I simply adore pancakes and these Apple Cinnamon Pancakes are my lifesavers after no longer being able to tolerate eggs or dairy. My two always used to enjoy Pancake Day every Tuesday in our hose growing up, I’d pick them up from nursery at lunch time and they’d leave the staff green with envy when they would exclaim excitedly ‘Yay! Pancake Day’!
We still have pancakes of a frequent basis as this is still one of Lewis’ favourite foods, I couldn’t miss out, as I myself am a huge pancake fan so it was important to me that I developed a quick and simple recipe so that I could enjoy eating pancakes with the family. That was when I created my Apple Cinnamon Pancakes and I’ve been a happy mummy ever since, never feeling as if I’m missing out.
Different ways to serve these Apple Cinnamon Pancakes
In the image is this post I’ve decided to enjoy my Apple Cinnamon Pancakes with a handful of blueberries, a drizzle of maple syrup and a splodge of dairy free ice cream. Other ways I love to eat them is with slices of banana and a dark chocolate syrup. Strawberries and dark chocolate are a delicious combination so too is making a quick stewed fruit compote out of a chopped diced apple, a few sultanas dribble of water and a pinch of cinnamon. To be fair, the possibilities are endless, get creative.

Now it’s my turn to show you how I make my Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Pancakes. I had the idea on Monday, tested it out all day on Tuesday, perfected it and filmed it on Thursday, so here you have it; Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Egg Free Apple Cinnamon Pancakes.
These simple to make American style pancakes are perfect for those following a gluten free diet and are also intolerant or allergic to dairy or eggs. So versatile, they go with a whole manner of exciting toppings, let you imagination run wild.
- 50 g apple puree
- 80 g gluten free self raising flour I used Free From Fairy SR Flour
- 80 ml dairy free milk I used almond milk
- 20 ml cold water
- 2 tsp maple syrup
- 0.5 tsp cinnamon
- I always have cooking apples in the freezer so was able to cook up some fresh and puree them, if you don't have any cookers to hand you can use apple pie filling or puree from a jar.
- Add all the ingredients to a blender or a smoothie mixer and whizz for 30 seconds until completely blended.
- Heat a good trustworthy frying pan and if necessary add a teeny bit of oil (I use coconut, but to be fair my pan doesn't need to be oil for this type of pancake)
- Pour a dollop of mixture into the centre of the pan, you're aiming for a circle the size of a drinks coaster!
- Fry until the topside appears dry and all the tiny air bubbles have popped.
- Flip the pancake over and fry for about 30 seconds
- Repeat until all the mixture is used up; approx 8 times
For topping ideas you can drizzle with maple syrup or another favourite sauce. I personally love a scoop of dairy free ice cream on top so it melts down the side of your pancake stack - enjoy!
