It was a cold autumnal day and we were really craving pancakes. We had some frozen apples in the freezer so decided to make cinnamon apple pancakes! Try the recipe below and let us know what you think, we will be making them again for sure!
Serves 6 Pancakes
50g Oats Blended or oat flour
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein
1tsp Baking Powder
1tsp Ground Cinnamon
½ tsp Ground Ginger
50ml Milk (add a bit at a time as you may need more or less)
60g Bramley Apples (we used frozen apples from the garden)
Maple Syrup/honey (optional)
Blend your oats until they form a flour
Add the rest of the dry ingredients and blend.
Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until it forms a batter.
Heat your pan (medium/high heat) and melt some coconut oil.
Add a table spoon of mixture to your pan and flip once bubbles appear on the surface.
In a separate pan you will need to stew your Apples with the cinnamon and water until they are piping hot.
Stack the pancakes and add the topping.
Autumn is without a doubt one of our favourite times of year, we absolutely love summer but there is something about autumn that is so comforting. Grabbing a jumper and getting cosy on the sofa whilst sipping a hot beverage is perfection.
Nothing quite says autumn like the delicious spices: Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves oh the list could go on for days.
In our porridge we decided to use Cinnamon. Cinnamon has been used for decades in both sweet and savoury dishes which you can buy either ground or rolled up as a stick.
This spiced apple porridge reminds us of a hot apple pie!
