Vegan Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Cinnamon Bun Pancakes

Pancake Batter Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp oil

Cinnamon Filling Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup

Vanilla “Icing” Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp vanilla almond milk

Side Note: If you don’t mind it not being vegan, add cream cheese and sugar to make the icing!


Prepare the pancake batter in a medium mixing bowl. Add all the wet ingredients first and combine. Then add the dry ingredients, 1/4 cup at a time, and mix thoroughly to ensure no clumps are formed.

For the cinnamon filling, combine the ingredients and place in a small Ziplock bag.

In a low-medium heated nonstick pan, add the pancake batter, and cut the tip of the Ziplock bag to draw cinnamon swirls into the pancake. Flip once many bubbles form (as many as can form to prevent a doughy texture).

Serve on a plate, and drizzle the mixed vanilla icing ingredients on top. Feel free to add maple or agave syrup to the top if you want more sweetness!
