Gluten Free Dairy Free Cornmeal Pancakes with Cinnamon Apples Recipe

This post contains affiliate links.  I’m constantly looking for new recipe inspiration.  However, when I find a new dish to try, I rarely cook it exactly as is.  Instead, I tinker with it and change it to fit our dietary restrictions of being dairy and gluten free.  This week I stumbled upon a cornmeal pancakes with cinnamon apples recipe that I knew my family would love.  And, with several changes, it’s now a recipe we’ll add regularly to our meal rotation.

While this meal tastes delicious, it’s also made from basic ingredients that I regularly stock in my gluten free, dairy free pantry.  That means, especially in this time of inflation and high grocery prices, this is a frugal meal for my family.  While this is a low-cost recipe, it shines in taste and presentation.

Servings 3 people


Cinnamon Apples

  • 3 apples, small
  • 2 TBSP coconut sugar
  • 2 TBSP non-dairy butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 TBSP Bob's Red Mill One-to-One Gluten Free Flour

Cornmeal Pancakes

  • 3/4 cup almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 TBSP olive oil
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill One-to-One Gluten Free Flour
  • 1 TBSP coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda


  • Remove the seeds and the core from the apple, and then chop in small chunks.
  • In a pan on medium heat, add butter, coconut sugar, and cinnamon. When that is combined, stir in the apple chunks and coat well.
  • Turn the heat to medium-low and allow the cinnamon apples to cook for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • For the cornmeal pancakes, preheat a griddle or skillet lightly coated with oil
  • Whisk all wet ingredients for the pancakes in one bowl.
  • Whisk all dry ingredients for the pancakes in another, larger bowl.
  • Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until just combined.
  • Scoop 1/4 to 1/2 cup batter onto the griddle and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until bubble appear on the top of the pancakes. Flip and cook 1 to 2 more minutes.
  • If the sauce for your cinnamon apples is runny, sprinkle 1/2 TBSP Bob's Red Mill One-to-One gluten free flour over the apples and stir to incorporate. Within minutes the sauce should thicken to a syrup consistency.
  • Plate the pancakes and top with cinnamon apples. Enjoy!

We loved this recipe for breakfast, but this could also make a light dinner, or a heartier dinner if you add some bacon or a slice of ham.  Breakfast for dinner is a big hit around here, especially with this yummy gluten free dairy free Cornmeal Pancakes with Cinnamon Apples recipe.
