    Pancakes (Gluten-Free)

    Scott Adams
    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    1 ¼ cups rice flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon soda
    ½ teaspoon salt
    1 ¼ cup buttermilk or sour cream (I use liquid--not made from powder--buttermilk)
    2 eggs
    ¼ cup vegetable oil

    Add the vegetable oil to buttermilk. In large bowl, mix together all dry ingredients. Add the buttermilk/oil mixture and eggs. Mix and cook on hot griddle.

    These are the greatest pancakes I've had, (including wheat ones). They're light, very delicate. I would suggest making four or five small pancakes as opposed to three or even one huge one. Ideally the pancakes should be about the size of the spatula that turns them. Non-celiacs that have tried them want the recipe!

    These pancakes are great! I have been making them for a few years now since I found the recipe. One tip I have to offer is you can also use yogurt instead of sour cream. and you can use flavored yogurt like strawberry, peach, pina colada, etc. to change the flavor of your pancakes. My kids love to pick out different flavors for theirs.

    They were very fragile and kind of powdery and dry. The taste was ok but I added a bit of maple syrup to sweeten it and that made it a lot better. I think if I made these again I would use a gluten-free flour mix or even add a couple of my own different flours, as the rice flour doesn't give these pancakes a very desirable texture on its own. One more thing I'd like to add is that your skill at making pancakes has a lot to do with whether the recipe turns out or not. I'm a beginner and my first couple from this batch were terrible ... but luckily near they end they started to work out better.

    I use Trader Joe's Gluten free flour and kefir instead of buttermilk. They are amazing! Just don't stir too much after mixing, the bubbles escape the batter and they turn out very flat, but still tasty.

In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014.

    This recipe comes to us from Sue DeVries.
    Use the same recipe as for Snickers Cookies except you will need 8 dozen small gluten-free peanut butter cups.
    Roll dough in 1 balls. Place in mini muffin pans. Bake at 375 for 6-7 minutes or until they are a light golden color. While the tarts are baking unwrap the candies. Press candies into the tarts as soon as they are removed from the oven. Let the finished tarts cool in the pans about 15 minutes before removing. The candy gets very soft and the tarts may fall apart if you try to take them out too soon. Slide a
    knife in beside the tarts to remove from the pan.
    Note: When I bake...
