Healthy Apple Cinnamon Pancakes are the perfect gluten free breakfast or snack. Taste the flavors of fall year-round in these nutritious, simple pancakes!
I know that it’s June… buuuut I’m sharing an apple cinnamon recipe with you. As far as I’m concerned – fall flavors are applicable year round. This is one of the first recipes that I ever posted on the blog, and it’s one of my go-to breakfast recipes for lazy Sunday mornings.
Pancakes are without a doubt my favorite breakfasts. Growing up as a kid, I loved eating them. My mom would make us homemade ones on the weekends, and I can always remember being so excited to have them. When I started eating healthier I stopped eating them almost all together. (Cue the tears)
Then I got creative… because who wants to give up delicious, fluffy pancakes in the name of being healthy?? Not me. I found out that if you skip the butter and oil, swap the white flour for oat flour, sugar for honey, and add in some chopped fruit – you’ve got a pretty healthy breakfast!
I’ve found that eating healthier is all about the tricks. By making small, simple sways, you don’t have to give up anything! It’s all about getting creative and trying new things. Here’s how I made these:
- 1½ cup oat flour
- 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
- 1 cup milk
- 2 teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ginger
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup chopped apples
- If you do not have oat flour - pulse oats in a food processor until they are finely ground (texture of flour).
- In a large bowl add in oat flour, milk, flax seed mixture, egg, milk, spices and apples
- Bake on a griddle or in a frying pan until light brown.
- Top with sauteed apples and enjoy!
Things we used to make this recipe: NutriBullet, Griddle, oat flour, Ground Flaxseed, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, honey, baking powder, baking soda
You can add in anything to these pancakes – fresh berries, chocolate chips, etc. I personally like the flavors that the apples give, but the base of the pancakes are so simple- they really go with anything.
