Egg-Free, Gluten-Free Brown Rice Pancakes

These brown rice pancakes are egg-free, gluten-free, enriched with flax seeds and most satisfying. The batter works great for waffles too.

Simply top them with your favorite syrup and fruit, and enjoy with glass milk.

Brown Rice Pancakes Recipe

Makes 6

¾ cup milk
½ cup plain yogurt
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon agave syrup

1 cup brown rice flour
1/3 cup golden flaxseed meal
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon butter, divided into 6

Whisk together the milk, yogurt, vanilla extract and agave syrup.

Combine the flour with ground flax seeds, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Add them to the milk-yogurt mixture and whisk well.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Melt 1/6 of the butter on the skillet and ladle batter onto it, spreading it slightly by twirling the pan. Cook a few minutes per side. When the edges look stiff and slightly browned, it is time to turn over the pancake. Repeat until you’re used all the batter.

    We love brown rice, but I'm not familiar with brown rice flour. Your pancakes sound so healthy and look absolutely scrumptious.

    Oh, my gosh. These look wonderful. I can't believe they are gluten free. I can't wait to give them a try. I've got a bottle of Minnesota vanilla-infused 100% natural maple syrup in my refrigerator. Perfect for these pancakes.

    I am amazed at the texture you were able to create with only these two flours.

    Absolutely delicious! They really didn't need syrup, they had a wonderful flavor of their own! Yum! And thank you for sharing I'll be making these again very soon!
