These vegan apple cinnamon pancakes are so light and delicious, you’d never guess they are free of eggs and dairy! The perfect breakfast to enjoy with your family on Saturday morning.
Don’t you love the weekend? You can slow down a little and enjoy a nice breakfast.
These vegan apple cinnamon pancakes are the perfect weekend breakfast. I love to make vegan pancakes or waffles on the weekend and these apple cinnamon pancakes are so good!
I especially like to add a little more flavor to my pancakes in the fall. Whether it’s apple cinnamon, or pumpkin, or chocolate chips…these are all good additions in my book.
These vegan apple cinnamon pancakes are really easy to make, and they get pretty light and fluffy, which is wonderful, because sometimes egg free pancakes can be a little chewy, which is not my favorite quality in a pancake.

Vegan Apple Cinnamon Pancakes.
Yummy vegan apple cinnamon pancakes are a wonderful weekend breakfast option.
- 1 cup spelt flour
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1 ½ Tablespoons sugar
- ⅓ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup non-dairy milk
- 2 Tablespoons melted vegan buttery spread plus more for the pan
- ¼ cup unsweetened apple sauce
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Put the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk together with a fork.
Add the wet ingredients, stir. Let everything sit for a few minutes until the batter starts to rise.
Meanwhile, you should be heating your frying pan and about a tablespoon of buttery spread over medium heat. We have an electric stove and I put it at about 5. The secret to good pancakes, (not just these) is to get your pan nice and hot before you spoon the batter in.
When the butter is melted and the pan is good and hot, spoon your batter in, and turn the heat down a tad, to medium low. Once the edges of the pancake look done, and you see a few little bubbles forming in the pancakes, flip them over. DON’T WANDER AWAY! I am a big multi-tasker, and I just cannot leave the pancake pan when cooking. They will burn. Believe me, I’ve done it many a time.
Once done, remove from pan and add more buttery spread as needed for the next round.
Serving size is two small pancakes.
These vegan apple cinnamon pancakes are:
- perfect for a family breakfast
- great when topped with maple syrup or powdered sugar
- easy to make, and so fluffy!
Enjoy with your favorite maple syrup, cinnamon sugar, or chopped apples on top!
These are not gluten free, since they are made with spelt, which although it is lower in gluten, is not gluten free. If you are looking for a gluten free pancake recipe, I posted one here.
Thank you Kelly for the recipe. My daughter and I just made these panckakes, Delicious.
Regards Jodie & Brooke :)
Loved the pancakes. Served them today for my son’s 26th birthday breakfast. Topped with fresh strawberries and bananas, by far my favorite pancake recipe yet. (Vegan and Traditional)
Love ’em, kid loves’ em = success!
I used unbleached all purpose flour, one small grated apple instead of apple sauce (still around 1/4 cup) vanilla, cinnamon and a small amount of ground chia and these turned out Very tender I am really happy with this recipe! My vegan pancakes are almost always dense and rubbery but these were a great texture.
So happy to hear that!

Girl these were delicious. I tweaked a few things though. I added a little bit more flour, a tsp more applesauce and cinnamon. By far best pancakes I have ever had. Thank you this is great. I have been a vegan for a long time and this recipe has a lot of little changes you can make to it. For instance this would be an excellent crepe recipe. Lol hint hint….
I use this recipe a lot, thank you! It would really be helpful if the ingredients were listed in the order they are used. The dry ingredients come first, but they are scattered through the ingredient list. It just makes things a bit easier. It is easy to miss something when ingredients are out of order.
Good point, I need to double check some of these older recipes. I will make that change!
Made these this morning for my mom and me and they turned out AMAZING! Super moist, yummy, and very easy to prepare. Only changes I made were using less sugar and adding some crushed walnuts and flax seed meal. These satisfied our urge for some pancakes and they delivered, without the use of cruel, unhealthy animal products. Will definitely ne making these again :)
So glad you loved them! Thank you for telling me!
These were great. I replaced the flour with a gluten free flour & used it in a waffle iron. My kids loved them! We had them for my two year old’s birthday brunch.
I’m so glad to hear that! Thanks for letting me know! :)
Awesome recipe and the pancakes are beautiful and fluffy! I will say though, I only managed to make 4 pancakes (15cm rounds) with this which barely feeds two people! Especially if you’re planning to feed boys I’d recommend at least doubling the recipe for ‘serves’!
So glad they worked for you!
Pancakes are one of my favorite foods to experiment with since becoming vegan. These turned out AMAZING! Thank you so much for the recipe!
Yay! I am so happy you love them! Thanks for sharing!
I tried these several times and they are just delicious (even non-vegans loved them and will make them again!)
Thank you :)
Fantastic! Thanks for letting me know!
I’m not sure what I did wrong, but when I tried to make these they stuck to the pan and turned to mush. Pan was nice and hot when I spooned in the batter? What a disappointment :(
I’m sorry you had that experience! I just made these the other day and did not have any problems. What type of flour did you use? Did you use enough oil in the pan?
Do you think i would be able to use any regular flour such as all purpose or wholemeal? and would i also be able to sub oil for the butter?
Is lowercase t tsp and uppercase T tbsp?
They look fantastic! Just wondering, could this recipe also be used in a waffle iron as well?
I have not tried them in a waffle iron, but it might be just fine! Please let me know how it turns out if you try it!
They look so tasty! Feeling very hungry all of a sudden
Thank you, Hannah!
These look delicious! Now I want to have pancakes for dinner :-)
Sounds good to me! :)

These sound so good! I just emailed this recipe to my vegan mom : )
Thanks, Natalie! I hope she enjoys them!
