What kind of tofu should I use for gluten free pancakes?

Use silken tofu for this recipe. It’s typically sold in 16-ounce packages in the refrigerated section of grocery stores.

Can I make these gluten free pancakes without tofu?

No. I don’t recommend it – tofu is the base of this pancake recipe and acts as an egg replacer.

What kind of gluten free flour should I use for pancakes?

Use your favorite kind of 1:1 gluten free flour replacement, like Cup4Cup, Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Gluten Free Baking Flour, or King Arthur Flour Gluten Free Measure for Measure Flour.

Can I make gluten free pancakes without a blender?

You do need to use something to puree the ingredients. A large food processor is a great alternative to a blender – pulse the ingredients until smooth. If you don’t have a blender or food processor, try this recipe for chocolate chip pancakes (omit the chocolate chips if desired) with 1:1 gluten free flour instead of the all-purpose flour.

Are these gluten free pancakes also vegan?

Yes, this pancake recipe is naturally vegan and gluten free.

How will I know when my pancakes are ready to flip?

When the pancake edges begin to bubble, about 1-2 minutes after pouring the batter into the pan, it’s time to flip the pancakes.
