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.

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!

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.

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! 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.

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)

Apple Pie Pancakes (Healthy & Gluten Free)

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Total Time:
Serves: 7-8
Category: Breakfast
  • 1 1/4 cups oat flour (or oats ground in a food processor or in a coffee grinder)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons greek 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.

  1. OMG this post is stunnnning!!! The photos are so gorgeous and I love the gif! YAYYYYY! So excited for you Jessica! Your blog looks better and better and blows me away! How do you get so much blur in the background, you use a special lens or just aperture?

    • Jessica says:

      Thanks so much Sophia! Aww. Re the blur, my aperture is set at f1.4 which helps to create the blur, and then I keep my shutter speed around 300 to help with lighting and so it focuses.

      • Danielle says:

        Hi hun, this is my family’s favorite and sadly the list of ingredients had been deleted. Can you help

        • Jessica says:

          Hi Danielle,

          Thanks for letting me know! It’s been re-added, sorry about that we were having some plugin issues.

  2. Loving the new blog design – it looks great 🙂
    Yum, these sound so good. Flourless pancakes are one of my favourite breakfasts.

  3. Immaculate says:

    Love your new website Jessica! It’s so Beautiful , Clean ,Fresh… and professional! The recipe index is well put together. You should be proud of yourself!

    • Jessica says:

      Thanks so much Immaculate!! I have to of course also thank my designer and blog technician for the upkeep :)!

  4. I love the new site, Jessica! It looks so nice! I also really love these pancakes!! I’ve been trying to cut back on processed foods and sugars lately too, so I always love reading recipes like this! Pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast foods and I can’t wait to make these ones!

  5. You new site is beautiful, Jessica, and I LOVE your tagline. These pancakes look so delicious and I love how you used ground oats in place of flour. Going to have to make these soon, I already have all the ingredients! 🙂

    • Jessica says:

      Thank you so much Ashlyn! The tagline took us two months to settle on haha! 🙂 I hope you enjoy these pancakes, I know I loved them!

  6. Oh wow these look so fantastic I can’t even stand it! Wow!

  7. First of all the new site looks so beautiful!!!! It’s amazing! And I love this recipe. healthy and looks good 🙂

  8. Jessica, the blog design turned out FABULOUS! Love love all the color combo and fonts you chose! And obv I’m in love with the new name! 🙂 And these pancakes?! Girl, you just reminded me why I love fall food so much. These pancakes just scream “chilly mornings” and “eat-warm-pancakes-til-you’re-stuffed”.
    Loving that last gif too! 🙂

    • Jessica says:

      Thanks so much Sarah!! The design is all I could’ve asked for and WAY more. Haha yes I’m soo in a fall mood!

  9. Your new design is beautiful, Jessica! And these pancakes…wow! I can’t believe they’re flourless. They look AMAZING! Definitely pinning for the future!

  10. Cailee says:

    YUM! These look so delicious!! What a great recipe for fall…or any season!! 🙂 Love it!!

  11. These look yummy Jessica. I was hoping to try this on the weekend but with so many other recipes to add to the list and given how appetising they look I like try this on Thursday.

  12. Kindra says:

    These look delicious! Would you happen to know how many carbs are in this recipe? I have gestational diabetes and these look like they could work for me but I need to know the carb count. Thanks so much!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Kindra, I don’t actually. I do know that oats are excellent complex carbs though, and the rest of the ingredients would be pretty low. I hope that helps!

  13. Congratulations on the new name Jessica! So exciting! And what a great healthy recipe to start with!!! Did you notice that the apples in the background look like a heart??? Girl, I’d say that’s a good sign – even your photography and new site love the name!!! Cheers!

  14. love that the pancakes are flourless.. i definitely need to try this recipe out!

  15. Yum. This looks delicious. I love the stop action effect too. Popped oveer here from another site and I’m happy to have clicked over.

    I’m going to take some time to look around some more.

    Enjoy your day,


  16. Azu says:

    Love pancakes made with different ingredients other than all-purpose flour. The recipe has been pinned.

  17. Lauren says:

    These look delicious Jessica! Oats and apples are two of my favorite foods, and I bet my kids would love these too! 🙂

  19. Love the new site, it looks gorgeous Jessica! And I’m definitely loving these pancakes, I’ve been trying to cut back on flour too and these pancakes sound perfect! Love that pouring action gif too 🙂

  20. Jess, I’m in love with your new site. Everything is so beautiful, modern and clean. I need to make myself some oat flour because I’m in awe of how fluffy and perfect these pancakes look! Lord knows I need to cut out refined flour and sugars from my diet (but I loooooooove carbs ‘n desserts so much!). You’ll be my go-to for healthy AND delicious recipes from now on, starting with this one! Love your photos – they’re absolutely beautiful. The lighting is unreal!

    • Jessica says:

      Thanks so much Nancy!! Yes everything in moderation 🙂 and so glad I can be that resource now! I’ll ensure I live up to that expectation 🙂 P.S. I’ve got to thank my designer for the perfect looking site!

  21. maureen levin says:

    anyone know how many calories per pancake or for the whole batch

  22. Ashley says:

    These are so good! Even my four year old loved them, I told him they were “oatmeal cookie pancakes,” which is what they smell like! I will definitely be making them again soon!

  23. Rachel says:

    These look delicious, but I’m wondering if you have any non dairy substitute suggestions for the Greek yogurt.

    • Jessica says:

      Hey Rachel, I do know there are many vegan greek yogurts, but I’m not sure what else to tell you. I suppose if you used the equivalent amount of mashed bananas it would work.

    • Ashley says:

      I have made these three times now (I love them!) with a ground flax seed “egg” substituting the egg and using 2T full fat coconut milk (from a can) in place of the greek yogurt and they turn out just perfect!

      • Jessica says:

        Hi Ashley,

        Wonderful!! Thanks for the vegan conversion and soo glad you love them!!

  24. Angie says:

    Eating these now!!! They are amazing!!!

  25. najeebaansar says:

    it is so nice visit my blog too

  26. Oh my gosh, these sound and look amazing!!! Happy apple season!!!

  27. Tom H says:

    What a great recipe! Just made these, and they are fantastic! I did add a few tablespoons of applesauce to the mix. Thank so much!

    • Jessica says:

      So glad you enjoyed them Tom!! Thanks for the feedback and you’re definitely welcome. 🙂

    • Jessica says:

      Love the idea of adding applesauce – I must try that! Thanks!

  28. Liz says:

    YUM!!! I just made these and they are AWESOME!!! Not fluffy like in the pic but maybe if I added more baking powder. But I also added applesauce because I had no apples. They are my new fav!!!! Thank you!!!

  29. Ilene Miller says:

    Jessica, these pancakes sound so so delicious – Just wondering, how many calories in each pancake and how many carbs? I can’t wait to make them!!! Thanks for the recipe!

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Ilene,

      I’m sorry I’m just getting back to you! I don’t know the exact measurement for them but they are very low in carbs and calories per pancake as compared to regular pancakes. I hope that helps!

  30. Kim says:

    These pancakes are amazing. We have made them 2 weekends in a row and the whole family loves them! My 3 year old eats them and my husband who has to eat gluten free because he’s allergic to wheat! Delicious and we know they’re healthy! Thanks for the yummy recipe! 🙂

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Kim,

      So glad your family loves them!! You’re so welcome and thank you for the feedback!

  31. Oh my sweet heavens. These pancakes are to die for! I am making these tomorrow!

  32. Monki says:

    I made your recipe and it was great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I couldn’t belive it was so yummy!
    I’ve been looking for this kind of recipe for a long time.
    Thank youuuu

    Totally follower from now on

    • Jessica says:

      Hi Monki,

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

  33. 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!

    • Jessica says:

      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.

  34. Jennie says:

    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!

  35. Alamia says:

    i like your Flourless Apple Pie Pancakes tutorial

  36. 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.

  37. WoW……………………………
    I try this today ……………
    I think it’s very fantastic
    To eat………………………..
