Breakfast Idea: Quick Gluten-free Pancakes from the Box

I get many email from my readers asking for ways to ease into the gluten-free process so, while I am a big proponent of making “real food”, I recognize that there are many of you who don’t like cooking period, let alone anything from scratch! So I am going to start highlighting certain products that I come across that either 1) aid you in the transition to going gluten-free, 2) will help those of you who are not fans of cooking and 3) are great quick meals for those days when a home-cooked meal just isn’t going to happen.

Today, I want to tell you about Bisquick’s Gluten-free Pancake mix.

My father in-law brought this to me one day because he found it at his local market. While I prefer to make my simple buckwheat pancakes from scratch, in a pinch, I have made this boxed version and have to admit, they are quite good!  The ingredients do require that you add an egg and since we are trying to be egg-free whenever possible, I modified this by adding 1 Tablespoon flaxseed meal and 3 Tablespoons of water. This is an egg substitute sometimes known as “flax eggs” and works well for most baked goods. I also used grapeseed oil instead of canola or vegetable oil and it worked great!

You should be able to find this at your local supermarket but if you don’t, here is the link to Amazon where you can purchase it in a 3 pack:

Have you found any gluten-free “processed” items that you’d like to let us know about? Tell me in the comments and I’ll check them out. I just may include them in an upcoming “round up” post highlighting those products!
