Gluten Free Pancakes

After talking to a few other people with gluten intolerance issues, breakfast seems to be one of the harder meals deal with. Many of the meals we eat for breakfast are high in wheat and gluten content. Nick used to love eating pancakes and such, but always felt sluggish and slow after eating that kind of food. He loves eggs and potatoes, but I am not a huge fan of eggs and potatoes get boring day after day. So I started playing around with my pancake recipes and the gluten free flours. Here is one of Nick's favorite pancake recipes - it's quick and easy. There are two ways of cooking these - one will yield light, fluffy and airy pancakes but will take a little more time, the other is more traditional and very quick.

Fluffy Pancakes

Beat the whites until stiff and peaks form. Set aside
