gluten free pancake mix

Pancakes on Sunday are a tradition that I have carried over from my childhood into my own adult family. And since going gluten free that has been more difficult. I had been using the Arrowhead Mills mix but it's made with rice flour and rice flour is always a little gritty, I think. So I decided to try making my own and I think they came out really well (the real test will be waffles).

I used:
1 cup amaranth flour*
1 cup coconut flour*
1 cup tapioca flour
1 cup sorghum flour
3 tbsp baking powder
Mix together well, store in a glass jar. When you're ready to make pancakes, mix 1 cup of mix with 2 eggs, 1 tbsp oil, and enough milk (whatever kind your family uses except rice) to make it pancake batter-ey.


*organic--if I could find the other flours organic that's what I would use.

Ummm, sounds very yum! I am thinking right now of another mom who might appreciate this recipe. Might you sneak some over to her after she has her little one? It will happen soon I think.
