3 Ingredient Vegan Watermelon Pancakes (Gluten Free)

Father’s Day in Australia is celebrated on the first Sunday of spring. The little ones decided that they would have a party for their father and grandfather, starting with pancakes for breakfast. These pretty looking watermelon pancakes are made with just 3 ingredients, the red pulp, gluten free self raising flour and a dash of Xylitol. I used coconut oil to grease my cast iron pan.

We need,

  • Watermelon Pulp (Red part) – 2 cups
  • Gluten Free Self Raising Flour – 1.5 cups
  • Xylitol – 1 tablespoon
  • Coconut Oil, to grease the pan.


  1. Blend the red pulp into a smooth purée.
  2. Add the watermelon purée to a large mixing bowl and fold in the flour bit by bit.
  3. Whisk well until all the lumps dissolve. Set aside.
  4. Heat a flat pan and spread a teaspoonful of melted coconut oil all over.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup batter into the centre of the heated pan. Spread into a 5″ round pancake.
  6. Cover and cook until the sides lift up and look golden.
  7. Flip over and cook other side for a minute or two on a slow flame. (We tested some as is, without flipping and they were stickier texture wise, cooking both sides yield a crisper pancake).

Most of these 3 ingredient vegan watermelon pancakes were eaten hot off the pan, some that made it to the father were served with raw Vegan Coconut Condensed Milk! Please check out the video I made for this recipe 😊
