Buckwheat Apple Pie Pancakes {Vegan, Gluten-Free}


Cooking Time




  • 2 Cups Buckwheat Flour
  • 1 Vegan Egg
  • 1 tablespoon Apple Pie Spice
  • 1 1/2 - 2 Cups Apple Cider
  • 1 Cup Applesauce
  • 1/2 Cup Maple Syrup
  • Vegan Butter


  1. In a medium-size bowl, mix together all of the ingredients except for the apple cider.
  2. Gradually add the apple cider and stir until the batter is the consistency of pancake batter.
  3. Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium heat.
  4. Melt a pat of vegan butter in the skillet.
  5. Add pancake batter to your desired size pancake. Gluten free pancakes will NOT bubble like normal pancakes - check for when the bottom is golden brown and then flip.
  6. Remove from the skillet when the other side is golden brown.
  7. Add another pat of vegan butter to the skillet in between batches.
  8. Serve with maple syrup.
