Ingredients

  • FOR THE SAUTEED APPLES:
  • 1 tsp vegan Margarine such as Earth Balance or coconut oil
  • 1 medium Apple peeled, core removed and diced finely
  • FOR THE PANCAKES:
  • 2/3 C plus 2 Tbl Quick-Cooking Oats
  • 1 Tbl Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbl Sugar
  • 1/2 C Almond MIlk
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • pinch of Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp Apple Pie Spice
  • *****
  • TO MAKE YOUR OWN APPLE PIE SPICE:
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Ginger
  • 1/4 tsp Allspice
  • 1/8 tsp Cardamom

Instructions

  • Peel and core 1 medium apple. Cut into a fine dice.
  • In a small non-stick saute pan, add oil (or vegan margarine), the diced apples and a sprinkle of your spice mixture.
  • Saute on medium-high heat until tender. Take care not to let the mixture get too dry. Add a smidge more oil/margarine if necessary.
  • Meanwhile, combine your dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Once the apples are tender, add these to the dry ingredients along with almond milk and vanilla.
  • Whisk to combine and allow to sit for about 5 minutes. This will help the oatmeal absorb the liquids and also give the baking powder time to activate for nice, puffy pancakes.
  • Using the same saute pan, spray with cooking spray.
  • Add batter to the pan and spread around with the back of the scoop or a spoon to form the pancake.
  • Allow to cook on one side until golden and slightly set before flipping.
  • Serve with reserved apples or apple slices and pure maple syrup.
  • This recipe makes four medium pancakes, but can be easily doubled or tripled.
