Gluten-Free Cinnamon Apple Pancakes

#GlutenFree Apple Cinnamon #Pancakes
These Gluten-Free Apple Cinnamon Pancakes are the lightest and fluffiest pancakes I have had in a long time! The flavor of Cinnamon and Apple are a delicious combination with butter and maple syrup! I have to tell you this is my first time attempting a Gluten-Free Pancake batter, and I was thrilled with the results! I actually didn’t miss my old pancakes at all! I have a funny suspicion you won’t either!


  • 2 and 1/2 cups King Arthur Gluten Free All-Purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar in the raw
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2/4  teaspoon  xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon Badia brand cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Gala apple, cored and grated


Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, xanthan gum , cinnamon, and salt  in large mixing  bowl.

Mix together buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla in a separate  mixing bowl.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring  until combined.

Add grated Gala apple and fold in the batter.

Melt butter and add it to the batter, stirring gently to combine. Stir in more buttermilk if needed for thinning of batter.

Cook on a well oiled skillet over medium-low heat until pancakes are golden brown.

Notes: Be sure to check all spices before adding, as some spices do have traces of Gluten. I would recommend using a brand such as  Badia spices.  Badia spices are  Certified Gluten-Free which means they are tested and contain less than 10 ppm of gluten.



  1. One more thing, do you know a flour that contains Xathan Gum? Just thought it might make thing s a little more easy.


  2. I have been looking for some Gluten Free recipes for Pancakes. SO far I have not had much luck. It’s annoying sometimes how the recipes turn out. I really am looking forward to trying this one with apple and cinnamon !


    • You and me both Katherine. So many recipes are crumbly when baking gluten free. Or extremely heavy! Gluten-Free Cinnamon Apple Pancakes will come out light and fluffy! Let me know how you like them!!
