1 tbsp flaxseed meal
3 tbsp lukewarm water
1 cup garbanzo bean flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp kosher or sea salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup water
8 slices allergen-friendly bread
1 pint fresh berries
4 tbsp dairy-free, soy-free margarine, optional
1/2 cup pure maple syrup or agave nectar
- Preheat a skillet or nonstick griddle over medium-high heat.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the flaxseed meal and water. Let stand for 5 minutes and whisk again; it will be gelatinous. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon and salt.
- Again whisk the flaxseed mixture and add to the flour mixture along with vanilla.
- Whisk in water 1/3 cup at a time. The batter will be thick.
- Pour batter into a shallow pan.
- Dunk each slice of bread into batter, soaking each side. Gently shake off excess batter and place bread slices onto hot, lightly greased skillet. Cook until golden, about 1 - 2 minutes. Flip bread over and cook until other side is golden, approximately 1 - 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining bread slices. Batter will thicken as it sits. Add 1 tbsp water as needed to thin batter.
- Serve hot with fresh berries or seasonal fruit, margarine and pure maple syrup or agave nectar.
