How To Make Gluten-Free Pancakes From Scratch | Restaurants That Serve Gluten-Free Pancakes

Here’s What You’ll Need:


  • Gluten-free flour
  • Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla extract
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Cooking oil

In a small bowl, whisk together 2 eggs, ⅔ cup milk, 2 tablespoons cooking oil and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients (¾ cup gluten-free flour, 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder, ½ teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon). Then, combine wet and dry ingredients and whisk until well-blended.

Heat a non-stick frying pan and pour batter by the spoonful onto the hot pan. You can add chocolate chips for an extra special treat!

IMPORTANT: pancakes are ready to be flipped when the edges are no longer glossed over. It’s also worth noting that once you see bubbles, let the pancakes cook for another minute or two before flipping and only flip ONCE!
