Rice Pancakes

I love pancakes but being gluten free I am always looking for something good for pancakes. I have been reacting to all grains except rice, so when I over cooked a pot of rice, I came up with these pancakes. I don't like to throw food out if it can be used. I have tried white and brown rice and either is good. It is a simple recipe and can be changed up for different flavors. 

Place eggs first into blender and add other ingredients. 

 Blend until you are happy with the consistency.

Rice Pancakes
4 eggs
2 cups of cooked rice
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp of baking powder (optional)
1/2 tsp of salt
1-2 tsp of oil
1 TB of flour, your choice of kind. 

Place eggs first into blender and add other ingredients. Blend until you are happy with the consistency. If your rice is cold and on the hard side, zap it in the microwave with a spoonful of water and let it cool before using it. This works great with rice that you have overcooked. (like brown rice that is cooked to mush.....umm I hate to throw food out ;) 

Pour into a hot skillet and cook as you would any pancake. Don't be stingy with the butter either ;) These are made very much like the Pumpkin Pancakes I make too. 

Brainstorming some possible flavor ideas: 1 TB of cocoa, 2 TB of cream cheese- don't add oil, 2 TB of Nutella-don't add oil, 2 TB of peanut butter-don't add oil, 1-2 TB of pumpkin and 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice, 1 TB of apple sauce and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, fresh fruit chunks, blueberries, chocolate chips.....aww I could go on forever! Let me know if you try a flavor, please share how it turned out.

I link at these parties.

  1. Thank you! I'm trying to take gluten out of my diet, so these came along just at the right time! I'm pinning this!

  2. We're not going gluten-free but are trying to eat better. Yesterday we tried Ellen DeGeneres' banana oatmeal pancakes. Not bad! I can eat them without syrup.

  3. I have to eat this way due to allergies! Thanks for posting this I will try it out.

  4. I don't have a problem with gluten, but these just plain look kind of good.

  5. Definitely going to have to try this recipe. My daughter has food allergies so I'm always looking for some new recipes to try :)

  6. Like Olga, gluten isn't a problem but I would eat those pancakes willingly! Maybe add raisins and cinnamon! Yum!

  7. We have Gluten allergies in our house and these look fantastic!
    Thanks for sharing.

  8. Hi Connie, shared on my FB page! Thank you so much for linking it up at the Fluster Buster Party! Can't wait to see what you share next week! Lizy party co host

  9. These sound great! I always have leftover rice in my fridge - this is the perfect way to put it to good use :)

  10. What a clever idea! While I'm not gluten free, I try to make things sans wheat every so often. I love oatmeal pancakes but hadn't thought to use rice. Can't wait to try it out! Also, I am a brand new pancake convert so I've been making them like crazy. I have come a long way from my waffles-only days :)
