These vegan gluten free pancakes are all I dream about. They’re lightly sweetened with homemade apple sauce and have less than 5 ingredients.
The excitement over this simple breakfast is unreal. I haven’t hit you guys with a pancake recipe for a while now so, when I got my hands dirty in the kitchen I couldn’t wait to hit publish! These pancakes are beyond easy to make and take less than 5 minutes to whip up. Plus, they have less than 5 ingredients and an optional sweetener if you need little something something.
Finding GOOD vegan gluten free pancakes has proven a feat which is why I made you this recipe. Even better, they don’t fall apart, crumble or taste like cardboard which is always a win in our home!
The consistency is perfectly fluffy with a little crisp on the outer edges. Top it off with coconut yogurt, something crunchy and pure maple syrup and nobody will know they’re gluten free!
What you’ll need
coconut sugar *optional
maqui powder *optional
These pancakes though…
These vegan gluten free pancakes are sweetened with a bit of coconut sugar and apple sauce. You can leave out the coconut sugar (like me) or dump it in, it’s unrefined and delicious. The coconut sugar gives the pancakes a caramel(y) taste, it’s magical. Cassava flour holds the cakes together and gives them a fiber boost. Almond milk adds a touch of creaminess to the recipe while keeping it dairy free. I chose an almond milk that’s free of gums, sugar, additives or soy lecithin.
Now, let’s get to the best part of the recipe: the sprouted corn flour. Corn is not an item we have in our house, ever. I don’t like corn for many reasons but when I stepped out and tried this flour I was shocked. No gut pain, no bloating and no nausea. I can dig it. One Degree Organic makes products from clean organic ingredients. All of their ingredients come from trusted farmers with 100% transparency.
One of their coolest features is that you can scan/type the code from the back of your product and see exactly where it came from. Truly farm-to-table.
More on One Degree Organic
My favorite thing about One Degree Organic is that everything e v e r y t h i n g is sprouted. Seeds, grains and nuts contain an anti-nutrient called phytic acid. Phytic acid blocks the absorption of important minerals and nutrients like calcium, zin, iron and magnesium. This anti-nutrient also blocks our enzymes from breaking down our food; talk about bloating and digestive issues! Sprouting increases the nutrient density of foods by 6-10 times. Additionally, researches said it even gives food a unique flavor. Sign me up for everything sprouted!
Okay okay, enough geeking out over their sprouted goodies. Let’s get to the vegan gluten free pancakes already!
