Nutty Apple Spice Pancakes

Leave a comment

With a blend of spices, comforting apple pieces and the added crunch of nutrient rich nuts, these pancakes will help power you up on a cold morning. Use whatever protein powder you would like, but one with little flavour is probably best so the flavours of the apples and spices can shine through. I use a hemp protein powder that has a little bit of an earthy flavour to it and good texture. Do it up with some coffee or tea and you’re ready to go! The cinnamon in this recipe not only helps keep blood sugar levels stable, it is also a powerful antioxidant, just like apple skins, which I would recommend leaving on for this recipe! Just make sure the apple is washed well, and the texture will break down a little during cooking. photo (24)

1/4 cup oats
1/4 protein powder of choice
1 tbsp. chopped nuts (walnuts, cashews etc)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
tiny pinch of cayenne
tiny pinch of salt
1 small apple, diced
1/2 tsp baking powder
Coconut oil
Maple syrup or jam

In a pan on medium heat, caramelize apple chunks until brown and a little bit crispy in a bit of coconut oil. Combine all dry ingredients and add about 1/2 cup of water, add more if necessary to desired consistency. Mix in caramelized apples and let mixture sit for about a minute. In a bit of coconut oil pour batter in pan and cook evenly, until edges turn brown. Top with your favorite jam or maple syrup and have an amazing day!
