Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Fall is just around the corner and these Apple Cinnamon Pancakes are the perfect autumn breakfast! Apples and cinnamon are one of my favorite flavor combinations any time of year, but it seems especially good in the sweater-weather months when the air is crisp and the leaves are turning! These Apple Cinnamon Pancakes are super simple to make and you can easily double the recipe to accommodate a larger family. If you want to give your family options, you can even make them alongside a batch of Blueberry Pancakes, Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes, or Banana Silver Dollar Pancakes. Plus, a two-pancake serving is only 156 calories or 4 Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints!

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Yield: 3 (2 pancakes) servings

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup peeled and chopped apples
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 (5.3 oz) container vanilla nonfat Greek yogurt (I used Dannon Light & Fit Greek)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup white whole wheat flour (I use King Arthur Flour, you can use all purpose flour, this is just a preference)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Place the apples in a bowl and microwave on high for about a minute until softened but not mushy. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the egg, yogurt, honey and applesauce and stir until smooth and well combined. Add the flour, baking powder and cinnamon and stir again until smooth and well combined. Add the microwaved apples from step one and gently mix them into the batter.
  3. Mist a griddle pan with cooking spray and bring it over medium heat. Scoop a scant ¼ cup of batter onto the heated pan and use the back of a spoon to smooth it out into a flat(ish) circle. Repeat in batches (depending on how many pancakes fir on your pan at once) to form 6 pancakes. Cook on one side for 2-4 minutes until bottom is golden and pancake is “flippable.” If the batter is not firm on the bottom yet it needs more time. Once flipped cook another 1-2 minutes until golden on the other side as well. Repeat until you have 6 pancakes (pancakes in later batches will likely cook in less time).

Optional Topping: I like to slice up additional apples, sprinkle them with cinnamon and microwave them for a minute or so to put on top of my pancakes, sometimes with a little butter or sugar free/light syrup (not included in the nutrition info/points)

  1. I love whole wheat flour with apples and cinnamon. These look so good. Right now I am still in the peach mood. Sure hate to see the good SC peaches we bought be gone. I have 3 left.

    Apples are my favorite fall food to bake with.

  2. Can you substitute coconut or almond flour to make it lower points?

    • I’ve never used either of those ingredients before and I am not sure whether it would change the points values. You are welcome to try it!

    • I just looked it up in the Weight Watchers app and both coconut and almond flour have more points than all-purpose flour
