Gluten free pancakes are tricky to make. In theory, they are no different than any other pancakes, but GF pancakes always end up crumbly, or really dry.
I went on a vacation with my family to the Cape (Cape Cod, MA) and a restaurant we went to had gluten free oatmeal pancakes. I thought they would be dry and crumbly like any other one. I was shocked at how good they were to the point that I was counting down the 4 hours it takes for gluten to react if I eat it by accident.
I started to experiment with gluten free oatmeal pancakes and came up with this recipe. These GF pancakes are soft, and spongy like a normal wheat flour pancake. They are easy to make and taste great too!
Here is how to whip these bad boys up!
Put all your dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Flour, Oats, Xanthan Gum, Baking Powder, Salt, Sugar,
Combine all your wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Milk, Egg, Oil, Vanilla.
Then pour into the bowl with the dry ingredients.
Mix together with a spoon, or rubber spatula, and your gluten free pancake batter will look like this.
The batter will not be smooth due to the oats.
I cook my pancakes on an electric griddle set to 350 degrees.
Scoop out the batter, and place on the griddle. This batter is thick, so use the spoon, or scoop to flatten out the batter.
This batter will not spread like a traditional pancake batter.
Cook your pancakes for a few minutes on each side, and you will have some soft, delicious gluten free oatmeal pancakes!
