Apple and Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes

Apple and Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes

Despite the fact that my weekend was pretty busy, I managed to find the time to make a nice breakfast. I have been enjoying pancakes for breakfast on the weekends recently and this weekend apples were on my mind. I was thinking that pancakes with apple pie flavours would be great! I decided to go with a healthier recipe and made the batter with whole wheat flour and ground up rolled oats. While I was thinking about oats my mind wandered to apple cinnamon oatmeal and apple crisp with a rolled oat topping and I thought why not add some whole rolled oats for some additional texture? Speaking of texture, I wanted there to be nice big chunks of apple in the pancakes so I added some sliced up apple. I also wanted to maximize the apple flavour so I added some apple sauce. It was the perfect excuse to make some more roasted apple sauce. Of course I could not forget the cinnamon and I rounded the pancakes out with some ample syrup. But I did not stop there; I also topped the pancakes off with some caramelized apples and maple syrup. The apple and cinnamon oatmeal pancakes topped with caramelized apple turned out great! The were nice and moist and light and fluffy and good! I really liked the chunks of apple in the pancakes and the overall texture of the pancakes was rally nice. These pancakes were definitely full of apple flavour. I can't wait to make these again!

I can't make pancakes. There's something wrong with me doing it. I can do much more complicated stuff, but pancakes. I'll take this recipe and give it a try. Who knows...

Suzer said...

These look fantastic and I just bought some real maple syrup here in Oz, plus would like to make a higher GI brekky, so will invest in some wheat flour too.

MaryBeth said...

This is a really good looking and might I say a very healthy looking breakfast, or If your anything like me it could also be a dinner.

Sharon said...

Oh wow Kevin! You never fail to impress me! Delicious!

Those look outstanding, Kevin! I'm usually too lazy to make a fancy breakfast, but this is really tempting me!

Patsyk said...

My husband is the one who makes breakfast on the weekends, so pancakes are his forte, not mine. I am guessing that each bite of yours was a bit of heaven!

Debbie said...

Oh my weakness is apples. I had apples on my mind today too in one of my recipes I posted today. That apple pizza looks so good too, I must have missed that post, definitely going to give both of these a try, I will bookmark them. :)

I love this. It's like a test of how much apple you can fit into a plate of pancakes. It sounds delicious.

Carolina said...

Hi Kevin, followed your blog for a couple of weeks now, and I really like your recipes. I'm a vegetarian, and you have lots of gorgeous looking and sounding veggie recipes. Thanks! Have not yet tried any of them, but this weekend I will make one of your farro-salades (if I can find Farro, otherwise I'll maybe use semi di orzo) and probably your apple-pancakes.

YUM! I've made it a point to start baking with more whole grains, and these pancakes will certainly be added to that repertoire.

You know, that breakfast barely resembles what I had this morning: a grapefruit. It's a cruel world.

Try adding some boiled cider (availble at www.bakerscatalog.com). It give apple pie a real punch. Love your site.
