The cold months call for a warming bowl of oats - we get it! But after weeks of loving porridge-love and trying out multiple topping variations, it's time for something new! Don't worry, because this apple pancake recipe goes just as easily and is warming too (AND you can top it with as many extras as you like).
Is there a better combination than apple and cinnamon in any kind of baking dish? We think: (almost) no. So it's a no-brainer that both go into these deliciously fluffy pancakes. But you probably already knew that when you read the title. What's special about this apple pancake recipe (and what grandma probably never had on hand in the past): we put superfoods in it. And not just one mix, but two that give you real plant power.
Plant Protein is a vegan protein mix that works well in any kind of baking, as it is relatively neutral in taste. With a slight sweetness from banana and lucuma, it fits perfectly into this pancake recipe. It also makes the pancakes extra fluffy and is full of plant-based protein from rice and peas. So you'll be even able to convince all non-vegans when you whip up these apple pancakes at your next brunch.
Speaking of whipping up: Thanks to the added Energy Bomb Mix you can whip up anything you set your mind to as you’ll have enough power for all your goals. After all, what could be worse than the dreaded food coma after a decadent brunch buffet? Thanks to guarana and maca, you'll fight the afternoon energy slump with every bite and fill up on plant-based energy.
When the sta(c)kes are high: Make pancakes. Let's go!
