Basic Eggless Pancakes Recipe | Whole Wheat Apple Pie Pancakes

The best and my go to Eggless Pancake recipe. Basic eggless whole wheat pancakes made in a paniyaram pan with delicious apple pie stuffing. These pancake balls are soft, moist and smell of cinnamon with warm and syrupy apples.

Winter is almost here. I can feel the chill in the air already. Woolens are out and ready for us. Weekends are lazy this time around. My daughter woke up with a sore throat, another sign winter is here. Poor baby! What it meant was feel good warm comfort food for her and us! She loves pancakes and so do we.

I usually make pancakes with eggs, you can see my pancakes recipe with eggs here, No Flip Pancake. Since I ran out of eggs this morning, I had to search for eggless recipes. I came across the recipe from Nisha Madhulika who uses all purpose flour and whole wheat flour. This eggless pancake recipe is inspired from hers with a few changes to make it healthier.

My daughter, who is 3 years old, always asks us to make small bites for her to eat. I thought about it and made it more baby friendly. I made into pancake balls cooked in my favorite paniyaram pan! I love to cook in this wonder kitchen equipment.

This recipe is the second in my kids breakfast recipe series and I am glad to receive such an overwhelming response on my Instagram account for the series. Here’s the breakfast recipe #1, Besan Chila Tacos! Check out all my posts in this series with the search term “kids breakfast recipe series”.

  • 1 1/4 cups Whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • Pinch Salt
  • 2 1/2 tbsp Sugar or Jaggery
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 2 tsp Ghee or Oil
  • 1 Apple, small, cut into small pieces
  • 3 tbsp Brown Sugar (or Palm Sugar or Jaggery or Sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder


  1. Mix together the dry ingredients, flour, salt, sugar. Keep aside.

  2. Mix milk, vanilla essence and ghee (or oil).

  6. Now add 1/2 tsp of the apple mixture (without the juices) on each pancake. Cover all pancakes with 1/2 tsp of the pancake mixture. Cover and cook till one side is cooked. 

  7. Flip the pancakes and cook from the other side till done. Drizzle with the leftover juicy apple pie mixture before serving.
