Really delicious vegan apple oatmeal pancakes.

Serves: 5 person(s)

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 5 mins


  • 3 small apples
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract, or to taste (optional)


Peel, then chop apples. Add about a teaspoon of water. Put in small pan and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until soft. Mash apples with the back of a spoon or potato masher, leaving some chunky apple pieces.

In a separate bowl, mix all dry ingredients together. Add water and mashed apples. Stir until combined.

Drop about 1/4 cup mixture onto a heated skillet that has been lightly sprayed with oil.

Makes about a 4-inch sized pancake.

Variations:Pancakes can be made with bananas by replacing the 3 apples with 1 ripe banana.

Tips:If desired, add a tablespoon of maple syrup, for a little sweetness (optional). It will be a little thick; spread it with a spoon.
