Vegan Cinnamon Roll Pancakes and Multi-grain Pancake Mix. Vegan Recipe

Vegan Multi-grain Cinnamon Roll Pancakes


Another Vegan Month of Food Week begins! 
In August when my parents were visiting, I wanted to make some lemony blueberry pancakes for them (though Dad doesnt really like sweet fat pancakes in the morning). I opened up my box of Bob’s Red mill 7 grain pancake mix and there was about 2 Tablespoons left in there. I decided to make my own mix with whole grain flours and lets just say that the pancakes did not turn out the way I wanted them to. I decided I needed my own no-fail mix to use when needed. I am finally getting around to making some and posting it:)

What did I make with the mix… Cinnamon Roll Pancakes! My baked Cinnamon rolls are gorgeous, delicious, tried and tested too, but I dont have the time to bake the rolls on weekday mornings. So as well use the cinnamony goodness in pancakes. Make a thick cinnamon sugar filling mixture and pipe it onto the pancakes. Dont worry if those circles are not pretty. Mine aren’t either, since I used a spoon to make them instead of a ziplock baggie. They all taste awesome!:) Top with maple or coconut cream.

Surprisingly I have very few pancakes recipes on the blog. I make more French Toasts than pancakes. Though the recipes of both are easily interchangeable.

For Cinnamon roll French Toasts, make a thinner batter with the pancake mix. Make swirls with the filling on one side, pan fry and serve. yum.

Oh hey, did you check out the new look of the blog? :)

The main page now just has pictures, and the posts are linked from there. I am working out some of the fonts and other kinks. I am also wondering if I should move the post to the left and the sidebar to the right like it used to be earlier. 

Let me know your thoughts on the new look and any suggestions:)
The redesign is a new Template and some changes for the blog per my preference. 

Mix all the ingredients of the pancake mix and keep in an airtight container. 

Take a cup of the mix, add the wet ingredients and cinnamon. 

Drop ladle full of the batter and after about a minute, make circles with the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Flip, cook the other side. 

Stack and Serve hot topped with maple syrup and a dollop of Earth balance.

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes and Multigrain Pancake Mix. 

Allergy Information: Free of Dairy, egg, soy, yeast. Can be corn-free


For the Multi-grain Pancake mix: Makes about 3 servings of 4-5 pancakes
1/2 cup Spelt flour
1 cup unbleached white flour
1/4 cup Kamut (or barley, rye, sorghum, millet, buckwheat) flour
1/2 cup Almond Oat flour (I make this at home. See Recipe below)
1/4 cup ground raw sugar or other sugar finely ground (or add sweetener/stevia later while making pancake batter)
2 Tablespoons flaxmeal
2 Tablespoons cornstarch or arrowroot starch
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

For the Cinnamon Roll Pancakes: Makes 4-5 pancakes

1 cup Regular Pancake Mix (above) or use my Gluten-free Pancake Mix
1/4 cup almond milk
1/3+ cup water
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons oil(optional)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder

For the Cinnamon sugar filling:

1 Tablespoon oil or melted Earth balance
1 Tablespoon Almond milk
3 Tablespoon ground raw sugar or coconut sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon powder
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon flour


Multigrain pancake Mix: 
Mix everything well with a whisk and store. Use Arrowroot starch to make corn-free.
To make the Almond Oat flour. Use equal quantities of almonds and oats and blend until coarse flour.

Cinnamon Sugar filling:

Whisk everything well and refrigerate while you get the pancake mix ready. Or use this thicker filling and ziplock method by Vegan Yumminess

Cinnamon Roll pancakes:

Add the lemon juice to 1/3 cup water. Add the almond milk, water, oil, cinnamon to the dry pancake mix. Mix until just combined and let sit for 2 minutes. If the mixture feels too thick(it is thicker than plain flour pancake mix), then add a tablespoon more water. 
Heat the pan on medium heat. Grease with a little oil. Once the pan is hot, pour ladle full (1/4 cup) of the pancake batter for each pancake. Spread the batter a bit with the ladle if needed. Let it cook for about half a minute till it starts to bubble on the edges. Make circles on top with the cinnamon sugar filling(using a spoon or the sandwich bag method). Do not make the swirls too close to the edge of the pancake. Cover the pan for a minute. Let it cook until bubbles form in the center(3-4 minutes). Flip the pancake and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Remove from the pan, stack and serve hot with maple syrup, a dollop of Earth balance or coconut cream drizzle. 

Notes: For plain pancakes, mix everything under Cinnamon roll Pancakes, except cinnamon and use batter.

    Firstly, these pancakes look so good. I’d seen the original recipe around the blogosphere but would feel better about eating your wholegrain, healthier version :) Secondly, I love the new look. It looks really smart and pro. I think being right-handed make me prefer a right side-bar but it’s no biggie.

    • says

      I know right. when i am in a hurry i just sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar on top and eat them :)
      i thought so about the side bar. will see for a few days and then change it up or try to.. depends on how complicated it is:)

    • says

      yes, i make the almond oat flour with equal amounts of almonds and oats. i use it in cakes and breads, so it is usually handy. You can use half almond flour and half oat flour or just use 1/2 cup oat flour.

    Oh, Richa! These are beautiful! Thanks for the little shout-out. :) I love how you turn the epitome of comfort food into something nutrient-dense and healthy. Btw, I think your cinnamon swirls turned out perfect. Lol…I got 1 or 2 pancakes to look pretty good (put those on the top of the stacks), drizzled coconut cream to hide any imperfects, then took pictures. So, yeah, most of mine tasted wonderful, but didn’t look perfect. ;)

      thanks Lindsay. I know right.. those dang swirls. :)
      it is difficult to not eat them up while clicking the photographs.. all that warm cinnamon in the air

    oh my goodness. I love pancakes. Unlike your dad, I love sweeties for breakfast – i love waffles and pancakes and french toast and cinnamon rolls. I want to eat it all!! These cinnamon roll pancakes sound and look like heaven on earth!

    • says

      Oh yes it is. Thanks for letting me know. Some of the template default fonts are a bit too small or light. I will be looking at each and changing them over the next few days.

    The new Blog format is SO PRETTY- loving the fonts and clean design! Personally I like the main info on the left and the info bar on the right- maybe it is the whole reading left to right thing?

    These pancakes look amazing and you know I am pretty picky about my pancakes :)

    I love the idea of having this flour mix on hand! I was just wanting to make pancakes, this morning, and made oatmeal instead because I didn’t want to bother measuring everything out. I’ll need to make this for the future!

    Also, I love the new look of the site! Super clean and the photos are (obviously) eye-catching. Terrific! :)

    Hoooly cow these look amazing. Funny, I was just thinking about cinnamon pancakes the other day, wishing I had a good recipe for them. Thanks for reading my mind!

    I am planning on making these pancakes very soon! Question: is the 1/4 cup kamut etc…suppose to be flour. If I use barley…do I grind it into flour? thank you! Maureen

  9. Corrin Radd says

    Made these today–so tasty and fluffy and fun. Now I’m going to have to work my way through all of your pancake recipes!

  10. says

    Richa, your photography is sooo drool-worthy! It’s not even breakfast time, but I want some pancakes NOW!

    By the way, have you ever written a post with any photography tips? I’d love to get a few pointers from you, and I’m sure I’m not the only one!
