Gluten Free Vegan Pancakes — My Favorite Recipe

I have tried lots of Gluten Free Vegan Pancake recipes.  Some were interesting and some …. well, let’s just say, I never made them again.

Over the years, I have taken several different recipes and combined them together to make my own recipe.  Taking bits and pieces of each recipe to suit it to my tastes and nutritional requirements is actually a fun project!

When I developed this recipe, I started with the Apple Pancake recipe my mother used to make when I was younger.  I loved the tastes of apples in pancakes (or any kind of fruit in baked goods!).  Then I looked for Gluten Free ingredients and some extra tasty grains and seeds to add to the nutritional value.

Here is my recipe:

Gluten Free Vegan Apple Pancakes

Recipe Type: Breakfast
Author: Sandy Dell from GlutenFreeVeganLiving.com
Serves: 1 – 2
  • 1 medium apple, cored
  • 1 Tablespoon Chia/Salba seeds
  • 1/3 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup (or more) water
  • 1/2 cup Gluten Free biscuit or pancake mix
  • 1/3 cup dry Gluten Free oats
  • Coconut oil
  1. Put nuts and chia seeds in food processor and process until coarsely chopped. Remove and place into medium mixing bowl.
  2. Add apples to food processor and chop into small pieces
  3. Mix dry ingredients into nuts, seeds and apples. Add water and let the mixture sit for a few minutes while you warm the pan and melt the coconut oil.
  4. Pour batter (add more water if the mixture is too thick) into heated pan and cook 5 or so minutes until underside is a light brown.
  5. Flip and cook for another 3-5 minutes.
  6. Top with Coconut Nectar or Pure Maple Syrup


I would suppose you can substitute other fruit for the apple, but this is the way I like it best!!



Fruity Gluten Free Pancakes

Pancakes are a special favorite of mine.  I love to try different types and recipes — Gluten Free Vegan, of course!  I found this Fruity Gluten Free Pancake recipe on One Green Planet’s website and immediately fell in love with it.

In my standard recipe, I use lots of applesauce and do not add any extra liquid — which works out great.  But this recipe uses whole apples — and bananas too!  What a wonderful combination of flavors!!

Using fruit in recipes eliminates the need for adding sugar — a big plus in my book!!  With the fruit and the nuts along with the dry ingredients makes this a very nutritious pancake!

Fruity Gluten Free Pancakes
Recipe Type: Breakfast, Pancakes
Author: Marlymcmillen_ogpblogger
  • 1 medium apple, cored and chopped
  • 1 medium banana, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds, ground
  • ¼ cup raw almonds
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup gluten-free flour, (I used brown rice flour)
  • ⅓ cup dry oats
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • Vegetable spray
  1. Blend first 4 ingredients in a blender and let it sit for a few minutes
  2. Add the gluten-free flour and dry oats into the blender for a few seconds until everything is blended.
  3. Add baking soda, powder, and cinnamon, and vanilla. Add more water (or soy milk) if you think the mixture is too thick.
  4. Heat your pan or griddle over medium high heat. Spray some vegetable spray, and pour about 1/4 cup of this fruity pancake batter in the pan. Be sure to allow enough space between the pancakes. When you notice bubbles appearing on the top of the pancakes, flip them. It helps if you spray some veggie spray in the pan or griddle while the pancake on the spatula.


Since I am allergic to flax seeds and almonds, I would probably substitute Chia seeds and walnuts or pecans.  And I would top with Coconut Nectar Syrup — yummm …. I think I’ll go to the kitchen and whip up a batch of these for lunch!!


Gluten Free Waffles Recipe

Next to pancakes, Gluten Free Waffles are probably one of the number one favorite breakfast … or dinner meals!  Waffles, hot off the griddle, with that wonderfully crisp texture … smothered in syrup (coconut nectar syrup, of course!) …. And this recipe is vegan as well!!  Personally, I would use coconut or hazelnut milk, but almond will work great as well!

Homemade Waffles

3/4 cup almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
3 tablespoons water
3/4 cup gluten-free multi-purpose flour blend (I like King Arthur’s)
1/4 cup sweet white rice flour
2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
3 tablespoons xylitol (or regular granulated should be fine)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
fresh blueberries, strawberries, bananas or other fruit, for garnish
maple syrup

Macadamia Nut Pancake Recipe

Pancakes are breakfast comfort foods!  Put a twist on this with the following Macadamia Nut Pancake Recipe — Gluten Free and Vegan!  Added bonus is the bananas in this recipe.  Gluten Free Vegan Pancakes are so much more nutritious for you than the ‘white flour’ counterpart.   So many more wonderful ingredients.  See for yourself:

All we need to make this a complete meal is some coconut nectar — my favorite syrup!


Organic Gluten-Free Vegan Pancakes

Nothing sounds better for breakfast (or lunch or dinner for that matter!) than Organic Gluten-Free Vegan Pancakes!  The author gives detailed instruction on making the homemade almond milk — but did not include the instructions for the pancakes.  So, I guess we are on our own …. but I think, maybe, we can figure it out!!

Organic Gluten-Free Vegan Pancakes


Ingredients for the Organic Gluten-Free Vegan Pancakes:
– 2 cups homemade almond milk from organic almonds
– 2 cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour
– 4 tablespoons GoodBelly Probiotic Coconut Water
– 4 tablespoons cup of organic dried currants
– a little bit of Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil to “butter” the skillet
– no salt, no sugar necessary!


When I makes these Organic Gluten-Free Vegan Pancakes, I think I will use coconut milk rather than the GoodBelly Probiotic Coconut Water.  And coconut nectar is my favorite syrup!  If you are not familiar with these coconut products, here are some links:
