Now, let’s dive into the heart of this recipe article- The Recipe How-To. Get your apron on and your spatula at hand, it’s time to make some pancakes!


  • 1 ½ cups of gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups of dairy-free milk
    • (I use almond or rice milk for this recipe)
  • 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
    • (can be substituted with melted coconut oil)
  • 1 mashed medium-sized banana
    • (ripe bananas work best!)


  1. In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients: gluten-free flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix them well using a whisk.

  2. In another bowl, combine all the wet ingredients: dairy-free milk, apple cider vinegar, vegetable oil and mashed banana. Whisk them thoroughly until they are evenly combined.

  3. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredient bowl and whisk gently again until they form a smooth batter. Make sure there’s no lump or bumps in your pancake batter as this can cause uneven cooking.

  4. Allow the pancake batter to rest for at least five minutes to activate the baking powder and allow it to rise.

  5. Preheat a non-stick griddle or frying pan over medium-low heat for two minutes until hot.

  6. Using a ladle, pour a small amount (roughly about ¼ cup) of pancake batter onto the griddle or frying pan per pancake.

  7. Cook the pancakes for around three to four minutes until small bubbles appear on top of each pancake. Then, flip and cook for another one-two minutes, or until golden brown.

  8. Serve the gluten-free pancakes hot off the griddle with your favourite toppings such as fresh berries, maple syrup or a dollop of dairy-free yogurt.

Tips For Perfect Results:

  1. Use a non-stick griddle or frying pan to avoid pancakes sticking to the pan even when greased.

  2. Do not over-mix your batter as this can lead to tough and dense pancakes.

  3. Have all your ingredients at room temperature before you start mixing your recipedients together.

  4. Add sliced bananas, blueberries or any fruit of your choice to the batter for an extra kick of flavors.

  5. If you want fluffier pancakes, add a tablespoon of ground chia seeds or ground flax seeds for every egg required in any regular pancake recipe.

Substitutions and Variations

Now, let’s talk about substitutions and variations. This part is essential for you, especially if you have certain dietary restrictions or just simply want to experiment with different ingredients.

First off, we used all-purpose flour in this recipe to achieve a fluffy texture. However, if you’re gluten-free or prefer to avoid wheat flour, you can easily substitute it with oat flour, sorghum flour, rice flour, or any other gluten-free flour blend that suits your taste.

If you’re looking for a dairy-free alternative, simply swap the milk and yogurt with dairy-free milk and sour cream made from coconut or almonds, respectively. You can also replace the eggs with chia seeds or ground flax seeds mixed with water (1 tablespoon of seeds equals 1 egg), or use a store-bought egg replacer.

For a vegan option, you can use the substitutes mentioned above along with replacing honey with maple syrup or use a sugar substitute like stevia.

If you want to add some extra flavor to your pancakes, consider adding some blueberries, bananas or cinnamon into the batter. You can also top them off with fresh berries and drizzle maple syrup for added sweetness.

Lastly, if you’re short on time but still want delicious pancakes in the morning, use pancake mix instead of making the batter from scratch. Just be sure to read the label and choose a mix that aligns with your dietary needs.

In conclusion, feel free to experiment and try out different substitutions and variations until you find your perfect recipe that works for you!

Once you have made these delicious gluten-free, egg-free pancakes, you might want to store the leftovers for later. The good news is that they store well and can be reheated in no time, making them a great option for busy mornings.

To store the pancakes, let them cool down completely and then stack them up on a plate with a sheet of parchment paper between each pancake. Then wrap the plate tightly with foil or plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

When you’re ready to reheat, simply remove the foil or plastic wrap and microwave the pancakes on high for 30-45 seconds, depending on your microwave’s wattage. If you prefer not to use a microwave, you can also reheat them in a toaster oven or regular oven at 350°F (175°C) for 5-10 minutes or until heated through.

If you want to make these pancakes ahead of time, you can also freeze them for up to 1 month. Simply place them in a single layer on a baking sheet or plate and freeze until solid. Then transfer them to an airtight container or freezer bag and label it with the date.

To reheat frozen pancakes, simply microwave them on high for 1-2 minutes or until heated through. You can also reheat them in a toaster oven or regular oven at 350°F (175°C) for 10-15 minutes.

Now that we’ve gone through the recipe how-to, it’s time to dive into some essential tips and tricks for making the best gluten-free, egg-free pancakes. Following these tips will help you achieve perfectly fluffy and mouth-watering pancakes every time.

– Use a non-stick pan or griddle: Pancakes tend to stick, especially gluten-free ones. So to ensure that your pancakes have crispy edges and are evenly cooked throughout, use a non-stick pan or griddle.

– Don’t overmix the batter: Overmixing the batter can lead to tough and chewy pancakes. Mix dry and wet ingredients until just combined, then stop. Lumps in the batter are okay.

– Let the batter rest for 5-10 minutes: Resting allows the ingredients to meld together and results in more tender pancakes.

– Ensure that your baking powder and soda are fresh: Using expired leavening agents will result in flat pancakes. To test if your baking powder is still good, drop a teaspoon of it into a bowl of warm water. If it bubbles vigorously, it’s still fresh.

– Cook the pancakes on medium heat: Medium heat ensures that your pancakes cook through without burning or sticking to the pan.

– Flip only when bubbles form on top: Wait for bubbles to form before flipping your pancake. This will ensure that your pancake is cooked on one side before flipping.

– Keep warm in the oven: If you’re serving more than one person at a time, keep finished pancakes warm in an oven set at 200°F until ready to serve.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to make amazing gluten-free and egg-free pancakes every time!

I understand that when it comes to specific dietary needs, people often have varying doubts and concerns.

What can I use instead of eggs in pancakes?

For this recipe article, we will be using a variety of plant-based ingredients to create delicious and nutritious dishes. These ingredients include mashed bananas, chia seeds, ground flax seeds, whipped tofu, applesauce, and store-bought egg replacers like Ener-G. With these ingredients, we can make a range of organic, gluten-free, and dairy-free recipes that everyone can enjoy. Let’s get started!

Can you make pancakes without eggs?

Let’s start making our healthy and delicious recipe by whisking together the gluten-free flour, baking powder, a pinch of sugar, and a pinch of salt in a medium-sized bowl. Then, in a separate bowl, let’s combine the non-dairy milk, oil and water. Carefully pour this mixture into our dry ingredients and stir just until everything is evenly moistened.

What can I use instead of eggs in Bisquick pancakes?

Looking for some alternatives to eggs in popular box mixes like Bisquick? I’ve got you covered! Here are a few ideas: swap in 1/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce for each egg, or use 1/4 cup of mashed banana per egg (which ends up being about half a banana). Another option is to mix in 1/4 cup of mashed sweet potato per egg, and add in 2 tablespoons of water or your preferred type of milk. These substitutes will give your recipes the lift and moisture you need without relying on eggs.

Can I use oil instead of eggs in pancake mix?

Incorporating a mixture of water, baking powder, and vegetable oil can act as an egg substitute for several eggs in a recipe without compromising the taste and quality of the final product. This blend acts as a fantastic alternative rather than using other substitutes, which can sometimes alter the consistency and taste of the baked goods.

Gluten Free, Egg Free, Delicious Pancakes Recipe

Who says you can't have pancakes when you are allergic to almost every major allergen? I found this recipe when I was first coping with my son's food allergy diagnosis. At the time he was allergic to all major grains, eggs, soy, nuts, etc. - but not milk! If you also have a milk allergy, or are vegan, I'm sure you can adapt this for your needs as well. This is a delicious recipe whether you have allergies or not. We like to eat it with blueberries baked in the pancakes.
