Gluten Free Pancakes with Apple, Peach and Pear Compote

2013 – Gluten Free Living

Gluten Free Pancakes with Apple, Peach and Pear Compote are wonderful for a big country breakfast, especially if you are trying to eat healthier. I was looking for a wholesome pancake alternative with healthy ingredients and not a lot of sugar or fake sweeteners.

I made up a compote with apples, peaches and pears in a honey and vanilla syrup that turned out wonderfully. Each fruit cooks down into a rich, pleasing sauce, and with the honey the compote has plenty of natural sweetness.

If you’re looking for healthy alternatives to regular pancakes with corn syrup, consider Gluten Free Pancakes with Apple, Peach and Pear Compote as a healthy, gluten free alternative. If you can’t do dairy consider substituting coconut milk for the milk in the recipe.

You don’t have to make these pancakes gluten free, but if you need a gluten free recipe, I recommend Pamela’s Gluten Free Pancake and Baking Mix. It’s a great alternative to regular flour and turns out great pancakes every time.

When I first published this post back in March 2013, I was still using an iPhone for a camera. The pictures were less than pleasing. I also made these pancakes initially with buckwheat and oat flours, which ended up making the pancakes too heavy and dense.

I recently remade these pancakes (September 2015) and this time I used Pamela’s Gluten Free Baking and Pancake Mix. This time the pancakes turned out light and fluffy — much more pleasing to the palate and the compote was delectable.

Consider making a batch of these Gluten Free Pancakes with Apple, Peach and Pear Compote the next time you have company for breakfast–especially if any of your guests have gluten intolerance. They will be able to eat these delicious pancakes and no one else will even realize that they’re gluten free!

Recipe Notes

NOTE: To make a fluffier pancake add ¾ cup soured milk and ½ tsp. baking soda. To sour milk, add 1 tbsp. white vinegar to milk and allow to stand about 3-5 minutes until mixture curdles and becomes thick.

NOTE: While I used oat and buckwheat flours the first time I made this recipe, these flours make a very heavy pancake that most people will not enjoy. I highly recommend that you use Pamela’s gluten free pancake and baking mix in this pancake recipe.
