Gluten-free Lavender Honey Pancakes

Every so often, I have a brilliant idea that is actually brilliant.

This was one of those ideas.

I didn’t have any meats thawed for dinner. 4:30 pm rolled around and I found myself wondering what I was going to feed the children for dinner…

And then, it hit me. Brinner!

I’ll make pancakes!

As I was grinding the rice for flour, I wondered to myself what adding a drop of lavender oil would do to otherwise ordinary and blah pancakes.

The answer?

Make. Them. Magical.

Gluten-free Lavender Honey Pancakes

  • 2 cups rice flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp baking soda
  • 1/2 Tbsp salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp cane sugar (optional)
  • 1 drop Lavender essential oil*
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk**
  1. Preheat skillet or griddle and melt 2 Tbsp butter.
  2. Mix flour, salt, baking soda, salt, and sugar together.
  3. Add eggs, buttermilk, and lavender oil.
  4. Mix well, and pour batter (about 1/4c spoonfuls) onto the hot griddle. Cook until edges are slightly dry, pancakes should be golden brown (about 1-2 minutes each side.)
  5. Serve with butter and drizzle honey on top, with a side of fruit, bacon or sausage, and a cup of coffee and boom.

World’s best pancakes.

* Lavender oil should be 100% free of pollutants or carrier oils; use your best judgement and read the packaging of your oils to be sure they’re safe for consumption.

** Cheater buttermilk= 1 1/3c whole milk+ splash of vinegar
