Fluffy Breakfast Pancakes (Gluten & Dairy Free)


These yummy cakes are not paleo, nor are they vegan, but they are DEFINITELY a family favorite. Mama has been perfecting this original recipe for years, and just this year we’ve decided to try them in a gluten free, dairy free form. These guys are the sort of thing you’d crave around the holidays or when you’ve got a large group of people, because you can easily double the recipe. We made them gluten free and dairy free so that they’re a little easier on the stomach. They do have added sugars. It is possible to substitute with maple sugar, but the texture won’t be as ‘IHOP like’ šŸ˜‰ I hope you enjoy!



  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened cashew milk
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp sugar (or maple syrup)
  • 1 3/4 cups gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Heat a lightly oiled nonstickĀ pan over medium high heat (about 325Āŗ).
  • Start by combining theĀ liquids in a large bowl.
  • When liquids are combined, add the dry ingredients and stir until just combined (lumps can still remain), don’t over mix.
  • Scoop 1/4 cup of the batter and pour into the pan.
  • Wait for bubbles to form, check the bottom, and flip when lightly brown

*For the blueberry topping, we felt it was best to heat up frozen blueberries in a microwave safe bowl for a few seconds before topping off the pancakes. The second batch had chocolate chips added into the batterĀ and was topped with fresh strawberries inĀ a dairy free whipped topping.
