Amazing Foods For Health Pancakes and Cinnamon Raisin Cookies

gluten free jacksonville amazing foods pancakes and cookies

On a lazy Sunday I decided to do some gluten-free baking. Recently Amazing Foods For Health sent me gluten-free pancakes and gluten-free oatmeal raisin cookie mix. While I try not to eat too many carbs and processed foods, after running the Gate River Run I had a few extra calories to spare and my husband absolutely loves oatmeal raisin cookies so I had a willing assistant to help with the taste testing.

Gluten Free Pancakes

I started the morning with some pancakes. The ingredients were easy and things that I almost always have on hand.  Nothing is more annoying than weird ingredients that I have to make a special trip to the grocery store for. gluten free jacksonville amazing foods pancakes

We are dairy-free as well we we used So Delicious almond milk instead of regular milk and added in some extra flax seed for added fiber.gluten free jacksonville so delicous almond milk

The pancakes batter came out thicker than I usually make so I added in some water .gluten free jacksonville amazing foods pancakes

I followed the instructions on the box and they still came out pretty thick but they cooked really nicely and were delicious! I paired it with some turkey bacon and a cup of coffee and it was a nice little breakfast!

Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

While I had the mixing bowl out I figured I would go ahead and make the cookies too! Again the ingredients were easy and the only real pre-planning was to leave the butter out to soften.

I used Earth Balance instead of regular butter. gluten free jacksonville earth balance

While the box stated that it made 30 cookies this batch only made 18 cookies and take note they don’t get much bigger than the size they are when you put on the cookie sheet.  Also they came out a little dry, I may substitute coconut oil instead of the Earth Balance next time so they come out a little more chewy.  But they were delicious and I can honestly say that half of the plate below was gone within 10 minutes!

All in all they were both delicious.  I don’t think you would even notice that they are gluten-free.  They cooked easy and tasted so yummy. Looks like the only place to purchase these items in Jacksonville is the Walmart Supercenter on San Pablo Road S.

Gluten-Free Apple Cinamon Quinoa Pancakes

I love lazy Sundays!  Lounging in pajamas, surfing the web, drinking coffee and making a BIG breakfast!

Don’t tell anyone, but recently I discovered that Big Lots has Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-free products at a HUGE discount!!!  I recently loaded up on gluten-free: pancake mix, pizza dough and corn muffin mix. So one Sunday morning I thought I would get creative with my Sunday morning breakfast and make a huge batch of pancakes.bobs red mill pancake mix gluten free jacksonville

Lately I have been having fun trying new things in my pancakes to add some additional nutritional value. I had some quinoa in my pantry and because of its high protein content and versatility I thought I would add some to my pancakes.

To Prepare Quinoa
Prepare quinoa as directed on the box.  Boil 1/2 cup quinoa in 1 cup water, let simmer until water disappears.  Add 2 tbsp agave (or honey, brown sugar) and 2 tsp of cinnamon. After fully cooked set aside and allow to cool just a bit.

To prepare pancakes

Pancakes

1 ½ cups of Bob’s Red Mill ®Gluten-Free Pancake Mix
1 large egg
¾ cup milk (cow, soy, rice,almond)
1 tbsp vegetable oil

Combine Bob’s Red Mill ® Gluten-Free Pancake Mix, egg, milk and vegetable oil. Blend all ingredients in blender, mixer or whisk vigorously in bowl until thoroughly mixed. Add quinoa, blend until distributed evenly throughout the batter. Let batter stand and pre-heat nonstick griddle to medium high temperature. Lightly oil or spray griddle with cooking or baking spray. For test pancake, pour scant ¼ cup batter onto griddle and cook until top is bubbly. Turn and cook until golden brown. Adjust the temperature as needed. If necessary adjust batter by adding more pancake mix or milk one tbsp. at a time. Continue with remaining batter. Makes eight 4-ince pancakes. Serves four (2 4-inch pancakes per serving).

I made the entire package which means you just need to double all of the measurements that are on the package. I used almond milk instead of regular milk.

To prepare apple compote:
I noticed on the side of the package a very, very easy recipe for an apple compote. I had the ingredients so I thought I would make it. Sometimes it is nice to add something other than syrup to your pancakes.

2 medium apples, diced
¼ cup of sugar
1tsp ground cinnamon
1tbsp cornstarch
Dash of sea salt
½ tsp lemon juice
1 cup water

Place the diced apples in a saucepan. Add the other ingredients, except the water, and stir over medium heat. Cook until the mixture becomes thick and the apples are soft. Slowly add in the water a littleat a time, allowing the mixture to thicken. Add enough of the water to make sauce the consistency that will run over the edge of pancakes.

Instead of sugar I added agave nectar and instead of cornmeal I added rice flour. It did the trick, however, the agave and water made it a little runny so I may have had to add a little more rice flour than the recipe called for.

Everything was delicious! The pancakes were thick and hearty and VERY filling while the compote was light and perfectly sweet. One thing, I may peel the apples next time. I made a huge batch of these and was able to freeze them in individual serving size zip lock bags. I grabbed a bag each morning this week to warm up when I got to work. Because of the protein in the quinoa it held me over until right at lunch time.
