Gluten-free Orange Yogurt Pancakes and Multigrain Pancake Mix

Well, it is national Pancake day today! And I decided to whip up a gf pancake mix to use to make all kinds of pancakes. You can use this mix to make any of the regular mix pancakes on the blog or make these soft and zesty Pancakes with orange zest, non dairy yogurt and ginger. Load up with orange slices, maple, vegan butter, whipped coconut cream and serve up. 

The Pancake mix has Oat, almond, amaranth and rice flours with just a bit of starch. If you like the pancakes even more fluffy and less cracked, add a bit more starch. You can also reduce the starch to just 2 Tbsp in the entire mix. These pancakes make for a filling and delicious breakfast. all my gf goods seem to pass hubb’s can’t detect if it is gf taste test since I started avoiding Sorghum in them. I used sorghum a lot in the earlier days of gf break baking experiments and hubbs remembers those disasters 😉

Mix the yogurt, water, orange zest and add a cup of the pancake mix to it.

Ladle the batter onto a hot and greased pan. Wait for the pancakes to rise and get slightly bubbly.

    My gluten free pancake mix is not making good pancakes or waffles. They always stick to the pan or waffle maker. I tried oiling the pan and waffle maker, but didn’t work. What am I doing wrong?

    1. Richa says:

      hmm, i havent had that problem with this mix. check the following. the pan should be hot, grease the pan well, cook the pancakes till they get bubbly and slightly dry on the edges before trying to flip. was the batter thick like pancake batter? too much liquid in the batter can cause the batter to stick.

    These pancakes were amazing!!! The first gf vegan pancakes I’ve made that have worked beautifully and tasted just like regular pancakes!

    I made the plain ones, with just a few small substitutions:
    I didn’t have any amaranth, oat or coconut flour, so for the 1/2 cup oat flour I used a mix of millet and brown rice flour, for the 1/4 cup amaranth I used a mix of sorghum and millet flours and for the 2tbsp coconut flour I used potato flour (also very absorbent). For the liquids I found I only needed about half of the 1/3 cup water to get the consistency right.

    They cooked easily, flipped well and were soft and fluffy and delicious to eat! Thank you so much! The ingredients list is long but I tend to have all of these things at home anyway and to put it all together takes no time at all 😀 I’m so happy I found this recipe! I don’t doubt that non-vegan non-gf people will love these pancakes too.
