For those of you who can't have wheat flour, here is a recipe for old-fashion pancakes using rice flour.

1 cup rice flour (all-purpose may be substituted)
3/4 cup rice bran
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon*
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
3 egg whites, beaten
cooking oil
butter for serving
fresh fruit and or syrup for serving

Into a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, bran, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda.

In a small mixing bowl combine the buttermilk and egg whites.  Add this mixture to the flour mixture, stirring just until smooth.

Heat a griddle or large skillet and pour a small amount of oil, just to coat.  When oiled surface is hot, pour batter, 1/4 of a cup at a time, onto the griddle.  Cook over medium heat until the batter begins to bubble and the underside is lightly browned.  Turn pancakes to brown the second side.
Butter pancakes and serve with fruit and or syrup.

*Omit cinnamon for regular pancakes.
