My SUN is celiac and on the spectrum, but he’s also an astronaut. So, of course, I have to fill his tummy with something yummy, yet out of this world! For a celiac mom, when you run out of your favorite gluten free pancake mixes (Pamela’s Pancake Mix and Hungry Jack Funfetti Mix), it’s a little daunting to reach into the back of your cupboard for that “in case of emergencies” sack of Bob’s Red Mill gluten free flour. But this is an emergency! Well, sort of. Your kid wants pancakes, and you want your kid to consume all the nutrients they possibly can to make up for that time pre-diagnosis when they were hardly absorbing any.

After I reached, I googled. And when I googled, I found Bob Mill’s Gluten Free Pancake Recipe. Whenever I cook from scratch, I start with a fairly simple recipe, and then I make a few minor substitutions here or there based on my kid’s dietary needs, what my kid likes to eat, and what ingredients I already have at home. So, when it came to delivering an out of this world pancake breakfast for my favorite celiac sun, I started with Bob Mill’s Gluten Free Pancake Recipe, and made it our own.

Outer Space Pancake Recipe

Ingredients

1 1/3 cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Flour

1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 egg
1 egg white
1 pureed banana
1 cup of pureed blueberries
*NOTE: The bananas, blueberries and agave nectar eliminated the need to add water, and fueled enough flavor to reach outer space!

2 smaller pancakes cut out with cookie cutters (Stars)
