Rice Flour Pancake Recipe

It seems all the members of my little family have been taking turns going gluten free over the past couple of years. Buying gluten-free baking mixes can be expensive, so my husband developed this rice flour pancake recipe. Rice flour is a great gluten-free flour with a mild taste and it’s very affordable, especially when you’re milling your own!


Our 3 year old loves to help in the kitchen. I’m afraid many hands don’t make for light work in this case, but it does make for lots of fun!

I love that these are nice and fluffy just like “real” pancakes, even though they’re gluten free.

Rice Flour Pancake Recipe
Recipe type: Gluten Free
Cuisine: Breakfast
Serves: 4
  • 2 cups freshly ground rice flour
  • ½ cup milled flax seed
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ Tb salt
  • 1 Tb sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1¾ cups milk + extra as needed for consistency
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Oil or butter to coat pan
  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl (or a glass 4-cup measuring cup makes the batter easy to pour).
  2. Add egg, vanilla, milk, and oil. Mix until smooth. Add extra milk as necessary to achieve a smooth consistency. The batter should flow slowly off the spoon or whisk, not clumping and not runny.
  3. Heat a large large skillet or griddle to medium heat and lightly coat with butter or coconut oil.
  4. Pour batter in 4-6 inch diameter puddles and let cook until center is bubbly and edges are slightly dry. Flip and check to see if they’re brown in about 60-90 seconds.

    What kind of rice did you use? Will any kind work?

  2. I think I used short grain brown rice, but I don’t see why you couldn’t use any kind. I hope you enjoy the pancakes! 🙂
