Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

As you may have read in other posts, I have this day (long pause) and on this day (another pause) I make pancakes it’s called Pancake Friday. I love pancakes so much and look forward to finding the perfect gluten free fluffy non gooey pancake. This one is a winner not gooey and fluffy, it tastes perfect to not to over powering it is the perfect apple cinnamon pancakes.

I have tried so many different concoctions I learned flax egg didn’t work out so well for me. Banana oatmeal was awesome but….. it was a little heavy still not fluffy but amazing! Then I made pumpkin spice pancakes that was to die for but still needed an everyday pancake, you can have too much pumpkin spice. I know you don’t want to hear that but you can 😉

You’ll also find I love to make and use oatmeal like crazy in my pancakes, when I make oat flour I just use a little coffee grinder (like this one) I have dubbed as my spice grinder but you can prolly use any gluten free flour in it’s place.

Just look how bea-u-ti-ful that pancake is, love it so! I believe the applesauce does a world of wonder for the fluffyness of these pancakes.
