For the apple topping:
For the pancakes:
½cupwhitewhole wheat flour
½cupwhite all-purpose flour
¼cupunsweetened vanilla almond milk
¼cup2% fat Greek yogurt
Additional toppings of choiceI recommend almond butter and maple syrup!
In a small bowl, toss together diced apple, cinnamon, water and oil. Pour into a small saucepan and heat over medium. Continue to cook while you make the pancakes. Note, you may need to reduce heat down to low depending on how hot your stove gets.
To make the pancakes, first combine flours, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
Whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Slowly stir into flour mixture until just combined
(there will still be lumps). Add in yogurt and stir until just combined, again you want a few lumps
Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat (or if you have a griddle, heat to ~325 degrees F).
Grease pan with a little butter or nonstick cooking spray. Once pan is warm, pour a generous ¼ cup of
batter onto the pan for each pancake. Let cook until bubbles form around the pancake, about 3-4 minutes, and then flip. Cook another 1-2 minutes or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter.
Another option, since it’s just for two people, is to make two diner-sized pancakes. I like to do that by heating two medium-sized
skillets and evenly distributing the batter between the skillets. It will take longer to cook, but is an easy way to have both pancakes ready to eat at the same time!
Divide pancakes between two plates and top with cooked apples, maple syrup, and almond butter. Enjoy!
