Keep It FODMAP Friendly

These light and fluffy low FODMAP pancakes are ridiculously easy and they taste spectacular. Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe low FODMAP.

First, if you’re in the elimination phase, you need to use gluten-free flour. For my Canadian peeps, I like using PC’s gluten-free all-purpose flour because I can use it cup for cup and it doesn’t contain any added gums.

Remember, unless you have celiac disease, you’re avoiding the FODMAP fructan in wheat, not the gluten itself.

Next up is milk. If you’re in the elimination phase, you’ll need to use a lactose-free product. Any fat percentage is fine, so use whatever you have on hand.

This recipe also uses butter. According to the Monash app, butter doesn’t have any FODMAPs (because it’s all fat). This means you don’t need to use a lactose-free butter.

What You Need
  • 1.5 cups gluten-free flour
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1.75 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.5 cups lactose-free milk
  • 3 tbsp butter (melted)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
What You Do
  1. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.

  2. In a second bowl, mix together milk, butter, eggs, and vanilla. 

  3. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix as quickly as possible. Don't worry about getting out every lump. Focus on making sure the mixture is evenly moist. If you're planning on keeping your batter overnight, wrap it up now and stick it in the fridge. 

  4. Heat up your griddle (or frying pan) and add a small amount of butter to grease your cooking surface. Starting with a test pancake, pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle and allow it to cook until the edges become firm and the bubbles in the center of the pancake start to pop (2-3 minutes). Then flip your pancake and cook until the second side has browned (1-1.5 minutes). Adjust your batter as necessary (more flour if the batter too runny or more milk if it's too thick) and make the rest of your pancakes in small batches. Serve warm!

    Just made these for the kids and I.. Really yummy, the kids had no idea they were gluten free! I was worried about the small lumps in the batter and it looked a little runny, but the cooked perfectly!

    Thank you 🙂

      Hi Haley!

      I’m so glad you and your kids enjoyed this recipe! You’re right, it’s pretty hard to tell they’re gluten-free if you don’t know. Glad I could help!

    I just started the low FODMAP diet for microscopic colitis. I was afraid I would not be able to eat pancakes with my family on Sunday mornings. I made these and they were absolutely delicious! Thank you.

    Please share some brands of gf flour available in the US that you find low FODMAP and without gums. I have never seen PC’s flour here. Thank you?
