Dry Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond milk or any dairy-free milk
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon ghee, butter, or coconut oil to coast skillet

Apple Topping

  • 2 apples peeled, cored, and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or more as desired
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Whisk all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk all of the wet ingredients. Then, add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until well combined.
  • Heat a skillet or griddle on medium-high heat and coat with ghee, butter or coconut oil.
  • Spoon the batter onto the skillet, keeping your pancakes approximately 3-4 inches in diameter. Let them cook for 2-3 minutes on one side, then flip and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  • While the pancakes are cooking, make the apple topping in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the chopped apples, butter or ghee, maple syrup, and cinnamon to the pot and let it simmer 10-12 minutes, or until the apples are soft.
  • Serve immediately with the apple topping poured over the pancakes.


  • You could use any milk in this recipe, including my cashew milk, almond milk or hemp milk
  • Each serving is 2 pancakes, so this recipe makes a total of 12 pancakes.
  • If you love my electric griddle (as I do), it's this ceramic griddle that's PFOA-free.
