Gluten-Free Pancakes

Everyone loves gluten free pancakes and I love a good gluten-free pancake recipe.

Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of gluten free pancake mixes to purchase (some of my favorites are gfjules gluten free pancake & waffle mix, and Pamela's), but depending on your household pancake consumption, the mixes can get expensive.

I've been making this gluten free pancake recipe for years.

About a year ago I started making the dry portion in bulk and storing it in a glass container so that my sweet husband and girls could easily make pancakes when I was traveling.

Since then, we tend to keep this gluten-free pancake mix recipe close so that we always have pre-made mix on hand.

You can make these pancakes now or store the mix for later, it's up to you!

Ingredients in Gluten Free Pancakes

Gluten Free Flour - The base for these gluten free pancakes. You can use either of my gluten free flour blends, or you can use Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Baking Flour (the blue bag). We don't recommend using Bob's Red Mill all-purpose gluten free flour (the red bag).

Sugar- A touch of sugar adds a little sweetness and helps with the texture.

Baking Powder - To help create the air bubbles needed to help the gluten free pancakes fluff up and rise while cooking.

Baking Soda - To help create the air bubbles needed to help the gluten free pancakes fluff up and rise while cooking.

Salt- Salt is a flavor enhancer and it helps with the rise.

Cinnamon - This is optional, but we love adding it.

Egg - Eggs help bind everything together and they help with the texture.

Buttermilk - For flavor and texture and to work with the leavening agents to help the pancakes fluff up. You can use regular milk too, or a dairy free milk.

Oil- You can use your oil of choice, but we like to use neutral flavored oils like avocado oil.

Gluten-Free Pancake Mix

Most gluten-free pancake mixes are simply the dry ingredients combined. You always have to add the wet ingredients like milk, eggs, oil, etc.

By making it yourself you can keep as much or as little as you want on hand.

Also, it saves quite a bit of money to make your own gluten-free pancake recipe every week.

We like to make up a couple of batches of pancakes and keep them in the freezer for busy mornings. My girls pull them out and re-heat them for a delicious homemade breakfast.

How to make gluten free pancakes if you make the mix and store it:

  • Mix dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl then transfer to an airtight container if you are saving it for later. Don't forget to label your container with the date.
  • When you are ready to make pancakes:
  • Pre-heat a non-stick griddle, or pan. Pour the dry pancake mix into a large mixing bowl. If you doubled or tripled the dry ingredients before storing make sure add enough wet ingredients or measure out one batch worth of dry ingredients to mix with the wet ingredients above. One batch equals about 1 and ½ cups (200g) of dry pancake mix.
  • Add the wet ingredients and stir just until combined.
  • Ladle ¼ cup of pancake batter onto your hot griddle, or pan: measure out about ¼ cup of gluten-free pancake batter onto your hot oil-pan or electric griddle. Use the back of the measuring cup to help spread the batter some.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until bubbles form around the edges. When the edges are golden brown and the bubbles are popping up through the center of the pancake, use your spatula and take a peak to see if they are brown to your liking.
  • Then flip the gluten-free pancake and cook for another 5 minutes or so. Always check for doneness before you remove your pancake from the pan or griddle.
  • Serve hot.
  • This recipe can be doubled, or tripled.

Can I make these pancakes dairy-free?

Yes. This gf pancake recipe works with buttermilk, dairy-free buttermilk (see notes in the recipe), milk, or dairy-free milk.

I like to use buttermilk or a dairy-free buttermilk to make these gf pancakes because it makes them thicker but you can make gluten free dairy free pancakes using dairy free milk or my mock-buttermilk.

For thinner pancakes use milk, or a low fat dairy-free milk.

These gluten-free pancakes are a staple in our house. We tend to whip up a batch weekly, saving some in the freezer for later.

My girls like to enjoy them for breakfast and use them to make sandwiches. This might sound weird, but have you ever used gluten-free pancakes to make a sandwich? It's pretty tasty.

How long can I store gluten-free pancake mix?

This mix can be stored in an airtight container (or glass container) for up to three months at room temperature.

It may stay fresh longer, but I wouldn't know because we usually griddle our way through a triple batch of this gluten-free pancake recipe every other week.

For store bought gluten-free pancake mixes, always check the expiration date printed on the box.

Can I use an egg substitute in gluten-free pancakes?

I have used flax-egg and chia seed egg in this gluten-free pancake recipe before.

They are delicious, but they don't get the same rise as you would if you used eggs.

For this gluten-free pancake mix recipe, use buttermilk and flax egg for a good happy medium.

Gluten-Free Pancake Recipe

When I make my own mixes and my own flour blends I personally like to store them in glass jars or containers.

I feel that they stay fresh longer, and they are a good storage option. When I use Ball pint mason jars I purchase the lids that have spots for the date on the lid.

I write down when I made the mix or flour blend so I can keep track of how old it is. They are super useful!

How to make gluten free pancakes

Always follow the recipe first when making easy gluten-free pancakes. Don't work with substitutions until you know how the recipe works.

Once your batter is ready, heat your pan or electric griddle. I received an electric griddle last year and it's been my best friend since.

  1. Add all dry ingredient to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk until combine.
  3. Add the wet ingredients.
  4. Stir just until combined. Some lumps will remain.
  5. Ladle ¼ cup of pancake batter onto your hot griddle, or pan: measure out about ¼ cup of gluten-free pancake batter onto your hot oil-pan or electric griddle. Use the back of the measuring cup to help spread the batter some.
  6. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until bubbles form around the edges. When the edges are golden brown and the bubbles are popping up through the center of the pancake, use your spatula and take a peak to see if they are brown to your liking. Then flip the gluten-free pancake and cook for another 5 minutes or so. Always check for doneness before you remove your pancake from the pan or griddle.

This gluten free pancakes recipe is super simple to make. If you find that your pancake batter is too thick to spread, most likely you added too much flour or your buttermilk was too thick.

Simply add water a tablespoon at a time until you get the desired consistency.

Gluten-Free Pancakes with an electric griddle vs. a pan

You don't need an electric griddle to make this gluten-free pancake mix but I find that it's way easier. For one, you don't oil an electric griddle. It's non-stick. We love this Presto electric griddle, but there's tons of affordable options out there!

Also, the heat tends to stay even throughout the griddle whereas with a pan the heat might fluctuate. Plus, you can make 6-8 gluten-free pancakes at once on an electric griddle.

So many people have emailed me asking for a gluten-free pancake mix recipe that they can mix up and store.

I am super excited to finally get this post up for you, so that you can start whisking up your own gluten-free pancakes.

What is the secret to making pancakes fluffy? ›

You can use cold eggs and milk, but room temperature ingredients will make fluffier pancakes. It will also help the butter stay melted rather than clumping up into fat globules.

Should you let pancake batter rest in the fridge? ›

A – If you are going to let your batter rest, leave it for at least 30 minutes in the fridge. If you've got time, leave it for longer – even overnight in the fridge. Some say that there is no point in letting the batter rest and there's certainly no harm in using it straight away. Go ahead if you're in a rush.

Should you let pancake batter rest? ›

Give the batter a rest before cooking.

A rest of at least five minutes allows for the even hydration of the batter and also allows the gluten you created—which will develop even with careful, minimal mixing—to relax. The lumps will smooth out somewhat during this rest.

Can I just replace flour with gluten-free flour? ›

Because gluten is a structural protein, the products are often very tender and even crumbly if you just replace the flour that's called for in the recipe with gluten-free flour. However, in some baked products such as muffins or cookies, you can make that simple substitution.

Can I replace all-purpose flour with gluten-free flour? ›

Substitute all-purpose gluten-free flour in place of all-purpose regular flour at a ratio of 1:1. Try Bob's Red Mill all-purpose gluten-free flour. If you are baking items such as cakes and/or breads, add 1 teaspoon of xanthan gum.

Does adding more baking powder make pancakes fluffier? ›

Baking powder and baking soda are the leavening ingredients responsible for making pancakes light and airy, but add too much and they'll make your pancakes taste chalky, and add too little and you'll risk your pancakes turning out limp (via Bon Appetit).

What does an extra egg do to pancakes? ›

With little gluten, pancakes rely on eggs to provide the additional structure necessary to hold the bubbles and allow the pancake to rise. The fat in the yolk also provides richness and flavor. Too much egg, however, will make the pancake dense and custard-like; not enough will make it drier and more biscuit-like.

Does milk or water make pancakes fluffier? ›

For pancakes to get fluffy, you want a thick batter since a thin batter will result in thin pancakes. Since thin pancakes aren't fluffy, you want a formula that won't spread too much on the griddle. You may use a thicker liquid instead, like using milk instead of water or yogurt instead of milk.
