Cinnabon Pancakes

Servings: 4


  • 1/4 cup peanut almond butter, or tahini
  • 2 Tbsps dark maple syrup
  • 3 tsps ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 whole eggs room temperature
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened milk of choice
  • 1 cup full-fat plain Greek yogurt or unsweetened coconut yogurt
  • 2-3 Tbsps pure maple syrup or raw honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • To make your cinnamon swirl mixture:
  • Whisk all the ingredients together really well.
  • Place in a small Ziploc bag or piping bag and set aside.
  • To make the pancakes:
  • Place all the pancake ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until just combined and just smooth, about 20-30 seconds. We want the batter just smooth to create fluffy pancakes but not over blended which will create dense pancakes.
  • Allow your batter to rest for 15 minutes to thicken.
  • Lightly spray or rub a griddle or large skillet with avocado cooking oil or ghee and heat over medium heat.
  • Pour 1/4 cup batter onto your hot skillet.
  • Cut a very small corner of the bag with the cinnamon swirl and pipe the mixture into a swirl on top of each pancake as shown.
  • Cook your pancakes until bubbles appear on the top, around 2 minutes, then flip and cook for about a minute longer.
  • Repeat with the remaining pancake batter and cinnamon swirl mixture.
  • To frost:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk all of your frosting ingredients together really well.
  • If desired, add a bit more maple syrup or honey to taste.
  • Drizzle frosting over your pancakes and serve right away!
