Gluten Free Pancakes

I will give you my huge recipe first, which feeds my family of 13! Although, if you were making these just for yourself, and trying to stay within the carb limits of THM…it would serve around 30! πŸ™‚ My kids have pretty healthy appetites! Following the huge recipe, are recipe amounts for 8 Trim Healthy Mama size servings, and then, I’ve even included the single serve recipe amounts! πŸ™‚

Gluten Free Pancakes (large family recipe)

Dry:
6 cups oat flour (I grind rolled oats in the vitamix!)
1 cup coconut flour
1 cup quinoa flour (I also grind this in my vitamix)
1 cup garbanzo (chickpea) flour
1/4 cup baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon THM stevia extract

Wet:
24 ounces or 3 cups Greek yogurt
3 cups egg whites
6-8 cups almond milk or water (start with the smaller amount, especially if using water)

Instructions:
Combine the dry ingredients,and mix.

(Now’s a good time to begin to heat your skillets. I use a medium low heat.. and adjust each skillet later as needed.)

Add the wet ingredients. Whisk well.

Lightly spray your heated skillets (I use cast iron), with coconut oil. Or, if you don’t like using a spray, just get a small rag greasy with some coconut oil, and rub the skillets with it to lightly grease them.

I like to use a measuring scoop to dip the pancake batter. You can use any size for your family, but 1/4 to 1/3 cup scoops make a decent pancake for those following THM. (And you can have 2).

Pour (or scoop) some pancake batter into your skillet, fry till bubbly. Turn and fry the other side. Repeat till all the batter is gone! This will take awhile for this size recipe!

This is the single serve recipe. And pictured is my most often way of eating them. I heat up frozen blueberries in a little water. (Here I used 1 cup blueberries and 1/2 cup water). You could also sweeten and thicken them. But I enjoy them runny, and it is easy. I like how the blueberry juice soaks into the pancakes! πŸ™‚

Another favorite way to eat pancakes! It makes a good snack topped with my chocolate peanut butter sauce! lotsalittlelambs.com/chocolate-peanut-butter-sauce/

  1. Thank you for sharing your recipe! It looks amazing, and I can’t wait to try it out! Do you suppose these would freeze well? Say, if I made the 8 THM servings? I am looking for anything I can grab and reheat quickly for work days πŸ™‚ THANKS SO MUCH!

    1. You are welcome! Yes, I ‘think’ they should freeze, and thaw well. I keep meaning to do this for myself, too.

  2. We made these over the weekend and subbed in 2 cans of coconut milk for the Greek yogurt as a dairy free option. It worked great and everyone loved them. And yes, they froze well!

    1. I’m so glad you liked them! And thanks for letting me know how they froze. πŸ™‚ That is exciting that the recipe worked with your sub to make it dairy free! I am assuming that your sub was for the largest recipe? I wonder how much fat content that adds to the recipe for those following THM, and if it would still fall in an E category or if it would make it a crossover…

      1. Yes, this was for the largest batch. I’m guessing that with the coconut milk it would be a crossover but I’m fairly new to THM and not real familiar with the limits. I also used whole eggs instead of egg whites because I didn’t have enough eggs to make just whites so mine definitely were more of a crossover. But for my family, they need the weight gain and I can just watch my portions and frequency. Thanks for a great recipe!
