Apple Pancakes

Kiddo and I love apples (it’s my favorite fruit!). She loves pancakes. Apple is the only fruit that Kiddo actually likes IN a pancake. When I add blueberries, she picks them out and asks for raw blueberries… So although I usually just dice an apple and add it to our usual pancake recipe, I decided to look for a tried and true recipe to see if it would be better. It wasn’t. Don’t get me wrong, the pancakes were good, but I prefer my standard recipe with apple chunks added.

However, this recipe does have its positive attributes. I found the apple flavor to be quite subtle, and if your goal is to add nutrition or fiber without a finicky eater noticing, this recipe might be the way to go.

Apple Pancake Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup (non-dairy) butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (almond) milk
  • 1 cup shredded apple
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 TBS white sugar

Apple Pancake Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine butter, egg, milk and apple. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar. Stir flour mixture into apple mixture, just until combined.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Scoop the batter onto the griddle, using a 1/4 cup measuring cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
