Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

by Kelli H. on May 2, 2012

You may be wondering where in the world my maple syrup is, or how come I’m only showing that little stack of pancakes with a pat of butter. Well, you see, my blog is based off the recipes I make on any given day. I don’t plan out what I’ll feature on the blog. It’s more like, oh, I made some tasty pancakes, so I guess I’ll share them. Since this is how I blog, I’m usually out of certain things, i.e., syrup. You see, maple syrup is real expensive around these parts, so it’s not something I always keep stocked. I mean, really, $8.99 for a tiny thing of maple syrup? David always complains about this, but what can ya do? I’m livin’ on a budget!

So, I ate my little stack with a large pat of butter and some tiny drips of honey. These pancakes were already pretty sweet, so I didn’t feel like I was missing out on too much. Now, if you’re lucky enough to keep maple syrup stocked in your house, then by all means, use it! But, I doubt I have to tell you that. 

Regardless, they were mighty tasty, and definitely worth sharing. If you ever find yourself with an extra Chobani Apple Cinnamon Greek Yogurt, then make these! It’s a great use of that flavor of Chobani. Plus, they smell heavenly.

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes
adapted from Being the Secret Ingredient

1 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 (6 oz) Apple Cinnamon Chobani Greek Yogurt
1 cup milk
1 large egg

1. Preheat a griddle and lightly coat with cooking oil
2. In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients.
3. Stir in wet ingredients until just combined.
4. On a hot griddle, ladle a spoonful of batter and cook until tiny bubbles form, flip over and cook another minute. 

P.S. Don’t feel too bad for me about the syrup. I get to play with this little man in the mornings and it makes everything else okay.

Give me your address and I will send you some syrup. I’ve got extra in the pantry 😉 In any case, those pancakes look yum. I haven’t had pancakes in a looooong time. The only time I ever eat them, is when mi madre makes them and I just so happen to be at their home for breakfast. That and I am horrible at making circular pancakes. They turn out looking like Texas or Michigan.

Lando does the belly up too 🙂 Especially when he wants a belly rub. So cute! He’s getting so big.

These are my kind of pancakes! I’m not a maple syrup fan. But apple cinnamon pancakes… Right up my alley.

Haha, I love that picture of your dog!! Mine sleeps like that all the time, but I didn’t know if it was a puppy thing. I’m so glad it’s not! 🙂 They really do make things all better.
Those pancakes look delicious!! Honey is a great idea for a syrup substitute! I love apple and cinnamon together, and my hubby would LOVE these! We actually like pancakes and waffles for dinner… I’m glad I saw this recipe, maybe dinner tonight! 🙂
