Gluten is the name for the proteins found in grains such as wheat, barley or rye: it is gluten what gives the elastic, chewy texture of bread or pasta dough. However, more and more people are developing an intolerance to gluten. People with celiac disease, or CD, are strongly advised to avoid gluten in their diets.

However, many people - including those who can digest gluten - are becoming conscious about the harmful side of gluten and hence are steering towards a gluten-free diet. Let’s find out how to make gluten-free breakfast in this oneHOWTO article.

Gluten-free pancake

We all have bad mornings: one excellent way to turn them around are classic old-fashioned pancakes with loads of maple syrup or honey. If you are going gluten-free, avoiding wheat flour becomes necessary, but this doesn’t means that you have to leave behind the oh- so-comforting pancakes.

Substitute the wheat flour with rice flour or buckwheat flour. Make sure that the buttermilk is also gluten-free: it usually is, but some dairies add modified food starch.
