Coconut Flour Pancakes

Okay. You know I have to be pretty excited about a recipe if I am actually posting to my blog. You know, my blog that hasn't seen me since May of this year....and infrequently before that. And I used to blog. Before Kitchen in the Market. It kinda eats up a lot of my time.

Back to the recipe. I have been eating gluten-free for about 3 years now (!), but have had some difficulty finding a pancake recipe I really liked....and that the family liked. This is the one.

gluten-free Coconut Flour Pancakes
Coconut Flour Pancakes
makes about 12 pancakes

1C brown rice flour
1/3C coconut flour
2T tapioca starch
2T baking powder
1T sugar
2T coconut oil, melted
2 eggs, beaten
1 3/4C milk

-whisk all dry ingredients together in a medium bowl
-create a well in the center and add the wet ingredients
-stir together until blended (the coconut flour may clump, so try to get them incorporated)
-if the batter is a little too thick add about 1/4C milk at a time until you reach your desired consistency. (coconut flour is high in fiber and will soak up quite a bit of liquid)
-let sit while griddle heats up
-using a 2 oz (#16) scoop, pour batter onto heated griddle 
-cook until golden brown on underside (some bubbles will form on top, but not as much as regular flour pancakes), then flip to cook other side
