This past fall, Gwyneth Paltrow started a free e-newsletter called, GOOP. If you haven't already signed up for it, I recommend you go to the website now and register! Approximately once a month the newsletter features a variety of recipes for you to try and make. These are usually very health-conscious recipes and are often GLUTEN FREE or can easily be made gluten free.

Back in October, Gwyneth wrote about a delicious Buckwheat and Banana Pancake. Not only is this pancake GLUTEN FREE but it is vegan, as well. All you need to make these tasty pancakes are the following ingredients:

1 1/4 cup soy or rice milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon maple syrup [+ more for serving]
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup rice flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 bananas [thinly sliced]

First, mix the wet ingredients together. Second, mix the dry ingredients together. Add the wet to the dry and combine. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium - high heat. Pour on some pancake batter to get the desired size pancake. Cook until both sides are nicely browned. Serve with sliced bananas and maple syrup.

These directions are also provided at the GOOP website, in Make - Newsletter 5.

Bon appetit!
