Breakfasts Sunday Brunch at home Vegetarian

Avocado Pancake Stack

gluten free avocado pancakes

It’s no secret that I am a fan of Sunday brunch.. or brunch on any day for that matter. I do enjoy going out but sometimes the food can be dissappointing/expensive, the queues too much and you get rushed out before you could order a second mimosa coffee.

Sunday brunch at home can be as tasty, cheaper and no rush to finish.

I bought an abundance of avocadoes because they were cheap (got to get in while you can) so I decided to make gluten free avocado pancake stack with rocket, parmesan, capers and topped with a fried egg and sour cream. This was a great decision.

The pancakes had a green tinge to them with an avocado flavour which went perfectly with the spicy rocket, sour cream and sharp parmesan. I added some capers and lemon thyme to garnish as I love to garnish with lots of condiments. 

Packed with protein, good fats and greens this brunch is a great way to start your day (unless you’re a breakfast for dinner kind of person, in which case we need to be friends immediately).

When Jackson and I have dinner, he just eats his (usually with some chili flakes) but me? No I can’t just have it plain.  I add salt, pepper, chilli flakes, a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of paprika and some freshly chopped herbs. Call me crazy but I am just falling in love with all these fresh flavours I am experimenting with!

Are you a garnisher/seasoner? 

This brunch was amazing. I love pancakes but am such a savoury person so I am glad I made a gluten free, healthy savoury pancake recipe (yay) so now I can have pancakes for breakfast any time I want, right?

Avocado Pancakes (gluten free) stacked with rocket, sour cream, parmesan, capers, lemon and topped with a fried egg
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 25 mins


For the Pancakes

  • 1 cup millet flour any gluten free flour or just plain flour
  • 1 avocado mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tbsp water

For the stack

  • 2 eggs to fry
  • Large handful rocket leaves
  • 1/4 cup shaved parmesan cheese
  • 100 grams sour cream
  • Pinch of lemon thyme or basil
  • 1/2 a lemon wedged to serve
  • Capers if desired


For the Pancakes

  • Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and beat until it forms a batter.
  • In a non stick fry pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil/butter and dollop the mixture into the pan 1cm thick (channel your inner pancake skills)
  • Fry for 3-4 minutes on each side or until browned and cooked. Remove and set on a paper towel to rest

For the stack

  • Fry your eggs in a fry pan until cooked.
  • Create your pancake stack whilst eggs are cooking.
  • Layer a pancake, some rocket, a dollop of sour cream, sprinkle of parmesan and then another pancake on top.
  • Once eggs have cooked, remove and top the stack with a fried egg
  • Garnish with the shaved parmesan, cheek of lemon and dollop of sour cream on the side. Sprinkle with the basil/lemon thyme and enjoy!


The batter mixture makes 7-8 pancakes about the size of a fried egg. This is enough for 2 people. If you require more, double recipe. Enjoy! Bec x
