These gluten-free dairy-free pancakes are light and fluffy. They are perfect for a special occasion or for a lazy weekend morning. I requested these for our Mother’s Day breakfast this year. We like to top them with chocolate chips, and maple syrup. Whatever topping you choose these are sure to satisfy. Go ahead and give these a try. You’ll never know they are gluten-free.

Fold fresh blueberries into the batter for gluten-free blueberry pancakes.

If you can tolerate them, add nuts (pecans, walnuts) to the batter or use as a topping.
Basic gluten-free pancakes are made with gluten-free flour mix, xanthan gum (if your flour mix does not contain this ingredient), liquid, egg, and butter. The ingredient ratio is 2 parts gluten-free flour, 2 parts liquid, 1 part egg, and 1/2 part butter. For these gluten-free dairy-free pancakes, I substitute dairy-free milk for the liquid and use dairy-free butter.
Yes. Cool the pancakes completely, then wrap them in foil or plastic wrap. I wrap 2-3 together so it’s easy to pull out a few servings at a time. Place the wrapped pancakes in a sealed storage bag and store them for up to 3 months in the freezer. To reheat, defrost in the refrigerator for a few hours. Place pancakes in the toaster or microwave for about 1 minute until hot.
There are many store-bought gluten-free pancake mixes available. Here are some of the most recommended brands.
Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pancake Mix, Bisquick Gluten-Free Pancake Mix, King Arthur Flour Gluten-Free Pancake Mix, Pamela’s Non-Dairy Gluten-Free Pancake and Waffle Mix, and Pamela’s Gluten-Free Baking and Pancake Mix (paid Amazon links). Check the ingredients carefully for other allergens such as milk, soy, and nuts. Different brands use different flour blends.
IHOP’s menu states it has gluten-friendly pancakes, which is NOT the same as gluten-free. Another term used in restaurants is gluten-sensitive. This is also NOT the same as gluten-free. Gluten-friendly and gluten-sensitive mean that the food is not prepared in a dedicated gluten-free area or facility so cross-contamination can occur. When you eat out always check with the staff and chef when ordering, and make them aware of your allergies.
