Gluten Free Vegan Pancakes

by Jill Dalton

Weekends just aren’t the same without pancakes. Light and fluffy, smothered in blueberry sauce, these pancakes are the perfect way to start your weekend. One of our family’s favorite times of day to eat pancakes is dinner time. Breakfast for dinner! We usually pair them with roasted potato squares and fresh fruit.

I like this recipe. I tried it with basil, and oregano in the soak water, and I made large ones to make pizza crusts. It worked out fine.

Super recipe! Can I use rice flour instead of buckwheat flour to make it still fluten-free?

Jill Dalton June 10, 2020 - 10:43 am

I haven’t tried it but I think it would still work. =)

Thank you. Looking forward to trying but from my research oats are not gluten free. They contain a different type of gluten. It’s not only wheat that contains gluten. I think it’s a confusing issue but good to flag up. Anyone else heard anything different?

I purchase “gluten free” oats online from Vitacost or Amazon.

Bob’s Red Mill also has GF oats I buy at my health food store. In Montana, Montana Wheat also sells oats and GF oats.

Another tip- I use the Buckwheat flour and I sub Quinoa flour for the Oat flour sometimes. It works well in this recipe. Also….thanks Jill for all of your hard work, I watch your recipe videos on YouTube also!

These look great! Do you think I could bake the mix n a silat? Also, can I can make my own buckwheat flour (grind the groats in my Vitamix)?

Jill Dalton August 8, 2020 - 10:21 am

Ooops, and yes, you can use your own ground buckwheat groats. Even better =)

Rhonda Weisberg August 7, 2020 - 3:21 pm

oh – geez – just saw the typos! bake on a silicone mat?

Jill Dalton August 8, 2020 - 10:20 am

Hmmm, I’m not sure. I haven’t done it but I think it would work.

I’m out of bananas, I might try substitute applesauce as a sub. These sound yummy, GF too!

Linda January 31, 2021 - 11:46 am

I made these and really liked them. I forgot to add the banana and they came out great. I cooked them in the waffle iron.
