These turned out awesome! I've made some good pancakes before, and I've made some good muffins before, but these were definitely something to be proud of.
What a great time saver too. A few minutes prep time, just 15 minutes in the oven, and it made 12 large pancake muffins. That's quicker than I could have fried 12 pancakes on the griddle.
Who couldn't use extra time in the morning?
I used my favorite gluten-free oat flour that I grind myself out of Bob's Red Mill gluten-free rolled oats but this recipe will work with pre packaged gluten-free oat flour or if you can't tolerate oats at all, use sweet white sorghum flour instead.
You'll notice in the picture that some of them have chips on top. That's the beauty of making these. You can customize them for each member of the family with add in treats or toppings. I like peanut butter on my pancakes, so I made half with peanut butter chips for me, and half plain for Shawn.
- 1 cup certified gluten-free oat flour
- 2/3 cup brown rice flour
- 1/3 cup tapioca flour
- 1/3 cup cornstarch (or arrowroot flour)
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk (or milk with 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar)
- 4 ounces of seltzer
Whisk the dry ingredients thoroughly together in a large bowl.
Whisk the eggs in a small bowl, then add the buttermilk and the seltzer to the eggs.
Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir together by hand just enough to incorporate everything leaving no clumps of dry.
Spray a muffin pan with a gluten-free nonstick spray of your choice. Divide the mix evenly into the 12 muffin cups. Customize as desired with additions and toppings. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and let the pan sit while it is heating up.
Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. These domed up nice and when I tested the centers with a toothpick they were perfectly done at 15 minutes.
Remove from the pan and cool just ever so slightly on a wire rack.
Serve warm as part of a complete breakfast with your favorite toppings of syrup, butter, etc.
These are good on-the-go also.
