Whole Wheat Apple Pancakes

Easy and healthy apple pancakes! Freeze well too.

We have pancakes on a pretty regular basis on our house. Normally a weekend lunch. They are an easy (and cheap) meal, our daughter inhales them, and pulled out of freezer they make the perfect weekday morning breakfast for my daughter. Sometimes it’s fun to change up the flavors. We’ve been having a lot of pumpkin lately but since I still have a drawer full of apples to use I decided to whip up some apple pancakes. They were a hit. My daughter ate four of them in no time at all and she can look forward to the leftovers all week for breakfast.

Whole Wheat Apple Pancakes
Serves: 6-8
  • 2½ cups flour (I used white whole wheat)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (I used sucanat)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (or apple pie or pumpkin pie spice)
  • 2 cups milk
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups grated apples (I left the skins on)
  1. In a large bowl mix the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon.
  2. In a small bowl whisk eggs, milk, melted butter, and vanilla.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir gently.
  4. Fold in the grated apples.
  5. Cook pancakes over medium heat.
  6. Top with butter and maple syrup.

      Sorry it’s taken so long to respond. If you’ve already made them, I’m curious how many you got out of it. It honestly varies for me every time depending on the size I make them. Around 16 though.
