Vegan Apple Pie Pancakes, made from spelt flour. Who wouldn’t love apple pie for breakfast? Chunks of tart apple, warming cinnamon and a delicious dough.
Happy Monday guys! When you read “pancakes” you probably wondered about the picture – why didn’t I show perfectly round, smooth pancakes? Well, my apple pie pancakes are not that kind of pancake! They have chunks of apple in them and the batter is a bit thicker, so the apple chunks actually stay in place when making the pancakes – therefore, no perfectly round, smooth pancakes, but delicious tasting ones that bring all the right flavors of a apple pie right to your breakfast plate. I used wholegrain spelt flour, but you can use whatever flour you enjoy – you could also mix whole grain spelt flour and regular spelt flour, so the pancakes would rise a bit more. Spelt flour also has quite the strong taste in its own, so if you don’t like that taste, I would recommend using a different flour 😉 You can also add some stewed apple, cinnamon and coconut palm sugar on top, like I did – it’s delicious! So, without further ado, let me tell you the recipe!
- 1 cup wholegrain spelt flour
- ¾ cup non dairy milk
- 1 chia "egg" (1 tbsp pulverized chia seeds + 3 tbsp water, let it sit for 15 minutes)
- ⅓ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 generous shake cinnamon
- 1 apple (tart)
- Coconut oil for frying
- Coconut palm sugar + cinnamon for dusting (optional)
- Chop the apple up on in small chunks (or however big you want them in your pancakes. If the apple is really large, you might want to stew whatever is too much with a little bit of cinnamon to serve with the pancakes.
- Mix all the ingredients together and whisk well, so there are no flour clumps left.
- Heat up a pan with some coconut oil and fry the pancakes in there - they are ready to flip when you see bubbles on the top and the edges are solid. I use a spoon to place the batter in the pan, this way I have more control over how many apple chunks go into each pancake.
