I recently wrote an article about a simple, healthy pancake recipe that only requires three ingredients.

The recipe got a great response from readers so I decided to iterate and make a healthy version of apple-cinnamon pancakes using the same recipe. WOW, were they delicious! The recipe is still quick and simple, but with one additional ingredient (apples) I was able to up the flavor a TON! Here’s how to make them…

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 large banana
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • Handful of almonds
  • Cinnamon
  • Dash of vanilla extract
  • 2/3 of a medium-sized apple

Instructions:

Step 1: The Pancakes

  1. Put the eggs, banana, oats & almonds in a blender. Blend until thick with no chunks. (Pro Tip: The magic bullet works wonders for this recipe.)
  2. Pour into a large bowl.
  3. Add protein powder, a dash of cinnamon, and vanilla extract.
  4. Mix well until thick like pancake batter. (Pro-tip: If the batter seems runny/watery you can add a little more blended oats/almonds to thicken it up.)
  5. Heat a large pan over medium heat and add a dash of coconut oil (any type of cooking spray works as well).
  6. Place 1/4 cup batter into the pan and cook for about 1.5 minutes. Then flip to the other side and cook for 1 minute or until golden brown.
  7. Start apple cinnamon topping (see below)
  8. Serve on a medium-sized plate. Gently pour on the apple cinnamon topping and enjoy!

*If you don’t have a blender you can mash the banana with a fork and then manually mix in the remaining ingredients.*

Step 2: Apple Cinnamon Topping

  1. While the pancakes are cooking in the large pan, dice 2/3 of an apple into small to medium-sized pieces.
  2. Heat a small pan over low/medium heat. Add a small spoonful of coconut oil.
  3. Place the diced apples into the pan and lightly sprinkle a tablespoon of cinnamon on top.
  4. Cook on low/medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 5–8 minutes or until golden brown. (Pro Tip: I prefer to cook on low heat while my pancakes are cooking in a large pan.)
  5. Add a tablespoon of water occasionally to keep the apples moist.
  6. Once the pancakes are completely cooked, gently pour on the apple cinnamon topping.

I really love this recipe. It’s quick, easy, and a great healthy alternative to the traditional pancake recipe. And most importantly, I’m not remorseful after eating a whole stack myself!
