Whip up these healthy whole wheat apple spiced pancakes for a breakfast (or dinner!) with some autumnal flare!
When my husband and I lived in New York City years ago, the Union Square farmer’s market in New York City seemed to be a landing place for every apple in the tri-state area. There was booth upon booth of apples of every variety, each farmer proudly proclaiming their fruit to be the best. Looking back, I wish I had this recipe at my fingertips when we sauntered back to our apartment with our haul of freshly picked apples.
Since I’m not much of a pie baker, I try to dream up other ways to cook with apples, such as crostini with goat cheese (okay, my son actually came up with this awesome little appetizer), healthy baked apples, one of my favorite spaghetti squash recipes and whole wheat muffins. They all have a healthy spin to them, and this whole wheat pancake recipe easily takes its place as one of our favorites.
This recipe is my most recent contribution to The Pioneer Woman’s Food & Friends section on her site. If you haven’t checkout the new section yet, there are some really helpful tutorials and cooking tips, as well as some pretty amazing recipes from the contributors.
