Coeliac disease cannot tolerate oats, even GF oats, due to the present of a protein called avenin which similar to gluten. If you have Coeliac disease and are sensitive to avenin, these pancakes will not be suitable. Try replacing the oats with gluten-free flour.

Hope you enjoy!
