Recipe ingredients and notes:
- All-purpose flour – We use all-purpose flour, but you can use your favorite gluten-free blend if you’re celiac or gluten-free.
- Cinnamon – This adds a very tiny amount of flavor. It brings it together!
- Baking powder – We use this to create fluffy pancakes. It helps them rise.
- Sugar – To add sweetness, you can also use your preferred sweetener.
- Salt – To balance all of the flavors.
- Milk – You could also use your preferred dairy-free milk to make this recipe dairy free.
- Vinegar – We use vinegar in our milk to create faux buttermilk.
- Vanilla – Use real vanilla extract for the best flavor.
- Egg – If you cannot use eggs, you can also use banana, applesauce, or even a flax egg.
- Avocado oil – We use avocado oil to add a bit of fat. You could also use melted butter.
How to make mini pancakes
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl: all-purpose flour, cinnamon, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients: First, combine the milk and vinegar and let sit for 5 minutes to allow the milk to curdle, then add in the remaining wet ingredients.
Combine the wet and dry ingredients and let sit for 3-5 minutes until you see it start to get a bit airier from the baking soda. Once combined you can add in any optional pancake mix-ins like mini chocolate chips, sprinkles, or fruit.
Heat a skillet with avocado oil on medium heat before placing the batter onto the skillet.
Place tablespoon amounts of pancake batter with 2 inches in space around them onto the skillet. You’ll see bubbles form on the top of the pancakes when they’re ready to be flipped.
Remove the mini pancakes from the pan once fully cooked and stack the pancakes on a serving plate or serve as desired.
Serve and enjoy.

Storage and reheating tips
- Refrigerate: You can refrigerate leftover pancakes for 3-4 days.
- Freeze: You can freeze pancakes for about 2 months. We like to freeze in an airtight container. If you want to prevent them from sticking to each other you can use parchment paper between them or flash freeze them separately first.
- Reheat: To reheat leftover pancakes, place them on a lined baking sheet in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 5 minutes until nice and warm. You can also do 30 seconds in the microwave or 1-2 minutes on a hot skillet.
How to serve mini pancakes
We always serve pancakes with warm syrup and fresh fruit. You can also serve it with oatmeal, yogurt, or scrambled eggs.

We always wait until there are bubbles on top. If you like them lightly golden brown we suggest flipping when they’re getting bubbles on top, but if you want them a richer brown color wait until the batter is also a little cooked in appearance, drier than the fresh batter.
