I have to be honest, when it comes to pancakes; it’s the toppings that will always be the decision maker for me.

Apple cinnamon pancakes…sounds good. Topped with warm stewed apples in a caramelize cinnamon and honey sauce….ya I’m sold!

Which is not to say that these paleo apple pancakes aren’t delicious on their own, because they are really good. They are light and fluffy with lots of shredded apple stirred into the batter along with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves (which is my new favourite spice).

To save time you could make the stewed apple portion of this recipe a day or two in advance and then just reheat them right before serving. Alternatively if you have leftovers, these stewed apples would be fantastic on this Grain Free Apple Cinnamon Porridge (can you tell I am really into Apple Cinnamon flavoured breakfasts?)

I have to confess that I am not a fan of pancake stacks, I prefer to eat them one at a time to maximize the syrup and topping to pancake ratio.

I normally top my pancakes with honey because maple syrup isn’t allowed on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet but for this recipe I think syrup or honey is completely unnecessary. The stewed apples have a delicious caramelized sauce that creates those drool worthy trickles down the side of the pancakes that you normally get from syrup.

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • pinch cloves
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 apple grated

Stewed Apple Topping

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 apples peeled, cored and chopped into small pieces
  • 1 tbsp honey

Flip and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes on the other side. Repeat with the remaining batter. 
  • Serve the pancakes in a big stack topped with the stewed apples. 

Stewed Apples

  • Melt the coconut oil in a small sauce pan on medium heat. Add in the chopped apples and stir to coat. 
  • Add the honey, cinnamon and liquid (either water or apple juice) and let simmer on low heat for approximately 5 minutes until the apples are tender and most of the liquid has evaporated.
