The whole family will love these light, fluffy and super delicious pancakes. Even those that aren’t vegan will ask for more!
My whole family loves pancakes. I don’t make them often mainly due to the lack of time in the mornings, but when I do I have to double-sometimes triple- the recipe to make sure I have enough for the 5 of us. We all like to eat, and we all like to eat pancakes. So why not make ones that are healthier with whole grains and no refined sugar? These. Are. Awesome.
I wanted to mix it up a bit and steer away from ever so popular Pumpkin Protein Pancakes (which are made all year long) and the Coconut Flour Pancakes (which are always a crowd pleaser). These Apple Cinnamon Pancakes did not disappoint.
Apple Cinnamon Pancakes
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup ground flax
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup 100% maple syrup
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 cups almond milk
- 1/2 cup apple chopped
Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, flax, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl.
Mix together maple syrup, applesauce and milk in a separate bowl.
Pur milk mixture into flour mixture and stir until just combined being careful not to over mix. The batter will be thick.
Add chopped apples and stir to combine.
Preheat a greased griddle on medium-low heat for 2-3 minutes to get it hot. Place about 1/3 cup of batter onto hot griddle and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
Top with extra maple syrup and additional cinnamon and chopped apples if desired.
