We all love those classic combo’s 🙂 If you want familiar comfort food for Pancake Day, here is my recipe for a warm, super sweet apple pie pancake:
Serves one, yields two pancakes
6 tbsps (1/3 cup) apple sauce/puree, organic
1 tsp stevia powder
100g wholemeal plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2-3 tbsps water
1/2 tbsp flaxseed, ground
organic, pure maple syrup to serve (optional)
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, stevia, baking powder, ground flaxseeds and apple sauce. You can use regular brown sugar as well if you like, or agave syrup, or pure maple syrup, or brown rice syrup; anything that has a low glycemic index or isn’t refined, basically. If the batter is too dry, add a few tablespoons of water or almond milk to loosen it. Spoon the batter into a lightly greased pan and shape it into two flat circles. When the top starts to bubble and the edges are firm, carefully flip the pancake and cook the other side. Serve with some maple syrup, or any topping of your choice.
Per serving (2 pancakes) you get 348 calories, 3.3g fat, zero cholesterol, 10.1g fiber, 5.76g sugars, 13g protein and 68.8g carbohydrates. Packed with goodness, in other words 🙂
I lost the ticket from the health store, but I remember the apple puree only cost me about £2.25 for a large pot of 700g (that’s a whole lot of apple puree, folks!). Considering I’m using but a few ingredients in this recipe, I don’t think I spent more than £1 creating two pancakes.
