 Cinnamon Roll Pancake Recipe - Gluten Free and Vegan Recipe


  1. Mix the oat milk, maple syrup, baking powder, and vanilla together. Then, add the flour and mix until a pancake batter forms.
  2. In a smaller separate bowl, prepare the cinnamon swirl mixture by mixing the cinnamon, melted vegan butter, and Purecane™ Brown Sweetener together. Spoon the cinnamon swirl mixture into a pastry bag or ziplock bag and set aside until ready to use. Using Purecane™ Brown Sweetener in these pancakes will result in pancakes that are only 64 calories each!
  3. Prepare the vegan cream cheese frosting by mixing the Purecane™ Confectioners Sweetener, vegan butter, and vegan cream cheese together.
  4. Bring a skillet with a sliver of vegan butter to medium-low heat. Once the butter sizzles, spoon in about 3 tablespoons of the pancake batter. Carefully cut off the tip of the bag containing the cinnamon swirl mixture. Hold the tip upright so that the contents don't begin to drizzle out. Carefully use the bag to draw a spiral of the cinnamon sugar swirl mixture in the center of each pancake. Optional: add a little more batter on top of each pancake so that the filling doesn't burn. 
  5. Cook the pancakes until bubbles form on the tops, and then flip. Cook for another minute or two until the pancakes are golden browned on each side.
  6. Before serving the pancakes, drizzle them with maple syrup and vegan cream cheese frosting. If the frosting is too thick to drizzle , you can thin it out by adding 1 tablespoon of almond or oat milk.
