Vegan Apple Pancakes with Cinnamon Apples

What do you do with a few bruised apples and a little bit of applesauce left in the jar? Make breakfast.

You will notice the cinnamon apples were served on the side when I made this dish, this is only due to the fact I had never made either of these dishes before and didn't want to ruin both halves of the meal if one half wasn't up to par. This was an excellent meal and in the future I would serve the pancakes with the cinnamon apples on top of the pancakes. I would say you could even use cinnamon apple sauce if you wanted to in the pancake recipe, I just used what I had on hand which was unsweetened.

Vegan Apple Pancakes

3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 1/2 cups plain soy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
oil for the pan

Combine the flours, salt, baking powder, and sugars in a medium bowl. Add the soy milk, vanilla, and applesauce. Stir together until combined, some lumps are fine.

Oil a pan or griddle and warm over medium heat. Pour the batter onto the pan or griddle and cook until bubbles form on top. Then flip and cook until golden brown.

  1. The apples were good enough to be a snack on their own.
