– Laura Hahn Carroll  


  • 2 cups gluten-free pancake mix (Cherrybrook Kitchen brand seems to work best)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • ½ cup blueberries


Preheat oven to 375° F.

Start by combining pancake mix, milk, eggs, oil, cinnamon, maple syrup and flaxseed in a large bowl. Next, add lemon zest along with blueberries and combine gently. Pour mix into lined muffin tins. Bake for 18-20 minutes.

Feel free to get creative and change up the flavors. Instead of blueberry, try banana, chocolate chips, strawberries or even sprinkles for a fun twist. Enjoy!
