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.

    Hey, Katie! I just tried these. I like the taste, but they were a little mush in the middle — I even cooked two of them until they were dark brown (crispy) on the outside, but the inside was still mushy.

    I like thick pancakes — and the flavor of these was JUST right (I did 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon btw — I love me some cinnamon) any advice?

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Hmmm… I didn’t have that problem, so maybe it has to do with a specific flour or a particular ingredient, or maybe even stove temperatures. But you might try using a little bit more liquid so that they’re less thick (and thus they will not rise as much, so more of the batter will touch the hot stove). If you do try this, I’d love to know if it works better!

    Ok, these are seriously the best pancakes ever! I made them and I love how thick they come out and even without sugar they were sweet. Thanks for the awesome recipe!!!!!!!

  3. BroccoliHut says

    Love how hearty these pancakes look! No whimpy breakfast here.
    I’ve been known to have cocoa-laced oats for dessert. Oh, and my evening smoothies definitely fall into the breakfast-for-dessert category.

  4. Aubrey says

    I just made these for Saturday breakfast and they were a huge hit! I love apple pie and this is the perfect way to ‘indulge’ early in the day! I may try freezing them to have during the week.

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Wow, I just looked at it and you’re right… all of my pancake recipes are single-serving! You can easily make them multiple-serving by quadrupling (or more) all the ingredients… but yeah lol, that means math. Ugh math ;).

      I’ll try to remember to post a non-single-serving pancake recipe in the future!

  5. Ashley says

    Yes!!! I love to take thick oatmeal (usually flavoured with cinnamon and stevia) and put soy ice cream on top. It sounds weird, but is actually very tasty!

  6. Jenna says

    I’m eating these right now for my Sunday morning breakfast sans the ice cream! YUMMY!! These are so Fall-licious!! 🙂 I added some chopped pecans to mine…Mmmmm! :).
    Thank you again for such wonderful and healthy recipes!

  7. Karen says

    I made these yesterday for my son for breakfast. HE LOVED THEM!!!!!!! They were awesome!!!! Thanks so much for sharing all your wonderful recipes.

  8. Maddy says

    I just made these and ate them with a couple of over-medium eggs. AMAZING. LIKE. VERY THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE. thank you. I’m going to try the blueberry ones next, I think =)

  9. Marissa says

    These are sooooo good!!! You have the best pancake recipes ever!! Love them and love you! I love having breakfast for dinner!!!

    In Japan (where I grew up) we eat pancakes, waffles, and other sweet baked goodies, which are commonly eaten for breakfast in the US, for desserts in the mid afternoon (not after dinner). I was shocked when I saw pancakes served for breakfast for the first time right after I moved to the US. I now eat pancakes for breakfast occasionally, but I still eat mostly Japanese breakfast foods for breakfast and keep so called American breakfast foods for afternoon snacks.

    PS: Just in case you are wondering what Japense eat as after-dinner desserts, we eat fresh fruits.

    Hi Katie!
    I just tried these pancakes out, and They. Were. Phenomenal! Thank you so much for the brilliant post! I am not a vegan, rather, I more or less try to watch my calorie intake. That said, I added about a tablespoon of light whipped butter and an egg white, and used almond breeze vanilla as my milk. I also used splenda for my sweetener. I know many follow a vegan diet on this site, or do not like to use artificial ingredients, but for those who do, they work superb! Keep them coming Katie, I look forward to reading your e-mails every day 🙂

  12. Kathy says

    I made these yesterday w/ a braeburn apple and a squirt of honey.
    Let me just say, it wasn’t good.
    It was spectacular! The apples got caramelized when they were cooking and resulted in a delicious, sweet pancake! Normally, I hate adding apples to any of my foods that are going to be cooked or baked (had a sour experience once, literally), but I’ve only come across 2 recipes (one of them is this recipe) that I absolutely love with apples :]

  13. Joanna says

    OMG. So cinnamony and delicious!
    The recipe made about five small pancakes though, which was great as a morning snack, so I’ll double the recipe for breakfast one day. 😀
    Thanks for sharing!

  14. Curly J says

    Is there something I could substitute the oats with? I’m on a strict elimination diet and I’m not allowed oats yet 🙁 but I really want to try these!!

  15. Jade C says

    I just made these!! Only, instead of using chopped-up apples, I made a big pan of apple compote ((apples stewed with cinnamon and agave)) first, put half to the side to let it cool, and used this instead of the apples and sweetener. The cinnamon really comes through well this way!!
    Then use the rest of the compote as a topping – lovely!!

    Thanks Katie, and keep up the great work!!

    Just tried these…oh my goodness.
    Best breakfast I have had in a LONG time!!
    I’d eat them again tomorrow but I am trying all of your recipes.

  17. Nicole says

    Hi! Can you sub quick oats (on hand for your cookie pie!) instead of the rolled oats? I’m not really an oatmeal person, so I don’t know anything about oats!
