Gluten-free pancakes

Gluten-free pancakes
Make a basic gluten-free pancake mix and then add beet root powder, chia seeds, and orange zest.  So good, and the beet root powder makes them pink!  You can add as much or as little as you like.
My recipe is similar to this:
1 C gluten-free flour mix (King Arthur, Bob's Red Mill, etc)
1 egg
1 tsp baking powder
pinch baking soda and salt
freshly grated nutmeg, and sometimes some cinnamon
1 tsp orange zest
1-2 TBL chia seeds
3/4 C- 1 C milk (local, organic, non-homogenized cow's milk or nut milk)
1-2 TBL beet root powder
3-4 TBL coconut oil or butter (I melt it in the cooking pan and then pour most of it into the pancake mixture, leaving a bit in the pan to cook the pancakes in)
Whisk everything together.
Can also add berries and/or nuts while cooking.
Serve with real maple syrup, honey, or berry sauce.

I do not suggest using most gluten-free flour mixes a lot, as they can still contain starches that spike your blood sugar quite high.  I have not tried this with almond or coconut flour. The nutmeg and orange zest give it great flavor, and the chia seeds add a nice light crunch. They are great serves with real maple syrup.
