Gluten free pancakes from scratch (dairy free too)

If you don't want to make them from scratch you can follow the recipe by clicking here which makes them using Bob's pancake mix as a base. The following recipe I like a bit better because it just seems to have a fresher taste. (NOTE: if you prefer a buckwheat pancake (buckwheat is gluten free, then check this link:  AND IF YOU PREFER A BANANA CREPE WITH NO FLOUR AT ALL GO HERE:

First you make your flour base and when making the pancakes you will only use 2 cups of this mixture:

1 & 1/4 cup of bean flour (either soy or chickpea flour)
1 cup of cornstarch
1 cup tapioca flour
1 cup of rice flour (either brown rice or white rice)

Mix the above together

Next to make the pancakes you will need:

1 ripe banana
2 cups water (I use a bit less --start with less and add more if you like)
1/2 cup quick type oats not cooked (Bob's makes a gluten free one if regular oats are a problem)
1 & 1/2 cups of the above flour mixture
1 tsp cinnamon
a pinch of nutmeg
vanilla extract to taste (I use about 1/2 of a capful)
1 & 1/2 tsp Xanthan gum
2 tsp Baking powder
a bit of salt if desired

Mash the banana thoroughly. Mix the water and the banana. Add the remaining ingredients and don't over mix--batter will be a bit lumpy. Preheat your grill; spray with pam and cook as usual.
PS : you can use this for waffles , but make it a bit thicker--less water.

PS. Note: as of 2011 many feel Celiacs have to be careful of Oats.

In order for these to be gluten free, the oats have to be GF. Oats are heavily cross contaminated with gluten.

You are right lulu--I stated this in the recipe about Bob's gluten free oats.
