Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Hotcakes Recipe

Cook Time2 mins
Total Time2 mins


  • 1/2 cup stewed apples (if you don’t have any, just rough chop a large apple and stew it with 4-6 tablespoons water as needed to stop apples sticking and 1 tsp ground cinnamon for about 15 minutes on low heat in a saucepan. We don’t add sweeteners. Nature’s got it all in there already as intended. If you’re new to reducing added sugars, just give it a go.)
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp banana flour (available from health shops or use 2/3 cup of your gluten free flour of choice or spelt if not gluten free )
  • 1/2 cup almond or coconut milk
  • 2 pcs eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda or bicarb soda
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Set a frying pan to heat on medium with a knob of butter or coconut / avocado oil.
  • Mix all the ingredients with a spoon in a bowl until well combined. Leave to stand for a minute. If it’s super runny, just add a heaped tbsp whatever flour you’re using and stir it in)
  • Spoon onto pan once it’s up to a solid medium temperature and cook 2 minutes per side until deep brown.
  • Serve with whatever you have / enjoy. I served it as you can see, with stewed apples to which I added a little coconut cream, fresh strawberries and coconut yoghurt.
