Apple Flapjack Pancakes | THM: E

apple-flapjack-pancakes-thm

These Apple Flapjack Pancakes are a delicious way to start of the day in THM E mode! Initially, I tried adding chunks of apple to the original Trim Healthy Pancake recipe in the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook. They fell apart, so I started from scratch, starting with whole, old fashioned oats instead of oat flour, adding applesauce as a binding agent, grating the apples, instead of dicing them, adding a bit more liquid (cashew or almond milk will do) and cinnamon for flavoring.

The result were pancakes that our kids inhaled in seconds before begging for more! This recipe serves two (4 pancakes), but can be easily doubled or tripled as needed.

Yield: 4 pancakes

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/3 cup egg whites
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened cashew milk (or almond milk)
  • 1 Tbsp xylitol
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 apple

Instructions

  1. Blend all ingredients except apple together in blender.
  2. Grate unpeeled apple with cheese grater (I used a true Canadian apple - the Macintosh!). Place grated apple in a fine sieve, hold over sink and squeeze out excess liquid by pressing a paper towel over top. Fold dried, grated apple pieces into pancake batter.
  3. Pour batter by 1/4 cup fulls onto the lightly greased non-stick griddle. Cook pancakes over medium heat. When edges begin to look dry, flip over and cook the other side.

Notes

Serve with sugar-free syrup, stevia-sweetened 0% Greek yogurt, and/or apple slices!

  1. Could these be made ahead and frozen? My daughter would LOVE these!! I would, too, but she will destroy my kitchen if I let her make these every day. Lol!! Thanks!!

  2. Jacinda – These may be my new breakfast or E snack obsession!! They are amazing – I doubled the recipe & they came together super quick & easy. Bagged up the leftovers & they’re in the freezer now – Praying they freeze well because these would be a great “go-to” breakfast on busy mornings…OK, who am I kidding, ANY mornings!! Thanks so much for the recipe, I’ll be trying others soon I’m very sure. Blessings to you & your family as you give thanks tomorrow!!

  3. These are sooo good! And, they’re filling! I topped ours with plain yogurt sweetened with Stevia. Amazing!! Great way to get my “E” in for today too! Thank you once again Jacinda. These are on my to-make-again list soon!
