A delicious gluten free breakfast which includes some of my favorite summertime fruits. Hubby and I went blueberry picking this week. The berries were almost too ripe! The bushes are so high I was standing on top of the tailgate of the pickup truck and still couldn’t reach the top. Yellow jackets were everywhere enjoying the juice inside the blueberries. They actually curl their bodies around the blueberries to hang on while drinking! We had to be so careful not to pick a blueberry that had a yellow jacket clinging onto the backside. Didn’t get stung! Banana Blueberry Sour Cream Pancakes, Country Grits & Sausage Casserole served with Georgia peaches is one of my favorite breakfasts! So much yumminess in one meal. Hope you enjoy these recipes. The pancakes are so moist and full of flavor. The casserole is light in texture and packed with flavor.
GLUTEN FREE BANANA BLUEBERRY SOUR CREAM PANCAKES
2 Cups Pamela’s Gluten Free Baking & Pancake Mix
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 Cup gluten free sour cream
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 Cup water
2 TBSP oil
1 1/2 Cups blueberries
Mix all ingredients together except blueberries. Spray heated non-stick pan with PAM (the non flour can). Place 3 TBSP batter on pan, flatten slightly and add desired amount of blueberries on top over med-high heat. Flip to cook other side of pancake after the pancake begins to set on bottom and sides. Serve with warm maple syrup. If you have any left over, freeze them 2 or 3 at a time in small freezer bags. When ready to eat at a later date, simple take them out of bag and place on microwave safe plate. Cook in microwave for about 50 seconds. Just a delicious the second time around!
