The vast majority of breakfast foods in America require the use of gluten-containing grains.  We're going to show you how simple it is to eat deliciously gluten free.

We've done the sifting and sorting for you and have come up with some great ideas.  We hope you will love these gluten free breakfast recipes.

Garbanzo Bean Flour Pancakes 

Chickpea flour pancakes
  • 1 cup garbanzo bean flour (chickpea flour)
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 2 tbs olive oil  (more for cooking)

Directions For Chickpea Flour Pancakes:

  • Mix together the above ingredients into a batter.  It will look exactly like pancake batter.  You can let the batter sit for 10 minutes to two hours.  This allows for the batter to coagulate.

  • Make sure you have a pancake pan or skillet, and place one or two tablespoons of olive oil in the pan.  

  • Heat your pan with the olive oil, and place drops of batter into the heated pan, just like you would regular pancakes.  If you notice the olive oil being soaked up during cooking, add more.  Olive oil makes these pancakes taste wonderful.  

Let the pancakes sit, taking a peek every so often on the underside to see if they're brown.  Once they turn brown, flip them over and repeat the process with the rest of the batter.  You can save leftover batter or pancakes for the next day.

Note:  Cooking pancakes with chickpea flour takes a bit longer than white flour.

Quinoa Cereal Recipe:  Boil 1/2 cup quinoa and one cup of water for ten minutes.  Add cinnamon, blueberries and cashews.  Quinoa cereal makes superb gluten free breakfast recipes.
