  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey (or fruit juice concentrate or sugar)

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Beat egg until frothy.

  3. Add buttermilk, oil, and honey and beat until well blended.

  4. In another bowl, mix brown rice flour and the remaining dry ingredients. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
