Amazingly Fluffy Gluten-Free Pancakes

Pancaaaaakes. How have I not posted a pancake recipe yet? Considering I have pancakes at least three times a week, I actually have no idea. These brown up perfectly, while staying fluffy on the inside. The recipe was adapted from Lindsay's over at Pinch of Yum.

I actually made these on a weekday morning. Thursday morning. I should have been at school, right? Well, my last couple of days had been crazy, and I just needed to catch up on sleep. I slept till nine and boooyyyy, it felt good. And then I got to wake up and feed myself these pancakes, which I made in my pajamas. If only I could start every morning like that....

I filled these pancakes with shredded apples because it's fall and just makes them so much more delicious. The apples are perfectly in season right now and they're huge. Yes, huge organic apples, like, as big as my face. Seriously. And guys, see, look at the picture! I didn't even need syrup! Yes, they are that good. Don't believe me? Make them for yourself. 

Going, going.....


Recipe adapted from Lindsay's on Pinch of Yum:
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ cups buttermilk (substitute ¾ cup milk + 2 tsp. white vinegar)
  • scant 1 cup oat flour (I ground 1 cup oat flour in my Vitamix. You can also use a food processor.)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 apple, shredded
  • Whisk the brown sugar into the egg. When the mixture is smooth, add the oil, vanilla, and buttermilk and whisk for 15 seconds.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, and salt to the bowl and stir until just combined. Add the water and do a test pour of your batter. It should run off smoothly and not have too many bubbles or a “puffy” look. If it looks too thick and puffy, thin it out a little by adding water, one tablespoon at a time, until you get the right consistency.
  • Pour ⅓ cup batter into a nonstick skillet over medium low heat. When the edges look dry and the top has bubbles, use a spatula to flip the pancakes. Let them cook for another minute or two, until golden brown on both sides. Remove from heat and serve!
