These gluten free pancakes are the best pancakes you’ll ever eat!
Seriously, these gluten free buttermilk pancakes are my absolute fave… and so easy to make on a lazy weekend morning! I need a simple ingredient list in my life so this is my uncomplicated go-to gluten free pancake recipe!
I developed this recipe a few months ago and since then they have been our go-to pancake recipe. Something about the buttermilk pancake that takes you back… Eric claims that these are the best pancakes that he’s ever had, and I can jump on that boat too… sorry mom.
How to make gluten free pancakes?
This recipe is unexplainably easy. As a matter of fact, these unbeatable gluten free pancakes are ready in under 30 minutes. Using minimal ingredients, simply mix the ingredients together in a bowl and cook pancakes on the stovetop.
It doesn’t get much easier than that! Take it from those who have tried this gluten free pancake recipe for themselves.
It was so easy and they were soft, fluffy, and tasty. – Annie
What are some substitutions for buttermilk?
If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you can always use kefir or blend milk and yogurt together to thin it out… or make your own buttermilk with regular milk and lemon juice. In fact, there are lots of recipes on the internet for making homemade buttermilk.
Dairy free milks are a great alternative to buttermilk – almond and coconut milk are both tasty options for this recipe! Feel free to use whole, 1% or skim milk too.
What is the best gluten free pancake mix?
I love making gluten free pancakes with a brown rice flour based all purpose flour! I keep that on hand since we eat mostly gluten free in this house and it’s reliable for making delicious pancakes in a flash!
We love using King Arthur Measure for Measure flour in this recipe.
This gluten free pancake recipe absorbs the right amount of syrup and pairs wonderfully with fruit and nut butter. Since I can’t get enough peaches right now, that’s what I chose to pile on top of my pancakes this morning. Talk about yum.
Our fam is small so I make this full recipe so that I can freeze the remainder and have for a quick breakfast during the week, and they taste just as amazing reheated! Testament to a good pancake recipe in my book, it freezes well.
Not to mention another perk about these gluten free pancakes is the simple ingredient list. So go grab a stack of these Gluten Free Buttermilk Pancakes and sink your fork into them this weekend.
