Gluten-Free Turmeric Pancakes

Today's recipe is inspired by my friend Scott and his fiance Jasmine. We've decided to put a new twist on the classic gluten-free pancake. Turmeric is a wonderful spice that has many health benefits, it can even fight the flu[1]. This recipe is spicy with the right amount of sweet. These aren't your ordinary pancakes ~.^
