gluten free sunday morning pancakes – we’re on Cloud 9

We love Cloud 9 flour, but up until now, we had to drive over 500 miles to get it! Yesterday, we found it at our local Costco, so we bought three bags and made these amazing pancakes for breakfast!

Sunday Morning GF PancakesMade with Cloud 9 flour, these pancakes are high in fibre and protein and make a great meal Sunday morning or Tuesday night. Make lots ’cause you can freeze them.

What you’ll need:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose GF flour

TIP: We use Cloud 9, but your favorite all purpose GF flour will do. If it does not include xanthan gum, you will need to add 1/2 teaspoon to the batter to keep your pancakes from crumbling.

3 1/2 teaspoons GF baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon white sugar

1 1/2 cups milk

TIP: GF Flours are all different. If the mix appears too thick, add another 1/4 cup of milk.

1 egg

3 tablespoons melted butter

What you’ll do:

Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add milk. egg, and butter and mix until smooth.

Heat griddle to 350°. Pour or scoop batter onto the griddle using about 1/3 cup per pancake.

TIP: This batter is thick. If you want your pancakes to look like the regular glutenous ones, flatten them out with the back of a metal spoon.

Bake 3 minutes per side until golden brown.

Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and hold in a 170° oven while you make the remainder, trying not to overlap them.

TIP: Freeze your leftover pancakes in a freezer bag with parchment in between. These can be removed individually and toasted for a quick workday morning breakfast. Great with peanut butter! Or you can wrap them in tinfoil and plump them up in a 350° oven for 5 – 10 minutes. Thawing in the microwave is not recommended.

  5. I was at Costco the other day so I picked up some Cloud 9. Eek the calories lol! It’s also heavier than I’m used to so I have to learn adjustments. I think it’ll be great mixed with other flours, though it does require more fat, rather than applesauce, to gain a great texture. The price at Costco is great for the amount. Gluten-free is a whole new learning curve lol.


    • Gluten free is definitely a learning curve! I’ve talked to the person who developed Cloud 9 flour and she developed it to be a 1 to 1 replacement for wheat flour. For most things, it works quite well – especially items like cookies or heavier cakes. Pie crusts made with it are good too, although the buckwheat specks look a little strange. For a lighter item like a chiffon I’d make my own blend or you could try cutting the Cloud 9 with some corn starch. I’ve never done a lot of cooking with applesauce but I’m always open to ways to cut calories and fat! Let me know how it goes!

  9. Thank you for checking out my blog! I really love the look and feel of your blog, and I can’t wait to try some of your recipes. These pancakes will be the first! I don’t think we have Cloud 9 flour in the states. My Costco definitely doesn’t have it!
