  • 1/3 cup ww pastry, white, spelt, or arrowhead mills’ gf flour
  • 2 tbsp rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup finely-chopped apple
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2/3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp sugar or pinch uncut stevia
  • 1/3 cup  milk of choice, or more for  thinner pancakes
  • Unless you like the taste of fat-free pancakes, add 1 tbsp oil (coconut oil is delicious here!) or buttery spread, and reduce milk by 1 tbsp


Combine dry ingredients in a bowl, then add wet. Mix, but don’t overmix. Cook on an oiled (or sprayed) pan, on low-medium, flipping each pancake once. Top with syrup or ice cream of choice (my absolute favorite ice cream recipe is linked under the second photo in this post). Or cut up more apple, sprinkle with cinnamon (and perhaps some sweetener), and boil to make an apple compote.

    Ahh! Katie, I posted before on your Blueberry Pancakes–again, I’m not really a pancake person, but I randomly got a craving and those hit the spot. I’m headed home from college for the weekend so I’ll finally have access to a stove and (free!) ingredients again; guess what my dinner is going to be? 😉 Love your recipes so much, keep it up!!!

  13. Lisa C says:

    Ok, breakfast Sunday is planned.

    Thanks! 😉

  14. Oh, yum! Pancakes could totally pass as dessert for me (favourite food ever!), as well as fruit+quark/cream for example. I’ve also eaten dessert for breakfast a few times. 😉

  15. Michaela says:

    that´s a perfect weekend breakfast 🙂 I will make it with apples freshly picked from our apple tree!

    I like pancakes for desserts, too. Don´t know whether or not you know “Kaiserschmarrn”? So popular in Germany/Austria. It´s a big fluffy pancake, ripped into pieces while still in the pan, served with raisins and slithered almonds. The vegan version is really good, too 🙂

  16. I think every meal should taste like dessert! 🙂

  17. Michaela says:

    I will make this for the perfect saturday breakfast tomorrow using apples from our garden 🙂

    Why have I never thought of pizzert for dessert????????? MUST make that!

  18. Christelle says:

    These look amazing Katie! Need to pick up some apples for this weekend to try these and my favorite…your apple cinnamon boatmeal 🙂

  19. Hmm do you mean dessert for breakfast or breakfast for dessert lol. Well, I’ve done both I’m pretty sure! I have chocolate with breakfast quite a bit.
