Cappuccino Pancakes

There will be a giant “thank you” giveaway up next week. But today I want to show my appreciation with Tiramisu Pancakes.

Tiramisu Pancakes

High in protein.

Low in calories.


With a sugar-free option.

It tastes like eating dessert for breakfast!

Cappuccino Pancakes

Tiramisu Pancakes

Inspired by my Oatmeal Pancakes

  • 1/2 cup spelt, white, or Bob’s gf flour (65g)
  • 3 tbsp rolled oats (15g)
  • just under 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch stevia, or 1 1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp instant coffee granules (I like Mt. Hagen)
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice (Decrease by 2 tbsp if using maple syrup) (120g)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp oil (10g)
  • optional: Add a little rum extract if desired, or replace 2 tsp of the milk with rum

For the Frosting:

  • 1/4 cup cream cheese (such as Daiya or Tofutti) (60g)
  • 1/4 cup Mori-Nu tofu OR more cream cheese (60g)
  • 2 tbsp milk of choice (30g)
  • pinch pure stevia, or 2 1/2 tbsp powdered sugar (Or use a liquid sweetener and decrease the milk)
  • cocoa powder for dusting (important)

Combine all pancake dry ingredients in a bowl, and stir very well. In a separate bowl, whisk together all pancake liquid ingredients. Pour dry into wet, and stir to form a batter. (If the batter is too thin–which might be the case if using cup measurements–just add a little extra flour until you achieve a pancake-esque batter.) Lightly grease a medium skillet, then place over medium heat. When the pan is hot, drop small ladelfuls of batter onto the skillet. Using a spatula, flip the pancakes when the edges begin to look dry. Allow to cook one additional minute, then remove from heat. Makes 10-12 silver-dollar pancakes, or 1-2 servings. For the frosting: Blend all ingredients together until completely smooth. You’ll only use about half the frosting… but, for smoothest blending, it’s best to make a full batch unless you have a tiny blender. You can always use the extra frosting to top banana bread, baked oatmeal, or my Hummingbird Cupcakes.

  1. Jules @ WolfItDown says

    Hmm have been meaning to make some mocha pancakes, but these might just hit the spot! Thanks for a great recipe Katie, I love love love tiramisu! It’s definitely one of my favourite desserts 😀 x

  2. anna says

    These look DELICIOUS— a must try!

    Also, I love your dress in that top photo! Is it two separate dresses or one? Where did you buy it?

  3. Gail says

    This is our favorite pancake recipe, BY FAR:

    It is not vegan, but I supposed Katie can take care of that. =)
    We made changes to suit our family (double the walnuts, add cinnamon, use splenda and agave instead of sugar, use almond milk, grind our own flour) and we serve with our own homemade maple syrup! We think this recipe is superior to those served in that well-known pancake house. =)

  4. Hayley says

    Tiramisu PANCAKES? Sounds so incredible and so, so indulgent. You look so great in the first photo of the post! Glowing & healthy! Can’t wait to make these pancakes. Oh, and I agree with the person above me. PEANUT BUTTER PANCAKES 🙂

  5. Mia (Mia in Germany) says

    Sweet photo 🙂
    And sweet pancakes LOL They look fabulous. Just today I made my favourite, buckwheat pancake. Next time I’ll try these!
    And congrats for the 100,000 likes! You’ve made something extremely well, evidently.

  6. Am says

    I had no breakfast plans and had just bought Bob’s Red Mill GF flour for the blueberry muffin loaf, and when I saw these, I was like, “Breakfast solved!” They are absolutely delicious!!!!! I used imitation rum extract, and I love the rum-coffee flavor. I had no cream cheese, so I didn’t have any filling, but they are delicious without. Thank you so much!

  7. Shawna says

    wow. i’m not even much of a pancake person, but these look amazing. i bet my family would loooove these (and i totally wouldn’t tell them they’re healthified!). 🙂

  8. AnnaBananaBelle says

    Wow that looks great! and oh my gosh you look gorgeous Katie! You seriously look absolutely adorable! what a cute dress. 😉

  9. Mo says

    Can’t wait to try these =)
    My very favorite pancake recipe is a really old one I got from cooking light. I looked, didn’t see it to link. Pumpkin cornmeal pancakes. Yum!

  10. Amber @ Slim Pickin's Kitchen says

    Uuum…yum! I’m always thinking of ways to get more caffeine in my system since my 8 month old has decided that sleeping is for the birds 😉

  11. Hilary says

    Thank you so much for posting this recipe! My mom loves tiramisu and what better way to greet her on Mother’s Day than tiramisu pancakes 🙂

  12. laura says

    there is an amazing vega/vegetarian restaurant in Toronto, Canada called Fresh that makes the most delicious and giant vegan banana nut buckwheat pancakes. They are super huge and fluffy and filled with lots of banana slices and pistachios, cashews, almond and walnuts! It’s the best because I am gluten and dairy free and finally a pancake recipe I can eat

    I am intrigued by this frosting. I own organic meadows cream cheese (not vegan) and mori-nu tofu and will definitely give it a try

  13. EVA says

    My go-to pancake recipe is actually your banana pancakes! I seriously make them once a week for dinner. I had only had pancakes once or twice before trying your recipe, as my mom has never made pancakes, and it was a VERY rare occasion where we’d go out to breakfast. So, at the ripe age of 18, I had to google “how to make pancakes” because I had your lovely recipe but was completely lost on the technique! HA!

    That being said, I’m not really familiar with any pancake flavors. Maybe you could attempt a crepe?

  14. Emily says

    Wow! These look amazing. So happy to have stumbled upon your blog! I have a terrible sweet tooth but know I need to make healthier options. You are so talented, thank you for sharing!

  15. Ellie H. says

    I nominate chocolate peanut butter pancakes to be made! Also, maybe peach cobbler pancakes? I don’t know how those would taste with maple syrup, though…
    Other ideas to try: red velvet pancakes, peanut butter and jelly pancakes, and sweet potato pancakes (but maybe not for breakfast!)!
    I love pancakes! I especially LOVE your apple pie pancakes.

    (ps.- you look super cute in the above picture! I ♥ your dress/ apron and your shoes!)
    (pps.- do you have a recipe for chocolate I could use to dip food like strawberries in? Or should I just use your 3 ingredient chocolate bar recipe? Thanks!)

  16. Reemaz says

    Seeing this really made me day! Thank you for feeding my eyes! I can’t wait to make these! and I love your apron!

  17. Christine says

    Wow, i can’t wait to try these! They look amazing! My current favourite pancakes are lemin and poppy seed. I top them with plain soy yogurt and fresh strawberries, soooo good!

  18. Shonalika says

    HUGE congratulations on your 1000,000 likes on Facebook – its an amazing achievement! As, of course, is the transformation of tiramisu into pancake form… who’d have thought of it?? It’s the perfect post to prove those likes are well-earned:D

  19. shartran says

    Will definitely try these…my fav dessert has got to be tiramisu…the fact that you put it into pancakes(another favorite!) is genius:))

    Thanks Katie

  20. Jessica says

    I love making my sourdough pancakes with eggnogg instead of milk in season…I don’t think there’s any way to make that vegan though.

  21. Tara says

    I live for anything Tiramisu. These pancakes look divine. And so does your hair! I love the volume, what products do you use?

    • Chocolate Covered Katie says

      Made my day. Thank you 🙂
      I change it up, to be honest… One of my favorites is Desert Essence coconut moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. I use the conditioner almost every day but only use the shampoo about 3 times a week. I’m terrified of over-processing, so I don’t blow dry, but in the photo I did use a curling iron and then hairspray at the end for more staying power.

  22. Lacey D says

    That picture of you is the CUTENESS. I love it. You have a slightly Alice feel to you in it, like you might go unexpectedly down a rabbit hole at any moment… 😉
    Oh and the pancakes. Um, hello! Your site is always the destination when going to make pancakes while still fulfilling my sweet tooth. Unfortunately, I can’t have grains any more 🙁 Guess I’ll have to sub in almond/coconut flours!

  23. daisy says

    Hi Katie!
    I was just wondering if there was something i could sub for the vegan cream cheese ?(i live in england we dont really get any brands like daiya)
    Also i was thinking a banoffee pie pancake sounds pretty yummy 😀 and have you thought about creating a healthy vegan tiffin recipe? Its a biscuit type scottish chocolately goodness dessert thing 🙂

  24. Cait the Arty Runnerchick says

    you are just the cutest thing EVER!!! aww, and CONGRATS, girl!! i’m so happy for you, you’re such a talent in the kitchen and i just adore how you add such personality and positivity to your posts. been a long-time reader and drooler over here. so keep living you dream! you’re an inspiration to all of us in so many ways…mainly pursue your passion, do what you love, and embrace a healthy, happy lifestyle! keep on being you, girl. 🙂

  25. samantha says

    These look sooo good! This is definitely on the list for Sunday breakfast =o). I made mocha protein pancakes (inspired by this recipe but I didn’t have all the ingredients), no idea why I’d never thought of it before. I’m not so creative in the kitchen=/. You are too cute!

  26. Amanda says

    I’m getting really into cauliflower as a base ingredient for hidden veggies. I love what this website is trying to do by making them into pancakes, but I’d like to see a vegan option without eggs. I was also wondering if other flour such as coconut, chickpea or oat would work in these pancake recipes? Or any of the recipes for that matter! I love trying the recipes on your blog, thanks for posting them!

  27. Steph says

    Yum! Pancake stacks look soooo goood! I don’t really mind what flavour- as long as there yummy, fluffy pancakes! These look great!

  28. Judy says

    Just writing to say I love your site. I’ve made several of your recipes and they’ve all turned out great. That’s a testament to the quality of the recipes, not my cooking prowess. Looking forward to more! Judy

    Ps. Liked you on Facebook — did it for the vitamix, which I could really use, but would have done so earlier had I known you were there. My mistake!

  29. Diana says

    Made these for breakfast the other morning and they were absolutely delicious! My new go to pancake recipe!

  30. Julie C says

    How do they taste without the icing? I can’t have any alcohol (medical reasons) therefore have no idea how this is suppose to taste nor can I taste it (I will most definitely add the rum) My hubs LOVES tiramisu and his Bday is Monday so I thought your recipe would be a fun surprise breakfast for him but considered leaving off the icing and serving with pure VT maple syrup. Would that be gross?? Thanks as I really have no clue.

  31. Vicki Birch says

    Great recipe but did you know that toffuti has palm oil in it? I was shocked as went into health food shop to purchase some items as I am a new nearly vegetarian and to my disgust first product I picked up and read the label has palm oil in it and it is not stated anywhere that it is sustainable I was very disappointed. Can you use anything else as a substitute? Thanks.

  32. Glenn says

    Love to see new desert recipes! Years ago was in Lake Tahoe, and had the BEST pancakes ever. Duplicated w/bisquick and topped them off with pecans, raisins , and shredded coconut and real maple syrup. em emmmmmmmmmmm!

  33. Melissa says

    Omg! Love these pancakes!! I didn’t do your frosting and layered them with whipped cream and Nutella. I thought I was totally cheating while I ate these. I love all your recipes and I am not even vegan/ vegatarian. I used your recipes almost everyday! Peanut butter pancakes perhaps?

  34. Mandy says

    OMG! Make. These. Now.
    I just made these and they are incredible.
    I was skeptical the whole time until I tasted them and it’s like eating dessert for breakfast. Not too sweet, but just sweet enough. II used what I had in my kitchen, wheat flour, no coffee or oats, maple syrup, coconut milk, coconut oil, no. rum extract, yogurt I cream cheese, no tofu and powdered sugar. I would recommend doubling this recipe if making for two people. No need to double the frosting recipe. It makes just enough for two people. These were so filling I could only eat two of them. In love.

  35. Joey says

    Thanks for the great recipe, Katie! I plan on putting these on special this weekend.
    I’m sure these pancakes will be a smash hit, right up there with our Cafe Mocha pancakes. Here’s a recipe for your @Jules WolfItDown…
    Avenue Eatz Cafe Mocha Pancakes
    1/2c Ricotta
    1 1/2c Half and half (mixed with 1t white vinegar)
    3 eggs
    1t Vanilla
    2c Flour
    1t Baking powder
    1 1/2t Salt
    1/4c Sugar
    2T finely ground Espresso
    1T Cocoa powder
    1c powdered sugar
    1T Espresso
    1 1/2t Cocoa
    2T half and half

    Whisk liquid ingredients. Sift dry ingredients. Add liquid to dry. Cook immediately, top with glaze right after flipping once.

  36. Harriet says

    These are great! I like making things for my mum that looks AND taste great- and these hit the spot! I had to add quite a bit more flour to get a good consistency, and I used ricotta (not vegan I know!) for my filling. Perfect!

    Also- I live in Australia so maybe things are different- but what is a ‘silver dollar’? For me, this recipe made 5 10cm round pancakes. So what’s the 10-12 silver dollar bit?

  37. Sarah says

    What do you use if one can’t eat dairy (cream cheese) or tofu (soy) to make the cream cheese frosting? Thanks. Oh, I bought your cookbook and love it!

  38. Parker says

    Hey these look amazing, but do you have the nutrition facts for the frosting because I noticed that the nutrition facts don’t include to frosting. Thanks in advance to anyone that responds!

  39. Kayren says

    Currently eating these for dinner. I made them with a combination on ap, oat flour, and barley flour, and they are delicious!
    Katie, if you could come up with a recipe for panettone pancakes, that would be awesome 🙂

  40. Laura B says

    Just wow. Just made a double batch of these and they are amazing. I used whole wheat pastry flour since I ran out of spelt and they still came out wonderful. If you keep them sort of thick and don’t add extra milk, thet come out almost crunchy on the edge like a coffee oatmeal cookie! Couldn’t quite get the frosting to thicken up like the picture but it ended up better: it was thin like a cream which only made the tiramisu part even more authentic. Never had a bad recipe from your site, Katie. Can’t decide if these are better than the cinnamon roll pancakes…just can’t decide!

  41. Katie says

    My current favorite pancake recipe is this buckwheat one, which I make dairy free (but with pasture-raised local eggs). The pancakes are *divine* especially with some cinnamon! But they are also thin & I don’t think they could handle add-ins, so I’m looking through your recipes for pancakes that are soft and fluffy but ready for add-ins & toppings!! These look so good!
