Allergy Friendly Pancakes


Allergy-Friendly Pancakes


(Gluten-free, Vegan, Dairy-free, Egg-free, Soy-free, Nut-free!)

Have you been searching in vain for a gluten-free, egg-free pancake recipe? Well look no further. Not only is this recipe Gluten-Free and Vegan, it’s also free of all top 8 food allergens. Allergy-Friendly, Allergen-Free, Allergy-Free (one of these days we’ll all decide on using just one of these terms, and stick with it!)


  • ¾ cup rice milk (plus more, for thinning batter, as necessary)
  • 2 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 tbsp. agave nectar or maple syrup or granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ tsp. Ener-G Egg Replacer* mixed with 2 tbsp. rice milk
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp. King Arthur gluten-free multi-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cornmeal*
  • ½ tsp. xanthan gum or guar gum
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking powder**
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • maple syrup
  • Enjoy Life Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips


1. Combine ¾ cup of rice milk with lemon juice, and let rest about 10 minutes to sour into “buttermilk”. Add canola oil, agave nectar, and vanilla extract, whisking well.

2. Combine egg replacer with rice milk, whisking till frothy.

3. Combine flour mix, corn meal*, xanthan gum, baking powder**, baking soda, and salt. Whisk well.

4. Using a wooden spoon, make a well in the center of the bowl. Pour in rice milk mixture and egg replacer. Stir well, smoothing out any lumps. If the batter seems too thick, thin by adding more rice milk, 1 Tablespoon at a time until proper consistency is achieved. You want it thin enough to spoon out onto the griddle, but not too thin.

5. Heat griddle over medium-high heat. Grease griddle LIGHTLY.

6. Scoop out about ¼ cup of batter, per pancake. Cook, about 2 ½ minutes, until bubbles have appeared around edges of pancakes and popped, and edges are setting. Reduce temperature if pancakes are cooking too quickly. Flip and cook about 2 ½ minutes more. Transfer to warm plate. Serve warm with maple syrup, and sprinkling of Enjoy Life chips.

*For a corn-free version, omit cornmeal, use guar gum instead of xanthan gum (or use Authentic Foods corn-free xanthan gum), and increase King Arthur gluten-free multi-purpose flour to 1 ¼ cups. In place of the 1 1/2 teaspoons Ener-G Egg Replacer mixed with 2 Tablespoons rice milk, substitute 1 tablespoon flax seed meal mixed with 3 tablespoons hot water for a “flax egg”. Be prepared to add additional rice milk to the batter, to thin it as necessary, and increase cooking time by about 2 minutes. They will be thicker.

**For corn-free baking powder, look for Hain Baking Powder

    I am having a horrible time with pancakes. I am using your flour mixture not the King Arthur mix and no matter if I make them thin or make them thick or cook them a long time they never cook in the middle. It is always a sticky gooey mess and I am getting so frustrated.

      Hi George:

      Thanks for your comment. This recipe was developed with the King Arthur mix, so that really will work the best. Can you use that mix? IF you want to try with my mix, I’d recommend adding a couple extra tablespoons of flour mix at a time until you’ve thickened the batter, that will help.

      all best,

    Dear Cybele, I also am having a terrible time getting the pancakes to cook in the middle. I am using the King Arthur gluten free flour. Should I use the King Arthur baking mix instead? The batter turns out too thick for pancakes and I have to thin it out with rice milk. Adding extra tablespoons of flour mix will even make it thicker. Perhaps I should use more xanthum gum, baking soda or baking powder? Please provide guidance. Sincerely, Marsha

      Hi there Marsha:

      I’m just seeing this now. I have not made these pancakes in a dog’s year, so let me check it out. There may be a difference in the King Arthur Flour mix since I created this recipe. Give me a few days to troubleshoot. Thanks for coming by!

      Happy New Year!

    Canola oil is made from soy. This is not a soy free recipe.
