Ingredients for these OATMEAL AND APPLE Pancakes
These oatmeal and apple pancakes are slow food and require patience to make. Here is the list of ingredients:
- Grated apples. When it comes to choosing an apple for grating, you have the liberty to choose any color, be it green or red, and any type that you prefer. However, it is advisable to choose a firm apple over a ripe and soft one. If the apple is too ripe, it will release a lot of juice and become difficult to grate.
- Whole wheat flour. To achieve the best results in your recipe, it’s important to consider the type of flour you use. With that said, feel free to experiment with different types of flour to discover what works best for you. For a healthier alternative, you may want to try whole wheat flour which has a fine ground texture. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a more versatile option, all-purpose flour is an excellent choice that can be used in a variety of recipes.
- Oats. When making bread or pancakes, it is best to use regular oatmeal instead of instant oatmeal. If you find the texture of oatmeal unappealing in your baked goods, blend it into flour first or use oat flour.
- Almond milk or other plant-based milk.
These pancakes are delicious, they are super healthy and made with real ingredients. For me, when creating new recipes, it is very important that every recipe is healthy and kid, husband…family family-approved.
ARe THESE APPLE Pancakes fluffy?
These pancakes are made with grated apples and a divine mixture of flour and other ingredients, resulting in a super-rich and thick batter. They make for a complete and nutritious breakfast – a boost to regular pancakes. However, it’s important to note that these vegan pancakes are rich and dense, not fluffy.
THESE PANCAKES TAKE A BIT OF TIME TO COOK When you find yourself running short on time and need a quick breakfast option, consider making oatmeal pancakes in a blender instead of these. The blender oatmeal pancakes are much quicker to prepare and will still provide a delicious and satisfying meal option.
