Healthy Apple Pie Oatmeal Pancakes (gluten-free)

Most would assume that my favorite fruit to eat are bananas. But that is 100% wrong my friends!

If I had to choose one fruit to eat for the rest of my life, it would be apples. I flipping love and live for my apples. And I am the type of person who actually freaks out when they can’t find one to snack on. I love how juicy and hydrating they are. And they have the best crunch ever.

When it comes to flavors, I am not biased. I pretty much eat any apple besides gala. They are my least favorite by far. My favorite type of apple are obviously HONEY CRISPS! Only the best kind of apple in the entire world. I pretty much hoard them in the fall and if you live near me and can’t find organic honey crisps.. that is 100% my fault.

Today’s recipe is one of our family’s favorites! We are making my apple pie oatmeal pancakes. The easiest pancake recipe to whip up and they are a hit with Ezra too. So definitely try them with your bubbas at home. Plus they have very little sugar in them and are easy for Ez to feed himself.

You’ll see below you only need a few ingredients to make these and you will be in absolute heaven!

Ingredients you’ll need to make these apple oatmeal pancakes:

  • Unsweetened applesauce – there is no sub for these since it makes them extra apple pie-ish!
  • Gluten-free oats – quick oats or rolled oats work! Steel cut won’t work as well.
  • Egg – I haven’t tried flax egg)
  • Ground flaxseeds – these add extra fiber and bulk the pancakes up a bit
  • Vanilla extract
  • Coconut oil, ghee or butter – any works. You could also use avocado oil if you want a subtle oil
  • Cinnamon + apple pie seasoning
  • Apples – any of your faves! I used pink lady and honey crisps
  • Wedderspoon Organic Manuka Honey (code RACHL for 25% off) – truly the best honey ever. It is the only honey I personally use and Wedderspoon sources the highest quality manuka honey all the way from New Zealand. I love all of their products so much and most recently their new organic one is used daily over here.

How to make gluten-free apple pie pancakes using the food processor or blender:

  1. Add applesauce, 1 cup of the oats, egg, flaxseeds, maple syrup if using, vanilla, oil, cinnamon, apple pie spice and baking powder to food processor or blender and pulse/blend until fully combined
  2. Mix in the additional 1/4 cup oats and grated apple
  3. Heat a large skillet with oil or butter on high for a minute or so
  4. Once warm, turn the heat to low and add about 2-3 tablespoons of batter onto the pan to form a pancake (I fit about 3 pancakes at a time on the pan)
  5. Cook for 3-4 minutes then gently flip and cook for another 2 minutes or until ready
  6. Remove from heat and enjoy with caramelized cinnamon apples!
