Not a new years resolution but this month I decided to do a trial of the gluten free diet to see if it would help with some of my autoimmune issues. My husband has been doing a modified paleo diet and our family eats a pretty healthy diet, I was ready. So far I am 2 weeks down and I am doing ok. I have to admit though I have had some crazy cravings. Add to that it isn’t that much fun watching your family eat things that are so delicious when you can’t eat them also. So I have started searching for gluten free substitutes. There had to be a solution and there was.  There are a wide variety of gluten free flours that you can by and I am slowly starting to experiment with them. First up has been Almond Flour. A year ago I made some Paleo bread for friends along with some macaroons but that is where my experience with almond flour ends. I was unsure if I could really turn almond flour into pancakes and if I did how they would turn out. I was happily surprised. These pancakes were quick and easy to make and delicious. They were denser than a typical pancake but that is to be expected with the almond flour. Try them for yourself!
