Helpful tips
  • I make these pancakes with Macintosh apples, but you can make them with any apple you'd make an apple pie with.
  • I use spelt flour with a lot of my recipes, but if you only have all purpose white flour, it works perfectly. I've never tried to make this recipe with whole wheat but I know it will work.
  • If you don't have a microwave, you can sauté the apples for 3 - 5 minutes. Don't over cook them, just soften them.
  • If you can't eat these pancakes in one sitting, they store well.  Layer them with cut pieces of parchment paper and place in a plastic baggie then put in the fridge.
  • They heat up nicely in a toaster oven.
