Gluten Free Pancake Mix

Easy tips to make them perfect!

Using these few key steps will make your gluten free pancakes not just good but perfect. These are easy to learn and they hopefully will soon become part of your pancake making routine.

  1. Mix your wet ingredients first eggs (or egg alternative), milk of choice, and oil of choice. Whisk them together well, until frothy.
  2. Gently mix Josie’s Best Pancake mix in to the wet ingredients – do not over mix, let the batter be slightly lumpy!
  3. Allow you pancake mix to “rest” for 3-5 minutes while your pan heats. You will see bubbles start forming in the batter as it rests.
  4. Using a non stick style pan is easiest. You can certainly use a stainless steel or cast iron skillet, just make sure it will sell seasoned and preheated when you lay the pancake batter down.
  5. Gently lay the pancake mix down on your preheated pan. Note: the pan should be warm but not smoking!
  6. Your pancakes are ready to flip when a few bubbles start forming and popping on the top.
  7. Gently slide a flipper under your pancake and flip to the other side to cook for 1-2 minutes.
  8. To test for doneness gently poke the pancake in the middle. A finished pancake will gently spring back. If the pancake does not spring back or has any batter ooze out of the sides let it cook for a few minutes longer.
  9. Serve immediately with butter and syrup or any of your other favorite toppings.

  1. If you are not serving your pancakes immediately do not stack them as the steam will make them soggy! Setting them on a cooling rack is a great option.
  2. If you find the bottom side of your pancake is getting too dark (before the pancake is ready to flip) you need to turn down the heat on your pan.
  3. If you find that your pancakes are wider on the top than the bottom and a bit dense, then, you most likely flipped them too late! Flipping the pancakes when the top side is still raw ensures an even cook!

4. Cinnamon Pancakes: Sprinkle some ground cinnamon into the pancake batter for a warm and comforting flavor. You can also add a touch of nutmeg or cloves for extra depth.

Why Pancakes?

From her childhood watching her culinary father whip up breakfasts, Josie has always appreciated good food—especially if that food was fluffy, round, and drizzled with syrup. When she was diagnosed with food allergies in her 20s, she set out to find a pancake mix that could stand up to her cravings.

When she couldn’t find it on the market, she spent hours in her kitchen tinkering with ingredients and measurements until she created what we now simply call “the pancake.” From there, we’ve grown Josie’s Best Gluten Free to include the waffle, the muffin & more, and the crepe.

What started as a personal mission has grown into a larger one—to bring back breakfast for everyone. Today, our customers are revived breakfast enthusiasts, home bakers, and well-loved restaurants looking to provide delicious options for all. And, just like a plate of pancakes or fresh-baked bread, Josie’s is best served with warm smiles and a side of family connection.

For the sleeves rolled up, flour on the nose messes that are the beginning of lifelong memories. We’re there on Sundays when you want to pile the pancakes higher than little hands can reach them. Or when you’ve declared “breakfast for dinner” and, somehow, it’s the best night of the week. Josie’s Best Gluten Free is there for all the moments you should never miss out on because of a food allergy.
