Thank you so much for visiting my blog. This is a story about 1 girl and her journey to make herself and her family healthy spiritually, mentally and physically. Throughout my journey I have successes and "learning opportunities". I share them all here - the good, the bad and the ugly. As I grow and learn, I will share it here.

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes for One

This is a pretty easy recipe - the hardest part is shredding the apple. It will probably be a make ahead and freeze or Saturday meal. It is a keeper for certain. This recipe was easily quadrupled for the whole family. The original recipe gave some nutritional information but not carbs, so I put in the recipe builder to calculate the points (listed at bottom of recipe). ENJOY!



Apple Cinnamon Pancakes for One

Ingredients (1 serving)

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp granulated cane sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • tiny pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup low fat buttermilk, preferably organic, well-shaken
  • 1/2 cup shredded peeled apple, preferably organic
  • Butter spray
  • pure maple syrup, preferably grade B

Instructions
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour through cinnamon.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg white and buttermilk.
  • Stir dry ingredients into the wet just until moistened. Fold in shredded apple. Set batter aside to rest.
  • Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium/medium-low heat.
  • When hot, spoon the batter into the skillet by the 1/4 cupful. The batter will be quite thick, so you may need to gently spread it out into circles in the skillet.
  • When bubbles appear on the surface of the batter, (about 2-3 minutes), the pancakes are ready to be flipped.
  • Flip pancakes and let cook for another 2 minutes or so, or until golden brown.
  • Serve with maple syrup.
