I've been gluten free for just over 2 years. I used to very much miss gluten baking, until I finally made the most perfect GF flour mix. It took a lot of experimenting to get it just right.

The recipe for the flour:
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1 cup white rice flour
1 cup arrowroot flour
1 tsp xanthan gum

It's easiest to stick these ingredients in a ziplock bag and mix mix mix by shaking it around.  i keep this mix in the freezer, because the coconut flour keeps best in there.

On to the pancakes!
 
Now, I didn't *exactly* measure.... Because I'm really bad for just winging it.  Here's the list of ingredients anyway Cheesy

2 over ripe bananas - smashed
2 eggs
1 big tbsp of peanut butter
1 tsp gluten free baking powder
The above GF flour mix
Milk

(see... I just kinda added the flour and milk until I got the consistency I wanted.... given the amount of flour in my bag before and after, I'd say it was about 1 cup of flour, and enough milk to make it the right consistency.  Undecided any who....)
I will say that the consistency is thicker then your average gluten full pancake batter, it does not run, and you have to spread it a bit in the pan.  And a picture is worth a thousand words, so I took some I'll share with you.

When it first hit the pan.  Notice that the little blob of batter on top doesn't sink into the pancake. It's that thick.


Right before I flipped.  Note that there really aren't bubbles, as you would normally see in a pancake.  Again, the thickness of this batter plays a big role in that. ( i know they look really similar, but I promise, these two pics were taken about 3 minutes apart)


Right after I flipped.  wonderful!  This one's a bit darker then you'd find a normal pancake, as you need to cook GF flour a bit longer then normal. You can adjust your stove temp accordingly, so you don't burn the outside, and have an undercooked middle.


And the crumb.  Spongy, yummy, and I was told it does have a very close consistency to a gluten full pancake!



I've used this flour to replace wheat flour 1 to 1 in cakes and muffins and cookies as well, and they turned out really well!  Some gluten eaters couldn't tell the difference between the two cakes I made for a birthday party. So I'd say this flour mix is a keeper!

Thanks for looking!

Those actually look just like "real" pancakes!!  I've made pancakes with just the coconut flour and they look...different.  But they don't mess with my blood sugar.. Have you ever made the base flour mix in large batches?  Do you think it would freeze well?

Now I want pancakes Grin

These look wonderful! I will have to give your flour recipe a go, as my 16yo daughter was just diagnosed with a gluten intolerance. Thank you!!

You're welcome!  And extend my welcome to the gluten free club to your daughter.  It's a tricky thing to navigate, but there's a whole lot of support out there for it now.  Enjoy the pancakes!!
