Apple pancakes are easy healthy breakfast option for every day! It is one of the best gluten free breakfast ideas with apples and banana for you and your family. Moreover, these pancakes are vegan and sugar free!
What’s great, this apple banana recipe will fill you and give you energy. Apple pancakes are sweet and tasty, so this is good healthy breakfast to pair with morning smoothie, tea or coffee, or whatever you drink. I hope it’s not alcohol, haha! Have a great start of the day!
Also these apple pancakes are packed with flax meal and oat meal. I usually make these at home with old coffee grinder, before making the recipe. Separately grind old-fashioned oats, then linseeds (flax seeds). Keep in mind that flax seed meal has maximum benefits, when freshly ground!
Flax seeds are great substitute to flour. They contain lignans, which protects against cancer. They also have only healthy fats or omega-3 fatty acids, which helps lower cholesterol. Moreover, flax seeds are great source of fiber, protein, micro and macro elements, as well as natural antioxidants. And of course flax seed will not only give you energy, but also good portion of vitamins A, B1 (thiamine or antineurine), B6 (pyridoxine), F and phytosterols.
Serving apple pancakes
You can serve apple pancakes with vegan sugar free homemade apple sauce. Moreover, you can add honey or yogurt, if you wish so. I also added cinnamon and cardamom for the flavor, so you can add your favorite spices as well such as allspice for fall mood!
By the way, this recipe makes only 5 apple pancakes, but you can double or triple the recipe and prepare your banana oatmeal pancakes ahead. However it is great for one or two servings! Such a simple and delicious breakfast.
How to sweeten apple pancakes
Bananas are naturally sweet and I used sweet apples for the recipe. So despite there is no sugar, these apple cinnamon pancakes are naturally sweet and tasty. That’s so great to have a good healthy breakfast in the morning!
How to store apple pancakes
Store them in the fridge for about 3-4 days to have healthy quick breakfast or snack. Just heat them in the pan in the morning for few minutes or microwave, if it is easier for you.
