Delicious Gluten-Free Apple and Cinnamon Pancakes

Hi there! Did you actually notice that despite that the name of my blog is A Is For Apple, I’ve managed not to create any apple recipes yet? Not one! Zero! Nada! It is time to change it, today! And that is why I am introducing these delicious, most amazing Gluten-Free APPLE and Cinnamon Pancakes! Drumrolls please…. 🙂

To be honest, I don’t know how it came to be. I love apples. I mean, I have named my blog after an apple… Did you know that apples are a member of the rose family? That’s a fact! I wonder if that actually makes them roses? Probably not 🙂

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 12 pancakes


  • 2 medium-size apples cored, diced into small cubes, approximately 0.5 cm (0.2 inches)
  • 2 cups oat flour gluten-free
  • 2 tsp sugar I use organic raw sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk you can use any milk you have on hand
  • 1 egg I always use free-range eggs


  • Mix oats flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt together in the large bowl, Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together milk and egg.
  • Whisk in sugar and add wet ingredients to the bowl with dry ingredients. Stir gently until all ingredients are combined. Do not over stir. Add apples, stir gently. Leave the to thicken a little, around 10 minutes.
  • Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Coat with a little bit of olive or coconut oil. I use a special brush to spread the oil evenly.
  • Once the frying pan is hot add a tablespoon of batter to the pan. Cook about one minute until little bubbles start to build and edges look a bit dry.
  • Now flip pancakes and cook them on the other side for about two minutes, until cooked through.
  • Brush your frying pan with a little more oil for every new batch.
  • You can keep pancakes in the warm oven until the rest is ready to serve. Of course, they taste the best when just cooked. Enjoy!


If you have time, cook your diced apples with a tsp of butter and a tsp of organic brown sugar, until apples have softened a little. 4-5 minutes. That will make your pancakes taste EVEN better.
Once you have done the dough, wait 10 minutes before starting to cook them. If you cook them straight away your pancakes will be thin and crumbly. 
These apple and cinnamon gluten free pancakes make a perfect addition to a school lunch box or can be enjoyed as a healthy snack after school.
