Yield: 5 Servings 1x


For the Apple Topping:


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, apple pie spice and salt, then set aside.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, applesauce, milk, maple syrup and vanilla until mixture is all combined.
  2. Pour the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients and mix with a spatula or whisk until all combined being careful not to over mix the pancake batter.
  3. Heat a skillet or griddle pan coated with nonstick cooking spray over medium-low heat and spoon about a 1/4 cup batter onto the skillet in a single layer.  Cook over medium heat for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side until pancakes are golden brown.  Flip over when surface of pancakes start to form small bubbles and edges are slightly dry.  You should get about 10 fluffy pancakes.
  4. To make the apple topping, in a skillet over medium heat, melt butter (or coconut oil), add chopped apples, maple syrup and cinnamon, mixing well and making sure the apples are completely coated.  Sauté the apples for about 4 to 5 minutes in the pan until they are soft and tender.
  5. Top the pancakes with warm sautéed apples along with more maple syrup or even powdered sugar, if desired.  Enjoy!
