Healthier Apple Pancakes
They aren’t overly sweet and I won’t lie, the texture is a bit different than super fluffy pancakes, but they’re so good! And they’re so much healthier! Perfect for toddlers, kids, picky eaters.
Yes, I even got my 4-year-old to eat some, he said: “Not bad, mommy”. Is it just me, or does it sound like the biggest compliment ever? I think I’m a chef. Yes, I’m that desperate.
OMG, speaking of chefs and bakers, recently I watched a show called “It’s cake” or “Is it cake” on NETFLIX. Something like that. The point is to make cakes that look like different things and you have to guess which is the real deal and which one is cake. Great idea, I was so excited, because I loved bake squad…but the people…I really want to punch them in the face. And it’s not because I was hungry. The host and some of the contestants were just so annoying. Keep it in your pants, man. Or, you know in your mind. Write it down. Speak to someone, a tree or a cat are a good choice. So, I can’t, I can’t watch it anymore. Now I will never find out whether it’s a cake or not and it’s breaking my heart.
But there are other things worth living for…like these apple pancakes. Here’s what you need to make them.
Ingredients For The Oatmeal Apple Pancakes
Apples. Red, yellow, sweet and ripe apples! One of them.
Oats – you’ll be blending them, but for the best texture use quick. And gluten free if you can’t handle gluten like myself.
Yogurt. Just ignore your dairy intolerance or get dairy-free yogurt. Yogurt will make the pancakes fluffier thanks to the experiment you’ll perform with baking soda.
Baking soda and baking powder. For the chemistry experiment, I just mentioned.
Maple syrup or honey. To add a bit of sweetness to the pancakes. I don’t like them overly sweet, a little bit goes a long way.
Vanilla and cinnamon. To make the pancakes smell like heaven!
How To Make Healthy Oatmeal Apple Pancakes
Blend the eggs with maple syrup, baking soda, baking powder and the yogurt. The mixture will become fluffy and creamy.
Add in the peeled and chopped apple and blend again.
Stir in the oats, vanilla and cinnamon, let sit for about 2 minutes and blend until smooth.
Heat a large non-stick pan to medium, cover with butter or coconut oil and pour the batter making small pancakes. Reduce the heat a bit (these burn fast at higher temperature).
Once bubbles come up and the edges look done, it’s time to flip with a large spatula. Transfer to a plate when golden brown on both sides.
Serve immediately with your favorite toppings – fresh fruit, maple syrup, honey or nut butter!
