After preparing my “Green Raviolis” and discovering the disappointing news that I did not actually own a shamrock shaped cookie cutter, I sought out to find one and make another recipe “shamrock shaped”!
I decided to make this Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancake recipe shamrock-shaped, and serve them with a side of my favorite cream cheese syrup… with a little festive green added!
These pancakes are similar to those served by Premium Gold at the Natural Products Expo West this weekend in Anaheim! They’re gluten-free, fluffy and delicious: a winning combination!
- 1 cup premium gold flax and whole grain gluten-free flour
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 dash salt
- 1 (1.23 oz) packet apple cinnamon oatmeal
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1 cup soy milk (or regular milk)
- 1 large egg
Begin by combining the first 6 ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Combine the next 3 ingredients in a small bowl then add to the dry ingredients.
Mix well, then pour the batter into an aluminum shamrock-shaped cookie cutter placed in a skillet over medium heat and coated with cooking spray.
Use tongs or a spatula to flip the cookie cutter after 3-4 minutes.
Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes then remove the pancake from the cookie cutter.
Now this process will go a lot faster with more than one cookie cutter, but if you only have one, you can still make it work!
Simply remove each pancake from the cookie cutter, then place it back into the skillet and pour the batter inside, then repeat the steps above.
Now on to that Green Cream Cheese Syrup!
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3-4 drops green food coloring
Simply use a hand mixer to blend all of the ingredients together and serve alongside these delicious pancakes for a festive St Patricks Day brunch!
These pancakes and syrup can be made in other shapes and other colors for any time of the year!
Check out the thick, fluffy texture of these delectable gluten-free delights! Yum!
