Ingredient Substitutes for Gluten-Free Green Pancakes
Here are some ideas for swapping up ingredients.
- Almond milk can be substituted with cow’s milk, soy milk, oat milk, or coconut milk.
- Spinach can be swapped with kale or collard greens.
- Coconut sugar can be substituted with brown sugar, honey, or maple syrup.
- Coconut oil can be replaced with melted butter or any other vegetable oil.
- Bananas can be substituted with applesauce, pumpkin puree, or sweet potato puree for a similar binding effect.
- Coconut yogurt can be replaced with any type of yogurt or whipped cream.
Keep in mind that substitutions may affect the final taste and texture of the pancakes. It’s best to experiment and find the ones that work best for your personal preferences.
Gluten-Free Flour Substitutions for Self-Rising Flour
- Rice flour. Use in a 1:1 ratio for all-purpose flour in most recipes.
- Oat flour is made from ground oats and is another popular gluten-free flour substitute. Use in a 1:1 ratio for all-purpose flour in most recipes.
- Chickpea flour is made from ground chickpeas and is a protein-packed flour that adds a nutty flavour to dishes. It works best in savoury recipes. Use in place of all-purpose flour in a 1:1 ratio for the batter.
- Almond flour is made from ground almonds. It’s a flour higher in protein compared to all-purpose flour. This works well in baked goods. Use in a 1:2 ratio for all-purpose flour.
- Coconut flour is made from ground coconut meat, it’s fibre-rich flour. Although, due to its high absorbency, you will need to use it in a 1:4 ratio for all-purpose flour.
- Buckwheat flour can be used a little less too. Use 3/4 cup of buckwheat flour for every 1 cup of all-purpose flour. Be aware that it may alter the flavour and texture of the pancakes.
All-Purpose Flour Substitutions for Self-Rising Flour
If you do not require a gluten-free pancake, make a substitute by mixing all-purpose flour with baking powder and salt. For this recipe, mix 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 3 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
