Impulsive Culinarian’s Delicious Gluten Free Pancake Recipe

Ingredients
  • Wet Ingredients
    • 1 1/2 cups Dairy Free Milk
    • 3 tbsp Coconut Oil (melted)
    • 1 Ripe Banana (mashed)
  • Dry Ingredients
    • 1/3 cup Corn Flour
    • 1/3 cup White Rice Flour
    • 1/3 cup Sweet Rice Flour
    • 1/3 cup Tapioca Flour
    • 1/3 cup Potato Starch
    • 2 tbsp Sugar
    • 1 1/2 tbsp Baking Powder
    • 1/2 tsp Guar Gum
    • 1/2 tsp Fine Sea Salt
  • Optional Ingredients
    • 1/3 cup Dairy Free Chocolate Chips

 

Instructions
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients (no chocolate chips yet)
  • Place a large non-stick griddle over medium-low heat
  • Add your milk to the dry mixture and whisk together well so that there are no lumps
  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt coconut oil in the microwave for around 30 to 40 seconds
  • Carefully add the melted oil to your pancake batter mixture and slowly whisk until thoroughly combined
  • In a separate shallow bowl, peel and mash the ripe banana until it is smooth
  • Add the mashed banana to your pancake batter and whisk until thoroughly combined
  • If using chocolate chips, add them to the pancake batter and stir with a large sturdy spoon until well distributed throughout
  • Place a dab of margarine or butter in the warm skillet and spoon out the batter into equal size rounds leaving sufficient space to flip
  • When bubbles start to form on the wet side of your pancakes (around 2 to 3 minutes), flip to brown on the uncooked side
  • Once the pancakes are browned on the other side (around 2 minutes), remove from the skillet and set aside on a warm serving dish
  • Garnish and serve right away

Everyone Loves Pancakes, Especially When They’re Allergen Friendly!

Nobody should ever be denied the great pleasure of warm fluffy homemade pancakes on a lazy Sunday morning, and with that motivation in mind it brings me great pleasure to share this recipe with you. It’s one of the very first things that I spent time perfecting in my gluten free culinary adventures and it has been a delicious ritual of our weekend routine ever since.

This pancake batter is like any other, it seems a bit liquidy at first, but as the thickeners kick in it turns out just right

There are many gluten free pancake recipes online to choose from, and many of them are quite good. Some claim to be super simple with only a couple ingredients, others declare boldly to be the best allergen free pancakes ever. The recipe above makes no such limiting claims at all, in fact I would go so far as to paint an even broader culinary stroke.

Every stove-top is slightly different, but when you find that sweet-spot in the medium low range, you're good to go

The recipe above will yield delicious, fluffy pancakes … period. The bonus of course is that they also just happen to be gluten free, dairy free, and egg free. As with all my recipes, I am never satisfied saying “it’s not bad for gluten free”, quite the contrary, I expect my recipes to be delicious first, THEN allergen friendly as a bonus.

The first batch is always a test-run to see if you've got the temperature just right ... but there is no such thing as a bad pancake with this recipe

Anyway, let’s not let things get out of proportion here, it’s only pancakes after all. Here’s hoping that you and your family will enjoy these as much as we do almost every weekend.

The final product, fluffy and delicious, even on their own ... but much better with real Canadian maple syrup of course!
