Gluten Free Pancakes (from a mix)

Sometimes you need pancakes.  Yes you can eat your breakfast cereals, smoothies, eggs BUT there is a NEED for pancakes.  Now finding a good gluten free pancake recipe is tricky.  But I am happy to say that I have found a mix that I am giving an A+ to – the WafflePancake/Crepe mix was from Namaste  I added  coconut oil, eggs and  Silk coconut milk to the mix and I was ready to make some flap jacks.

Side note:  We downsized our home of 25 years this spring and feel a bit like Joanna and Chip of Fixer-Upper.  One of our projects was the kitchen.  I probably need to do a separate post of the particulars.  I’ve included  our before and after picture.  Now back to the pancakes.




I’ve had my blue mixing bowls forever but these are very similar.  This is the griddle I have and love.  That little guy peeking in the background is the cutest tea bag infuser called Mr Tea


These pancakes have a tender texture.  I like to make mine in 4″ circles and serve them several ways.  Here are a few ideas..(1)  A little grass fed butter (Kerrigold brand), Sunflower Seed Butter, and a drizzle of pure maple syrup or (2) Organic berries – sliced and mixed with a little organic syrup to release the juices, sweetened organic whipped cream – a delicious dessert.



So excited to have a pantry.

I’ve linked up the products up above in case you are interested.

Sand Dollar Pancakes

SD Pancakes - plated

There is nothing that says breakfast like pancakes and making them the size of sand dollars makes these fluffy delights so versatile.  So think beyond breakfast.  Take 2 of these and spread some almond or sunflower seed butter and a little 100% Fruit Spread on one of them; then put the other on top – you now have a nut and jelly pancake sandwich.  Another idea:  put a little 100% Fruit Spread on top and then smother them in sliced strawberries with a garnish (which means small amount) of whipped cream or a good quality vanilla ice cream.  Want it a little fancier – sprinkle a little cinnamon on top.

  1. 2 eggs
  2. 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 cup milk (I use unsweetened almond or coconut) - the amount used depends on how thick you want your pancakes
  3. 4 Tbsp of coconut oil (melt slightly until liquid - sometimes the oil can get thick)
  4. 2 cups of flour (I used 1 1/3 cup spelt but you could use whole wheat, 1/3 cup almond flour, 1/3 cup brown rice flour)
  5. 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  6. 2 tsp baking powder
  7. 1 tsp baking soda
  8. 1 tsp salt
  9. 1 tsp cinnamon
  10. Spray coconut oil (Trader Joes) or use a little of your coconut oil
  1. Beat the eggs until frothy.
  2. Mix the rest of the ingredients in the order given.
  3. Beat until combined well but don’t over mix or your pancakes can be tough.
  4. Heat griddle between low and medium heat.
  5. Lightly grease pan with a little of the coconut oil or spray.
  6. Pour sand dollar size batter onto griddle. Cook until bubbles start to form on top. Then flip over until 2nd side is done.
  1. These freeze well and I package up 2 in saran wrap and then in a Freezer Zip Lock.
  2. If you are on the 21 Day Fix program. 2 pancakes = 1 Yellow Container

Thank you for trying to figure out what I was making a few days ago – no one guessed correctly but there were 3 of you that followed the guidelines and I’ve emailed each of you for a little information so I can get the e-cookbook to you. 

The last few weeks I have been yearning for a Pancake breakfast – The pancakes were made with spelt and coconut flour topped with strawberry fruit spread, an egg with sweet potato, carrot, zucchini and red pepper hash and added sliced strawberries and cotton candy grapes.  Yes – the grapes taste like cotton candy.
