Apple Oatmeal Pancakes

Staying away from flour and processed grains is challenging when it comes to wanting a pancake.  I've tried almond flour pancakes and other varieties to no avail.  Hard and dry, lacking flavor.  Even with pure maple syrup!!  All hope was loss.  UNTIL NOW

I was a skeptic at first. Uncooked oatmeal and eggs?  I ended up adding apples because what isn't good with apples cooked in it?

As always, I altered the recipe slightly.  I used 1/2 cup of oats which is what was called for in the recipe without apples.  oops. So I threw in a little more then 1/4 cup of diced apples and two eggs instead of one.  It was bigger then what I could eat in one sitting but would be good if  you were going to make two of them.

 Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancake

  • 1 egg - cage free organic!!
  • ¼ cup rolled oats - I used Bob's Red Mill
  • ¼ cup finely chopped apple
  • 1 Tbsp. California raisins -yuck, I left these out
  • ¼ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla - use only the real stuff

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, using a fork to scramble the egg into the mixture.
  2. Heat a small pan over medium heat and spritz with a little oil. (I used coconut oil because why not)
  3. Pour pancake mixture into pan. Use a spatula to flatten into a pancake shape.
  4. Cook for 2-3 minutes on first side, then flip pancake. Cook 2 minutes on other side, then remove from pan and serve.
  5. Top with apples, raisins and yogurt if desired. (I topped mine with apples and pure maple syrup)
