Word to Your Mutha! Gluten Free Crepes for Mother's Day

source

Happy Mother's Day to moms, grandmas, godmothers, and aunts everywhere! Especially to my gluten free mama, who I lovingly refer to on this blog as Babs.  My mom was diagnosed with celiac a year after I was and we're the only two in our family that follow a gluten free diet. Yep, we're a split household as far as food goes, so we know a thing or two about cross contamination.

This Mother's Day we're doing the Annual Beverly Breast Cancer Walk and then coming home and having brunch. This year it's all about the crêpes. I've been on a kick since I discovered gluten free (buckwheat) crêpes at Flip Crêpes a couple weeks ago.  Last weekend I practiced making some with the sample baking mixes I received in the CDF Celiac Conference goodie bag.

Since my niece and nephew spent the night and love my cake pop maker, we made Cinnamon Sugar donut holes with XO Baking Company's Pancake and Waffle Mix for breakfast the next morning.  I followed the instructions on the bag and made them using unsweetened almond milk and coconut oil.  After they were baked, I browned some butter to dip them in, and then rolled them around in my cinnamon and sugar mixture. Divine!


For the crêpes, I used the Pure Pantry Organic Buckwheat Flax Pancake and Baking Mix. Again I just followed the instructions on the bag and used almond milk and coconut oil while preparing them.


Unfortunately I didn't have any fresh berries to top them with, or even Nutella, but I did have Peanut Butter & Co. Chocolate Peanut Butter and some cherry preserves that made for a yummy cherry chocolate crêpe. Another variety was a chocolate peanut butter banana crêpe.

My very favorite is an egg sandwich no on else in my family will eat. I toast bread, spread both slices with peanut butter, fry some bacon and an egg over easy. Put the bacon and egg on top of the peanut butter toast and cover with other slice and enjoy with fresh squeezed orange juice! Thanks!! Lori Williams at icalledonjesus@aol.com

I love deviled eggs. I don't have a recipe, because my sister makes them, but they're my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner - even better than the turkey!

My favorite egg dish is steak and eggs. I live in Las Vegas, so it's only natural :)

My favorite egg dish.... hmmm... I love many egg dishes... from my mom's scrambled eggs (she uses a hand beater to make them extra fluffy) or my friend Andrea's quiche (she is gluten free and vegetarian)... or when my husband makes egg scramble and adds potatoes! :) Its hard to pick ONE favorite! :)

I have eggs for breakfast every morning. I like them steamed with cheese and bacon. The yolks need to be a bit runny while the whites are cooked.

My favorite way to enjoy eggs are hard boiled with smoked salt. I also love vegetable omelettes with lots of goodies, yum! Thank you for this giveaway!

I recently discovered my favorite egg dish, and it came out of a need for convenience. I lined a muffin tin with hashbrowns, then poured in scrambled eggs into each cup. I then added cheese and some bacon and cooked them up. Now my husband has something easy to grab when he's running late for work!

Let's see - Deviled eggs, egg salad, scrambled eggs. We are an egg eating family! If nothing else you can take the dry GF bread and make a rockin' French Toast!
