Easy Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Happy Sunday morning!

Talk about having a creative cooking weekend! Three recipes in a week! I figured since it’s been awhile since I last made something for breakfast other than overnight oatmeal or ham biscuit sandwiches with a coffee smoothie, why not try pancakes?

So I decided to try making Apple Cinnamon Pancakes! Who doesn’t love pancakes once in awhile? Especially when it’s topped with fresh fruit and drizzled with delicious maple syrup. I decided to use a diced Gala apple as my topping. Of course, it would have tasted better if it was more of a compote but it’s a quiet Sunday morning.

To make this, I mostly followed the directions on Namaste’s Pancake and Waffle mix box but I just replaced the eggs and milk with nondairy/vegan options. You can use any box mix you like really, but just need to adjust the ingredients below to replace any eggs or milk it asks. For the eggs, I replaced it with 1/4 cup of applesauce per egg. You can, however, use any other type of substitution from flax eggs, a chia egg, 1/2 banana per egg, etc. Then for the 1/2 cup of milk, I just used some homemade hemp milk.

This recipe makes about 6 to 8 pancakes overall.

Easy Apple Cinnamon Pancakes Pan cooking step

Ingredients:

  • Namaste Waffle and Pancake mix
  • 1/2 cup Nondairy milk
  • 1/2 cup applesauce (to replace eggs)
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • About 1-2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • Maple Syrup
  • Toppings of choice
  • Vegan butter or oil for the frying pan/griddle

Directions:

  1. Prepare and measure your ingredients before adding them to a kitchen aid mixer with whisk attachment. (Or can add all the ingredients minus the maple syrup, toppings, and butter, to a regular mixing bowl and just whisk everything together)
  2. Turn on your mixer to a low setting and mix all the ingredients above with the exception of the last three.
  3. While your pancake mix is mixing, heat a frying pan or griddle over low heat. Add some butter or spray with oil. Once the pan/griddle is hot enough, take about a 1/4 cup of the now mixed together, pancake mix and add to your pan or griddle. (If there’s enough room, can try making two at a time.) You can add some additional cinnamon to your pancakes in this step too.
  4. Once your pancakes are starting to bubble, flip your pancake over to brown the other side. Once both sides are brown and cooked through, set on a plate before repeating step 3 and 4. You might have to use additional butter or oil spray to make sure your pancakes do not stick tot he pan/griddle.
  5. Once your pancakes are all cooked, add your toppings and syrup and enjoy!
