    Savory Gluten-Free Pancakes Recipe

    This savory gluten-free pancakes recipe is the perfect way to enjoy breakfast for dinner!

    Prep Time:
    Cook time:
    Servings: 18 small pancakes


    • olive oil: for pan
    • cauliflower, grated or finely chopped: 1 cup
    • carrots, grated: 1 cup
    • zucchini: ½ cup
    • plain, non-fat yogurt: 1 cup
    • large egg: 1
    • all-purpose gluten-free flour: 1 cup
    • granulated sugar: 1 tablespoon
    • salt: ½ teaspoon
    • baking soda: ½ teaspoon
    • unsalted butter: 1 tablespoon
    • cheddar cheese, finely grated: ¾ cup


    Step 1: Coat the bottom of a large sauté pan with olive oil and place it over medium heat.

    Step 2: Add the cauliflower, carrots and zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are tender, about 8 minutes. Set aside to cool.

    Step 3: While the vegetables are cooking, in a large mixing bowl, combine the yogurt and egg and mix until well blended.

    Step 4: Add the flour, sugar, salt and baking soda and mix until everything is evenly incorporated and smooth.

    Step 5: Mix in the vegetables and coat the bottom of the same large sauté pan with a bit of the butter, and place it over medium heat.

    Step 6: Use a 1/8 cup measure to scoop the batter and drop it into the pan, with ample space between each one.

    Step 7: Sprinkle about 2 teaspoons of the cheese on top of each portion of batter

    Step 8: Cook the pancakes until they start to bubble a bit along the edges, 2 to 4 minutes per side. They should be golden brown on both sides when they are done. (Note that the cheese will only be added to one side.) Use a little more of the butter each time you add batter to the pan. As the pancakes are finished, place them on a plate and cover with foil until you're ready to serve.
