Gluten-Free Cinnamon Oat Pancakes
Start your weekend off right with my favorite easy-to-make GF breakfast - fun for the whole family!
Standard pancakes are fraught with butter and refined ingredients that disrupt digestion and promote inflammation. This tasty gluten-free pancake recipe is high in fiber, low in sugar and fat free - a perfect combination for those who struggle to digest fats and wheat.
The combination of cinnamon and honey offers a synergistic effect – when consumed together, they spark immunity, improve digestion, help to reduce cholesterol, and improve heart health. Honey is a personal favorite of mine because of its antimicrobial properties.
