Gluten Free / Sugar Free / Lactose Free Pancakes

Hearty and delicious pancakes, courtesy of Jen.



Ingredients / Directions: 

1 cup of brown rice flour
1/2 cup of buckwheat flour
1/2 cup of flax meal
1/2 cup of Splenda (optional - if you want the pancakes to be slightly
sweet without syrup)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon guar gum

Mix this all together with a fork.

Then add 1 beaten egg (organic is best!)
1 1/2 cups of water (or rice milk)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Blend well with a rubber spatula. The consistency should be thicker
than usual pancake batter. It will seem gluey (sounds delicious!).
Heat a skillet to just above medium with oil or vegetable shortening.
When the batter hits the pan it will need to be spread about a little
with a spatula. These are thick pancakes but they are filled with
goodness! You can add berries or bananas to the batter for a different

These sound hearty and good.

These sound hearty and delicious. I'll replace the splenda with a different non-sugar sweetener like xylitol (2 Tbsp) or stevia (4 - 6 packs) - maybe a tsp of cinnamon too - yum!

Stevia replacement

Patty, did you try the Stevia replacement? If so, how did that work out?

Hi Jen, I haven't tried

Hi Jen, I haven't tried these yet... buckwheat flour is going on my grocery list. (I would only use a little bit of stevia as it has a strong flavor, maybe the equvuiant to 4 servings (= 4 tsp sugar)).

No kidding they are packed

No kidding they are packed with goodness!
These are delicious. Can't believe how many I've eaten in the past 2 days - Yikes!
I sweetened with Stevia with great results.
Thanks for a great recipe.


How much Stevia did you use?


you could use Agave Nectar I think too.

 Yes, and since agave is

 Yes, and since agave is liquid, maybe exchange it for some of the other liquid in the recipe, like 1/4c agave replaces 1/4c water. The agave would make these high in unrefined natural sugar, so they wouldn't really be sugar-free...

Would the agave work for

Would the agave work for someone with a sugar cane allergy?

That's something you may

That's something you may want to ask your health care provider or look-up somewhere reputable.
