Bisquick Gluten Free Pancake Review

I was walking through the commissary the other day and noticed a new product on the shelf, Bisquick Pancake and Baking Mix Gluten Free.  Now normally I would just keep walking and not purchase anything from Bisquick because of it's lack of nutrients and what I considered "junk" food, but because of my previous pancake challenge with King Arthurs, Bob's Red Mill and Pamelas mixes it is necessary for me to add this product into the comparison.  

What better day than today,Sunday morning, to splurge on breakfast!  I took the mix which is made of; rice flour, sugar, baking soda, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate, modified potato starch, salt, xanthan gum, and I added flax seed meal, blueberries and thinly sliced bananas.

My husband and I both agreed that it is taste very similar to King Arthur's gluten free pancake mix which was our #1 choice previously.  This will probably have to be a tie for taste but not on the top of my list for nutritional value.  Pamelas still takes the lead on the best ingredients.  Chris explained it best... "they have a crispy outer layer which I love best in a pancake yet still buttery inside, yummy!"

Banana Blueberry (or any berry of choice) Gluten Free Pancakes
  • 1 cup Bisquick Gluten Free mix
  • 1 cup milk (cow, almond or rice milk)
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons flax seed meal
  • 1/2 package fresh blueberries
  • 1 banana thinly sliced
  1. Stir ingredients until blended except fruit.
  2. Then carefully fold in blueberries and bananas.
  3. Pour slightly less than 1/2 cupfuls onto hot greased griddle.
  4. Cook until edges are dry.
  5. Flip and cook until golden
  6. Approx 10 pancakes


  1. i think maple groves farm gluten free pancakes mix is the best

  2. We tried maple groves and thought it had pretty good flavor and texture however it has soy flour in it and we try our best to stay clear of soy products. Have you tried Pamelas or King Arthur's mixes?

  3. Hi,
    I saw your ad on Facebook and had to come and check out your website. You are doing a great job. That pancake recipe looks really good. I haven't tried Biquick yet, that will have to be the next thing on my list. I am following your website site now via google connect, facebook and twitter. Please stop by my website sometime.
    Take Care.

  4. Lisa,
    Thank you for connecting with me and for the compliment! I really appreciate it and glad that you like my site. Your site looks awesome too and I look forward to looking at more. Have a great day!

  5. I like Bisquick. I add blueberries too but will add flax seed next time. I like the nutty flavor flax adds. With Bisquick I can get 3 meals out of for my husband and me. King Arthur's gives me one meal and I can't make biscuits with it.

  6. Patricia,
    You know what I did with the King Arthur's... I add extra water to the mix because I felt it was too thick and this made many many more pancakes. I had so much that I saved it later to make a topping to my chicken pot pie! It was FANTASTIC and super easy.
    Thanks for the feedback!!

  7. Sodium aluminum phosphate is being linked to Alzheimers. I am now making my own version of Bisquick with baking powder with no aluminum!!! Till Bisquick decides to use non aluminum baking powder I am ditching them!
