Warm and spicy apple pancakes are the perfect way to wake up on a Fall Sunday morning. Consider them a great way to pamper yourself, and eat healthy.
This recipe includes walnuts and oats to give them a bit more staying power plus olive oil and honey for flavour. Do serve them with lots of maple syrup.
Apple, Walnut and Honey Pancakes(serve 2-3)
This recipe I find is easiest done in a food processer, but you can also do the following steps manually. Turn a large griddle on to low. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and cloves. Place the walnuts in a food processor and process until fine. Add to the dry ingredients and repeat with the oats. Place the honey in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 15 seconds on high to make it very liquid. Combine the eggs, milk, olive oil and honey in the bowl of the food processor and process for 30 seconds.
Slowly mix into the dry ingredients. Outfit the food processor with the grating attachment. Peel and core the apples and grate in the food processor. Stir into the pancake mix.
Turn the griddle up to medium heat and cook a test pancake slowly. The moisture in the apples will take them longer to cook then your average pancakes, so if you rush it they will be raw inside. Once you have got the temperature right continue to cook remaining pancakes. Each side should be a dark golden brown before you flip it. Transfer to a warm oven to keep warm while you cook the rest. Serve warm with syrup.
