Apple pancakes

These healthy apple-oatmeal pancakes are a healthy alternative to regular pancakes. They incorporate all healthy ingredients that are good for you, such as whole-wheat flour, oatmeal, apples, nuts, and cinnamon.


(Makes 6 pancakes)

1/4 cup Rolled oats
1/3 cup milk (skim/soy/almond/oat milk)
1 egg
1 apple – grated
6 tablespoons whole grain flour
1 handful of nuts – chopped (hazelnuts, walnuts, or almonds)
2 tablespoons canola or sunflower seed oil
Greek-style Yogurt


  1. In a medium bowl, combine 1/4 cup of rolled oats and 1/3 cup of milk of your choice. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes.
  2. While waiting, in a separate bowl, beat one egg and add 1/2 cup of grated apple (with skin on).
  3. After 10 minutes, combine the mixtures of two bowls into one and mix well.
  4. Slowly mix in 6 tablespoons of whole grain flour into the bowl and mix well.
  5. Take a handful of nuts of your choice and grind them in a blender. You can also use already sliced almonds that you buy at the store. Add the nuts to your mixture.
  6. Add a dash of cinnamon (if you prefer) and mix well.
  7. Put a pan on the stove on medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of oil. Wait a few minutes for the oil to heat up.
  8. Using a big spoon, scoop the mixture up and put on the pan in pancake shape. This mixture will make 6 pancakes. Cook pancakes on each side by flipping them until they form a golden brown crust.
  9. When ready, serve with chopped fruits of your choice or berries, and some Greek-style yogurt.
