Meatless Monday: Apple Pancakes

Recently I came cross this clever idea involving pancake batter and sliced apples on on...

Apple Pancakes
(makes about 12 pancakes)

2 apples of your choice
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp all spice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp honey
1 1/4 cup milk of your choice
1 egg
2 tbsp butter or oil (I used coconut oil)

Mix all dry ingredients together in one bowl, then all wet (except for oil or butter) in another; combine until batter is smooth. Core apples, and then slice width-wise at about 1/4" thick, or desired thickness. Heat oil or butter over medium-low heat in large frying pan (or use a griddle if you got one!). Dip each apple slice into batter with a toothpick, then place onto pan. Fry for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Serve topped with extra apple slices and maple syrup. (Here is a recipe for apple cider vinegar from the original post).

Super easy and super yummy! Lily and I loved them, and I'm sure your family will too :) Such a clever and simple way to make a fun, fall-themed breakfast anytime of the year. We used ginger gold the first time, and then honey crisp the second time and both ways were very good, although I prefer the sweetness of the honey crisps over the spicy ginger golds.

    My most recent post is meatless, but not a recipe so I didn't link up. I'm encouraging everyone to watch the documentary about GMO's <a href=">Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of Our Lives</a> . It's eye opening!
