Apple “Pancakes”

My nieces love pancakes.  ….Oh who am I kidding, I love pancakes.  There is just something about having a warm, fluffy short stack that makes it feel like it’s going to be a wonderful day.


But have you ever wished pancakes could be a little more wholesome?  I know each time I eat them for breakfast I never really feel full with one serving (though let’s face it, most people eat more than one serving…which is usually 3 small ‘cakes).  Now there is a great pancake alternative I will be turning to that’s more nutritious, gives a full serving of fruit, and doesn’t need gobs of syrup.

This recipe is very easily customized to your tastes. Use your favorite type of apple, your favorite pancake mix or scratch recipe, and your favorite syrup. It’s all about you!! 🙂


Apple Pancakes

Makes 1 serving

  • 1 medium apple of your choosing (I used golden delicious)
  • 1 serving pancake batter
  • Syrup or topping of your choosing (I use sugar free syrup)

Prepare the pancake mix per box directions to get a bowl of batter.

Core the apple, peeling if desired. Then, slice the apple into thinly sliced rings (1/8-1/4 inch).

Dab the apple rings with a paper towel to dry so the batter will stick.

Dip an apple slice into the batter, covering both sides of the ring, and place onto a hot skillet. Repeat with all slices.

Of course, finish it all off with the topping of your choice. Yummmmmmm!!!!!!


Yes, you will have extra batter left over, but you need to have the full serving amount so you have room to dip all the slices. The covered apple slices are very filling, making this perfect because you don’t need the full serving of pancakes you’d normally eat.
