These pancakes are vegan, gluten and sugar-free and it's the best pancakes recipe I've ever tried, it's so awesome and really easy to make.
This is a healthy version of pancakes with less cholesterol and fat than other recipes, but it tastes amazing, you're gonna love it. We eat these pancakes with sliced banana and agave syrup, it's our favorite topping!
We usually use bananas or applesauce instead of eggs in our sweet vegan recipes, but you can also use flax eggs or chia seeds. We like bananas and apple sauce because they are cheap and so easy to get, but we'll share with you recipes using other alternatives.
We've used soy milk, but you can also use other plant milk and you can make you own milk, it's cheaper, healthier and it tastes amazing. You can make almond milk following our recipe, it's quick and easy!
These pancakes are gluten-free because we've used rice and oat flour instead of wheat flour. You can find rice flour in many supermarkets and grocery stores, and we make our oat flour grinding oats, but you can buy it too.
Although you can use other kind of flour, maybe you should add more or less milk, but your pancakes will be awesome too!
We love agave syrup, it's a great and healthy sugar substitute, but you can use honey (if you're not vegan), maple syrup, sugar or whatever sweetener you like. You can try the batter because it's egg-free and you can add more sweetener if you want.
I really love vanilla flavor, that's why I use vanilla extract in almost all my sweet recipes, but I only use homemade vanilla extract, it's really easy to make and soooo cheap. Vanilla extract is optional, so you don't have to use it if you don't want to.
You're gonna love these pancakes because they are soft, fluffy, sweet, healthy and your kitchen is gonna smell like heaven, but be careful, they are addictive and you'll always want more!
Vegan Gluten Free Pancakes
- 1 cup rice flour
- 1 cup oat flour
- 2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup soy milk
- 2 tablespoons agave syrup
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, optional
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 2 bananas
- Mix dry ingredients in a bowl (rice flour, oat flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon).
- Mix wet ingredients in another bowl (milk, agave syrup, vanilla extract and oil). Add sliced bananas and blend until smooth. You also can add smashed bananas, so you won't need to blend.
- Combine dry and wet ingredients with a blender or with a wood spoon.
- Place ¼ cup of batter in a hot pan lightly greased and cook for about two minutes for each side.
- Serve with sliced banana and agave syrup.
Do you have any advice to replace the Oat flour. We are having so much fun with my sons, egg/dairy/oat/almond/amaranth/almond/greenbean/kidneybean elimination diet.
Hi Emily! Any flour ir okay, I also love brown rice and buckwheat flour. If they can eat gluten, spelt or rye flour are also great choices. Have a nice day!
This recipe looks delicious. I have been missing pancakes since going vegan gluten free. I just have one question. Have you, or anyone, tried using almond flour instead of the rice and oat flours? Can't wait to try it!
Hi Alica! Thanks a lot 😀 I don't, but I think it could work. Have a nice day!
Thank you sooo much for this recipe! I needed one that would be the most basic as possible without having "gluten free all purpose flour", since I don't have one on hand, but rather do have rice and oat flour. Your recipe is a godsend to my celiac son and husband, I do think that they can eat egg, howevr this recipe is great. And better yet, vegan! I used maple syrup and hazelnut milk, it was perfect. I haven't tried making it with soy and honey, but i have a feeling that it wouldn't taste as good withh soy and honey. I suggest that you give it a try, you will not be disappointed. Now that i have discovered your site, i am looking forward to see if there will be more gluten free dairy free soy free recipes, especially ones that hopefully my 3yr old will devour, despite his pickiness!
Hi Veronica! I'm so glad you enjoyed the pancakes 🙂 Thanks a lot for your kind words. Have a nice day!
Awesome recipie, thanks! Does brown rice flour works for this recipe? Thanks a lot!
Hi Ber! You're so welcome 😀 Yes, it works, but maybe you'll need to add some extra liquid. Have a nice day!
The modern craze is Aquafaba instead of eggs. It is unbelievable cheap something which usually is thrown down the drain! Google for more info.
Hi Joe! Thanks a lot for your comment 🙂
Magdalena O says
Can you make this in advance and refrigerate batter?
Hi Magdalena! I thick so, but I prefer to make all the pancakes and store them in the fridge or the freezer. Have a nice day!
Magda O says
How do you store in fridge and/or freezer?
Hi Magda! I keep them in a sealed container 🙂
Hi there, I've had trouble getting the pancakes to work properly. The mixture is extremely thick and once in the pan becomes very rubbery and so doesn't want to flip just scrunched up as you go to get under it with a spatula. Do you have any tips as to what's be going wrong? I also added more milk to thin it out to see if that helped but it had the same problem. Would love for this recipe to work for me! Thank you in advance.
Hi Georgia! I'm so sorry the recipe didn't work for you. Try to add less flour next time 😉
Hello! Thanks for such great recipe! Though I'm kind of confused with the nutrition info, "Serving size: 1 pancakes Calories: 136" does that mean one pancake has 136 calories? Thank you for reply xx
Hi Valerie! We don't count calories anymore, we just eat a healthy diet and enjoy food. I used https://www.caloriecount.com/ and 1 pancake has 136 calories according to this site. Have a nice day!
They were simply the best pancakes I have ever made.
It's so hard to find VEGAN & GLUTE-FREE recipes that both work (bind,etc) and taste amazing.
In the last week, I've tried 5 recipes and your's WINS hands down!!!
Hi Paul! I'm soooo glad to read that 🙂 Thanks a lot for your kind words!
Hi there, could I replace the oat flour with corn flour or arrow root flour? (Just reading your guide to gluten free flour) thank you!
Hi Rebecca! I think it could work, but use brown rice flour if you can 😉 Hope you enjoy the pancakes!
Thank you! Iused spelt flour in the end, but found that I needed to add an extra half cup of milk to get the consistency I wanted. I also left out the agave nectar and they were perfect! Will definitely be passing this on to my vegan friend for whom I made them. 🙂
You're so welcome! I'm so glad it worked!

Something went horrible wrong with my batch, the two adjustments that I made to the recipe was using brown rice flour and one banana instead of the two. My pancakes turned out very crumbly and thick (fat) nothing like the pictures you have, I measured my flour on a scale so I know I didn't use too many wet ingredients, but something was definitely off, any ideas?
Hi Ogi! You should follow the recipe, if you don't, I don't know if it's going to work... If you use brown rice flour, don't add more banana and if the batter is to dry, add some milk until it's okay. Hope it helps!
These were amazing, I used plain flour instead of the two others and they turned out amazing
Hi Cara! Thank you so much 🙂 I'm glad you enjoy them!
I just tried this recipe, but made some alterations and it turned out perfec . Thank you so much!
You're welcome Aaron! 😀
I can't find your article about different types of gluten free flours on your website. Can you send me the link? I want to make these pancakes but my blend is rice, potato and tapioca (King Arthur Blend). Thanks.
Hi Anne! Here it is: http://simpleveganblog.com/gluten-free-flours/ 😉
What kind of rice flour works best? White rice flour? Brown rice? Sweet white rice?
Hi Reagan! White and brown rice flours work well 🙂
Love this recipe so much, thanks!
Hi Rhi! Thank you so much! 🙂
Hi Iosune, thank you so much for this recipe, the pancakes are delicious, my husband thought they would not work, in Germany we call them Eierkuchen, eggcakes, and now we have Eierkuchen without eggs and in my opinion they are much better than the original 🙂
Just read you are moving to Germany, will be interesting to read about your life there. Wish you a great time!
Hi Ulli! You're so welcome 🙂 We're so excited! We love Germany and there are so many beautiful places we wan to visit 😀 Have a nice day and thanks for your kind words!
These are great pancakes for a strict diet. Quiets bananay though. Next time I make these I think I will use 1 banana or even a half and then use apple sauce instead. If you like bananas though it tastes fine. If you can't have soy as I know some diets don't allow you can use almond milk instead. This is a great recipe. I totally recommend this.
Hi Charissa! Yes, you can use any plant milk instead of the soy milk 😉 Thanks a lot for your comment!!!
I have to say, I have tried several different GF healthy vegan pancakes and always end up being a bit dissapointed with the taste and especially the texture. But these were really good! I think you can taste the banana so if you're really sensetive to that maybe sub them for something else. But i dont mind, so these were actually pretty great!
BTW, I used maple syrup instead of agave and oat milk instead of soy and just a bit less oil, still great!
Hi Christine! Thanks a lot for your kind words 😀 So glad you liked the pancakes 😉 Maple syrup tastes awesome and is so healthy. I use oat milk now and is one of my favorite plant milks 😉 Have a nice day!
Melissa Bevan says
Hi, do you have to use two different flours? I have loads of brown rice flour but not anything else ?
Hi Melissa! If you only use brown rice flour the recipe will work as well, but maybe you'll need to add more or less flour 😉
