1 tsp gluten free baking powder

3 large eggs

100 ml milk or milk substitute

coconut oil for frying


Mix together the flour and baking powder

these pancakes are very delicate and lighter than regular pancakes. I have a similar recipe on my blog for tiny pancakes than can be used for blinis.

Gluten free pancakes – makes 6 large pancakes

250 g  gluten free plain flour

3 eggs

250ml milk or milk substitute

200ml water possibly slightly less

2 tbsp melted coconut oil ( I use lucy bee fair trade organic coconut oil )

coconut oil for frying


sift the flour in the bowl

make a well and add the beaten eggs and a little milk

gradually blend in the flour

add remaining milk, oil and water

leave to stand for 1/2 hr

heat a good non stick frying pan add a little coconut oil

use a ladle to pour batter into the pan, use entire pan

the pancakes will start to cook in about a minute and tiny bubbles will appear, once the pancakes start to release from the pan it is time to toss or flip with a spatula


enjoy with a selection of topping sweet or savoury

these pancakes are identical to regular pancakes/crepes a favourite with my gluten eating family



and  finally Banana pancakes– makes 10 little pancakes

1 large banana

2 eggs


mash banana

mixed mashed banana and beaten eggs together


fry in coconut oil


a delicious little pancake, light with just a faint taste of banana.


serve warm with your favourite topping

Topping ideas-


fresh berries

sliced banana

lemon and sugar ( I used dextrose as this is fructose free )

Nutella style chocolate and hazelnut spread



maple syrup

brown rice syrup ( fructose free ) tastes like a very mild honey


cream cheese and smoked salmon

mascarpone and spinach

cheese and tomato

goats cheese and basil

mushrooms and cheese

Enjoy Pancake day!
