Around ten years ago when I developed a severe gluten allergy, the first thing that came to my mind was that I was never going to be able to truly enjoy a real pancake ever again. 

Saturday mornings just aren't quite complete with a warm, fluffy pancake with maple syrup running over the edges. #AmIRight??

As I've learned so much about the world of gluten-free baking, I've quickly discovered how delicious baked goods can be without gluten in them. 

In fact, my tastebuds and body now crave it as I don't get the digestion issues, energy crashes or brain fog I once had from gluten treats.

These pancakes are super simple to throw together and rich in nutrients + flavor. You can get create with the toppings and add a fruit mixture of sorts, yogurt, etc. 

After you make them post a picture on instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #IAmSummitFit.
