Popovers with flaxseeds – Gluten Free

You cannot stop eating these, so light and airy…

Popovers, as the name suggests it pops out of the muffin pan while baking. Since I used gluten free flour it didn’t pop as it’s supposed to be. I guess if you use all purpose flour, it would work just fine. Anyways, it tasted very light and in one sitting we emptied all the popovers. While making the batter, sugar is not added. So these make an excellent snack or breakfast for those who are cutting back on sugar. Others could pour maple syrup or honey or spread with any fruit preserves and enjoy them. Make sure to make a lot as it will finish in just a matter of minutes. If you are making this for a party, you could top it with ice cream, yum!!!

Gluten intolerant people can try this with gluten free flour and others can make with all purpose flour. You could also do a few variations with the recipe, like adding cocoa powder, raisins, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon. almonds etc to the batter. I added flax seeds.
