Brown Rice/Millet Pancakes

Well, thanks to Honey, I am back on here after a hiatus of nearly two years.  These pancakes are adapted from a recipe from Julie Wandling's "Hallelujah Kids" and they'll have you shouting "Hallelujah" when you try them.  They are gluten-free, egg-free, and dairy-free, and are a staple in our house.  They also freeze well, if you flash freeze them first on a cookie sheet before placing them in a freezer bag.  Then they can go directly to the toaster on a busy morning.

2 c. brown rice (not the quick kind)
1 c. millet
2 c. water

Place above ingredients in a bowl, and cover with a towel, allowing to soak overnight.
The next morning...
Place the contents of the bowl in a blender with the following ingredients:

1 large apple (chopped)
2 TBSP olive oil
2 TBSP Honey
1/2 tsp salt

Process until smooth, then add 1 TBSP of Aluminum-free Baking powder.
Fry as you would any pancake, in coconut oil, because of course we would never use any other oil to fry with, right?  Another good selection is grapeseed oil.  And since none of us are perfect, I guess butter can occasionally make its way into the pan.  "Eat without guilt!"  That's my motto.
