There’s nothing as delicious as pancakes on a chilly January morning. And when the pancakes are vegan, gluten-free, and chock-full of applesauce and pecans, they’re even better!

These pancakes are fluffy but robust, packed with flavor, and so filling! Plus, they’re super easy to make. Just combine the ingredients in one medium-sized bowl, heat up your frying pan, and away you go! You can serve these pancakes plain or top them with extra pecans, maple or agave syrup, the fruit of your choice, shredded coconut sprinkles, vegan butter or margarine, etc. A perfect breakfast!

1 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour

Combine the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Slowly add in the applesauce and plant milk, stirring continuously to avoid lumps.

Add in the pecans or walnuts if you so desire. Stir everything until it’s thoroughly combined. Batter should be fairly robust and thick, due to the addition of the applesauce, and slightly bubbly, due to the baking soda. Add more flour if it’s too thin, or more plant milk if it’s too thick.

Warm a frying pan on your stovetop and either spritz it with coconut spray (our favorite) or pour in a bit of olive oil (or other oil of your choice). Keep the burner on a low to medium heat setting and pour a small dollop of batter into the pan. We like to use an ice cream scoop for this purpose, because it ensures that the pancakes will be the perfect size.

When your pancake starts to bubble in the middle, flip it with a spatula and fry the other side. Depending on your burner’s heat setting, this shouldn’t take longer than 3-5 minutes on each side.

Scoop up your pancake and put it on a plate. Garnish it as desired. Repeat the frying steps until the batter is gone or you’re no longer hungry.

Makes about 6 delicious pancakes. They’re so yummy that you might be tempted to eat them all. Better get some help, because these flapjacks don’t store well in the refrigerator. They’re best hot and fresh. Enjoy your breakfast!
