Servings 2 8 medium pancakes or 12 silver dollars


  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted can substitute butter
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar *YES THIS IS CORRECT!*
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons blackstrap molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup plain unsweetened non-dairy milk, (almond rice, dairy; whatever you like)
  • Pure maple syrup to serve


  • In a large bowl stir together the coconut oil (or butter), apple sauce, vinegar, maple syrup, molasses and vanilla extract. Beat in the eggs. Don't worry if the melted coconut oil solidifies when combined with cold ingredients; just make sure everything is well mixed together.
  • Add the oat flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, and cinnamon to the wet ingredients, mixing well to combine. Pour in the milk, mixing again until all the ingredients are well incorporated and well combined. If the batter seems too thick add a splash more milk to thin it out.
  • Heat a heavy skillet or nonstick griddle over medium-low heat. Once the pan is hot, lightly oil the cooking surface with butter or coconut oil. Ladle or pour ¼ cup batter onto the pan for each pancake, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Let the pancakes cook until small bubbles form on the tops and the underside is golden, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Once the bottom side has cooked sufficiently, flip and cook for another couple of minutes or so, until golden brown on both sides. Serve the pancakes immediately or keep warm in a 200 degree oven. To serve, drizzle with warm maple syrup and enjoy.
