Did you know that May is Allergy Awareness Month? To that end we wanted to share two things, first our recipe for delicious Vegan, Gluten-free, Dairy-free pancakes and second, our new Allergy Alert labels with icons
Let’s start with pancakes! Our Pumpkin Pancake recipe was adapted from a recipe we found on Weelicious
to make it gluten-free. We don’t even like pumpkin but we love these pancakes! And we make them with chickpea flour for extra protein. Here’s our version of the recipe:Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe, Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy FreeIngredients:
- 1.5 cups gluten free flour. Note: chickpea or quinoa flour provides protein
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger (optional)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1.25 cup soy milk or almond milk
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp veg oil
- 1/2 can of pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
- Measure dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix well.
- Whisk together wet ingredients in another bowl
- Add wet ingredients to flour mixture and stir just until blended, some lumps fine
- Lightly grease griddle or frying pan with oil and heat to medium
- When hot, pour batter. I use 1/4 cup measure for mine.
- Cook until bubbles form on surface and bottom is brown.
- Flip pancakes to cook other side. Repeat with rest of batter and re-oil pan if needed in between. Serve with maple syrup
If – and that’s a big if - you have any leftover pancakes let them cool and then freeze them in a reusable container. We place parchment paper between each pancake so we can take out only what we need. Then it’s easy to remove them from the freezer for breakfast or snacks and reheat them in the toaster. If you have to reheat them for a crowd, place them in the oven at 300F and heat 10 minutes or until heated through. Looking for more allergy-free recipes? Weelicious has a whole heap of them
And as for labels, we wanted to share our stylish new smaller Allergy Alert labels with individual icons for different allergies. Personalize them with a name and stick them on water bottles, lunch containers and gear to clearly identify your child’s allergies on all their belongings. We still have our larger Allergy Alert labels that can be personalized with a name, a list of allergies and optional contact information.
We know that parents of kids with allergies (and grown ups with allergies!) have to be super cautious about what they eat and making safe choices so we hope our allergy labels can support that. And our pumpkin pancakes too!
