Gluten Free And Vegan Pancakes


  • 1 cup all purpose gluten free flour**
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla powder
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cup water (or more to thin out)



  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Add 2 tbsp maple syrup and 1 cup of water. Whisk together until smooth. If the batter is too thick, add more water. Batter should pour easily.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. When pan is hot, add pancakes (no need for oil). When the tops begin to bubble and the bottoms begin to brown, flip pancakes and cook for a few more minutes.
  4. Serve with maple syrup, fruit, jam, coconut whipped cream, or whatever you desire. πŸ™‚
  5. Enjoy!

** If you don’t care for gluten free flour, you can substitute wheat flour or spelt and leave out the xanthan gum.

      Nice! This recipe is the closest thing to a regular pancake I’ve ever had. It’s so similar! πŸ™‚

      1. Where would you purchase xantham gum? I was told that’s bacteria waste. Is this true?

      2. kathyrhn says:

        Hmm I’ve never heard that before! I quality xanthan gum will be made of corn. You only ever use it on tiny amounts too. You can get it at your local health food store, and bobs red Mill is a good brand available almost everywhere πŸ™‚ If you’d like you can also substitute this for spelt or wheat flour if you dont need it to be gluten free, and just leave out the xanthan gum.
