Pumpkin Pancakes or Waffles (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
1 ½ cups gluten-free flour mix
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1 large egg
1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
¾ cup canned or pureed pumpkin (I used leftover candied sweet potatoes & added less sugar)
1 cup water, more or less
In a medium bowl, mix the pancake mix and spices together. In another bowl, whisk the egg and the brown sugar together. Stir in the oil, pumpkin and most of the water.
Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined adding more water to obtain the right consistency.
