Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

These Apple Cinnamon Pancakes are a perfect autumn breakfast!

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

Instructions

  • Place the apples in a bowl and microwave on high for about a minute until softened but not mushy. Set aside.
  • 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.
  • 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 fit 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)
