A major fan of buttermilk pancakes, I loved the quick and easy single serving package from Pamela’s Products. I also love the fact Pamela’s Products support research for autism and celiac disease.

Here are a few tips for using the Pamela’s Gluten-Free Baking and Pancake single serving package to whip up the best ever buttermilk pancakes:
No. 1: Tip for making gluten-free pancakes using Pamela’s Gluten-Free Baking and Pancake Mix: Stir one packet with 1 large egg, 1/2 cup water and 2 tsp oil according to package directions OR replace the 1/2 cup water with buttermilk for a rich taste. I also added a handful of fresh blueberries for the best blueberry pancakes.
No. 2: Tip for making gluten-free pancakes using Pamela’s Gluten-Free Baking and Pancake Mix: Don’t over-mix. One of the secrets to making the best pancakes is to gently stir but leave the batter a little bit lumpy (but not too lumpy).
No. 3: Tip for making gluten-free pancakes using Pamela’s Gluten-Free Baking and Pancake Mix: Pour batter into a pre-heated griddle that has been lightly sprayed with non-stick spray or with vegetable or olive oil. Use medium low heat or 350 degrees.
No. 4: Tip for making gluten-free pancakes using Pamela’s Gluten-Free Baking and Pancake Mix: Wait until you see bubbles appearing on the raw batter side before flipping. It takes about 2 or 3 minutes. If you don’t see little bubbles breaking evenly throughout the pancake, it’s not ready to flip. Sometimes it takes practice but pay attention to the clock!
No. 5: Tip for making gluten-free recipes such as pancakes using Pamela’s Gluten-Free Baking and Pancake Mix: Top the blueberry or plain pancakes with real maple syrup which has a lot of health benefits. Don’t ruin healthy gluten-free, wheat-free pancakes with artificial syrups with high fructose corn syrup.
If you are worried about calories, take note the Pamela’s Gluten-Free Baking and Pancake Mix has 380 calories, 9 grams of fat, 10 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber and 9 grams of sugar. However, I found my blueberry pancakes fed two people – not one. So you can figure your calories according to how many you eat.
Ingredients in the Pamela’s Gluten-Free Baking and Pancake Mix include brown rice flour, cultured buttermilk and natural almond meal. You don’t have to have celiac disease or celiac sprue in order to enjoy Pamela’s Products. A lot of people are losing weight by going gluten-free. More doctors are recommending a gluten-free diet for people with autism.
Others suspect they may have gluten intolerance or simply like the way they feel by being a gluten-free girl. Whatever your reason, the Pamela’s Gluten-Free Baking and Pancake Mix can help you make pancakes as well as other baked goods such as muffins!
