10-Minute Apple Pancakes [Vegan]
For the Pancakes:
- 1 cups all-purpose flour (you can use gluten-free)
- 1 1/4 cups oatmeal
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus extra to serve
- 1 1/4 cups almond or oat milk, plus more if needed
- 1/4 cup unsweetened apple puree 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- coconut oil, for frying
For the Baked Apples:
- 1 apple, halved and cored
- 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
- 1 teaspoon coconut sugar or ground cinnamon
- If you're making the baked apple, preheat the oven to 350°F fan. Cut each apple half into around 5 slices and mix with the coconut oil, coconut sugar, and a pinch of cinnamon. Spread out on a lined cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes until golden.
- Place the flour, oats, baking powder, and cinnamon in a bowl and slowly pour the almond or oat milk into the mixture, whisking until smooth.
- Add the apple puree, maple syrup, and chia seeds and stir through then give the mixture a final whisk. It should be a smooth, thick batter, but you can add a little more almond or oat milk if you need to.
- Place a large skillet over medium heat and add the coconut oil (start with about 1 1/2 tablespoon). Once melted, spoon 3 tablespoons of batter into the skillet to make a round pancake. Let it cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until the top is no longer runny, then flip it over and let it cook for a further 2 minutes.
- Repeat with the rest of the mixture until all of the pancakes are ready. You can keep them warm in an oven set to 225°F fan if needed.
- Serve the pancakes with the baked apple slices and a pinch of cinnamon.
