Description

Fluffy, apple, and cinnamon pancakes stacked up and topped with warm cinnamon apples. Drizzle over some maple syrup for the perfect fall breakfast!


Ingredients

Topping:

  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) coconut oil
  • 1/2 medium apple (75 g), peeled and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon (2 g) cinnamon powder
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) water

Pancakes:

  • 1/2 cup (60 g) cassava flour
  • 1/4 cup (30 g) tapioca flour
  • 1 teaspoon (2 g) cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon (2 g) baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2 g) baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.5 g) salt
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) unsweetened applesauce
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) unsweetened coconut milk
  • Coconut oil, for cooking

To serve:

  • Maple syrup, optional

Instructions

  1. Melt 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of coconut oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the apple, cinnamon, and water to the saucepan and simmer over low heat for 15 minutes until soft, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the cassava flour, tapioca flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the applesauce and coconut milk to the bowl and whisk until smooth.
  4. Heat a nonstick pan or skillet over medium heat. If using a pan or skillet that isn’t nonstick, add 1 or 2 teaspoons (5 to 10 ml) of coconut oil to help the pancakes from sticking.
  5. Pour about 1/4 cup (60 ml) of batter into the pan and gently spread with the back of the scoop.
  6. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes on the first side until bubbles form on the top of the pancake. Carefully flip and continue to cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes until cooked through. Repeat with the remaining batter cooking 2 or 3 pancakes each batch.
  7. Serve the pancakes immediately topped with warm cinnamon apples and optional maple syrup, if desired.
