You guys. It’s November, but it feels like spring! It was 75 degrees yesterday! The girls had so much fun playing in the leaves, drawing with sidewalk chalk, riding bikes and getting fresh air.
Oh, to be a kid again.
Speaking of kids, these two of mine love pancakes. Like LOVE pancakes. If they could only eat one thing for the rest of their lives it would be pancakes. So, I like to try to sneak a little extra nutritional value into their pancakes. Like adding pumpkin. The girls love pumpkin pancakes, but hubby not so much. So, I changed it up this weekend and made Apple Cinnamon Pancakes.
I had a big bag of Granny Smith apples that were perfect for apple cinnamon pancakes! I love Granny Smith apples, but I was willing to sacrifice a few for the pancakes. And it was worth it! These pancakes are delicious! The girls (and hubby) gobbled them up! I had to make a second batch because they were all gone before I could even eat one!
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup shredded Granny Smith apple (two small apples)
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp sugar
- In a large bowl combine the butter, egg, milk and apple. In a small bowl combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar. Add the flour mixture to the large bowl and stir until combined.
- Oil a griddle preheated over medium-high heat. Pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake. Cook on one side until browned, flip and cook until the other side is browned.
- Serve warm with maple syrup.
