Last week I shared my Newbie Gluten Free Bread. Over on Pinterest that recipe is getting a TON of love. Today I want to share my absolute favourite gluten free pancakes. I had a lot of pancake fails when I went gluten-free. Some didn’t cook all the way through. Some were as hard and heavy as stone. Not these. These are everything you would expect from a pancake. Every bit as light and fluffy as their gluten filled counterparts. Everyone in my family loves them.

Weekends are for these gluten free pancakes

On a Saturday morning we usually have a  pancake breakfast. We top these with homemade almond butter, fresh fruit and Omega Seed Sprinkles. You would never guess they are gluten-free.

Because these pancakes are free from perishable ingredients such as eggs and dairy they keep for up to 4 days in the fridge. You can also wrap them individually in wax paper and freeze them for up to two months! So be sure to double or triple your batch.

These pancakes are truly delicious but don’t just take my word for it. I asked my daughter what I should say about these pancakes. Her response. They taste like normal pancakes, try them you will like them. There you have it. Just do what she said.

 

Please share this post to give your family and friends a chance to try out the recipe too.

Newbie Gluten Free Pancakes
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • ½ cup / 83g white rice flour
  • ½ cup / 65g corn flour
  • ½ cup / 63g oat flour (buckwheat or chestnut flour also works)
  • 1 ½ cups / 363ml almond milk or milk of your choice
  • 2 teaspoons GF baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey or maple syrup
  • ½ banana mashed
  • 1 flax egg (mix 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal plus 3 tablespoons water & let sit for 15mins)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Instructions
  1. If using chia or flax eggs prepare this first by soaking 1 tablespoon of ground chia or flax seeds with 3 tablespoons of hot water and allow to rest while you prepare the other ingredients
  2. Sift the dry ingredients into one bowl and mix the wet in another. I usually give my wet ingredients a blitz in my blender.
  3. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Don’t forget to add the chia egg if using
  4. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.
  5. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately ¼ cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
The mixture can thicken as you cook, just add more milk to get the desired consistency.
Notes
It is important to sift your gluten free flours to avoid clumps.

    These look amazing! I’d love to try making them, but I’m celiac & also unfortunately can’t do oats – would you be able to recommend something to replace the oat flour? I was thinking either maybe millet, or chickpea, or a combo…?

      Hello Katharine it’s funny you should ask as just this weekend I ran out of oat flour and had to sub with chestnut flour. They turned out great! I have also used buckwheat flour in the past with great success. Chickpea is a high protein flour so it should work as well, I just don’t fancy it’s taste so don’t use it much. Let me know how it turns out!

    I like the addition of the corn and oat flour to give the pancakes a nice taste. Plus, love the banana addition as well.

      Thanks Anna! The banana gives it a nice touch of sweetness and helps with the binding as well in absence of an egg… 🙂

    I will try making these. I have never used rice flour before, but that’s a great idea for keeping them gluten free.
