Super simply to whip up, these pancakes are the perfect cozy breakfast with a cup of coffee or tea. The warm notes of cinnamon in the pancakes pair perfectly with the sweetness of the maple syrup and apples!




  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp plain protein powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 1/2 an apple, sliced
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp oil
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • pinch of clove


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, maple syrup, oil, milk, and vanilla.
  2. Gently mix in the flour, protein powder, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt, leaving some lumps.
  3. Cook in a pan until the bubbles form and pop, and the bottom is golden brown. Flip and cook until the other side is golden brown as well.
  4. To make the caramelized apples, place the apples and walnuts in a pan on medium heat. Drizzle on the maple syrup and oil, and sprinkle with cinnamon and clove. Stir and let cook for a few minutes, until the apples are nice and caramelized.
  5. Top the pancakes with the caramelized apples, and extra maple syrup, nut butter, or whatever you desire!


Make it Nut Free: Remove the walnuts.

Make it Vegan: Use plant milk and replace the egg with a flax egg, 3 tbsp aquafaba, or an extra tsp baking powder (Disclaimer, I cannot vouch for the results).

Make it Gluten Free: Use gluten free all-purpose flour, oat flour, or light buckwheat flour.
