WHOLE GRAIN GLUTEN FREE FLOURS

  1. Sorghum Flour

Sorghum Flour (aka Jowar Flour) is unrelated to wheat and totally gluten free! It has a mild taste & smooth texture making it an excellent flour for breads. Sorghum flour originated in Africa and is still used in Indian & African cooking such as Jowar Roti (flat breads made with Sorghum Flour). I buy my Sorghum Flour at Blush Lane Organics in Calgary, but you can also find it at most grocery stores in the organic/natural foods aisle.

Jowar Flour can be found at Indian Grocery stores.

SUBSTITUTES: If you can’t consume sorghum, you may substitute 1:1 with:

  • Buckwheat Flour
  • Oat Flour
  • Amaranth
  • Teff Flour
  1. Brown Rice Flour

Brown Rice Flour is made by finely grinding short grain brown rice. I like Bob’s Red Mill Brown Rice Flour as it is stone ground to a very fine texture. It lends a nice light fluffiness and slightly nutty flavour to the pancake. You can also find Bob’s Red Mill Brown Rice Flour at most grocery stores in the organic/natural foods aisle. To make this flour superfine, I simply blend it in my high speed blender. It does the trick!

SUBSTITUTES: If you can’t consume rice, you may substitute 1:1 with:

  • Sorghum Flour
  • Buckwheat Flour
  • Millet Flour (will give a nutty flavour)
  • Cassava Flour

STARCHY GLUTEN FREE FLOURS

  1. Sweet Rice Flour

Sweet Rice Flour is not the same thing as White Rice Flour. The only similarity they have is that they are both made from rice, albeit totally different types of rice. You can NOT substitute, as sadly they are not interchangeable.

Sweet Rice Flour is made from glutinous (sticky glue like texture- not made from gluten!) rice & white rice is made from long and short grain white rice.

Some even call it an indispensable ingredient in your gluten free kitchen! I couldn’t agree more!

What makes it so great?

Sweet Rice Flour mimics gluten in gluten breads by giving the dough it’s stretchy, pliable properties. Sweet rice flour is readily found in Asian supermarkets, it can be labelled ‘glutinous rice flour’ or ‘mochiko flour’. But be sure to check the label as they are not always certified gluten-free. I prefer to use flours like Bob’s Red Mill Sweet Rice Flour which you can find at many local grocery stores & organic markets like Blush Lane Organic Market here in Calgary where you can find my favourite brand by Blush Lane Organics.

SUBSTITUTES: If you can’t consume rice, you may substitute 1:1 with any other starchy flour:

  • Arrowroot Powder
  • Tapioca Flour
  • Potato Starch (not the same as Potato Flour)
  1. Tapioca Flour (aka Tapioca Starch)

Like other starches, Tapioca Flour (aka Tapioca starch) is a very fine white powder that comes from the pulp of the cassava plant. It is not the same thing as cassava flour however, which is made from the entire root of the cassava plant. It is used to help create the chewy texture and crispy crust in our Momma’s Marvellous Montreal Style Bagels. You can find Tapioca Flour at most grocery stores in the organic/natural foods aisle.

SUBSTITUTES: If you can’t consume tapioca, you may substitute 1:1 with any other starchy flour:

  • Arrowroot Powder
  • Sweet Rice Flour
  • Potato Starch (not the same as Potato Flour)

BINDERS

  1. Psyllium Husk
Added as a BINDER for the Pancake Mix

Psyllium is a form of soluble fiber from a plant called Plantago Ovata, that grows worldwide but is most common in India. The plant produces gel-coated seeds, from which psyllium husk is derived.

Health benefits

Psyllium is one of the main ingredients in Metamucil! So needless to say it is incredibly good for the intestinal tract and in fact it enhances the digestive process & has prebiotic effects. Psyllium husk is very rich in fibre and can help improve & prevent constipation and haemorrhoid pain. Research is even showing it can help manage diabetes and may even lower risk of developing diabetes! On top of all of that psyllium husk is heart healthy, may help decrease blood pressure, decrease cholesterol & can help with weight management. Psyllium contains antibacterial compounds that help eliminate toxins in the body & in turn give you healthy glowing skin! Amazing right?

You can find psyllium husk at most grocers and health stores (e.g. Blush Lane Organics).

Please see my post What are BINDING AGENTS and How to USE them. for more details on this incredible binder and options for substitutions!

  1. Chia Seeds (whole)

Chia seeds are an easy way to make any meal healthier. I love chia for its many health benefits. Chia seeds are an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, and powerful antioxidants which provide numerous health benefits. 2 Tbsp of chia seeds contain 39% of your recommended daily fibre & 3.5g of Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Studies show that fibre has a positive impact not only on digestive health, but also improved blood sugar levels, weight management and more! The best part is the ground chia seeds go completely undetected in most recipes.

You can find Chia Seeds at Blush Lane Organics & Community Natural Foods (here in Calgary), Superstore (Loblaws) and other grocery stores.

LEAVENING & FLAVOUR AGENTS

  1. Salt

I like to use kosher salt to give flavour & strength to the mix!

  1. Baking Soda

Baking soda is a natural leavening agent and is used to help give the pancakes a lovely rise.

  1. Baking Powder

Baking powder is another natural leavening agent used to create a fluffy lightness to the pancake!

WET INGREDIENTS IN GLUTEN FREE PANCAKES

  1. Gluten Free Sourdough Starter

You can use any Gluten Free Sourdough Starter for this recipe. It can be either discard or active (recently fed or replenished) starter!

If you are looking to make a gluten free sourdough starter I’ve got you covered! Please check out my easy to follow video guide that will walk you through all you need to know to get started today!

  1. Milk (or alternative of choice)

I use 3% Dairy milk but any plant based milk is equally as delicious!

  1. Butter (or plant based alternate)

I use butter made from the milk from grass fed cows, but any plant based alternate is equally as delicious!

  1. Maple Syrup

I love using pure Canadian Maple Syrup in my pancakes, however, you can also use honey or agave syrup as a substitute.

HOW TO MAKE GLUTEN FREE PANCAKE MIX

IN 3 QUICK & EASY STEPS

* Please see my post How to make Gluten Free Pancake Mix for the quick & easy directions.

HOW TO MAKE FLUFFY & DELICIOUS GLUTEN FREE SOURDOUGH PANCAKES

  1. In a large pot, warm the milk, butter & maple syrup until the butter is fully melted. Make sure it is just slightly warm & not hot! If to hot it will kill the active yeast culture in your sourdough starter which will prevent your pancakes from rising!
  2. Add Sourdough Starter & mix well.
  3. Add 200g of Gluten Free Pancake Mix & whisk well to create a smooth batter.
  4. Next, heat your griddle nice and hot (375°F) but not too hot or it will burn your pancakes!
  5. Let batter rest for 5′ to thicken. Add a little more milk if too thick after resting. NOTE: Don’t stir your batter any further or you will lose all of the lovely bubbles! This is what makes your pancakes fluffy!
  6. Lightly oil griddle if needed (I don’t need to with mine) and scoop out about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of batter per pancake. Cook until 1st side shows bubbles on top and edges are slightly dry, then flip and cook for about 1-2 mins until done.

Enjoy these fluffy, delicious gluten free pancakes hot! I always serve with a blueberry compote and greek yogurt. YUM! Enjoy!

HOW TO STORE, FREEZE & REHEAT GLUTEN FREE PANCAKES

Fantastic Lunch: My children LOVE these pancakes as a treat lunch for school. Simply wait until the cooked pancakes are cooled, then store in an airtight container for up to 3 days. My kiddos eat them cool with a drizzle of maple syrup & fresh fruit.

Reheat: simply warm up on a frying pan, griddle or in the microwave until warmed.

Freeze: Once cooked pancakes are cooled, store in an airtight container & freeze for up to a month.

Thaw: simply take out of the freezer & reheat or let pancakes come to room temperature on the counter then reheat.
