Scallion pancakes are a Chinese classic that's slightly crispy, doughy, and full of scallions! They’re simply made with just a couple of ingredients like flour, water, oil, and scallions. No eggs, no yeast!

These aren’t exactly like American pancakes. If you’ve never had them before, consider them as a flatbread. Regardless, they're so delicious!

Homemade Scallion Pancakes

  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp cassava flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 3 tbsp arrowroot starch (plus extra for flouring a surface)
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil (plus extra for frying)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup scallions, chopped
  1. Using a large bowl, mix together the flours, salt, and baking soda until well incorporated.
  2. Slowly pour the hot water in the dough and stir well to form a shaggy dough. Pour in the oil and apple cider vinegar and mix well.
  3. Gently fold in the scallions until well incorporated.
  4. Lightly a clean surface with some arrowroot starch and divide the dough into 3 equal balls. Use a rolling pin (or your hands if the dough is too delicate and sticky) to form the dough balls into round, thin pancakes that are about 1/4-1/3″ thick.
  5. Use a large pan to heat avocado oil over medium heat. Fry the pancakes one at a time for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until lightly crisped. Set aside.
  6. Slice the pancakes into fours and serve with coconut aminos as a side dish or appetizer.
