INGREDIENTS

Dry Ingredients:

  • 2 cups oat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons baking powder

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 2 cups Unsweetened Almond
  • 2 egg replacers or flax eggs
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla

Other Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cubed apple
  • 2 Tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • oil for pan (avocado or coconut)

METHOD

Combine dry ingredients and mix together in medium bowl. Combine wet ingredients in bowl. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well. Gently mix in apples. Allow mixture to sit 3-5 minutes, it will thicken slightly.
In the meantime, bring a cast iron skillet to medium heat and add enough oil to just cover the pan so it doesn’t dry out. Once pan is hot and ready, use a 1/2 cup to scoop out the pancake mix and pour into middle of the pan. Use the measure cup or the back of a spoon to flatten the mixture and make it into a round pancake.
Let cook 2-3 minutes per side or until the edges start to bubble slightly (if you don’t flatten them as much you might want to cook closer to 3-4 minutes per side).
Serve immediately with real maple syrup and additional ground cinnamon on top.
