How to: Gluten-free Pancakes



3 min read



Pancake Day, otherwise known as Shove Tuesday is just around the corner. Batter-based foods can be tricky if you have a gluten-free diet, so here are 4 shop-bought gluten-free pancakes and our favourite GF pancake recipe!

Historically, Shrove Tuesday is a traditional feast before the start of Lent, the 40 days fasting period in the lead up to Easter. So, it was an opportunity to use up eggs and fats.

Ready-made Pancakes…

These pre-cooked pancakes are perfect for a busy school run breakfast or a quick snack.

These scotch-style pancakes are perfect with a little bit of salted butter and syrup. They only take 2 minutes in the toaster, so they’re great if you’re in a morning rush. They are also milk free which is great if you also suffer from lactose intolerance.

Not many of the supermarket’s own-brand gluten-free pancakes are fantastic but these are pretty good. Unlike other options, these aren’t overly sweet and have a nice chewy texture.

Sometimes making pancakes yourself is a fun activity but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little help! Pancake mix is a great way to get the proportions correct, so all you have to worry about is perfecting your pancake flip!
