Cinnamon Apple Pancakes

95 cal, 14C/3F/3P/5S.

A healthy stack of fluffy Cinnamon Apple Pancakes that will make your kitchen smell like Fall heaven on a weekend!

Is it cinnamon apple or apple cinnamon? I don’t know and don’t really care as long as both those ingredients are in my breakfast! These healthy pancakes are made with oats and whole grains, they’re refined sugar free and dairy-free. So even if you eat half the stack in one sitting I guarantee you’ll feel great afterwards! I’ll leave the serving size up to you 😋


  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup white whole wheat or all purpose flour (60 g)
  • 1/2 cup quick oats (40 g)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (120 g)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (120 g)
  • 1 tbsp any oil (I used avocado oil) (15 g)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey (21 g)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • dash of salt and vanilla extract
  • 1 medium apple finely chopped (save a couple slices and cook them for garnish if you like!)

Makes 8. Blend together egg, applesauce, milk, oil and syrup. Whisk together flour, oats, salt, cinnamon, baking powder. Mix the two until just combined. Fold in chopped apple. Pour heaping 1/4 cup batter on a greased pan, flip and brown both sides. Serve with greek yogurt (I like to whip it a bit first) and a drizzle of maple syrup. 🍁

Hope you enjoy this recipe for your Fall breakfasts and tag me on instagram with your pictures! ❤

Hi I'm Elif! I'm a mama, computer science PhD and Google engineer by day, food blogger by night. I love beautiful desserts that not only taste amazing, but also leave you feeling amazing. I use my math skills and interest in nutrition to carefully optimize my recipes to use simple, good-for-you ingredients and minimal amount of added sugar. I believe that healthy desserts can be simple. Recipes should not send you searching for rare ingredients, untested sweeteners or measuring ridiculous 1/2 tsp of butter. Here we use few ingredients, basic measuring cups, spoons, and simple fruit, veg, little sugar and syrup as sweeteners. Most recipes here use so little added sugar that they're good enough for toddlers. I also believe that you should be able to fit healthy sweets into your daily routine. No matter how much almond flour and coconut oil is in a healthy dessert recipe, there's no way I'm going to ingest a meal's worth of energy and a day's worth of total sugar from dessert alone. And that is the reason all my desserts have less than 200 cal per serving and are low-sugar. So now will you join us?
