Gluten-free Gut-friendly Tigernut Pancakes



A trusted gluten-free pancake recipe I go to time and time again. Guaranteed satisfaction as they are fluffy, healthy and full of flavour. 

What can I serve these tigernut pancakes with?

There are countless combinations that work great with this recipe - lemon and sugar, maple syrup and butter, chocolate spread, peanut butter, jam, whipped cream and berries, all fabulous choices; but in my home, Greek honey and cinnamon is always a winner.


6 Pancakes


15 Minutes


30 Minutes



  • 100g gluten-free self-raising white flour (I use Doves Farm or Bob's Red Mill + 1 tsp bicarbonate soda)

  • 35g tigernut flour (sub almond flour or do the full 135g gluten-free self-raising white flour)

  • ½ tsp fine sea salt

  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup, coconut blossom sugar or honey


  • 130ml full fat milk (or plant milk)

  • 1 large egg 

  • 2 Tbsp butter (or coconut oil), melted 

  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste / powder/ essence


  1. In a big bowl, combine the dry ingredients and wisk to mix well.

  2. In another bowl add the milk and egg and whisk together.

  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and wisk well. It shoud be quite a thick smooth batter and there shouldn't be any lumps. 

  4. Then slowly pour in the warm melted butter (or coconut oil) and combine.

  5. Set your non stick pan on medium - high heat and test with a small spoonful of batter if the pan temperature is right.

  6. Use a ladel to pour the batter in quickly and in a circuar motion spread it out.

  7. You will know when it's ready when the air bubble start to show and the base is light golden colour, ready to flip over.

  8. Dish up - top up and enjoy!

  • Many of my recipes call for Greek products like Greek extra virgin olive oil, Greek honey or Greek oregano. It is not mandatory for it to be Greek in order to make the recipe, you are more than welcome to use a good quality alternative; just keep in mind if you are after the authentic flavours of Greece these details do make all the difference in Greek cuisine.
