They require just a handful of simple ingredients you may already have in your kitchen. Plus, they’re gluten-free and vegan/vegetarian, so the whole family can enjoy a stack!

Our favorite pancake toppings are fresh fruit, peanut butter, and (of course!) maple syrup. What does your family like on their pancakes?

  • Category: Breakfast

Ingredients

  • 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed (flax meal)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or sugar or honey)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup milk (or non-dairy substitute)
  • 3/4 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Instructions

  1. Grease a griddle, and preheat over medium heat. (Or you can use a pan on your stovetop.)
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, flax meal, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the maple syrup, vanilla, applesauce, and milk. Slowly pour the liquid into the dry ingredients, stirring continuously. Mix until you get the lumps out of the batter. Gently fold in the blueberries.

Notes

Not all gluten-free all purpose flours are the same. You may need to add an extra tablespoon or two of flour to get the right texture.

Here’s another recipe to add to your lunch recipe list – Avocado Egg Salad Sandwiches! They’re healthy, filling, and perfect for kids & adults alike. I love avocado and its nutrition, so I try to add it in our diet as much as I can. These sandwiches use avocado to replace the mayo used in traditional egg salad. I’d say that’s a healthier swap!

This avocado egg salad is vegetarian, gluten-free, and grain-free. Serve it on allergy-friendly bread if needed, or even in lettuce wraps! I love to pack it with fruit and nuts for a well-balanced lunch I feel good about sending my kids with. Enjoy!

One of my favorite parts of summer is having family & friends over to enjoy good food and each other’s company. I’m a true entertainer at heart!

We like to use our outdoor kitchen as much as possible during the summer, so having a ton of recipes to make on the grill is important. We always grill fresh zucchini and skewers, but I wanted to get some more ideas when it came to healthy BBQ recipes so my guests will really be impressed.

Yes, your breakfast can taste like dessert! This Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie Bowl is creamy, sweet, and a healthier way to indulge your sweet tooth.

I’m so excited to share this smoothie bowl recipe with you for a couple reasons! First, you know how much I love chocolate, especially paired with peanut butter. Is there a combination more delicious? I think not! My kids can never say no – and neither can I. ;)

Second, this recipe is from my friend Alison Lewis’ book 200 Best Smoothie Bowl Recipes. Yes, 200 recipes! Smoothies are a great way to pack in lots of fruits and veggies in your family’s diet, and smoothie bowls make them even more fun. They’re super creamy, and you can top them with all your favorite toppings. A great interactive meal for kids!

The big difference between a normal smoothie and a smoothie bowl is the texture. You want your smoothie bowl to be super thick – almost like soft-serve ice cream! Between the thick texture and the chocolate-peanut buttery deliciousness, this peanut butter cup smoothie bowl will have you thinking you’re enjoy dessert for breakfast.

200 Best Smoothie Bowl Recipes has every smoothie recipe you can think of, from kid-friendly recipes, green creations, dessert bowls, and even coffee and tea bowls for those of us that need our caffeine. Some of the recipes include Upside Down Apple Pie Smoothie Bowl, Green Coconut Smoothie Bowl, and Peach Paradise Smoothie Bowl. Can you say YUM?!

This Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie Bowl is creamy, sweet, and a healthier way to indulge your sweet tooth.

Smoothie bowls couldn’t be simpler to make. All you have to do is throw your ingredients in a blender, blend, and pour into bowl. You could even prep some DIY smoothie freezer packs ahead of time! Of course, I’d argue that the best part of a smoothie bowl is the toppings. The possibilities are endless! For this peanut butter cup smoothie bowl, we love banana, chocolate chips, chia seeds, and a touch of extra cocoa powder. I can never say no to more chocolate!

All of the recipes in 200 Best Smoothie Bowl Recipes are great for breakfast or snacking, and I know your kids will love them. Be sure to get your copy on Amazon!
