Auf wiedersehen, wheat! When gluten-free pancakes look and taste this good, we're not interested in anything else
When you see the variety of gluten-free pancake recipes out there, you'll realise there's no need for boring old wheat flour at all...
Flippin' heck, these look good. And, as they're made with a virtuous combo of oatmeal, rice flour, coconut oil and almond milk, this is a totally dairy- and wheat-free zone.
Health hipsters seem to have lost their heads over these little black seeds, but whether you believe the hype or not, this simple recipe guarantees fluffy, puffy pancakes. A blend of buckwheat flour and ground almonds means you only need use a couple of tablespoons of your pricey chia too. Phew.
Cornmeal or polenta (whatever you like to call it) makes glorious sunny-yellow pancakes. It's also cheap as chips (or should we say corn?), so great if you're on a budget. Make sure you don't get lumbered with the instant stuff: while it's a great timesaver if you're actually making polenta, it has no place here.
If you're the type to eat breakfast and then feel hungry five minutes later, give these a flip. Quinoa is actually a seed, not a grain and surprisingly good to bake with – we love these apple and quinoa flapjack-style slices too.
Never heard of it before? Nor had we. Tigernuts (aka earth almonds) are actually small tubers (just like potatoes) and can be ground up to make a sweet, nutty-flavoured flour. With a touch of cinnamon and apple cider vinegar, this pancake recipe is made for adventurous types.
Coconut flour, coconut oil, coconut milk... it seems we can't get enough of this husky tropical fruit. Impressively this gluten-free recipe uses all three.
These three ingredient paleo pancakes are a total doddle to make. And with a tablespoon of finely ground coffee in the mix, they're great for night owls who need a kick-start in the morning.
These hot potato pancakes enveloping lavender and honey-roast fruits have got us melting faster than microwaved butter. Gluten-free or otherwise, no one should miss out on these.
