Apple Cinnamon Pancakes


I really didn’t  think that this would be anything special, but it was seriously so yummy! The apple wasn’t at all annoying in it which sometimes can happen with fruit in pancakes. Do you know what I mean? Like you make some pancakes and throw in something and either you can hardly tell it’s there or it’s just weird. These Apple Cinnamon Pancakes were warm and delicious. The spice was just enough and the apples were soft and perfect. Enjoy!!

Can Pancake Batter Be Made The Night Before?

You can make pancake batter ahead of time.

Mix it up, put it in a container with a tight fitting lid.

Baking powder may lose some of its potency over night, so you may want to sprinkle a little baking powder into the batter and give it a quick stir before cooking.

Are Apples Good For Your Heath?

Apples are extremely high in antioxidants and dietary fiber.

Apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.

Can Pancakes Be Reheated?

To reheat, stack pancakes separated with paper towels, on a microwave safe plate. 

Microwave on high for 1 ½ – 2 minutes or until pancakes are heated through.
