Pancakes – Gluten Free, Dairy Free

This morning I was really craving some pancakes –  I really wanted something other than eggs for breakfast.  I had a bit of the Betty Crocker Bisquick left in the box, so I thought I would try the recipe on the box for pancakes.  The pancakes turned out great – even Bryan thought so. The recipe is very simple and makes about ten pancakes.

My dad would always make ups pancakes with chocolate chips in them and when I remembered that we had some gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free chocolate chips my sister sent us from Australia I thought I would give them a try with the gluten-free bisquick pancake mix this morning.

Pancakes using Betty Crocker’s Gluten Free Bisquick (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free)

1 cup Betty Crocker Gluten Free Bisquick Mix

1 cup soy or rice milk

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 large egg

Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl until well combined and there are no lumps.  Heat a skillet or griddle to medium heat.  Use just under 1/4 cup of mixture for each pancake.  Cook until edges have hardened and the tops start to bubble (if you are using chocolate chips, add them before the bubble appear).  Flip and cook until golden brown.  Makes about 10 pancakes.


Like I said above, these came out great. They have almost a crunchy crust to them with the insides soft and fluffy.  The GF, DF, NF chocolate chips were fantastic too!  They taste just like regular chocolate chips and melt perfectly.  I think I will have to ask my sister to send us some more of them.  So far all of the products she has sent me from Australia have been awesome.  Although these were really good, I am very sad that we now have used the last of our bisquick!

And a quick apology to Bryan – I am sorry for making you wait to eat every single meal we have until I get pictures of it.  I know you are starving, but you are truly amazing for putting up with my little obsessions, eating all the food I make, even if it isn’t all that great and for being my non-gluten-free food tester-I truly value your opinions!  You are my best friend, and I truly appreciate you and all that you do more than I could ever express with words.

  1. We are huge chocolate-chip-in-the-pancake folks over here. My kids think it is such a treat, even if it is only a few that I put in each!! Can you believe I still have not used the GF Bisquick yet to make pancakes??
    Btw, love your apology to Bryan. I am apologizing to my family on a regular basis for making them wait until I get the perfect pic….

  2. I LOVE chocolate chip pancakes!! Now if only I could find a really good egg replacer for my pancakes, sigh…. 😀

    My family has not had a warm meal in 1 1/2 years, LOL! That’s okay though, because on the rare occasion we go out to eat, my kids are actually quiet because they are mesmerized by the hot food, hehe.

    It’s all part of the plan. 😉

  3. Hi! Thanks for the heads up on the Betty Crocker mix – I was wondering if it was any good. I have been using Pamela’s Baking & Pancake mix and it’s really awesome. Better pancakes than what I used when I wasn’t gluten free. Even taste good heated up a few days later. I’ll try the Bisquick mix out too. Heidi, have you try using flax seed flour instead of egg? I’ve used it in muffins, etc. but haven’t tried in pancakes yet. Put 1 Tbls. ground flax seed in a small bowl, add 3 Tbls. warm water, stir and let sit for a couple of minutes. Then add to your recipe. Might want to give it a try.

  4. I just need to get a hold of some soy free chocolate chips. Also if I could get this Bisquick over here in Australia that would be great.

    That said, you may be interested in something I recently found online while searching on youtube that currently exists and is said to cure coeliacs and those with gluten intolerance. I have blogged about it recently at:
