Spelt Pancake Mix
Again- here is something my hubby can make us easily when we are both tired. I’m so grateful that maple syrup is an OK sugar source on Low Fodmap. Enjoy the recipe!
4 cups spelt flour
3 tablespoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
(1 T. vital wheat gluten, optional)
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Pour and store in an air-tight container. Use within 3 months.
(I added 1 T. vital wheat gluten to see if it would help the pancakes’ structure. Spelt is lower in gluten content than other wheat flours. It does contain gluten naturally, which helps with baking, but it still doesn’t bake quite the same as naturally high-gluten wheat flour.)
To make pancakes:
- In a bowl, combine 1 cup of dry pancake mix, 1 egg, 1 cup of lactose-free milk, 1 teaspoon oil or melted butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
- Makes 8 Pancakes
- Note: Did you know that the lid to a Truvia container also fits a standard size Ball Mason jar? Other lids that fit, too: Planter’s Natural Peanut Butter, and Kraft Parmesean Cheese.
