This was an awesome base for a gluten free and dairy free recipe. Didn't have rice so used buckwheat. Substituted almond milk. Also added cinnamon ginger and nutmeg to taste as well as one egg. Next time will add baked apple chunks. Excited to play around with this recipe. Read More

hmmm.. well this recipe didn't go over very well with my family. But since so many other people did like it I thought I could help with the bland taste. I added vanilla and cinnamon to it since it had rice it tasted very good just not what we were were looking for. Good luck. Read More

I just made this recipe for the first time and it turned out pretty well. We are new to gluten-free and I was craving a baked good of some sort. This definitely helped my craving! I substituted almond milk in place of cows and agave for the sugar. I added a pinch of salt cinnamon and vanilla. The texture is still very different from regular pancakes but I was able to get used to it after a couple of bites. Thanks for the recipe. Update: When I made this the second time I mixed the ingredients slightly different and the outcome was a very fluffy pancake! I used the same substitutions as stated above but made these changes: heated my skillet first mixed dry and wet ingredients separately then added the wet ingredients on top of the dry only mixed about 10 times with a whisk til it was just barely combined then immediately scooped onto my skillet. This texture was more like regular pancakes than when I tried to mix it with the electric mixer. Read More

I can't wait for my 16 month old to try these. I made the recipe to a t. I just ate one without butter or syrup and loved the flavor and texture. I didn't notice the grainy texture that I sometimes get with rice flour recipes. I made the recipe into "cookie size" rounds and I think these are going to be our little girl's version of a cookie when she can't eat what we are having. Great recipe! What a relief to have something for our gluten and egg free kiddo. Read More

I am sorry but just did not work out for me. The batter was a lot and it thickened up substantially. Read More

They were pretty awesome. I didn't have rice flour so I used normal flour and they turned out great. Kind of bland though so I experimented with lots of random spices. Cajun or oregano were the best oddly enough. I made small ones which made great appetizers. Lots of fun thanks! Read More
