Apple Spiced Pancakes


It has been a short while since I posted my last pancake recipe (🤪) and so I thought it was time for a further alternative: Meet these Apple Spiced Pancakes. For anyone who does not know, breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day. And on the weekends, I like to make things a bit more elaborate – brunch. My absolute favorite obsession 🥰.

And so, in order to have enough choice in the brunch category, I am adding this recipe to our roster this week 🙌🏻. Pancakes are a super easy, versatile addition to a brunch, either as a main course, or as an addition to another spread. You can cook them in advance and keep warm in the oven, or cook them whilst you continue to prepare other food. Now, the key to fluffy, delicious pancakes is always the following: Patience. You have to be patient for them to cook from one side and then also display the same kind of patience on the other side. Keep them on medium heat and wait until you see bubbles forming at the top.

Apples are a year-round delicious addition to your diet. The Apple Spiced Pancakes are super easy to make and beyond delicious. Simply mix the dry and wet ingredients (first separately, then together) and add grated apple into the mix. Then you fry them off in a non-stick pan with just the tiniest bit of cooking oil. Meanwhile, you can fry off more apples coated in cinnamon in order to add on top. Simple, yummy, goodness!!

Why are these Apple Spiced Pancakes good for you?


I have said it before, and I will say it again – an apple a day keeps the doctor away 😉. We have all heard this before and indeed, it is very true. Apples contain gut-healthy fiber, vitamin C, K, as well as copper and potassium. They are also rich in antioxidants. Most of the fiber and antioxidants are close to the apple’s skin, so it makes sense to leave it on as much as possible in order to ramp up the benefits of this delicious snack. The vitamin C in apples acts as an antioxidant in our bodies – eliminating free radicals and thereby reducing oxidative stress. Vitamin C is also important to keep our immune system strong, as well as to aid in the production of collagen.

Fiber has long been proven to not only support our gut health, but also our heart health. Basically, fiber allows your blood sugar levels to rise more gradually and slowly. At the same time, it binds “bad cholesterol” and eliminates it through the colon, which again has a very positive effect on the heart. The fiber in apples also acts as a prebiotic, which means that it is excellent feeding ground for your good-gut bacteria. The antioxidant called “polyphenol”, found in apples, may lower blood pressure levels (next to also reducing your risk of strokes). They also reduce plaque, which can build up in the arteries. I find that quite impressive list of benefits 😍!!

How can I adjust these Apple Spiced Pancakes to my Dietary Requirements?

  • Dry Ingredients
  • 1.5 cups (ca. 168 gr.) oats

  • 1/2 cup (ca. 100 gr.) buckwheat

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp ground ginger

  • A pinch of salt

  • Wet Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted

  • 1.25 cups (300 ml. )non-dairy milk

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/4 cup (60 ml.) maple syrup

  • 2 medium apples, grated

  • A bit of coconut oil for frying

  • For the Apple Topping
  • 2 apples

  • 1 tsp coconut oil

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

How to

  • Dry Ingredients
  • Quickly blend the oats and buckwheat in a blender so that it turns into a flour. Add to a bowl, along with baking powder, cinnamon, ground ginger, and pinch of salt and mix well. Set aside
  • Wet Ingredients
  • Put the coconut oil in a small pot (or, I usually just heat it in the pan I will be using anyways for the pancakes). Meanwhile, mix the non-dairy milk, eggs, and maple syrup. Add the coconut oil when melted. Now quickly mix. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well. Wash and core two apples and grate. Mix under your pancake batter
  • For the Apple Spiced Pancakes
  • Turn your oven to about 100 degrees Celsius (ca. 200 Fahrenheit). Heat a non-stick pan with a bit of coconut oil to medium heat and add about 1/4 cup of the batter for each pancake. Wait until bubbles form on top before flipping. Add to the oven to keep warm. Continue to fry off the rest of the batter
  • For the Apple Topping
  • Meanwhile, wash and core the remaining two apples and thinly slice. Heat a frying pan to medium-high heat and add the coconut oil. Once melted, add the apple slices and cinnamon and fry until fragrant and the apples have released a bit of their juice
  • For Serving
  • Serve the apple pancakes along with the apple topping. You can add more maple syrup, nut butter, or a few crushed walnuts along (or really anything else that your pancake heart desires). Enjoy!!
