Saturday mornings are for sleeping in and pancakes. This has been a tradition in our house for longer then I can remember. Now that school is back in session, our Saturday morning ritual is something we look forward to all week! It’s a chance to relax and reconnect over a yummy meal. Last weekend, however, we switched things up a bit. I swapped my go-to pancake recipe for the apple oatmeal pancakes shown above. I added oats which are rich in dietary fiber and can help reduce cholesterol. To keep things healthy, I skipped the syrup and topped our pancakes with baked Granny Smith apples – so good!
For the oats, I chose Bob’s Red Mill Quick Cooking Oats because they are kiln roasted giving them a wholesome flavor. Plus if your family is gluten free, Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Oats are sourced gluten free, packaged in Bob’s Red Mill’s 100% gluten free facility and tested every step of the way to ensure their gluten free status.
Apple Oatmeal Pancake Recipe
Cooking oatmeal pancakes is a little different than your average pancake. They are dense and require more time on the griddle to cook through. I turned the heat down to medium low and let them cook for about five minutes before flipping.
- 2 cups Bob Red's quick oats
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbs sugar
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 Granny Smith apples, diced
- 1 Tbs sugar
- In a large bowl, mix together quick oats, baking soda, buttermilk, and applesauce. Let stand for 5 minutes.
- In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
- Add the oil, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon to the oatmeal mixture and combine.
- Mix the dry ingredients into the oat mixture and stir until blended.
- In a small pan combine apples, 2 Tbs water and sugar.
- Bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat and simmer until apples are soft.
- If apples become dry, add more water.
This recipe has quickly become a favorite in my house, and I hope your family enjoys it just as much!
