Happy National Pancake day! Today IHOP is giving away a free stack of pancakses. But if you'd prefer to celebrate at home, here's our favorite pancake recipe that's even gluten free!

Here's what you'll need:


2 cups sifted gluten free all purpose flour (recommend rice based blend)

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons brown sugar

2 eggs, slightly beaten

2 cups buttermilk

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


1. Sift flour, and measure out 2 cups of sifted flour and place in a large bowl.

2. Whisk baking soda, salt and brown sugar into flour.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, coconut oil and vanilla extract.

4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir just until combined.

5. Ladle ¼ cup of batter per pancake onto hot lightly greased griddle.

6. Cook pancake until it bubbles on one side, and flip.

7. Cook until browned on other side.

** To freeze leftover pancakes, line baking sheet with parchment paper and place on sheet individually and place in freezer until slightly frozen and transfer to freeze safe ziploc bag.
