Gluten-Free Blueberry Polenta Pancakes


Gluten-Free Polenta Pancakes A Passionate PlateHappy Sunday morning to you! We’re enjoying a lazy start to the day and happy tummies, thanks to these scrumptious Gluten-Free Blueberry Polenta Pancakes. I haven’t been making a big deal about it here, but Marvin and I have both cut way back on gluten and carbs recently, so pancakes have been pretty much off the menu. Obviously these pancakes are not carb-free, but they are light, fluffy, tasty,  gluten-free, and a nice reward for being “good” all week.

I adapted this recipe slightly from the Hollyhock Garden to Table Cookbook (we’re giving away a copy next week!). The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup whole wheat flour or 1/2 cup of the Hollyhock homemade gluten-free flour mix. I just used the versatile Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Flour Mix which worked perfectly.
