Hippity, hoppity…hop! Look what’s for Easter breakfast!

As most of you, who have experience with gluten-free baking know, xanthan gum (or guar gum) are necessary ingredients for a non-crumbly, manageable dough or batter. After many, many (I gave up counting!) attempts at trying to bake without  the ‘glue’, I almost gave up!  I do still use xanthan gum in many of my recipes, but I would prefer not to.  Today, I found an alternative, for these lekker pancakes (flapjacks).

I’m not very artistic (quite a challenge for a foodie blogger, I tell you!), but if I could do this, then children also can (with adult supervision, of course)!

  1. Measure out the gluten free flours in a jug
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, place the flours, salt, and sugar
  3. Add the oil
  4. Gradually add the milk, whilst whisking or stirring with a spoon
  5. In a pan (I used a non-stick, so very little oil needed), place a small amount of oil and heat
  6. Use a spoon to scoop out the amount of batter you want, and spread into the pan
  7. Fry on a low-medium heat, until cooked on both sides
  8. Now the fun part – decorate ANY WAY you like!
  9. Enjoy!


As you can see, I had fun!  Let your imagination hop run wild!
