Hot Apple Pie Pancakes


  • 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.

    I love breakfast for dinner! Actually, my mom used to let us have the sugary cereals ONLY as a dessert. Froot Loops was a favorite…ugh…this looks much tastier.

  2. Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner) says

    YUM I am so so so so SO having this on Pancake Sunday!! Excited already!! 😀

    Haha I have dessert for breakfast AND breakfast for dessert! A pizzert is the best dessert in the WORLD 🙂

  3. Jenna says

    Oh these look and sound so good!! I’m pretty sure I MUST make them this weekend!!
    Breakfast foods are wonderful for dessert! Even smoothies sometimes! …Or muffins! 🙂 My husband loves to eat waffles & pancakes for dessert too :). But what I like most is having dessert instead of a meal and calling it breakfast! 🙂 🙂

    Hey Katie. Tried to click on the Vanilla ice milk link and it wouldn’t show it. Can you send me the link and i’ll try to type it in. Sometimes that works. Thanks. The pancakes look yummy and with the ice milk, even yummier!

  5. Jessica @ Jess Go Bananas says

    Everything is better a la mode! 🙂 I have had my fair share of pancakers for dessert nothin’ like the ole chocolate chipper 🙂

  6. Ragnhild says

    Congratulations on getting nominated Katie!!! That is so cool, and so well-desereved!

    These looks fantastic!! I love warm apple things, and these sounds like they will taste like apple pie! MMMMM

  7. Namaste Gurl says

    Mmmmm, perfect for the apple season that started! I’ve got a ton of apples, so can’t wait to try these out 🙂 Not sure if I could handle ice cream in the morning atop, but who knows!

  8. Aja says

    Oats in pancakes never work for me for some reason. They stick and don’t flip and fall apart when I try. Otherwise I would be all over these.

  9. Belinda Cimo says

    I have the awful habit of always needed something sweet after a savory meal. So, yes, I do sometimes eat breakfast foods for dessert, and have been known to nosh on a bowl of cereal right after dinner. But my favorite discovery is dessert for breakfast by frying up a sliced banana or two in one teaspoon or two of olive oil (with a 1/2 TBS of brown sugar, optional) and then adding THAT to my oatmeal! Extremely amazing how the caramelized banana tastes with oatmeal … and sometimes I’ll add in some golden raisins too 🙂 … but then I start thinking about adding RUM to my oatmeal, and that’s a door that should just remain closed … unless I’m on a cruise maybe 😉

  10. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga says

    Do you ever eat breakfast foods for dessert? = yes but nothing as pretty as what you made 🙂

    More like a handful of cereal but when I was growing up with used to have breakfast for dinner all the time. Pancakes, waffles, eggs were also dinnertime recipes.

    The pics are fabulous. Melting things, i.e. the ice cream = hard to photography b/c you have to be FAST. Great job!

  11. Dawn @ Blonde on a Mission says

    These look awesome! I’m definitely trying these out this weekend — I have so many apples from picking them!
    I’m going to make an apple compote to top them with for an extra apple-y flavour 😀

  12. Anna @ Food Fitness Frolicking says

    WOW. These look super tasty. I love the combination of apples and cinnamon.

    And of course I eat breakfast for dessert! My favorite is belgian waffles with icecream on top! Or a yogurt parfait with granola, or better yet, one of your milkshakes!

  13. Kathy says

    Usually, I’m not a fan of apples in my food if it’s cooked (aka: baked oatmeal, cakes, etc.) except for oatmeal but that stack of pancakes makes me drool!!
