Gluten Free Pancake Recipe

One of my favorite breakfast foods is pancakes. Since going gluten free, I’ve had pancakes less often than usual. For awhile, we were buying Pamela’s Ultimate Baking and Pancake Mix but it got to be too expensive. I just couldn’t justify adding that into our food budget. I had to come up with some recipes that would be gluten free using items we normally had on hand. I have an awesome gluten free pancake recipe that has been tested and endorsed by those who are not even gluten free!

Gluten Free Pancake Recipe

(serves at least 2 people)

-2 cups ground oats (you can use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Oats for gluten free oats)
-2 cups plain yogurt or full fat milk
-2 eggs
-2 Tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil
-1/2 teaspoon of salt
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1 Tablespoon of sugar

1.  Mix the ground oats and yogurt or milk.

2. Add the eggs, butter, salt, baking soda, and sugar.  I make sure to let this mixture sit for about 20 minutes so the baking soda will make the pancakes fluffier.

3. Add butter to your cast iron skillet or griddle and cook the pancakes over medium heat.  You don’t want to have the heat too high- these pancakes take a little longer to cook than regular pancakes and are a little thicker.  I check the bottoms of mine to see when they are ready to flip.

4. Enjoy!

Notes: If you have Celiac Disease or are serving someone that has it, please use gluten free oats.  Oats are naturally gluten free but generally have gluten cross contamination during processing.  I grind my oats in the coffee grinder.

    I thought oats had gluten in them? (only not as much as wheat, rye, etc.)

    Oats don’t have gluten in them but the worry is about cross contamination. There are gluten free oats available, so those are what I would use. :)

  2. It seems like the healthier you to try to be, the more money you end up spending. Good job finding a pocket friendly way to stay gluten free. Stay young and thrifty :)

    My Grandma is diabetic and you are right that oatmeal is gluten free. She usually eat this every breakfast, but sometimes she gets tired eating the same one everyday.
    I could try this pancake for her, hope she’ll like it :) Thanks

  4. Thanks for this! I had to go gluten free a month ago and was shocked at how pricey it can be. I think baking this way with alternative oats and flours, rather than buying pricey pre-made gluten free products, is the way to go!

  5. I am trying some Chinese Chestnut recipes this year. We had a banner year on our trees and ended up with quite a few. I understand the flour you can make from them is also gluten free.

  6. I have been thinking about trying a gluten free diet. Everything seems to hurt my stomach, but I can’t figure it out. I am not allergic to gluten, but I have heard removing it from your diet can do wonders. Thanks for a recipe to help the process.
