Ingredients

Pancakes

  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour (spelt or all purpose are fine)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup natural granulated sweetener/sugar of choice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2 heaping tablespoons apple sauce (if you're in Australia, I simply use the Coles or Woolies brands)
  • 2 tablespoons light butter (I use Flora light) or coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 apple , chopped finely

Caramel Apples

  • 1 apple , cored and sliced thinly
  • 2 tablespoons light butter
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar (or try coconut sugar for a healthier option)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup low fat milk

Instructions

Pancakes:

  • In a medium sized bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sweetener/sugar and cinnamon. Make a well in the centre, and add the vanilla, egg, apple sauce, butter/coconut oil and milk, whisking until a smooth batter is formed and free from lumps. Fold the apples through the batter.
  • Pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto a non stick pan/griddle sprayed with cooking oil (I use coconut oil), on low - medium heat.
  • Cook pancakes as you normally would, flipping when golden and removing when cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, make your caramel apples sauce in between flipping pancakes.

Caramel Apples:

  • Combine apples, butter, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat until butter is melted. Add half of the milk while stirring and bring to a gentle simmer. When the syrup begins to thicken, add the rest of the milk, stirring again, and simmer on low heat until apples are soft. Set aside and watch the caramel magic happen while it thickens into a heavenly caramel syrup!
  • Meanwhile, make the pancakes!
  • To serve, place 3 pancakes on plate with apple syrup. Option: top with crushed nuts
