DIY: Delicious Gluten Free Pancakes

This post was written by our Kutztown Employee, Maddy.  Thanks Maddy, these look great!

About six months ago, my mom and I found out we can’t eat gluten. Since then we have been trying out different recipes for gluten free foods. Here is our favorite recipe for gluten free pancakes. (Based on a recipe from

1 cup Brown Rice Flour
3 tbsp. Tapioca Flour
1/3 cup Potato or Cornstarch
2 tbsp. Ground Flax Seed (optional, makes pancakes even more fluffy)
1 tbsp. Sugar
1 ½ tsp. Baking Powder
½ tsp. Baking Soda
½ tsp. Salt
½ tsp. Xanthan Gum
2 Eggs
3 tbsp. Canola Oil or Butter
1 ½ to 2 cups Buttermilk (depends on your preferred thickness of batter)



  1. In a large bowl, mix or sift together the flours, starch, flax seed, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and xanthan gum.
  2. In another bowl, mix eggs, buttermilk, and oil.
  3. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Stir until a few lumps remain
  4. Heat a pan, skillet, or griddle over medium heat. Put some oil or butter in the pan to keep the pancakes from sticking.
  5. Spoon batter onto pan and cook until bubble start to form.
  6. Flip over and cook the other side until golden brown.
  7. Take out of pan and eat!

You can put syrup on your pancakes or I like to put jelly on mine. Also, you can put cut up fruit or chocolate chips in the pancakes during step 5. Enjoy!
