UPDATE (April 4, 2015): I’ve learned a thing or two about pancakes since writing this original recipe, and have a much, much better recipe for you now! Skip this and go here for delicious, fluffy and delightful vegan and gluten free pancakes!

This morning I had a punishing spinning class, with a huge amount of sprinting. My heart rate was way up there the whole time and I know that my thighs will feel it tomorrow.  It was great! But afterwards I felt like I needed a pretty hearty brunch, so I decided to make pancakes. 

This gluten-free pancake recipe is super easy and takes just a few minutes to come together. I whip it up in a large measuring cup, so I can easily pour the mixture in my cast iron pan.

Remember, for perfect pancakes, heat the pan on high for a few minutes – you want a nice evenly hot pan – and then turn it down to medium-low when you start cooking.

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour (I use Bob's Red Mill)
  2. 1/4 tsp baking soda
  3. 1/4 tsp baking powder
  4. 1 tsp lemon juice
  5. 1 cup almond milk
  6. Earth balance, for cooking
Instructions
  1. Heat a pan on high for about 3 minutes until the surface is evenly hot.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together in a large measuring cup.
  3. Add liquid ingredients and mix together using a fork.
  4. Turn the heat down to medium-low and add a touch of Earth Balance to the pan.
  5. Pour about 1/3 cup of mixture in the pan and let it cook until there are bubbles in the middle of the pancake and it starts to lift up on the sides.
  6. Flip it over and cook for about 1-2 minutes more until it starts to lightly brown.
  7. Repeat until all the mixture has been used.
Notes
  1. This makes about 6 medium pancakes or 4 large ones and is just the perfect amount for breakfast for two people. I like pretty thin pancakes, but if you like yours thicker reduce the amount of milk. Feel free to double, or even triple the recipe if you're feeding more!
