GFCF? What’s that? GFCF stands for Gluten Free Casein Free which stems from the gluten free casein free diet. A gluten free casein free diet simply means that there isn’t any wheat flour or dairy products in the diet. The reason I decided to include this type of recipe is that there are many people who are allergic to gluten and or dairy and sometimes this makes eating a bit more challenging especially in the West Indies and more so Trinidad and Tobago.

An Original GFCF Sugar Free Pancakes

And also having a relative who is also allergic to gluten and casein, we decided to come up with some GFCF recipes of our own with that distinctly Trini twist. Yes! This GFCF recipe is a Simply Trini Cooking original. One that my wife worked on for some time to get the ingredients just right.

As a start into this realm of cooking we chose to do |3af7beef7f4b462af490633a2fb66912|because pancakes are relatively easy to make. So instead of doing a recipe that would be complicated I think this would give you the confidence to see that this type of cooking is not that hard. And added to that, this pancake recipe is also sugar free. We just wanted to make these pancakes as natural as possible.

So, if you know of anyone with these allergies you can surprise them with some GFCF sugar free pancakes. Tell me what you think about it. And look out for some more GFCF Trini recipes in the future. Take it from me, these homemade pancakes are really delicious and makes a satisfying breakfast. Here’s GFCF sugar free pancakes.

    Hi Felix, I need your advice on gluten intolerance condition in Trinidad. I am pretty sure that my mother in law suffers from this condition, however I do not know how to convince her that she has to completely stop eating gluten products and advice how to survive with no rotis, bus-up shot and macaroni pie! :) I will be hard… My question is, was your relative self diagnosed as Gluten intolerant, or you went by the doctor? If it was a doctor, could you tell me, who it was? My family in Trinidad had no idea what is gluten and what is a celiac disease, on my MIL was always treated for stomach problems, reflux, bloating, muscle pain, joint pain and all kinds of different conditions, without doctors realising they were symptoms of gluten intolerance.
    I just wonder what awareness exists in Trinidad and how doctors relate to it. Hope you can help. Many thanks. Kate
