Chestnut Cinnamon Gluten Free Pancakes (Dairy Free and Egg Free)

I needed to create a recipe to use up some aging flours. I thought, “Why not a gluten free pancake recipe?” There must be thousands of variation of pancakes, but I chose one I thought was unique, in that it did not contain any eggs or gum. That did not work out very well, therefore I adapted it. The recipe originated from one of Nutsonline’s Gluten Free Pancakes recipes. They were delish and I feel that they are a bit more healthy than a typical recipe. These were delish, and are dairy-free and egg-free! Enjoy!

  • 1 cup chestnut flour
  • 1/2 cup amaranth flour
  • 1/4 cup white rice flour (I used superfine rice flour.)

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon guar gum (or 1/3 teaspoon xanthan gum)
  • 1 1/4 cups dairy-free milk of your choice (I used Homemade Rice Milk Recipe.)
  • 1/4 cup applesauce (or pureed pumpkin or pureed banana)
  • 3 Tablespoons oil (I used grape seed oil.)
  • 2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup, honey or agave syrup


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk thoroughly.
  4. Preheat griddle or frying pan with oil; scoop 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook for 2 1/2 minutes and then turn over. Cook for an additional 2 - 1 1/2 minutes.
