The Fluffiest Gluten-Free Pancakes Made From Scratch
I had to look up the day on the calendar before saying, “Happy Thursday!” Life feels pretty strange lately, and all the little things we took for granted don’t seem so trivial anymore. I’m going to step out for a long walk around my neighborhood after hitting publish just to get some sunshine and check out what Spring is up to today. The word around the street is that the grass is green, and the trees have 70% leaf coverage. I do hope that this blog post brings you some delicious joy to your social distancing days. If it’s one thing we’ve loved during this time, it’s been eating these gluten-free made from scratch pancakes daily. It’s a recipe you’ll want to have on hand because it’s guaranteed to impress! There’s truly nothing better than whipping up homemade pancakes, especially ones that are crispy around the edges and fluffy in the middle! I bet you already have the ingredients in the house, too!
This recipe came about when Kyle and I wanted some pancakes for breakfast last Sunday while watching Little Women but didn’t have our go-to mix at home. Times are a little weird right now, so we couldn’t just hop in the car and pick it up. I decided just to whip up my recipe instead. I had made homemade pancakes plenty of times, but they were usually my protein, egg, and banana combo. I wanted these to taste fluffy, cakey, and well, like pancakes.
After playing around with the recipe for the past week, I finally have it nailed down. I know this sounds so cheesy, but I’m excited to make these pancakes on Sunday mornings in our new house 🥞 It’s the small things!
I’m the type of person that likes a recipe that doesn’t involve the electric mixer. I do love my mixer, but adding all the ingredients to a giant bowl and mixing is so much easier and less to clean up. For this recipe, all you need is Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Flour (this is my favorite gluten-free flour, and it never lets me down!) baking powder, sea salt, cinnamon, one egg, nut milk, vanilla, monk fruit, and coconut oil.
The best part about this recipe is that you can customize it any way you want. I plan on making lemon blueberry pancakes, banana walnut, apple cinnamon, chocolate chip, and more! I did the blueberry ones last Sunday, and they were fabulous!
I sprayed the pan with some cooking spray, cooked the pancakes on medium-high for 4-minutes on each side!
They fluff up so high in the pan 😊 I’m searching for a new pancake skillet, so if you have a favorite, you’ll have to let me know in the comments. The one trick is never to flatten your pancakes while they cook with your spatula. I see people do this a lot, and it’s a big no-no.
A perfect stack! I like to make the recipe for two, but if you’re serving more people in the house, go ahead and double the recipe. You can never have too many pancakes.
Have you seen anything more beautiful? It’s the perfect stack!
