Using pancake mix, these gluten free pumpkin pancakes aren’t just amazing, they’re also quick and easy! Get the recipe to make them.
I don’t know why it is but pancakes make me so happy. Being gluten free I went ages without them and I really missed them like crazy. Then one day, years into this whole GF nonsense, I got a box of gluten free pancake mix from the store that was decent. These pancakes were eaten rather than being mostly tossed in the trash and I was really pleased.
In general, everybody who has been gluten free for a time (I’ve lost track but I think I’m at 8 years?) has seen the evolution of GF options at the grocery store get better and better. Back in the day, I’d mix up my own flour blends with different starches that I could only find at the Asian Grocery Store. Or sometimes I’d go even further by blanching, peeling and then grinding almonds into my own almond flour in a coffee bean grinder. What a pain in the rear! Most often I would just forgo the baked goods and carb-o-licious breakfast foods to avoid the trouble.
But these days the modern Celiac has so many options when they cruise through the grocery store. I have not just 1, but three different boxed gluten free mixes that I just LOVE for pancakes. And this time last year I was eating gluten free pancakes in a diner on South Padre Island gluten free pancakes in a diner on South Padre Island. Pancakes. In a restaurant. That didn’t make me react. Amazing, right? It turns out, that diner also uses a mix for pancakes and I tell you you wouldn’t know the darn difference! So today, we’re also making some box mix pancakes but we’re making them better. We’re making them PUMPKIN!
