Gluten-Free Pancakes, an inexpensive, thoughtful, and cruelty-free Valentine’s Day treat!
Ah, February 14th. An entire day dedicated to romance, where couples get to celebrate their love for one another. When is there a better opportunity to whip up a batch of Gluten-Free Pancakes and start the celebrations off bright and early?
Sometimes I wonder, why all the hype? Valentine’s Day can be stressful, miserable, and disappointing. What if she doesn’t like the gift you surprise her with or feels awkward that she didn’t get you one? Those without romantic partners can feel lonesome and annoyed at all the couples crowding the restaurants and inflatable heart balloons filling the grocery stores. Plus it can also be a relatively expensive holiday, as chocolate shops, flower suppliers, and restaurants raise their prices to meet the demand.
Here at He Cooks for Me, we think Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be such a headache. It can be fun, inexpensive, and even healthy, thanks to our Gluten-Free Pancakes! Surprise your special someone with these tasty, fluffy little breakfast delights, or turn it into a date by preparing them together! And it doesn’t have to be just for your spouse/girlfriend/boyfriend; feel free to treat your best friend, family, next door neighbor, or even your dog. Because Valentine’s Day is about celebrating with those you love and care about, and everyone has got that in their life.
Feel good about the Valentine’s Day hype for once, because these little treats are worth it: easy to prepare with only four ingredients, plus your toppings of choice, these pancakes are gluten-free and vegan. We also suggested using coconut sugar, which is less refined than white sugar, has a slightly lower glycemic index, and also contains some trace nutrients from the coconut palms from which it is harvested.
These gluten-free pancakes are inexpensive (no thank you long-stem roses, I’ll take a stack of pancakes), cute, fun, thoughtful, and healthier than a heart-shaped box of chocolates! Pile on the berries, cinnamon, and vegan cashew caramel sauce and dig in!
