Happy Halloween! Has everyone been able to stay away from the mass amounts of candy?! I’m fortunate in the fact that my food weaknesses come in the shape of frozen yogurt and chocolate cake, not so much candy. I know it’s a toughie though. My hubby has been leaving a trail of M&M’s and candy corn behind him all week.
I wanted to create something festive today without giving up this week’s hard work, so I decided to create pancakes (shocking, right?) that tasted like pie!
I am such a breakfast girl – I would seriously give up every other meal if I had to in order to chow down on breakfast food. Pair that with my newest apple and pumpkin obsession, and this is what you end up with: Apple-Pumpkin Pie Pancakes! Hubs got lucky that his contained dark chocolate chips too (he found himself a real catch!)
These are super quick and easy too! And per the usual, totally clean!
In order to make two servings, you’ll need:
- 1 cup 0% plain greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp pumpkin extract
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie seasoning
- dash sea salt
- 1 apple, cut into 1 inch thick pieces
- 1 tsp raw honey
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 2 T chopped pecans (optional)
You’ll want to start on the apple topping first, since it takes longer to make. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cut apple, skin side down, into a baking dish. Sprinkle cinnamon, nutmeg, and pecans into dish. Drizzle with honey last and place into the oven for 25 minutes.
While apples are baking prepare pancakes by combining all ingredients and mixing. Allow to sit for 5 minutes before cooking.
Spoon 1/4 cup batter into skillets and cook through. Once cooked, top with apple mixture, and drizzle organic maple syrup of fresh honey on top (if you choose!).
If you are following the 21 Day Fix, half of this recipe is 1 serving. If you use everything including pecans, your container count is as follows: 1 red, 1/4 green, 1 yellow, 1/2 blue, 1 tsp
Enjoy your last day of October, friends! And don’t forget to set your clock back tonight for an extra hour of sleep!
