2. Link back to this post on the post with the recipe you have linked.

This week I thought I would get back to those adaptions for Once a Month Mom.  Sohere they are!  In two weeks I will be posting the dinners.  I will not be putting the instructions and grocery lists up as they were too much of a time thing for me which in the long run prevented me from getting posts up (bummer)but I figure the recipes are the important part.

Head over to Once a Month Mom for the big day instructions (just be sure to use your good judgement on what applies to your gluten and dairy free selves).  For the grocery listscut and paste to Word or your favorite application the ingredients for each recipe.  Sort out by type of food or area of the store as you chooseor just leave as is.  Happy cooking!

February 2010 Once a Month Mom Gluten & Dairy Free Adapted Breakfasts & Lunches

Gluten & dairy free pancake muffins.

Angela’s Note:  I would make one batch filled or with a mix-inthen another batch plain or with cinnamon sugar topping.  I made some (with the same amount of batter per muffin) in a canoe pan which the kids thought were fun and very easy to dip.

GFCF Pancake Muffins (mix a single batch at a time)

Author/Source:  Angela from

Makes about 17 of plain or filled muffins.  If adding mix-insexpect more depending on type of mix-in added.

2 1/4 cups gluten free bean based flour blend (or 1/2 cup garfava flour1/4 c sourgum flour3/4 cup corn or potato starchand 3/4 cup tapioca starch)

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3/4 teaspoon xanthan gum

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups GFCF milk substitute (ie: almondriceetc.)

2 eggs

4 Tablespoons oil

2 Tablespoons maple syrup

Optional for filled muffins:  17 teaspoons jamfruit compote or filling of choice.

Optional if cinnamon sugar topped:  1 Tablespoon sugar or cane juice crystals and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon blended.

Optional if want things mixed into your muffins:  Check this post for mix-in options.  Use the amounts specified.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Oil the cups of a muffin tin well.  Set aside.

Whisk the dry ingredients together in a bowl.  Mix the wet ingredients together until blended then add to the dry ingredients.  Stir until well blended together (use the whisk attachment of my mixer or an immersion blender).  There may still be some small lumpsbut try not to have too many.  Set 3/4 cup of batter aside.

If making filled muffins: In oiled muffin tinplace 1/4 cup batter.  Top with 1 level teaspoon for desired filling.  Lightly press filling into bater until level with batter.  Cover filling with 1 Tablespoon of reserved batter.  Leave plain or sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon sugar.

If making plain muffins: You do not to set aside 3/4 cup of batter.  In an oiled muffin tin place a scant 1/3 cup of bater.  Leve plain or sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

If adding mix-ins: After batter is blended add mix-ins of choice.  You do not need to set aside 3/4 cup batter.  Place a scant 1/3 cup batter in each oiled muffin tin.  Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar or chopped nuts as desired.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes until golden and cooked through.  Allow to cool in pan for a couple of minutesthen remove.  Serve with your favorite pancake topping if desired and enjoy!

To freeze: Allow to cool completely.  Place in a freezer ziplockremove as much air as possiblelabel and freeze.

To serve: Thaw and heat trough.  Serve with favorite pancake toppings.



I haven’t made the granolabut I suspect you could lower the oil in the recipe a bit.  I may try it this weekend if I have some gluten free oats laying around here.

If you need an entirely oat-free granola try thisthisor this one.  Or you could make the below recipe with a blend of buckwheatquinoa and rice flakes in place of the gluten free oats.

Transfer mixture to a large bowl and cool the mixture in the fridge. Stir in the egg whites. Using plastic wraproll out pie crust. Using an overturned bowl (about 5 inches across) cut out circles about 3 or 4 at a time from each piece of dough. Gather all scraps togetherroll outand cut. Place 1/4 cup filling on one side of a dough circle. Wet the edges of the dough with water. Fold the dough over to form a half circle. Pinch the edges of the dough together. Crimp the edges with a fork. Repeat the process until all the filling is used. (You can freeze at this point if you would like to cook them later. They must be frozen completely before adding to freezer bags. To freeze cooked continue on.)
