How to Make Dietary-Restriction Friendly Pancakes

Pancakes. Hotcakes. Griddlecakes. Flapjacks. No matter what you call them, they are a great meal anytime of day (who doesn’t like breakfast for dinner?). Pancakes also contain problem ingredients for many with stomach issues and dietary restrictions. Luckily, there are alternate options that are delicious.

We came across King Arthur Flour at our local Food Lion. The brand has Easy to Prepare Gluten Free Pancake Mix. The company was founded in 1790 when Henry Wood began importing flour from England and sold it under the name Henry Wood & Company. According to their website, it was the first flour company in the US. In the 1820s, the company began milling flour using American-grown wheat. Roughly 75 years later, the company changed its name to King Arthur Flour. If you have time, take a few minutes to read a timeline of the company’s history, including why they became employee-owned in 2004 and how they’re involved in the community.

King Arthur Flour offers a variety of products, including gluten-free products. They are Certified Gluten-Free, Non GMO Project Verified, kosher, and contain no preservatives. The gluten-free pancake mix is also soy-free. To make the pancakes dairy-free, use oil along with almond, rice, or soy milk.

  1. This is really great to know! I don’t have gluten allergies, but I have friends who do, so this is something really useful to keep in mind if I ever cook breakfast for them!

    • They were really yummy! My mom & I aren’t gluten-free, but my sister is & we loved them as much as she did. That many not be a bad idea. My sister had to go gluten-,soy-, & dairy-free per her doctor to help manage her IBS. Hopefully you’ll get to the bottom of it soon!

  2. We’re very fortunate not to suffer from any allergies in our house, but I do have a very dear friend who’s just found out she’s gluten intolerant and she’s always loved her pancakes. I’ll be sharing the recipe with her, I’m sure it will make her happy to know her pancake eating days aren’t over

  3. It’s great to know that there’s so many dietary option to choose from these days. I’m not allergic to gluten but I like to try some new things especially it’s pancake related. These pancakes looks so good!

  4. These look delicious. I use another gluten-free brand, but am always looking to try something new! I’ve never made chocolate chip pancakes, looks easy enough! Thanks for the idea.

  5. Glad to know that there is a brand for gluten-free pan cake available in the market! Thanks for sharing your recipe with us! I’ve many vegan friends and I’ll share your post with them!

  6. Wow they look so easy to make and I like the idea to add a little something to make them unique…I would definitely add strawberries and bananas….I am wondering if I can make them with no eggs?!?
