But what if you have a food intolerance? If you struggle with gluten, dairy or eggs, you might think that Shrove Tuesday is an event you need to avoid.

Fortunately, the booming Free From market has you covered. From plant-based milks to alternative flours, there are a wide variety of substitutes available, meaning you don’t have to miss out!

So, grab a whisk and get ready to whip up some delicious Free From pancake alternatives

Dairy free pancakes

There’s been a boom in the Free From milk market over the last decade. Everything from oat to hemp milk now fights for top billing on the supermarket shelf. If you need to swap out dairy in your pancakes there is a huge selection of alternative milks to tempt you, including:

  • Coconut
  • Hazelnut
  • Oak
  • Hemp
  • Almond
  • Rice
  • Tigernut
  • Soya

When it comes to choosing one, it really depends on your taste preference. Different dairy-free milks offer different flavours but it’s fantastic to know that there are many substitutes on offer so you don’t have to miss out.

Gluten free pancakes

Flour is a staple ingredient in pancakes but if you’re avoiding wheat or gluten, never fear, there are plenty of alternatives you can use to whip up a batch of these tasty treats.

Gluten free flours are becoming more readily available and alternatives like almond or coconut flour are common substitutes in a range of recipes.

We love the range of low-cost gluten free recipes available on Gluten Free On A Shoestring

Egg free pancake alternatives

There aren’t many key ingredients in pancakes (if you don’t include the many potential toppings!) but eggs are generally considered to be essential.

Thankfully it’s possible to replace these quite easily and still make delicious pancakes. Applesauce or banana are two alternatives which can work a treat, whilst also delivering the additional benefit of natural sweetness.
