Gluten Free Pancake Recipe

One of my favorite breakfast foods is pancakes. Since going gluten free, I’ve had pancakes less often than usual. For awhile, we were buying Pamela’s Ultimate Baking and Pancake Mix but it got to be too expensive. I just couldn’t justify adding that into our food budget. I had to come up with some recipes that would be gluten free using items we normally had on hand.

No poo for long hair Before showering, use a boar bristle brush to brush your hair from your scalp to the ends. A natural bristle hairbrush will distribute the natural oils from your hair.  With long hair, you may need to use more baking soda and water mixture.  Doubling the recipe should work. No Poo for Dry Hair Cut back on the amount of baking soda you are using to wash your hair if your hair becomes dry.  You also may need to rinse with more of the apple cider vinegar conditioner.  Use a little coconut oil or even joboba oil on […]
