Simple Mills Pancake Mix Copycat Recipe

When I was at my daughter’s house babysitting recently, she purchased some Simple Mills Gluten Free Pancake Mix. I thought I’d give it a try and was bowled over with how delicious they turned out. If you know me, I just had to create a recipe for everyone to make them at home to save money; and that I did! They turned out just as delicious too! This mix may be used to meet other baking needs besides pancakes. Try using it in recipes usually calling for Bisquick.

Milk & Flavoring Choices

When I was at my daughter’s house, I used So Delicious Vanilla Almond Milk to make them, but you can use water, or other gluten free milk and add vanilla or even banana or almond extract if desired.

Egg-Free & Vegan Option

While the box instructions do not explain how to make this recipe egg-free, I do. See the substitution suggestions below:

2 tablespoons liquid from a can of cannellini beans + 1 tablespoon butter or dairy-free margarine = 1 egg.

This recipe is available to everyone.

  1. Thank you so much for this recipe! The simple mills are the only pancakes my son will eat! I’ve tried making my own pancake recipes and he won’t eat them. Can’t wait to try this!

  2. I’ve been looking for a copycat recipe for a long time (have made some halfway decent ones myself) and I’m sad to say I really didn’t feel like these compared to simple mills. Sorry ?
