Fluffy Vegan Pancakes made with applesauce, gluten-free oats, and not a single banana. Add toppings or mix-ins for endless easy healthy breakfast stacks!


  • 1/2 cup (120g) unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup (120g) nondairy milk
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 12 tbsps maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup (150g) oat flour 
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Whisk together the applesauce, nondairy milk, maple syrup, lemon juice, and vanilla.
  2. Add the dry ingredients. Stir to combine (don’t over mix just until all the lumps are gone).
  3. Heat a non-stick skillet over low heat.
  4. Scoop about 1/4 cup of batter per pancake into the pre-heated pan.
  5. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until the edges are starting to brown. Flip. Cook another 4-5 minutes. Take your time, low and slow is really the secret here.
  6. Repeat until all the batter is gone (I usually get 6-8 pancakes per batch)
  7. Top with fruit, maple syrup, chocolate chips, etc. Enjoy!
