Kinnikinnick Gluten Free Pancake and Waffle Mix

I have eaten a LOT of really bad gluten free pancakes. I’ve tried a few different mixes and a couple of recipes, all ending in disaster.

I recently decided to give gluten free pancakes one final shot. I’ve had mostly good experiences with Kinnikinnick products so I tossed their gluten free pancake and waffle mix into my cart at Sprouts.

This mix is so easy. One cup of mix, 3/4 cup milk (or water), 1 egg, and 1 tablespoon of oil makes 4-5 regular size pancakes.

IMG_2166 I prefer to try to make my pancakes as big as possible. Preferably plate-size like the ones at IHOP.

Ooooooh, delicious little bubbles! Almost ready to flip..

Perfectly golden brown and I guarantee no one will notice they are gluten free. Visually, they are exactly the same as regular pancakes. The cook the same, and even the texture looks the same.

But how do they taste?

Oh. My. Gosh. They are divine!

The gluten free pancakes I’ve tried before were hard and rubbery. And they tasted weird. It was like someone put syrup on a hockey puck and put it on the plate in front of me. But not these Kinnikinnick pancakes. They are light, fluffy, and airy. Not at all dense and no funky taste! They are only lightly sweet, except of course, when I drown them in syrup. In short, they are the perfect (gluten free) pancakes.

They are exactly how I remember pancakes to be. Victory!

Have you had Pamela's Pancake and Baking Mix? I haven't had Kinnikinnik's, but I'm picky and don't like Bob's Red Mill mix or Trader Joe's... and everyone I've made Pamela's for (even those who eat gluten) love them. If you haven't tried them, you might want to. :)

I haven't tried Kinnikinnick. I'll have to try it sometime. I like Pamela's a lot. Arrowhead Mills is good. I also have Bob's Red Mill & Namaste but haven't tried them yet.

Thanks for posting this. I had put my pancake mix in a air tight container and threw out the instructions.

Everyone likes these pancakes, so much lighter than Betty Crocker!
