If you’re an old friend of Mindful Chef, you know we love a gluten free pancake for dinner, to so keep scrolling for some weeknight favourites and we’ll show you how to make gluten free pancakes the whole family will love, whether they’re the main event or a side for mopping up all those luscious flavours with.
Why is Mindful Chef gluten free?
We get asked this a lot. In years gone by you’d say gluten free out loud and people would think: cardboard. How times have changed for our tastebuds!
At Mindful Chef we put healthy first, which means there’s no refined carbs, because a lot of those empty calories come from
- White pasta
- White flour
- White bread
They lead to energy slumps, crashes and cravings. But when it comes to how to make gluten free pancakes, traditionalists might think: what? It’s white flour all the way. But we like to think differently, and swap that particular refined carb for more slow-release energy friendly alternatives. For the best gluten free pancakes, our chefs love:
- Buckwheat flour
- Chickpea flour.

What is gluten?
Gluten is a protein found in many grains including
It acts like a binder within a grain – think of it as the stretch in your pizza. It’s fine for loads of people but in some, when it hits the small intestine, it can cause havoc with digestion.
There’s a big difference between those who avoid wheat or gluten through choice, celiacs who suffer from a severe autoimmune response, those with a wheat allergy, and people with intolerances.
The good news that everything is gluten-free on our menu. Yay!
