This week is packed with special occasions, as Saturday was Lunar New Year, Sunday was the Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day is Wednesday and Tuesday is Pancake (or Shrove)Tuesday. To help, we have compiled a list of the greatest gluten-free pancake recipes. This list is helpful all year round because everyone loves pancakes.
When I changed my diet, many years ago, I learned that not all pancake recipes can easily be made gluten-free. So, I turned to gluten-free pancake mixes and was bitterly disappointed with my first purchases. You can benefit from my trials and tribulations, as I have now perfected these recipes. Not to mention that this list of the greatest gluten-free pancake recipes has a boxed mix on it! Oh, and some French Toast recipes too, just so there is something for everyone.
Making pancakes is a wonderful idea for brunches, lazy Sundays, breakfast for dinner nights, and so much more. Know that you are going to want to try each of these gluten-free pancake recipes.
The Greatest Gluten-Free Pancake Recipes Honourable Mentions:
Kinnikinnick is our favourite mix. Their mix makes light and tasty pancakes that do not need the addition of extra vanilla too- but adding extra flavour is never a bad thing. Learn more about this mix by reading our gluten-free Kinnikinnick Pancake and Waffle Mix review. A mix is a great option if you are short on time, or want a quick/easy meal.
In case you don’t enjoy pancakes or want a faster option, French Toast is a great substitute. Making French Toast with gluten-free bread has a little learning curve, and we have tips to help.
The Greatest Gluten-Free Pancake Recipes:
This is a fancy recipe that uses a loaf of gluten-free bread, but it is worth it. The recipe combines the best aspects of bread pudding and pancakes. If you have ever ordered specialty pancakes at a breakfast restaurant and longed for that kind of flavour at home, you must try this recipe for the ultimate gluten-free bread pudding pancake recipe. Not to mention, it is a “wow” of a recipe to share with guests.
This is a perfectly easy, fluffy, light, and delicious traditional pancake recipe. Also, these pancakes are very versatile. They can be made with drained blueberries or any other fruit, or chocolate chips; or they can be made savory, with chopped, cooked bacon, ham, or your favourite grated cheese.
Also, you don’t need to buy buttermilk, as we give you the instructions for how to make your own, with milk and white vinegar. The gluten-free buttermilk pancake recipe is so easy that you can whip them up any time, as most ingredients are pantry staples.
These pancakes are light and fluffy and balance the perfect pumpkin spice flavour. By using this recipe, you can enjoy pumpkin spice flavours all year round. Remember, just because you are gluten-free, doesn’t mean you need to miss out on seasonal flavours and fun.
Pair these recipes with gluten-free breakfast sausage, bacon, and scrambled eggs to round out a full meal.
Remember that while pure maple syrup is our personal favourite, many gluten-free syrup options are available to top any of these gluten-free pancake recipes. Also, whipped cream is a great addition, for a dessert pancake/crepé. A pancake topping bar can really make gluten-free pancakes even more decadent.
