Healthy Apple Pancakes – a delicious apple pancake that is gluten-free, dairy-free and plant-based!



Dry Ingredients:

  • 2 cups oat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons baking powder

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 2 cups Califia Farms Unsweetened Almondmilk
  • 2 egg replacers or flax eggs
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla

Other Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cubed apple
  • 2 Tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • oil for pan (avocado or coconut)


  1. Combine dry ingredients and mix together in medium bowl.
  2. Combine wet ingredients in bowl.
  3. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
  4. Mix well.
  5. Gently mix in apples.
  6. Allow mixture to sit 3-5 minutes, it will thicken slightly.
  7. In the meantime, bring a cast iron skillet to medium heat and add enough oil to just cover the pan so it doesn’t dry out.
  8. Once pan is hot and ready, use a 1/2 cup to scoop out the pancake mix and pour into middle of the pan. Use the measure cup or the back of a spoon to flatten the mixture and make it into a round pancake.
  9. Let cook 2-3 minutes per side or until the edges start to bubble slightly (if you don’t flatten them as much you might want to cook closer to 3-4 minutes per side).
  10. Serve immediately with real maple syrup and additional ground cinnamon on top.


  • Pan should be no hotter than medium heat; reduce heat as you go if needed (cast iron pans retain heat very well)
  • Don’t skip step 6, allowing the mixture to sit for a few minutes helps allow it to thicken.
  • I used a Granny Smith apple, but feel free to use whatever you want
  • I used this egg replacer and it worked SO well!
