The Best Classic Apple Pie Pancakes

by | Mar 25, 2023 | Desserts | 0 comments

My family has always been a big fan of apple pie, so I thought I would try something new to mix it up. I created these apple pie pancakes as a delicious twist on the classic dessert. I love how the combination of sweet apples and cinnamon complements the light and fluffy pancakes. Not to mention, these pancakes are gluten-free and contain no refined sugar. They make the perfect breakfast treat for any day of the week.

I remember when I first made these pancakes for my family. I was nervous that they wouldn’t like them, but they devoured them in minutes. Now, they’re a family favorite and I make them every Sunday morning. They’re so easy to make, and the smell of warm apples and cinnamon fills my kitchen as they cook. It’s always a special moment for me, knowing that I’m bringing my family together with something I’ve created.

  • For a vegan version, replace the eggs with 1/4 cup mashed banana or applesauce.
  • For a sweeter version, add an extra tablespoon of maple syrup or a few tablespoons of coconut sugar.
  • For a crunchy texture, add 1/4 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts.
  • For a gluten-free version, use gluten-free all-purpose flour instead of regular all-purpose flour.
