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.

    Ok, now I’m starting to feel like your blog stalker. I swear I’ve been on here at least 5 times in the last 24 hours! 🙂 And of course I’ve been telling all my health conscious family and friends about you. Just made these for lunch with some homemade turkey sausage patties and I’m thinking nothing could have been better. I honestly didn’t think they could live up to your description but, would be good just the same (and healthy too!) So, I think they really do taste like eating a warm pie….will definitely be making these again! And I LOVE the simplicity of your recipes. If feel like after making them just a few times I will have them memorized. Makes my life as a mom just that much easier. Thanks!

    Katie – I JUST made these for the first time this morning for breakfast. Mine didn’t turn out half as pretty as your photos show yours, but that didn’t affect the taste at all! YUM! I spread some almond butter on top of mine and it was just heavenly! Thanks for the fun ideas!

  3. Lena says

    Katie, I’m sure you’ll be pleased to know that even when one begins making this recipe (for the hundredth time), and then realizes that one has no apples whatsoever in their house (for the first time ever), and thus ends up making hot apple pie pancakes sans apples, these still turn out glorious. 😉

  4. Stephanie @ Legally Blinde says

    I made these for breakfast today and they were absolutely delicious! Topped with some cooked apples and banana, as well as some sunflower seed butter, plus a dash of cinnamon, this was the perfect way to start my day and so satisfying! Thanks for such a great recipe 🙂

  5. Trish says

    Just made these….yumm-o! I actually cooked my apples first for about 7 minutes over med-low heat to soften them up…threw in a tad bit of lemon juice, a pinch of salt and cinnamon, and a tsp. of xylitol. Then once they cooled down a bit I threw folded them in with the rest of the ingredients. I used a gluten free mix that I make here at home (finely ground brown rice flour, a little sorghum flour, a pinch of xanthan gum, potato starch, and arrowroot starch…or tapioca could be used for those who can tolerate it), which already had a little bit of xanthan gum, so they held together perfectly. The texture was identical to that of a wheat pancake, only heartier and more filling because of the oats. I topped mine with some whipped cream made from the coconut fat in the canned milk, and then I sprinkled on a few walnuts and drizzled just a tiny bit of maple-flavored agave. So not entire healthy, but still WAAAAY better than IHOP! I’m going to see if I can actually bake these into little mini fluted tube cakes and blog about them on my bundt cake blog! You’ll see a link-back if I accomplish this fete. 🙂

    I think i might have done somthing wrong… I followed the recipe but mine were raw inside. I cooked them low-medium heat and only flipped them once but only the outside cooked not in inside. What did I do wrong?

      • sarah says

        Okay, I’ll try it again this weekend and let ya know how it goes:P I really want them, they look soo good 😉

        Thanks for replying:)

        • sarah says

          I finally tried them out this week and…. they were sooo delicious!! They didnt cook last time because I added too much milk:P Im soo glad I decided to try them again! So yummy, even my sister couldnt stop trying to eat them off my plate haha 😉

  7. Joy says

    omg i made these these morning and i have only one word for them……DELICIOUS!!!! you should know that i make your pancakes every morning and im so excited to wake up just because im excited to make them!…i think i should eat them for lunch also….ahahaha

  8. Katalicst7 says

    Katie, me and my son have both been recently diagnosed with egg, sugar and wheat allergies. Being known for my baking, this was devastating for me! I’ve been crying my way through breakfasts, trying to make things (especially pancakes) that everyone can eat, only to have disaster after disaster being thrown away in the garbage. These pancakes put such a huge smile on everyone’s face – and I’m so excited to try some of the others. We’re considering going vegan because it seems to supplement this diet so well, and after watching forks over knives last night, I think it sealed the deal. I’m nervous to try it, especially for my little 3 year old, because I hear so many claims on both sides, some pointing out dangerous risks coming from the vegan diet (mostly deficiencies). I’m worried about getting enough calcium in our diets, especially if we don’t eat soy. Any recommendations for good blogs/books to help us get started? Especially sites that are sensitive to people with wheat/soy /sugar allergies. Thanks so much for what you’re doing!!!

    Hi Katie,
    I, too, am reaching stalker-status here. Found you last night via Pinterest and now I’ve read many of your posts and I’ve already made these pancakes! I doubled the recipe and it was just right for me and my 2 little boys. I made them with no changes except I served them plain and they just dipped them in applesauce. I didn’t know a 1-yr old could eat that much of anything!
    I’m a vegetarian and looking forward to surprising my non-veg family with more of your delicious HEALTHY treats! Thanks!

  10. Liz dR says

    OH GOD I JUST FOUND THESE ONES!!! I will be making these tomorrow instead. Or maybe in addition. And adding bananas anyway. HOW are you such a pancake goddess?! 😀

  11. Juliette says

    I have tried several recipes on your site (especially in the oatmeal section- you have made oatmeal my favorite meal!) but I have to say this is the absolute best thing I have tried!!!! I feel like I’m eating a delicious dessert for breakfast. I made this the morning of my college graduation because I wanted a special breakfast and it started my day off perfectly 🙂

  12. Cosette says

    Thanks to you Katie, my dad had a wonderful fathers day full of your amazing recipes! Starting with these delicious apple pie pancakes 🙂

  13. Nora says

    Just made a batch of these and topped them with a little maple syrup and some chopped apple. It was so delicious!

  14. Kaylie @ Skinny Muffin says

    Hey! I just made these with a couple changes and they are SO good. I absolutely adore your blog and think it’s so inspiring to see another young blogger. And the fact that you’re coming out with a cookbook is AHmazing. Can’t wait for it! Thanks so much for this and all of your wonderful recipes.

  15. Andrea says

    Doubled this recipe this morning for breakfast for me and my husband. WOW. I expected them to be good, but OMGosh, Katie! This is quite possibly the best breakfast I’ve ever had! I can’t even tell you how good they were! We topped them with some vanilla frozen yogurt. 🙂

  16. Souz says

    Hi Katie, could you state how long approx you cook each pancake per side? I’m mid-process making these, but as they don’t react like regular pancakes (with eggs, and bubbles-for-flipping-cue), I’m not really sure what I’m looking for. Smells good, though!

  17. Jasmine says

    I tried this recipe but with a few changes:
    Instead of apple I used baked butternut squash and I used 1/2 tsp almond extract + 1/2 tsp vanilla extract! SO YUMMY!!

  18. Laura says

    This was so good! The perfect fall breakfast. I used spelt flour and coconut oil, both of which I had never tried before and I think it makes a big difference.

  19. Julia Smith says

    Hiii Katie! I calculated this recipie with 275 calories and 2.5 grams of fat using Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk, no oil, and the sugar! Hope I helped! 🙂

  20. Elizabeth says

    Aw I LOVED these! I topped them with syrup!
    Also, if you want to add coconut oil, but not a whole tablespoon, it works to add a teaspoon of coconut oil and just take a teaspoon of milk out.
    They were wonderful! I’ll be making these for my room mate for her birthday breakfast next week!

  21. Elyse says

    These are so delicious! I’ve been wanting to make them for a while, and they were worth the wait. They really do taste like apple pie, especially with ice cream on top. I cooked mine in butter and added a little brown sugar to the mix 😉

  22. Sara says

    I made these yesterday morning, and I spent the rest of the day telling people about the awesome pancakes I had for breakfast. This morning I was about to make the exact same thing since I have an abundance of apples, but then I noticed an open can of pumpkin puree in the fridge. I used 1/4 cup pumpkin instead of the 1/2 cup apple and left everything else exactly the same. They are a little gooey in the middle but still GOOD! Do you have any suggestions for making a better PUMPKIN pancake?

  23. renata says

    I subbed oats for 2 tbsp chia seeds (I’m intolerant to oats), 1 tsp of splenda for the sugar (still on the hunt for a good stevia, will try nunaturals!), 1/2 cup grated apple (squeezed out the juice before). they turned out SO fluffy and moist, I was surprised because I added no oil. Maybe it was because there was some extra moisture from the grated apples.

    UHHHMAZING recipe. I love this. and your blog. and your wonderful creative mind.
    I’m in university in toronto and LITERALLY every day during this exam period I’ve been trying 1-2 recipes of yours. I’ve been vegan for a while now and I love that vegan baking can surprise even my boyfriend (who loves his “2 bite brownies” from costco) <3
