Apple pie is one of my favorite desserts during this time of season. The calories that come with apple pie though, not so great. I thought about many ways I could make a healthier version of apple pie, and that’s how apple pie pancakes were born! Try topping these pancakes with the apple-pecan compote or a la mode.
2/3 C.Flour, any kind (I used Buckwheat Flour) – If you feel like it’s too liquidy add 2 Tbsp more flour.
1/2 C. Apple, finely chopped
1/3 C. Milk or Almond Milk
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl, then add wet. Mix, but don’t over mix. Cook on an oiled (or sprayed) pan, on low-medium, flipping each pancake once. Top with apple compote and/or ice cream.
¼ C. Pecans, roughly chopped
Heat a small pan on medium heat and add apples (no oil). Stir the apples for about a minute, until they start to heat up. Add all the ingredients and cook on medium heat for a few minutes until the orange juice and apple mixture turns to a syrup consistency. Serve immediately.
