Simple & Quick Gluten Free Pancakes
“Pancake Saturdays” grace our kitchen once or twice a month and we just love them!

Pancakes don’t have to be the nutrition disaster most people think they are. Many Saturdays I soak a large bowl of oats and make these nourishing soaked oat pancakes. We serve a pancake or two topped with real butter or coconut butter and either fruit puree or raw honey along-side fried eggs, bacon, or sausage to round it out.

I like to rotate our grains around, so every other time I make the pancakes using this very simple, quick way. No soaking, no fuss. Everything into the bowl to blend – even Bisquick is about that quick.

If you follow my Instagram #rgnschoollunch or #toddlerlunch hashtags you know I use these pancakes right from my freezer to make simple sandwiches. We don’t have the budget to afford gluten free breads, and honestly the ingredients in many of them aren’t the greatest for having week in and week out. We don’t make sandwiches daily, but I do pull them out about once a week and it makes for a quick meal for either breakfast or lunch packing.

  • I very often double this batch and freeze. Just lay the cooled off pancakes flat in a freezer bag. You can pop them in the toaster right from the freezer for a quick breakfast addition.
  • If you want a thicker/denser pancake just use less water.
  • Here is the gelatin you will want to use to make your gelatin eggs if you are egg free.
  • I get my tapioca flour, white rice flour, and brown rice flour cheapest lately on Amazon. Sometimes our bulk section at our health food store has them cheaper so just keep a price check.
  • You can absolutely get batter made up the night before so you just have to cook them off in the morning – the cooking part goes so fast – a set of them cook up in just a couple minutes!
  • Wisk up the dry ingredients into a big air tight container and keep like “Bisquick” in the cupboard! Or give it away to a friend with the wet ingredients labeled to add in!
  • Dress up your pancakes for the season! Add cinnamon and cloves. Swap some of the moisture for pumpkin! In the summer add some fresh blueberries while they cook!

  1. Hi! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your blog! I have tried many of your recipes and they are wonderful! I look forward each week to a new post! I had a question, could arrowroot powder be substituted in this recipe? I have a sensitivity to tapioca starch.

    1. Hi Melissa! First, thank you so much for your kind words – that actually totally makes my day 🙂 And yes – arrowroot powder or potato starch can be used the same as tapioca. I usually have the tapioca on hand because it is pretty cheap in comparison – but I think you are the 3rd or 4th person in the last couple months that have told me of a tapioca sensitivity so I think I need to start including the other options in my baking posts! I didn’t realize it could be a thing! Thank you for asking!

    1. Hi Anna! You certainly can but you are right, you might taste it a little. I would go with buckwheat over the sorghum. Maybe add a splash of vanilla or almond extract to help with the taste 😉

  2. These look great. So good to have gf recipes that are totally homemade and not Bob’s mix which causes gas for lots of folks (if you don’t mind me saying). Lovely recipe and I love all the folks you are helping!!!!

    1. Megan you are absolutely right 😉 I am not a big fan of bean flours and many pre-made GF mixes use it because it provides great texture. It is really hard on the gut though!

  3. 5 stars
    Thank you for making recipes that actually come out as they state they will! I have had great luck with your posts! I really appreciate what you do!

    1. Hi Nina! I’m so glad you are enjoying the pancake recipe! I don’t have a waffle iron believe it or not! So I am not familiar with how to make waffles. I am sure if you played around with the batter (I’m thinking make it a little thicker or use less liquid) it should work though!

  4. Can I use Namaste flour in place of the tapioca flour, brown rice flour, and white rice flour? Also, could I substitute avocado oil for the coconut oil? I am new to gluten free cooking and appreciate your help! My kids love the mini pancake muffins and I want to try this for them too.
