Gluten-Free Mixes

LC Foods Gluten-Free Pancake Mix

This low carb pancake mix is made from a proprietary blend of tapioca, almond and coconut flours as well as flax meal, which gives it a unique light and fluffy texture! This pancake mix is not only gluten-free but also checks off a number of other boxes. It is high in fibre, sugar-free (sweetened with natural stevia and monk fruit) and our lowest carb gluten-free mix. The blend of different flours and meals also gives these pancakes a wonderful sweet, nutty taste that is best enjoyed with a sugar-free syrup and a creamy nub of butter.

It should be noted that LC Foods does process vital wheat gluten in the same facility as its other gluten-free products. That said, food safe cleaning procedures are followed to ensure limited cross contamination.

How to Make Your Own Pancake Mix

In the odd chance that you still haven’t found what you are looking for, you can also make your own pancake mix at home! This is a great way to control exactly what goes into your diet and meet the unique dietary needs of you and your family. Plus, you can make a big batch of the dry ingredients and store it for later use whenever. Here are our recommendations for the perfect pancake batter ingredients, although feel free to customize your mix exactly to your liking!

Low Carb and Gluten-Free Flours

We recommend using a blend of a few different flours when making low carb pancakes, as this will allow the pancakes to hold together better and provide a wonderful mix of subtle flavours!

You can also add the following meals to increase the fibre content of your batter. Why not make your pancakes healthful and indulgent?

Don’t forget to add a leavening (baking soda and/or powder) to your mix, as well as salt to taste.

Sweeteners

For a sweetened batter that is still low carb and sugar-free, try one of these natural sweeteners:

  • Stevia powder or liquid drops
  • Erythritol, which has a very neutral flavour but can cause a “cooling” sensation in the mouth when eaten! Recipe idea: Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes.
  • Monk Fruit Sweeteners, which have a slight fruity flavour, but can still be very pleasant in pancakes and other baked goods!
  • Xylitol, which is also great for baking and has a very neutral flavour. Plus, it has been shown to improve dental health! (Just note to keep Xylitol on an upper shelf or locked cabinet. It’s made from birch bark and is completely safe for adult and children consumption but can be fatal for dogs – like chocolate).

Flavour Additions

Finally, to make your pancakes truly shine, add in some extra flavours, protein sources or other textural components:
