Celebrate the fall season with this easy recipe for vegan apple pancakes! These pancakes are full of apples, cinnamon, and vanilla, and take less than 30 minutes to make.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup plant milk
  • 2 tablespoons applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup grated apple (about 1 apple)

Optional sauteed apple topping:

  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the wet ingredients (milk, applesauce, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract). Set aside.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt).
  3. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and stir until well-combined. Be careful not to over mix because your pancakes won't be as fluffy.
  4. Fold the grated apples into your pancake mixture. Let the mixture sit for about 5-10 minutes to rise.
  5. Preheat a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Once the pan is heated through, scoop 1/3 cup of the pancake mixture into the pan. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  6. Optional: To make the apple topping, combine the diced apple, water, butter, maple syrup, and cinnamon in a pan over medium heat. Sauté the apples for 15 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes, until the water has evaporated and the apples are fork-tender.


Store these pancakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days or in the freezer for up to three months.
