Vegan, Gluten Free Apple Pie Pancakes

The leaves are turning, the weather is getting crisp and APPLES are in season. So what better way to honour the apple than a healthy, low fat apple pie PANCAKE!? The JMFitFood kitchen smells seriously seasonal right now 😉 Think low fat, gluten free, vegan (no eggs/dairy) and hella tasty. How can you go wrong! Treat yourself this weekend and whip up a batch for the family why don’t you?!

Pancake Mix:

2 cup rolled or quick oats
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp ground ginger

2 tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp maple syrup

1 tbsp raw Stevia

Topping:
1 small apple

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp nutmeg

Pancake Mix:

1) In a blender or food processor place all ingredients for pancakes. Blend until smooth then leave the mixture for 5 mins to thicken. Heat a non stick pan over medium heat (5-6 ish) and scoop 1/4 cup portions of batter (spray pan with coconut cooking spray if needed), spread slightly into rounds and cook for 2-3 mins a side or until cooked through (pressing slightly after flipping to flatten). Feel free to cover your pancake pan with a lid if you feel they aren’t cooked through to your liking. 1 Serving= 2 pancakes 🙂

Apple Pie Topping:

1) Chop the apple into small pieces and place in a small saucepan, cover with water and add in spices. Cook for 5 mins or until softened, drain. Top your pancakes with apple and sprinkle with more cinnamon!
