  • 1 c. gluten-free or whole wheat flour if you use whole wheat, subtract 1 tablespoon from the 1 cup
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1/4 c. applesauce baby food works!
  • 1/2 c. milk I use almond, but any kind will work
  • 1 egg lightly beaten (flax, psyllium, and chia eggs work too!)
  • 1 T. oil or melted butter I've used walnut, olive, coconut, and almond with good results
  • 1 T. plain yogurt I use greek, but any type will work
  • 1/2 t. vanilla
  • 10 drops stevia or 1/16 t. powdered stevia extract
  • 1/2 c. fresh apple grated (I like a sweeter variety)
  • butter or oil for frying


  • Mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, powdered stevia (if using)).
  • Mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl (applesauce, milk, egg, oil, yogurt, vanilla, liquid stevia (if using)).
  • Mix everything together until combined.
  • Stir in the grated apple.
  • Melt a couple of tablespoons of butter or coconut oil in a non-stick skillet.
  • Dollop a few tablespoons for each cake.
  • Fry for about 3-4 minutes each side.
  • Cool and serve!
