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 toย 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!
healthy homemade gluten free fluffy pancakes dairy free delicious breakfast recipeThis 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 pancakesย 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 houseย ๐Ÿฅž It’s the small things!
healthy homemade gluten free fluffy pancakes dairy free delicious breakfast recipeI’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!

They fluff up so high in the pan ๐Ÿ˜Š 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!

      Hi, Hannah!

      Ohhhh your mom will love this then! โ™ฅ๏ธ

      OMG YES i lived off banana egg pancakes for the past 7 years ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I have always loved banana, blueberry, and pumpkin spice pancakes. We make pancakes almost every weekend in our house and those are some of the go to flavours depending on the season. We often put homemade whipped cream and fruit on them too.

    You should make birthday cake pancakes with sprinkles, matcha, or oatmeal chocolate chip cookie flavours.

    I would love for you to do another blog post about blogging! I have thought about it for years but sometimes feel like Iโ€™m not sure who would read my blog haha. Iโ€™d love more info about how to make money with a blog, how to gain followers, what website hosts you have used in the past, planning blog posts, etc. I love writing and connecting with people online so itโ€™s always been a consideration of mine!

      Hi, Courtney!

      Yum! I’ll have to try adding homemade whipped cream on mine next time. What a great idea!!

      ohhhh birthday cake ones would be fun!!

      I definitely want to do that for sure! I have been putting together mini-blogs about it for the past five months, but it’s taking longer than I thought! Hope to have it done by summer!

    Hi TL! These look delish. I made Ina Gartenโ€™s banana pancakes this morning, and I have to say it felt so right to have some comfortinng pancakes first thing!

    For a griddle pan I use The Griddler! Iโ€™ve had mine for almost 10 years and its still great. You can use it as a flat griddle pan, or flip the cooking flat tops around and it becomes a panini/grill press! I use it for everything.

    Looking forward to your next recap. The little things really help me feel normal. I hope you and your family are all well.

      Hope all is well! The recap will be up today!! xo

    Hi Taralynn, looks like a great recipe, can’t wait to try it.
    One question, in the ingredients, you say Baking Soda, but in the instructions you say Baking Powder. Just need to know which it is before I make them.
