Foodie Friday: Apple Cider Pancake Cups (V+GF)

Happy Foodie Friday! What exciting plans does your weekend hold? This weekend I hope to do some blog work, spend Saturday with my niece and parents, and hopefully some fall baking mixed in? Speaking of fall baking, today’s foodie Friday recipe is a fun take on a pancake! These apple cider pancake cups are vegan, gluten free, and easy to customize. You’ll get cinnamon and apple cider flavor in every bite, especially if you make the apple cider maple glaze for the top!ย 

Apple Cider Pancake Cups (Makes 6)



  • 1 Cup Gluten free flour (I used brown rice flour)
  • 1/2 Cup Apple Cider
  • 1/3 Cup Soy milk (or any non-dairy milk)
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 Small overripe banana


  • Preheat the oven to 375 Degrees.
  • Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Stir to Combine.
  • In a small bowl, mash banana until no longer chunky.
  • Combine apple cider, soy milk, maple syrup, and mashed banana to dry mixture. Stir usingย a spatula until forms batter. Do not over mix.


  • Line 6 muffin tins with baking cups or grease with coconut oil.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean and tops are slightly browned.ย 

For Apple Cider/Maple Glaze:



  • 1/3 Cup Maple Syrup (THE REAL STUFF!)
  • 1/4 Cup Apple Cider
  • 1 Teaspoon Vegan Butter


  • Combine ingredients in small saucepan.
  • Simmer on low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Pour glaze in to a small bowl and dip pancake cups in mixture.


  • Roll the glazed tops in cinnamon and enjoy!


I hope that you make these this fall, your house will smell like apples and cinnamon ๐Ÿ˜€ These will freeze very well or can be kept in the fridge for a couple of days for a quick breakfastย or snack! I hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend. Until Monday, happy pancake dipping!ย

  1. These look so festive and delicious!! Will Bob’s Red Mill All-Purpose Gluten Free Flour work too? My favorite fall beverage is probably hot apple cider, so comforting! ๐Ÿ™‚ Tonight I’m going to Cuba Libre with friends for some drinks and Latin dancing!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Yes, that would definitely work. Just add a bit of water if that kind of flour is making the batter too thick. That sounds fun! Enjoy!

  2. Oh my gosh, yum!!!! I love the simplicity of ingredients too. My husband and I just took a walk with our dogs and were talking about how we are so excited for fall… then he says, “but it will be awhile… it is supposed to be 97 in Dallas next week” … Dreaming of some cooler (not cold) weather. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Yes, they were really simple to make and the ingredients arent too unhealthy either. I figured it was a win-win! Oh yes, that apple cinnamon smell is a dream! Hope you enjoy these–I think youll be able to whip them up quickly in between feedings! <3 Hope you're doing well with the new baby!

    • haha thats okay! We cant all be obsessed with pumpkin! Apple is so fall-ish too and I think it get over shadowed by pumpkin! Hope you enjoy them!

  3. Ooh, it’s like all the best pancake ingredients put into a muffin! A baked pancake sounds like the perfect solution for not having to flip all the pancakes when you don’t have time. ๐Ÿ™‚ I bet these would make good waffles too?

    • Yes! I’m all about not having to flip and save time! Thats a great point about waffles…ill have to try this batter in my waffle iron and see how they turn out!
