Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Apple & Cinnamon pancakes, ready to serve, with tender
Apple Slices and caramelized Cinnamon-Sugar
 These apple-cinnamon pancakes are simple to make and healthy, but at the same time festive and luxurious.

These are great to serve for a Christmas Eve Breakfast, since they are vegan, but still something special.

They were inspired by a non-vegan cookbook I read years ago (perhaps one of the Culinaria series - I cannot recall for sure), and I veganized them and adapted them to my whole wheat, low fat, vegan pancake mix.

First, Slice some apple wedges VERY THINLY, and get out your Cinnamon sugar (I keep some on hand all the time - 4 parts sugar to 1 part cinnamon in a shaker bottle.

Then, prepare the pancake mix, and pre-heat the skillet.

and Cinnamon Sugar on top.
Pour the batter into the skillet, as for any other pancakes (oil may be used if desired, but is not necessary in a non-stick skillet).

On top of the pancake batter, lay slices of apple in a single layer.

Sprinkle generously with Cinnamon-Sugar.

Cooking the Apple and Cinnamon Side.
Wait for bubbles to form, and for edges to dry slightly.

Flip, and cook the other side. Let them cook a little longer than you would with normal pancakes - this lets the Apple cook, and the Cinnamon-Sugar caramelize.

Remove from pan and serve.

These are sweet enough to serve without buttery-spread and syrup, but those things may be added if you like.

Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
