Wow, my first new post under Jessica in the Kitchen. It’s kind of like a dream come true you know? I’ve been waiting for this moment for such a long time and it’s finally here. Thank you for all your positive feedback – it’s helped with the butterflies! Enough about my excitement for right now – I need to tell you about these apple pie pancakes! Two words: new favourite.

Three pancakes stacked on a white plate.

I’ve been trying to cut down on any processed foods inclusive of white flour and sugars, and I also want to bring this forth to the blog. I promise – I don’t eat anything that I don’t love, and Mr. Bakes is also the second tester so I can guarantee there are only delicious recipes here.

That being said, I knew whole wheat flour wouldn’t taste that great because I’ve been there and then I was like wait, how about oats? 15 minutes later – since I decided to over grind a TON of oats, I had amazing, soft and airy oat flour. I’ll share how to make homemade oat flour another day, but it’s as simple as adding ¼ cup of oats at a time to reveal almost twice the amount of oat flour in seconds. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and you’re ready to make these healthy gluten free apple pie pancakes.

Fork cutting in to stack of pancakes. I was a little skeptical at first, I mean come on I just changed my favourite pancake recipe to have NO white flour in there or processed sugars! But they came out soft, fluffy, and filled with so much flavour! Like seriously, it’s as if the homemade flour had so much more flavour in itself, and created pancakes that were solid on their own in terms of texture.

Let’s not forget the apples that get caramelised when being cooked when you flip the pancakes – deliciously soft and sweet. It doesn’t really get much better than this! This is my new favourite pancake recipe, hands down.

These Healthy Gluten Free Apple Pie Pancakes are only 100 calories, made with ground oats, filled with delicious caramelised apples and are so healthy & easy to make!

P.S. top these healthy gluten free apple pie pancakes with some more caramelised apples (just pop them onto your griddle for a few minutes and sprinkle with cinnamon) , greek yogurt and drizzle some honey on top – heaven! I was more concerned with devouring these then photographing them, but deciding I had to share them, and just in time for the fall season that’s slowly but surely approaching!

These would also make a quick and easy breakfast for those soon-to-come back busy school mornings (don’t I know it – my little brother goes back in two weeks!) and are so easy to freeze (more directions in the recipe below) and pop in the toaster the next day.

P.S. Here are some of the items I used to make this recipe if you’d like to use them too:

Apple Pie Pancakes (Healthy & Gluten Free)

These Healthy Gluten Free Apple Pie Pancakes are only 100 calories, made with ground oats, filled with delicious caramelised apples and are so healthy & easy to make!
by: Jessica in the Kitchen
Prep Time 8 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 18 minutes
Servings 7 servings
Course Breakfast
Cuisine American
  • 1 1/4 cups oat flour or oats ground in a food processor or in a coffee grinder
  • 1 flax egg
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons thick vegan yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 apple sliced


  • In a large bowl, add the oat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Add the remaining pancake ingredients except the apple and whisk until just combined. Heat a griddle pan or a cast iron skillet over medium heat and grease with oil or cooking spray.
  • Pour the batter into a liquid measuring cup, then pour about 1/4 cup's worth for one pancake. Wait until some bubbles start to form and then add a few apple slices on top. Allow to cook for 2 more minutes and then flip the pancakes over. Cook for about 3 more minutes until batter is cooked through.
  • Serve pancakes hot and drizzle honey on top and some caramelised apples.
This recipe is gluten free.
You can use a flax egg or a banana to replace the egg, maple syrup instead of honey, and coconut cream or vegan yogurt instead of the greek yogurt.
Store these pancakes stacked with wax or parchment paper in between each one in an airtight tupperware container in the fridge. If freezing, store them in a freezer-safe zipped bag with wax or parchment paper in between each other. Store them flat to freeze. They last very long in the freezer!
You can use pears or even plums in place of the apples.

      Hi Monki,

      I’m so glad you enjoyed my pancakes! You’re very welcome and thanks for the feedback!

  3. Bek says:

    This recipe sounds amazing! I can’t wait to make these.

    Your title is really misleading, though. These pancakes are made with oat flour, so they’re not flourless. Gluten free and wheat free, yes, but not flourless. You might consider changing the title of this post to reflect the real recipe. Otherwise, sounds delicious!

      Hi Bek!

      Thank you for your feedback! I used the term so that people would know that there isn’t white or whole wheat flour in the recipe. I ground oats myself and so I could’ve put “ground oats” as the ingredients in the recipe but put the actual word “flour” so that they could know what consistency it should be.

    I ran out of my regular all purpose flour and tried your recipe this morning. Didn’t have Greek Yogurt so I used mashed bananas instead. Woot woot! Loving it! Will use this recipe from now on. Thank you, Jessica!

    i like your Flourless Apple Pie Pancakes tutorial

  6. Greg Goetz says:

    I used Cashew milk and diced the apples and added it to the batter before pouring into skillet. I thought it could use more cinnamon, but other than that, not to bad.

  7. Mira says:

    Saving the video to make to it during the week! I love oat pancakes ?

    LOVE this recipe. They are so light and delicious, the perfect pancake. I think the baking soda in the written instructions was a typo just a heads up. But otherwise it was a dream of a recipe!!!! 🙂
