Fluffy and moist gluten free and dairy free cinnamon applesauce pancakes!


  • 1 cup gluten free all purpose flour (can sub regular AP flour if you don’t need gluten free)*
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened cinnamon applesauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 24 tbsp milk of choice (regular or dairy free), as needed
  • Butter or coconut oil, for the pan


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together your flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and sea salt.
  2. Mix in your applesauce, egg, coconut sugar, and vanilla extract until everything is well combined. Add your milk of choice as needed, until batter is still slightly thick but pourable.
  3. Allow batter to sit while you heat a skillet or pan over medium heat. Add butter or coconut oil to the griddle, then spoon out about 1/3 cup batter per pancake. Allow to cook for 2-4 minutes per side, until browned and edges start to dry. Serve with toppings of choice and enjoy!


Be sure to use a gluten free flour blend that contains xanthan gum. I recommend King Arthur, Bob’s Red Mill (the blue bag), or Cup-4-Cup. Substituting with something like almond or oat flour will not yield the same results!
