- 3/4 cup flour
- 1-2 Tbsp ground flax
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbsp applesauce (or butter)
- 1 medium apple, peeled and grated (use a soft flesh apple such as McIntosh or Spartan. Trust me, if you use something more crunchy like Royal Gala it won't be the same. I know, I tried)
In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Then add the milk, the egg and the applesauce and mix, as you would for regular pancake batter, making sure to not remove all the little lumps. Grate a peeled apple with a cheese grater (should make about 1 cup, but if there's more than a cup, I would not put it all in.) Mix just enough to incorporate.
Grease and heat a frying pan. Once you put the batter in the pan, lower the heat to about medium, med-high. Take not that they take a bit longer to cook in the middle than regular pancakes. Top with some maple syrup and voila!
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
