Carmalized Apple Coconut Pancakes

It’s fall and while pumpkins are all dandy and good, I’m partial to apples. I’m also partial to butter.

What You’ll Need:

1) Apples. I’m sure a real baker/chef would recommend a specific type of apple for caramelizing but alas, you just have me and I think Fuji apples are pretty great for this.

2) Butter. I used a mix of real butter and Smart Balance although neither are all that good for you. Live a little, throw a whole lot of that stuff in there.

3) Cinnamon. You can also add nutmeg.

4) Sugar. I used coconut sugar mostly because I don’t own normal sugar.

5) Coconut pancake mix. It’s a Trader Joe’s thing. Trust me.

Put on your aprons, pals.

Step 1. Cut your apples. Dice them. Chop them. Cut ’em up.

Step 2. Add butter to a pan and let it melt. Then add cinnamon. Lot’s of cinnamon.

Add however much butter you think you need depending on how the amount of apples you’re going to cook.

Step 3. Mix apples and butter/cinnamon mixture. Let simmer for 10 minutes on medium heat, or until soft.

Step 4. Make the pancake batter. Slap some batter on a heated pan and cook them based on the box directions.

Step 5. Assemble your pancake plate.
