If there was one universally loved food, it just might have to be the pancake.
Light and fluffy, topped with warm maple syrup, fresh berries, confectioner’s sugar … however you top ‘em, everybody loves pancakes. The problem is that folks wish they could make gluten-free pancakes turn out like the ones they were used to — true flapjack griddle cakes that fill your belly and start your day off right. The solution is that now, anyone can!
I’m so excited to bring you the solution and my newest mix: Jules Pancake and Waffle Mix. Each bag contains two pre-measured packets of gluten and dairy-free mix, so you can make awesome pancakes in your pjs, bleary-eyed and half asleep! Just dump the mix in a bowl with eggs, oil and the milk of your choice, stir and go! (✱Here’s my homemade pancake recipe if you have my Jules flour on hand and don’t have my mix!)
Crafting this mix to be your no-fail, grab-&-go, family-approved, house-guest-tested gluten- and dairy-free breakfast solution was no easy feat! But that’s part of the reason I’m so excited to bring this mix to you! You’ll taste the love that went into this mix when your family begs for more and praises your morning meal moxie! No more suffering through less-than-stellar frozen gluten-free pancakes and waffles, or settling for mediocre gluten-free breakfast substitutes. Seriously awesome gluten-free pancakes and waffles are finally within reach!

Quick, Easy and FUN Homemade Gluten-Free Pancakes
- 1 packet Jules Gluten Free™ Pancake Mix (each bag contains 2 packets)
- 2 eggs (or egg substitute)
- 3 Tbs. vegetable oil of choice
- 1 1/2 (+/-) cups milk (dairy or non-dairy)
- berries, chocolate chips, chopped nuts, etc., if desired
- food coloring (optional) – for natural food colorings, try Seelect or India Tree
In a medium bowl, combine all the liquid ingredients, using only 1 1/4 cups of milk at first. Gradually whisk in the packet of Jules Gluten Free™ Pancake Mix until well integrated and only a few lumps remain. Add more milk as needed to thin the batter to the point that it is easily spooned onto the skillet, but is not watery at all. You should be able to put a dollop of batter onto the pan and spread the batter out with the back of a spoon to form a circle without the batter being too thick or too runny.
If not using a non-stick pan, pour enough oil into a large skillet or griddle to have a thin covering over the entire surface; with a non-stick pan, no oil is necessary. Heat skillet or griddle to medium-high.
Spoon batter onto skillet and spread the batter with the back of a large spoon. Leave space between each pancake so that you can use a spatula to flip each one easily. If desired, drop berries, chocolate chips, etc. onto the uncooked side of the pancakes. (Or make into fun shapes like hearts, flowers or your kids’ names using a Pancake Pen!)
If you’d like colorful pancake batter, divide batter between bowls and add food coloring to each one. For best results, use a Pancake Pen, or try using cleaned honey, jam or ketchup squeeze bottles.
Cook until bubbles begin to form in the batter, then gently flip, continuing to cook until light brown on the bottom. Serve warm with maple syrup, or layer with pieces of wax paper between the pancakes, and seal in a zip-top bag once cooled; refrigerate or freeze and reheat for later serving.
Each packet of mix (2 per bag) serves 4-6.
*Note: To make waffles with my mix, simply spoon 1/2 – 2/3 cup of batter into preheated waffle iron. Close the lid and cook for approximately 5 minutes. Each mix packet makes approximately 7 waffles.
