Pancakes and waffles are some of the first foods we recommend to new gluten-free cooks. The batter is easy to make, and they freeze and reheat well. They’re great for peanut butter sandwiches, too. Besides this, it's easy to vary the recipe. This particular variation is one that my neighbor shared with me. The ones she brought me were full of wheat, but I was easily able to modify my own pancake recipe to re-create the delicious flavor. - Betsy
