Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Pancakes

* This post contains affiliate links.

A common misconception when making foods gluten-free is that they are boring or have no taste, which is totally not true.  This gluten-free, dairy-free pancake recipe is always a family hit.


1 cup of Bob's Red Mill 1:1 Gluten Free Flour
1 tablespoon of ground flax seed/flax meal
2 teaspoons of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of honey
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk


  1. Grease and preheat medium sized griddle or pan.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, mix the flour, ground flax seed/flax meal, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a second mixing bowl, mix honey, vanilla, unsweetened applesauce and milk together.
  4. Add in the wet ingredients slowly into the dry ingredients so that all the wet ingredients are incorporated and there are no lumps in the mixture.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter onto the griddle.
  6. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until the pancakes begin to bubble, then flip.  Cook for another 1 to 2 minutes.
  7. Remove from griddle and enjoy.

Optional Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon for a different flavor.
  • Add in gluten-free chocolate chips at the end of mixing all ingredients together for that chocolaty goodness.
  • Substitute 2 tablespoons of honey for 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or sugar.
  • Bob's Red Mill 1:1 Gluten Free Flour was used in this recipe, but you can use any type of gluten free flour or even all-purpose baking flour if you do not want gluten-free pancakes.
  • You can use cow's milk to substitute almond milk.
  • Substitute one egg for ground flax seed/flax meal.


All ingredients listed are gluten-free so that these pancakes are truly gluten-free.  If you are not concerned with gluten allergies or intolerances, feel free to use non-gluten free ingredients. 

Also, we tend to like our pancakes crispy on the outside so we use a little bit more oil in our pan to kind of "fry" the pancake.

For an added bonus, make a double batch and freeze any pancakes that are leftover for those busy mornings when you don't have time to prepare anything.  Just reheat in a toaster oven until warm.
