“I am basically "allergic to the universe." This recipe came from my personal desire to make pancakes which do not contain white flour or white sugar. The recipe is quick, simple and very healthy. The pancake itself is not sweet tasting because it has no sweetener, however, it can be easily sweetened by adding Stevia, Steviva, or some other sweetener to the batter. I have elected to sweeten the pancake by adding honey and fruit.”
