Cinnamon Sugar Pancakes! A dream come true for any cinnamon roll lovers! These pancakes are gluten free, paleo, and just so tasty. I topped mine with melted coconut butter and oh. my. gosh. was it good!!! We are so obsessed with these and I love to make a big batch and freeze some of them! They reheat well if you pop them in the toaster.

There is nothing more intoxicating than the smell of fresh cinnamon rolls. I mean, who doesn’t remember walking by Cinnabon as a kid at the mall?! These are like a cinnamon roll but in pancake form! And made with coconut sugar + coconut butter. But don’t worry, they don’t taste coconut-y at all!

All information about substitutions is at the bottom of this post so keep scrolling if you’re thinking- but I don’t have coconut butter! Don’t worry, I got you!

Recipe Substitutions:

Flours- I haven’t tested any other flour besides almond flour! If you try any others though, let me know how it turns out and I’ll update below!

Coconut Sugar- Any easy sub here is brown sugar!

Coconut Butter- you can icing made out of powdered sugar and milk. Take 1/4 cup powdered sugar and add just a splash of milk. Mix together and add milk until desired thickness.

I always make these cinnamon sugar pancakes mini size because I find they’re easier to flip!

These freeze well and stay good in the fridge for 4-5 days.
