Gluten Free Bisquick Pancakes

This recipe is from GlutenFreely, and commonly located on Bisquick Gluten Free Mix. I found this recipe to be simple to make, and taste just like traditional pancakes.

Start to Finish: 10 minutes
Yields 8-10

Ingredients
1 cup Gluten Free Bisquick mix
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 Tbsp olive oil

Directions
1. In medium bowl, stir ingredients until well blended.
2. Heat greased griddle, pour slightly less than 1/4 cupfuls onto hot griddle.
3. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook until golden. If the pancakes are browning too fast and turning out darker than you prefer, turn the heat down.

Pancakes are endlessly versatile. Add blueberries, raisins, cinnamon, or nuts to boost nutrition or calories. Make pancakes for dessert by adding chocolate chips, cinnamon and sugar, and whip cream. Top pancakes with fresh fruit, powdered sugar, butter and/or syrup.

Double your batch to save leftovers for a busy week. Place leftovers on a  plate with plastic wrap, and store them  in the fridge. Reheat them in the toaster over for breakfast, quick snack or dessert.

Babies and kids love pancakes, but then again don’t we all. Pancakes are suitable for babies over the age of one. Enjoy and have fun!
