Apple Spice Pancakes

I am really excited to share with you guys this amazing Thanksgiving Collaboration I am apart of with three amazing girls who share the same passion of Vegan cooking as me. With Canadian Thanksgiving around the corner (October 10th) we paired up to share some amazing recipes with you guys that you can make to impress your guests on this special day! Today, Wednesday & Friday we will be sharing a different recipe with you that will “Wow” your family & friends tastes buds. 

To find the girls and their recipes, I will link you their blogs. 












So whether you are hosting Vegans, the only Vegan at your own house, or having a fully Vegan Thanksgiving, we hope these recipes will give you inspiration and will help you feel more at ease about scrambling to figure out which meals you would like to serve. 

These pancakes are obviously not meant for the main dinner, but could serve as a great brunch or a way to use up the leftover apples in your fridge! Apples are one food item that makes me so excited for fall and I cannot get enough of them. One recipe I love to make are pancakes and I thought combining the two would make the perfect recipe to help jumpstart your Thanksgiving day and help you get in that cozy Fall mood. 


The apple flavor is not overpowering, but is the perfect balance. The addition of Cinnamon adds the perfect Fall flavor that rounds out the entire recipe. These are also gluten, refined sugar and oil free. 

I also added a really nice apple toping that gives it more of a “pie” like feeling that is also extremely easy to make. img_5383

I hope you enjoy this recipe and look forward to new recipes this Wednesday & Friday for your Thanksgiving Feast! Don’t forget to check out the girls and some of the amazing recipes they’re doing as well.
