Food Intolerance friendly Free From pancakes

Food Intolerance friendly Free From pancakes

We flippin’ love pancake day. With all those tasty toppings and competitive batter tossing activity, it’s one of those culinary points in the calendar we look forward to every year.

But what if you have a food intolerance? If you struggle with gluten, dairy or eggs, you might think that Shrove Tuesday is an event you need to avoid.

Fortunately, the booming Free From market has you covered. From plant-based milks to alternative flours, there are a wide variety of substitutes available, meaning you don’t have to miss out!

So, grab a whisk and get ready to whip up some delicious Free From pancake alternatives

Dairy free pancakes

There’s been a boom in the Free From milk market over the last decade. Everything from oat to hemp milk now fights for top billing on the supermarket shelf. If you need to swap out dairy in your pancakes there is a huge selection of alternative milks to tempt you, including:

  • Coconut
  • Hazelnut
  • Oak
  • Hemp
  • Almond
  • Rice
  • Tigernut
  • Soya

When it comes to choosing one, it really depends on your taste preference. Different dairy-free milks offer different flavours but it’s fantastic to know that there are many substitutes on offer so you don’t have to miss out.

If you’re looking for inspiration, take a look at this tasty BBC Food recipe for simple dairy free pancakes https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2920663/dairyfree-pancakes

Gluten free pancakes

Flour is a staple ingredient in pancakes but if you’re avoiding wheat or gluten, never fear, there are plenty of alternatives you can use to whip up a batch of these tasty treats.

Gluten free flours are becoming more readily available and alternatives like almond or coconut flour are common substitutes in a range of recipes.

We love the range of low-cost gluten free recipes available on Gluten Free On A Shoestring https://glutenfreeonashoestring.com/gluten-free-pancake-recipes/

Egg free pancake alternatives

There aren’t many key ingredients in pancakes (if you don’t include the many potential toppings!) but eggs are generally considered to be essential.

Thankfully it’s possible to replace these quite easily and still make delicious pancakes. Applesauce or banana are two alternatives which can work a treat, whilst also delivering the additional benefit of natural sweetness.

We love this simple and quick recipe from Tesco https://realfood.tesco.com/recipes/vegan-banana-pancakes.html

Smartblood Story - Julia's Intolerance to Dairy

Julia is a market trader, and also studying speech and language therapy. Julia has suffered with regular migraines for over 22 years, and has tried everything to get rid of them, even ice baths!

It wasn't until Julia had a Smartblood food intolerance test recommended to her by one of her friends that she found out that she had raised IgG antibody levels to many dairy products. Replacing these foods with others on the advice of a Smartblood nutritional therapist has made a big difference in Julia's life - her migraines have vanished, and she would recommend a Smartblood test to anybody.

It’s estimated that those with trigger foods actually react to between 4 and 6 ingredients and the results can be surprising. Anything from prawns to potatoes can present a problem.

If you think dairy is causing you discomfort, cut out the guesswork with a Smartblood test. With results available in as little as 3 days, you don’t have to wait long to take control of your diet and see the benefits.

The 1st-step indicator test is popular with those that have health problems that may be explained by a food intolerance but want to just check this before proceeding to a full test, which can be done on the same sample with no extra effort.

The full Smartblood test is a complete program that includes a 30 minute consultation with one of our BANT registered Nutritional Therapists and is a great way to discover all of your food sensitivities and take control over your own personal trigger foods.
