Ok, I know it’s not apple season yet, but I just can’t wait until fall to dig into some apples. I’ve been buying gala apples by the 5lb bag and can’t seem to make them last long enough. I cannot wait until we can go apple-picking and grab some fresh ones – hopefully we can actually make that happen this year.

Anyways, I’m all about some apple and these pancakes include it in not one, but three ways. Feel free to stick to just one, but why stop there when you can get triple the apple action? I may have called them “buttermilk” pancakes, but don’t be fooled – these pancakes are dairy-free and gluten-free too.

By adding apple cider vinegar {wait, does that mean there are apples FOUR ways?}, to the Almond Breeze Almondmilk, you can “fake” a buttermilk-like effect.

For super apple power, top with chunks of apple {I like to sprinkle mine with lemon juice and cinnamon} and add a dollop of fresh homemade apple butter.

Apple Buttermilk Pancakes

by Heather Neal


  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour {I use oat flour}
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups Almond Breeze Almondmilk Original
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4-1/2 cup diced apples
  • apple butter {store-bought or easy apple butter recipe here}


Mix apple cider vinegar and almond milk together. Set aside.

Combine remaining ingredients except apples.

Stir in milk mixture.

Gently fold in apples.

Heat a skillet to medium; cook pancakes several minutes on each side. {Flip when you see air bubbles or the edges start to dry.}

Serve with extra apples & apple butter on top.

What’s Up Wednesday // June

bike riding three year old

I always mean to do one of these but I’m terribly with both days of the week and planning ahead, so when I realized things were lining up this week I had to jump on board.   What we’re eating this week… Lots of fresh berries, sandwiches, and anything cold. I’m so sad strawberry picking […]

It took me forever to title this post because I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what day it was. I spent the first half of the week thinking it was almost the weekend and the second half thinking it must be closer to Monday. As long as I keep my deadlines straight […]
