Soaked Pancakes Gluten free-Nicholas turns 8

Nicholas at Idaho Elite Gym for Paisley bday
 Nicholas is eight today and we made him pancakes. These are very good and good for you. You can make it not gluten free also. I am so proud of him and his accomplishments. Some days are so hard and he conquers and rises. Autism is just a diagnosis, we make  the plan and can make each day better for him! Today he is planning water balloons, pet store, lego's, seafood for dinner, cake and homemade ice cream, and the championship basketball game! Butler is his chosen team, he loves their coach! GO Butler!!

I found these on Heavenly homemaker and twinked them to our gluten free liking! Give them a try, the sourdough flavor is good. Nick liked them and they are filling.
I make them by soaking my flour in buttermilk overnight which breaks down the phytates and makes them more digestible, thus creating sourdough pancakes.  Here’s the recipe:
Simple Soaked Pancakes
1 cup whole wheat flour (or whatever grain you want) i use 1 cup brown rice flour and 1/4 cup oat flour
1 cup cultured buttermilk i like hungarian
1 egg or two egg whites
3 T. melted butter (or oil)
1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. sea salt
Stir the flour and buttermilk together in a glass bowl.  Cover with a cloth and leave on the counter overnight.  In the morning, stir in the egg, melted butter, baking powder and salt.  Whisk together, adding extra milk or buttermilk for the desired batter thickness you prefer. I add kefir to thin the dough down to liking.
Cook pancakes on a well buttered, hot skillet or griddle, flipping once bubbles begin to form.  I used a griddle and set it at 350. Serve with real maple syrup, honey, applesauce, jelly, or any of your favorite pancake toppings!
