One reason you’ll love this recipe is that it is so versatile. If you don’t have almond milk or oat milk, you can use any non-dairy milk substitute as well as water in a 50:50 ratio.

Ingredient list

Before we dive into the recipe instructions, let’s go over the ingredients that you will need. You will need gluten-free flour blend, which consists of brown rice flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, and xanthan gum. Other ingredients include baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, almond milk or oat milk (or any other non-dairy milk), vegetable oil, and vanilla extract.


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of gluten-free flour blend with 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of sugar.

  2. Next, add in 1 cup of almond milk or oat milk (or any other non-dairy milk), 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil or melted coconut oil, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

  3. Mix everything together until well combined. If the batter seems too thick, add a little more non-dairy milk until it reaches your desired consistency.

  4. Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat. To test if it’s hot enough, sprinkle a few drops of water onto the surface – if they sizzle away immediately then it is ready.

  5. Using a ladle or measuring cup, pour approximately a quarter cup of pancake batter onto your pan for each pancake.

  6. Cook until lightly browned on each side (approximately two minutes per side).

  7. Serve immediately with your favorite toppings such as fresh fruit or maple syrup.

Recipe Notes

One of the best things about this pancake mix recipe is just how versatile it is. There are a multitude of possible substitutions and variations that you can make to the recipe, each one allowing you to create your own unique spin on the classic pancake.

First, let’s talk about gluten-free flours. While we used an all-purpose gluten-free flour blend in this recipe, you could easily substitute with your favorite gluten-free flour mix. Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour or King Arthur Gluten-Free Measure for Measure Flour are both great options that will produce similar results.

If you’re looking for a different flavor profile, you could also try substituting some of the flour with almond flour or sorghum flour. These flours add a nutty depth of flavor to your pancakes and make them even more filling.

For dairy-free options, we used almond milk in the recipe. However, you could also use oat milk or any other non-dairy milk alternative that suits your taste preferences.

If you want something on the sweeter side, you can add more sugar to the recipe, or even substitute with maple syrup or honey instead. Additionally, adding some vanilla extract to your batter can help to make the pancakes even more flavorful.

Lastly, if you’re looking to go completely vegan with your pancakes, simply omit the egg from the recipe and replace it with a vegan egg substitute like applesauce or mashed bananas.

The possibilities are endless with this recipe– feel free to experiment and create delicious new variations on classic pancakes.

Tips for Perfect Results

Keep this mix on hand for quick and healthy breakfasts any day of the week.

Preparing gluten-free and dairy-free pancakes can be a bit tricky, but with the right tips, you can achieve the best results possible. Here are some tips to help you make perfect pancakes every time.

Firstly, use a non-stick skillet or griddle to prevent the pancakes from sticking. Coat the skillet with cooking spray or oil to make it non-stick.

Secondly, allow the pancake batter to rest for about 5-10 minutes before cooking. This allows the flour blend to absorb some of the liquid and creates fluffier pancakes.

Thirdly, if you want your gluten-free and dairy-free pancake mix to be extra fluffy, then separate the egg white from the yolk. Mix the egg yolk into the batter and beat the egg white until it forms stiff peaks. Then gently fold in the egg white into the batter before cooking.

Fourthly, use a cookie scoop or measuring cup for even portions of batter for each pancake. This will ensure all your pancakes are uniform in size and cook evenly.

Fifthly, don’t overcrowd your skillet as it can cause uneven cooking and merging of the pancakes. Leave enough space between each of them, this will also allow easier flipping.

Sixthly, cook your pancakes on medium heat. Higher temperatures may cause browning on edges while leaving centers raw.

Seventh Tip is to keep cooked pancakes warm while preparing the remaining batches by placing them in a low heated oven set at 200-degree F until ready to serve.

Eighth tip is that you must resist pressing down on your pancakes with spatula. This would compress them and rob them of their fluffiness.

Ninth tip: Be creative and add toppings of your choice like maple syrup, blueberry sauce, fresh fruits or nuts that suit your pallete.

By following these simple tips, you’ll have perfect gluten-free and dairy-free pancakes ready in no time!
