Fruity Pancakes

I had been craving pancakes. Not really sure why, probably because I knew that I'd just about never be able to have pancakes while eating out ever again, so I decided to search for good gluten-free AND dairy-free pancakes. The dairy-free made me get a little creative. Creative, but tasty!

Fruity Pancakes (GF, DF, Vegan)

  • Your favorite GF pancake mix (I chose GF Pantry)
  • Fresh, organic orange juice
  • 5-6 Fresh, organic strawberries
  • 1/2 c Frozen, organic blueberries
  • 1 egg (or 1/2 mashed banana for a vegan version)
  • Ghee (clarified butter aka dairy-free butter) OR your fav vegan butter
  • Olive oil
  • Organic coconut oil

Organic Coconut Oil


GF pancake mix

Finely chop strawberries and set aside. Follow the directions of your GF pancake mix except for the milk. Use the orange juice oz-for-oz instead of the milk. (So if your mix calls for 1c of milk, use 1c of orange juice instead). If you are opting for the vegan route, use 1/2 mashed banana for each egg the recipe calls for. (So if your mix calls for 2 eggs, use 1 whole banana and mash it instead). Mix all your ingredients in a bowl. Add chopped strawberries and blueberries to pancake mix. Mix well. Add coconut oil to pan. Use 1/2c measuring cup to scoop pancakes. Put desirable amount of Ghee on pancake immediately after the pancake is removed from the pan. Makes 6 very delicious pancakes.

I used a minimal amount sugar-free syrup. I probably won't use syrup at all next time, they really didn't need it.
