    We use arrowhead mills gluten free pancake mix when we're in the mood for pancakes or waffles

      There are gluten free flour mixes that are usually blends of tapioca flour, potato starch, rice flour and/or corn starch or you can make your own blend. I make pancakes maybe once a month or less on Sunday mornings and I don't worry about. I don't like associate food with cheating. Life is too short not to occasionally eat a food that will not poison you. A gluten free pancake with some fresh berries on top and a couple of eggs is pretty killer.

      When making gluten free pancakes, add an extra egg or two to your mix to make it a little more tender.

      Some people like to mix eggs and banana for pancakes.

        Here is what I do regularly for my 5-yr old:

        one egg
        1-2 T applesauce
        1-3 T milk
        2-3 T almond flour (sometimes ground flax or mix)
        dash of vanilla
        dash of cinnamon

        All amounts by feel and approximate to get the right batter texture. I would err on the side of smaller pancakes as sometimes it doesn't hold together like a classic pancake.

        As far as presentation goes, I use blueberries, raisins, and dried mango as decorations to make fish, dog heads, turtles, snowmen, etc. I am becoming quite accomplished in the decoration realm, at least in the uncritical eyes of my daughter and wife (though today I did get a complaint: "that's a fat fish pancake. I wanted a skinny fish" Yeah, whatever).

          Look up Stephan Guyenets receipe for buckwheat pancakes. They're really good, but require somework to go into it and planning.

            I'd rather have....no pancakes.

            You should consider one of banana/egg pancakes -- its recipe is likely to float around a primal/paleolithical community and around the internet. It comprises of mainly 1 banana and two eggs -- simple, gluten-free, AND naturally sweet.

                  Yeah, we use a 1:1 ratio, and it works for us. The only problem is that it doesn't have the same structural integrity that a wheat pancake does, so we've devolved into cooking them as muffins instead.

                    If your cupboard is weird like mine, a dab of acorn starch is a great cohesive for these. Supposedly nut butter and ground chia work too.

                      I soak rice and lentils, then grind and ferment. The fermented batter is used for rice pancakes. Sometimes I mix bananas/molasses to make sweet pancakes. I grind batter once a month and the batter keeps in the fridge. Sours a bit, but still good. It's gluten-free.

                        I haven't been able to find plantains in Australia.

                          I usually use 2 eggs to 1 banana, and they come out pretty fantastic. Add a little peanut butter (or almond) and some honey drizzled on it, Mmm.

                            Rice pancake? Why not just mochi then?

                              That's a shame! I use plantains for everything. The plantain pancakes are very similar to regular pancakes, they flip nicely, and don't fall apart. Banana pancakes taste great but they're just such a pain to flip in the pan because they're so soft. I gave up on them a long time ago, but it can be done with bananas.
