It’s almost apple season and we’ve got a recipe that will make you feel like grandma just made you something special. Using our basic Old Fashion Buttermilk Pancake recipe as a base, we’ve added oats, cinnamon, brown sugar and applesauce to your morning pancake. It could double as a cookie or a granola bar. Great leftover and as a grab-and-go snack for kids snacks and school lunches!
- In a mixing bowl combine flour, oats, baking powder, soda, salt, brown sugar and cinnamon.
- In a liquid measuring cup measure the buttermilk, egg, applesauce, oil and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine.
- Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and stir with a wire whisk. Add the diced apple and stir gently. If batter is too thick, add water-but no more than over ¼ cup.
- Let rest on the counter for 5-10 minutes.
- Heat a pan (non-stick or buttered heavy cast iron skillet) to medium. Stir the batter gently to release some of the air bubbles and add a quarter cup to the pan. With the back of a spoon, spread the mixture out so it’s evenly spread- into about a 5 to 6 inch size pancake.
- After the top starts to bubble up, flip the pancake and finish cooking until both sides are golden brown and cooked through.
- Serve warm with maple syrup, chopped apples and toasted pecans.
