Gluten-Free Recipe: Blueberry Coconut Pancakes
For those mornings when you want a little something special for breakfast, but don't want to put a lot of time in. This is a huge crowd pleaser- young and old alike! This flour-less wonder is not only gluten, grain, and refined sugar free, but it's low glycemic index, Paleo and GAPS approved, higher in protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals, and lower in carbohydrate and calories than conventionally made wheat-based pancakes. Coconut flour is a healthy, gluten-free alternative to highly processed, nutritionally devoid wheat flours. Chow down and feel great about it!
