Pancakes have always been one of my favorite foods. In fact, pancakes were the very first thing I ever learned to cook on my own. You can imagine how happy my parents were when that happened – no more being woken up to the sound of, “When are you going to get up? I NEEEED pancakes”. Yes, they were a necessity in my life 😉 We ate pancakes every. single. weekend morning. And to this day, I still eat them every Saturday… but now they are made with a gluten free recipe!
Although my love for pancakes is unwavering, the recipe I use to create the fluffy stack of goodness has gone through some changes. These days, I have had to come up with a slightly different recipe to accommodate my recent gluten sensitivity. And since today is National Pancake day I thought I would share my recipe for Fluffy Gluten-free Pancakes in case any of you would like to try it out 🙂 (PSA: in case you were unaware and are able to consume epic amounts of gluten without any negative symptoms – lucky you – then I feel it is my duty to make sure you are aware of the free stack of pancakes IHOP gives away on National Pancake day. I don’t blame you if you stop reading here and run to the nearest IHOP 😉 ). Ok, back to the recipe:
(Affiliate links are provided below for convenience. For more information see my disclosure, here.)
1.5 cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour (you could use any alternative flour here, yet this is the one I prefer)
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 tablespoon of baking powder
3/4 teaspoon of salt (I use Himalayan pink salt, found here)
1 large egg
3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 – 1.5 cups of milk (dairy and non-dairy both work, I use almond or coconut milk)
Mix all dry ingredients into a medium bowl
Whisk in the egg, oil and vanilla extract
Slowly pour in the milk until you have the desired consistency (usually about 1-1.5 cups)
Pour the batter by spoonfuls into a pre-heated and greased pan over medium-high heat (tip: I use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to get perfect sized and easy to flip pancakes)
Pancakes are ready to flip when the bubbles on the top start to stay open
Once flipped, use a spatula to check the the other side for doneness
Remove from pan, and add your favorite toppings!
