(NaturalNews) I'm super excited today to announce the availability of my new organic, gluten-free, non-GMO pancake mixes in three delicious flavors: Blueberry-Vanilla, Banana-Pecan and Apple-Cinnamon. All three of these mixes are laboratory verified A+ or better in our heavy metals lab, and they're all based on coconut flour, not the rice flour typically used in gluten-free pancake mixes.

In this article, I reveal the development behind these new gluten-free pancake mixes while also providing important baking directions.

Every fruit and ingredient used in these mixes is 100% authentic and validated. Unlike most processed food companies, we don't use fake blueberries. We don't use GMOs, and we absolutely will not use refined sugars of any kind.

These mixes are based on coconut flour, coconut sugar and certified organic freeze-dried fruits. There is no higher quality pancake mix available in the world, period!

How I developed these delicious pancake mixes

I developed these pancake mixes because I love pancakes but don't want to eat gluten. I also don't want the GMOs, additives and fake fruits typically found in the popular mixes you might find at a grocery store.

So I set out to create a pancake mix based on coconut flour -- a very difficult ingredient to work with in baked goods. Because it's gluten free, coconut flour doesn't have the sticky, self-binding texture of wheat flour. So I used organic tapioca starch and a small amount of guar gum to accomplish this instead.

As a sweetener, I used organic coconut sugar, probably the best low-glycemic, mineral-rich sweetener available today. It works very nicely in baked goods, too.

For flavoring, I turned to organic vanilla bean -- the real stuff, not the artificial chemicals. In fact, here's the full ingredients list for our Blueberry-Vanilla Pancake Mix:

Organic coconut flour, organic coconut sugar, organic tapioca starch, organic blueberries, sodium bicarbonate, organic vanilla, guar gum and salt

Important instructions for using coconut flour pancake mixes

Here's the drawback of these mixes: they're somewhat challenging to cook with in a pan because they don't have the gluten "glue" found in wheat-based mixes. Also, coconut flour is a good insulator, so if you make the mix too thick, you will have pancakes that are cooked on the outside but raw in the middle.

For best results, here's what I recommend:

1) To each 1 cup of pancake mix, add 3/4 cups of water (or raw milk), and 1 egg. Mix well.

2) For best results, use a two-sided waffle maker or pancake maker that applies heat to both the top and bottom of each pancake. You can also use a regular pan, but obviously I don't recommend using non-stick cookware.

3) Use low heat for longer duration rather than high heat for shorter duration. Compared to wheat flour, coconut flour takes longer to cook all the way through.

4) If you cook these in a pan, go with smaller sized pancakes because they'll be much easier to flip. (If you make them too large, you won't be able to flip them with a spatula.)

5) For mixing the batter, aim for a thinner mixture rather than thicker. The heat insulative properties of coconut flour actually block heat transfer, preventing heat from penetrating the pancake, so you don't want them to be too thick.

6) If you're not used to eating coconut flour pancakes, take it easy! Don't snarf down the entire plate at once. As with any new food you're introducing into your diet, ease into it gradually.

ENJOY! These are the finest ingredients available on the planet, period! No one else that I know of tests their raw materials as diligently as we do, and it has taken us months to source these materials because of our extremely stringent demands. (In fact, a couple of months ago I thought we would have to cancel the plans entirely, but we finally found good sources.)

The overall taste of these pancakes is very delicious -- no additional syrup is required because they already contain organic palm sugar.

I do sometimes put butter on these, however. (Can't resist!)

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
