Pancakes with Pancake & Waffle Mix (Dairy-Free)

Yield: six 4-inch pancakes

Pancakes with Pancake & Waffle Mix (Dairy-Free)


  • 1 cup Pancake & Waffle Mix
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup water, or soy, rice, almond or coconut milk.
  • 1 TBSP oil
  • Allergen Options:
  • For egg, use equivalent prepared egg replacer and reduce water by 1/4 cup. Batter should be thick.


Mix all ingredients together to combine. Batter should not be too thin or too thick. Add 1 TBSP additional water if batter thickens. Preheat griddle to medium/ med-high heat, or 350º to 375˚ for electric griddles. Pour batter onto lightly oiled griddle. When bubbles appear and bottom of pancake is golden brown, flip once and continue cooking until 2nd side is golden brown. Serve immediately.

Extra pancakes can be cooked, cooled, and then wrapped in plastic and frozen. To reheat, remove any wrapping and microwave pancakes wrapped in a paper towel until hot, approximately one-minute.

      HI Amy –
      The new Pancake & Waffle mix (non-dairy) does not contain any dairy ingredients.
      In the box below the ingredient panel it does contain a possible allergen warning so folks know what is processed on the same equipment. However, our equipment is cleaned & sanitized in between processing of each different mix.
      If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact customer service.

    This is the best gluten free pancake mix I have ever tried! My daughter has a wheat and egg allergy. I replace the egg with banana and add chocolate chips or blueberries and my family of 5 can’t get enough! Thank you for making breakfast easy and delicious!

    I ditto everything Diane said above, but NOT about this new dairy-free mix — only about your original GF mix! (Though I do use egg, and add mini-choc chips & blueberries, and the pancakes are AMAZING, have always been a huge winner for years.) Last time I was at Whole Foods there was only this bag, so I didn’t think much of it, thought it was a design change. I hate to put it this way… and I almost never post online reviews… but UGH!!!! I had my boyfriend’s grand-kids (age 7 and 8) over for breakfast-as-dinner tonight, planning to delight them w/ my famous choc. chip pancakes, but alas, it was not to be. These are just… not the same, nowhere close. They take FOREVER to cook and their texture is simply not pancake-like.PLEASE make it more clear that this is a completely DIFFERENT mix, so others don’t get confused and botch an entire meal!!Thanks,Marcy

      Hi Marcy –
      Pamela created the Pancake & Waffle non-Dairy mix to meet the demands of the increasing number of folks who cannot have dairy. It is a completely different blend with different tastes & textures. It is also a completely different color package, different pancake drawing and a different name which specifies non-Dairy on the front of the bag. I will forward your comments to Pamela.

    My whole family LOVED this new mix. Some of us have egg/dairy/gluten sensitivities, but others do not, and everyone loved the new mix. I also love that there is no Xanthan Gum. We replaced the egg with 1/4 cup of applesauce, and it worked great. Our only problem is that we are having trouble finding the mix now! Our Whole Foods tried to order it, but the warehouse had none- they could only get us the version with dairy. Hoping Amazon will carry it soon! Thanks for the wonderful product! Seriously life changing for us on busy school mornings!

    Hi, I am confused by “For water, use 3/4 cup soy, rice, almond or coconut milk.” Does that mean imstead of using water, to use those milk substitutes instead? If I am using an egg replacement, only use 1/2 cup of the water replacements?????

    • Pamelas Customer Service May 28, 2015 at 10:14 am #

      Hi Danielle –
      For the liquid, you may use: 3/4 cup water – or – 3/4 cup soy milk – or – 3/4 cup rice milk – or – 3/4 cup almond milk – or – 3/4 cup coconut milk.
      If you are using an egg replacer, reduce the amount of the above liquid by 1/4 cup, using only 1/2 cup of liquid, plus the egg replacer.
      I hope this helps.

    This is so good. I have been experimenting. My new favorite is adding a bit of pumpkin, a few spices, pecans, and chocolate chips. HOORAY!

    Wow! I was worried because SO many dairy free/ gluten-free products just aren’t that great. Something about the dairy, makes stuff fluffier. But Pamela!! You truly are the master!! I actually liked these better than the original mix. I always add vanilla and cinnamon to my mix and I am fine with eggs. These pancakes were super thick and delicous. I can’t wait to experiment more with it. Thank you for bringing happy back to breakfast 😀

      Amazon carries it, that is where I buy mine. You can get it in a single 4 lb package or the set of 3- 4 lb packages that I buy.

    Hi! I can’t seem to find the alternate recipe on the bag anymore that has no egg. Flax seed was used instead. Could you help please?

    you stoll have to use an egg to make these pancakes, so it is not vegan…. a disappointment

      Hello Jean,
      The mix itself is vegan and you could use an egg replacer to make the finished pancakes vegan.

        Thank you so much for the suggestion

    • Pamelas Customer Service June 5, 2018 at 10:56 am #

      Hi Dennis,
      No, there are no flax seeds in any of our baking mixes.
