Thick Healthy and Pillow-like
What better way to start your morning with these fuss-free apple pie pancakes. You stack them up, add your toppings and dig straight in!
Let’s serve you with a few of the many perks; these pillow pancakes are flour-less, gluten-free, vegan, sugar-free, egg-free and freezer friendly too!
You might get a unsweetened-applesauce-baby food association, but trust us on this. The homemade apple pie flavor in these fluffy pancakes is heavenly. The applesauce naturally acts as a binder and keeps the pillow pancakes cake-like and moist on the inside, and slightly crispy and on the outside.
Add a scoop of your favorite ice cream over the warm apple pie pancakes cakes and enjoy a delicious guilt-free dessert.
APPLE PIE PANCAKES
1 cup rolled oats can sub for quinoa or buckwheat flakes
1/4 cup milk of choice (we used unsweetened almond milk)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce 112 grams
1 tsp apple pie spice see notes above to make your own
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp sticky sweetener of choice we used maple syrup
1 small apple, chopped finely

APPLE PIE PANCAKES:
Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Alternatively; use large mixing bowl. (Start with dry ingredients, before adding in the wet ones) Mix until fully combined.
Let the batter sit for at least 5 minutes, for the mixture to thicken.
Preheat a nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, pour batter in the pan (using a 1/4 measuring cup as a scoop) Cook for 1-2 minutes or until golden on the edges and a spatula can easily flip it. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until thick, fluffy and crispy.
Repeat until all the batter is used up. If possible, cover the pan when cooking. Serve up or allow to cool and freeze individual portions.
APPLE PIE COMPETE: (optional)
Stovetop or microwave, heat up 1 chopped apple in a layer of water and apple pie spice until soft and tender. Sprinkle with extra cinnamon and top your pancakes with them.
Your Fluffy Flourless Apple Pie Pancakes can be batch cooked and leftovers can be refrigerated or frozen.
