Brighten your morning with these tasty and healthy Vegan Apple Buckwheat Pancakes topped with cinnamon sugar apples! An 100% whole grain, gluten-free and kid-friendly recipe.



For the pancakes

  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed + 6 tbsp water
  • 1 cup Pamela's buckwheat pancake mix
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted (or oil of choice)
  • 1/2 cup apple cider (can sub almond milk)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg

For the topping:

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 medium apples cored and diced
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • Coconut whipped cream and pure maple syrup, for topping if desired


  1. Stir together flax and water in a small bowl. Set aside to gel for 5 minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together pancake mix, coconut oil, apple cider, almond milk, cinnamon, and flax mixture until just combined. It should be thick. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, melt coconut oil for topping in a medium skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add apples, sautéing for about 5 minutes or until softened. Add sugar, cinnamon and salt, stirring for a couple more minutes until combined. Set aside.
  4. Heat pancake skillet sprayed with cooking spray over medium heat. Once hot, add 1/4 cup of pancake batter at a time. Once several bubbles form and bottom is set, flip and cook another couple minutes or until set (they should be easy to flip). Repeat with the rest of batter.
  5. Serve with apple mixture, pure maple syrup, and coconut whipped cream.
