Living in the ‘allergy world’ is not as bad as it seems. Some might disagree with me but I rarely feel like I’m being deprived. However there are a couple things I miss: everything bagels, pancakes and sourdough bread bowls. I still haven’t found good gluten-free substitutes for the bagels and sourdough bread bowls (have any suggestions?!) but I have found pretty tasty GF pancakes.
Trader Joe’s is an amazing place. If you didn’t know that you should probably take a trip over to your local store. I’m mildly obsessed with the place. A while back I was chatting with the lady who was ringing me up (they’re always so nice!), I said I was having to eat gluten-free and she asked if I had tried TJ’s frozen pancakes. Since I hadn’t she picked me up a box and I am SO glad she did.
There are 3 mini-pancakes that come in a pack, with 6 packs in a box. They’re not only gluten-free but dairy-free as well! That means that both Lizzy and I can enjoy them!
Take them out of the plastic wrapping and pop them in the microwave to defrost. Then stick them in the toaster for a few minutes.
They come out nice and crispy on the edges and a little soft and mushy in the middle, just like I like ‘em. I top them with a little ‘I can’t believe it’s not butter’ and a little bit of Agave syrup. Delish!
I have to be honest and say that I would eat these little guys even if I didn’t have an allergy!
Speaking of which I think they’re calling my name right now……
