Gluten Free Blackberry Pancakes with Coconut Yogurt Syrup

These Gluten Free Blackberry Pancakes with Coconut Yogurt Syrup are one of the first things that made me feel like I can still eat delicious food. A few weeks ago I found out from my doctor that I have been sick because I am allergic to wheat and now have to eat completely gluten free.
Gluten Free Blackberry Pancakes with Coconut Yogurt SyrupI am not going to lie, I was a little devastated, pretty much all my favorite foods have wheat. But after coming to grips with my new life and doing some research I have realized that although I can’t have wheat, there are still ways to create yummy recipes of the foods I love that are gluten free. Luckily there are so many options out there and a greater awareness of gluten free diets among stores and restaurants- making this new life of mine totally do-able. 🙂
The best part is that I am feeling A LOT better! I have a lot more energy and am all around much happier.
So a little about this recipe, I researched out a ton of different recipes for gluten free pancakes and actually failed my first attempt, but I finally put together a recipe that is incredible! They taste just like regular pancakes with the same fluffy texture. The most important thing is finding a good gluten free flour. I have quickly learned that they are not all the same! You need to find a good one that says it substitutes cup for cup with regular flour. I really like the Namaste Perfect Flour Blend Gluten Free Flour, I found a big bag of it at Costco. One thing I did realize is that you need to cook them a little lower, and a little longer than regular pancakes to make sure that they cook through in the center without burning on the surface. If you aren’t a blackberry fan, just leave them out, or substitute chocolate chips or another fruit, they will still taste amazing.
And the coconut yogurt syrup is TO DIE FOR! It is so incredibly yummy. It tastes just like the coconut syrups that they serve in Hawaii. I couldn’t stop stealing little tastes of it.

    Last fall, we found out three of us in my family have celiac disease. It’s been quite the change and learning curve. The hardest part is watching my 9 year old never get to eat any of the school bday treats. I would never wish it on anyone and I’m so sorry you can’t have it anymore either. But I do want to tell you that I am a huge fan of your recipes… I tell all my friends about your site. And I’m so excited that I will be able to start finding even more delicious recipes here now that you are posting GF ones. I feel so bad even saying that because it sounds so heartless, like your loss is my gain. And I don’t mean it that way at all!! I just want you to know you’re awesome and there are many of us who are so excited for GF recipes we know will be good because they come from you!!

      Thanks so much Heidi, it’s so nice to hear from someone that feels my pain, haha! I am excited too about the addition of gluten free recipes on the site that I will be working on. It’s a whole new adventure. I want to be able to figure out some really good tasting content that I will have as a resource for myself too. I thought these pancakes turned out fantastic so I’m sure I will be using this recipe a lot! I’ll be tagging everything with the gluten free tag so it’s easy to find them all too.
      Be sure to check out my gluten-free post I just did about Disneyland. I did a ton of research for that!
