  • 1 ¼ cup whole wheat flour (or all-purpose flour)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup oat milk (or any milk alternative)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • cup apple butter


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, brown sugar, and salt.
  2. Create a well in the center and add the oat milk, egg, vanilla, olive oil, cinnamon, and apple butter. Whisk the egg in the center, then stir to combine all the ingredients.
  3. Let the pancake batter rest for 5-10 minutes while you preheat a griddle to 350 degrees.
  4. Pour the pancake batter onto the griddle to the size you prefer. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on the first side, then flip and cook another 2-3 minutes, until the pancake is golden brown and cooked through. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • As an alternative to a griddle, you can cook these in a non-stick skillet over medium low heat.
  • These pancakes are a bit more sensitive to high heat, and can burn on the outside quicker than normal pancakes. If you notice they’re browning too quickly, reduce the heat on the griddle to 325 degrees (or on your skillet to low).
