My lunchbox is cooler than your lunchbox

My lunchbox really is getting cooler by the day.

Yep, that’s right. Blueberry vanilla pancakes covered in fresh blueberries. Vegan + gluten free!

Side note – I’ve never again enjoyed my daily lunches as much as I did when I sported boxes like this, complete with the matching thermos:

I followed Angela’s recipe for blueberry vanilla bean pancakes.ย I have never been a big reader of her blog, but I’ve been visiting it more and more recently as I try to incorporate more vegan cooking into my diet. So far it’s been great, and I’m developing trust in her opinion!

What I love most about these pancakes is the lack of added sugar – yet they’re still sweet. The only changes I made were adding sweetened coconut (same amount), using gluten-free flour (Bob’s Red Mill), and adding the blueberries to the batter to melt inside the pancakes – turned out to be a great idea! [pats self on back]

Normally pancakes are a big no-no for me. I don’t know what it is about them, but they always make me feel so sick. These are vegan and gluten free, and as I said, only mildly sweet.

Tomorrow I shall top with sliced banana and a teeny bit of maple syrup.

  1. OMG, those look amazing! Probably shouldn’t have looked at this before breakfast; now I’m even MORE starving! I’ve never really tried gluten free baked goods because I assume they’re gross. Sorry, it’s true. But I’m thinking I should explore it more because I have like ALL of the symptoms of someone with gluten intolerance:/

    • Me too, that’s why I tried it. And I agree, I thought they’d be gross. Which is why I spent the money and bought the brand that I always see highly recommended, even though it was 4x more expensive than the other brand, which was comparable to regular flour. I honestly didn’t even notice, and in fact preferred these. Let me know if you try it, or have any luck with other gluten free products!
