cinnamon spiced whole wheat pancakes

cinnamon spiced whole wheat pancakes

i confess - i tweaked my pancake recipe a bit
...even though i wrote in an earlier post "don't change what works - stick with the classic"
it just so happens this works too - i am allowed one take back aren't i ?

with the addition of whole wheat flour these pancakes pack a bit more nutritional punch 
than just ap flour alone

counter balancing the delicious caramelized apples that are going to top your pancakes

not to mention the pure nh maple syrup you doused them in too

gotta add healthy in there somewhere - apples & whole wheat flour do the job nicely

you will need:
for the pancakes
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp all spice
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 1/4 cup almond milk

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • in a medium bowl, combine flours, baking powder, sugar, salt & cinnamon
  • add remaining ingredients and stir until just combined- a little lumpy is okay
  • pre-heat a non-stick pan over low- medium heat
  • add a 1/2 cup of batter to pan- cook 1-2 minutes or until bubbles form on surface or edges become dry. cook an additional 1-2 minutes or until bottom is golden brown
  • place an oven proof plate in the oven - set oven to warm or the lowest temp. store your finished pancakes in the oven until ready to serve while you are preparing the remaining pancakes
for the topping
  • in a medium non-stick skillet over medium heat add butter, apples, brown sugar & cinnamon - stirring to coat both sides of the apple slices
  • cook over medium to low heat (looking for a slight bubble) until apples are soft & caramelized- about 15 minutes
stack your pancakes and top with caramelized apples - serve with pure maple syrup & enjoy!
