Items used for pancakes
You’ll absolutely need Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pancake Mix. You can also buy it in bulk from stores like Smart Food Service.
I’m using this electric griddle which is really large and holds a lot of big pancakes!
I LOVE this nonstick avocado spray. I usually buy it from Costco in a 2-pack. It has a high smoke point and doesn’t have any bad stuff (propellants) in it!
I love using a strong metal whisk to mix up the heavy pancake batter.
A really large mixing bowl is needed for this pancake recipe
Don’t forget the maple syrup, the real stuff. It tastes so much better and is healthier than the imitation kind.
How to make pancakes
- Preheat griddle to medium high heat about 375F. I like to get this going first so that by the time my pancake batter is mixed, it’s nice and hot and helps give a quick rise to make fluffy gluten free pancakes with that perfect golden color we all love.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Mix to combine.
- Add remaining ingredients and whisk together batter until lumps are gone. Add additional water a little at a time as needed until the pancake batter reaches the right pouring consistency. It it’s too thick, the pancakes won’t level out well on the griddle. If the batter is too thin, you’ll have thin pancakes that won’t rise as high.
- Spray the griddle with non stick spray right before pouring pancake batter.
- Pour pancakes onto griddle.
- Wait until the pancakes look puffy with rounded edges that look almost cooked and bubbly on top like the picture above, about 4 minutes. Flip the pancakes and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
- Repeat for remaining pancake batter.
- You may notice that the batter thickens as it rests in between batches. This is due to starches expanding further. Add and whisk in a little more water to correct batter to a pour-able consistency again.

Now the pancakes are ready to eat. Top them with butter (or your favorite non dairy butter), maple syrup and fruit.
I love blueberries on top or adding blueberries right into the pancake batter too! My hubby’s personal favorite is slathering his pancakes with peanut butter.

Fluffy Gluten Free Pancakes
- 6 cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pancake Mix
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp Himalayan pink salt
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup oil
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 5 eggs
- 4 1/2 cup water (or more for desired consistency)
Preheat griddle to medium high heat, about 375F.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients in the order listed. Whisk together until batter is smooth and lumps are gone. More water may be added until desired pouring consistency. The batter will thicken as it rests, so a little water added later to the batter bowl may be necessary.
Spray griddle with nonstick spray. Ladle pancakes onto preheated griddle. Flip pancakes after they have risen with some bubbles forming at the top and edges start to round out, about 4 minutes. Continue to cook on the other side for another 3 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with butter (or non dairy butter), maple syrup and your favorite fruit on top.
