Course: Breakfast, Dessert, Snack
Cuisine: Dairy Free, Egg Free, Gluten Free, Nut Free, Soya Free, Vegan, Vegetarian


  • 150ml – apple juice
  • 75g – cherries (or raspberries will give a pinker colour)
  • 1 tablespoon – ground flax seed (alternatively, you can use an egg)
  • 3 tablespoon – warm water (leave out if using the egg)
  • 150g – gluten-free self-raising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon – baking powder (gluten-free if required)
  • 1 teaspoon – coconut oil


  1. Mix the ground flax seed with the warm water and leave for 5 minutes to thicken. (Alternatively, if you are able to tolerate eggs, leave out this stage, and lightly whisk the egg in a bowl.)
  2. Blend the apple juice and cherries together, add to the flax seed mixture (or egg), and then whisk in the flour and baking powder.
  3. Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan (ideally with a lid) over a medium-low heat, and ensure the melted oil is spread over the base of the pan.
  4. Add spoonful’s to the pan to make your pancakes. Cover, and leave until risen and the edges are looking dried. Turn over and cook for another couple of minutes.
  5. Serve immediately with more berries, a sprinkle of icing sugar and maple syrup if you like it sweet.
  6. Can be reheated in the toaster for a snack.
