Many years ago, I stumbled upon a fabulous 5-star recipe for applesauce pancakes on AllRecipes. It was easy to adapt for dairy free, and the stacks are delicious topped with maple syrup, warm honey, apple butter, or fresh fruit. Today, I’m updating this old recipe post for easier use and with some recommendations!
Some popular dairy-free pancake mix options include Bisquick, Bisquick Heart Smart, Annie’s Organic, and Bob’s Red Mill Organic 7-Grain. Avoid “Complete” pancake mixes that just call for water. They will produce a batter that is too thin. We haven’t tested a gluten-free version of this recipe, but it might work with a gluten-free pancake mix, like Gluten-Free Bisquick.

- 2 eggs
- 1 cup applesauce
- ½ cup dairy-free milk beverage
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice

- Heat a lightly greased griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat.
