These are some delicious spiced pancakes that will impress without a lot of fuss.  My kids just eat these up and keep telling me I “have to put these on my web site,” so here they are.  They’re very easy to put together if you’ve already made my Homemade Pancake Mix ahead of time.  I usually make a big batch on a weekend morning and then freeze the rest.  They reheat great in the toaster from frozen for those busy mornings when you’re scrambling to get some food in bellies.

Apple Spice is Nice

Don’t mess around with just a dash of spice if you want especially pleasing apple spice pancakes.  Spice it up with more apple spice and you’ll get that warm apple pie flavor for breakfast.

Use good Applesauce

Using good Organic applesauce with no added sugar is the way to go with these and other recipes.  If you’ve ever bit into a crisp, juicy Organic apple, you’ll know they just taste better.  Organic applesauce is made with those already delicious apples so they don’t require adding junk to make the applesauce taste better.

I still remember my shock and appall on a trip to the store when my 1st born was a baby just starting to eat softer table food and I wanted to find him some applesauce to try as a treat. Almost every applesauce I picked up had High Fructose Corn Syrup in it! I couldn’t believe my eyes! I hate HFCS and here’s why. They’re selling this stuff that is touted as a food for children and one of the 1st ingredients is HFCS.  I was so disappointed in grocery store options for children after seeing that. That’s when I started scrutinizing every label of food or snacks I purchased for my kids even more and felt good about making a lot of my own baby food at home; knowing exactly what I was feeding my babies.

Applesauce is now used in a lot of recipes, especially for diabetics to sweeten up baked goods without all the added sugar, but do check your labels to make sure you’re not just adding garbage to your cooking efforts.

Give these Apple Spice Pancakes a try and let me know how they turn out for you!

  4. Once wet ingredients thoroughly combined add to large dry ingredient mixing bowl and combine until no longer any dry clumps.
  5. Spray olive oil on griddle or pans if necessary (I do not need to grease my griddle at all with the butter in the pancake mix and how my griddle cooks)

I serve these with real maple syrup (not the HFCS laden fake syrup) and a lot of fresh fruit.
