Apple Pancakes

Happy 1st day of fall!  We picked a bushel of apples two weeks ago and still have about a peck left.  I shredded 2 apples by hand (if you have a food processor that will grate, use it, ours unfortunately broke a couple weeks ago, but it lasted us a good 12 years) to make  
Vegan Apple Pancakes:
 (adapted from Vegan Planet, their recipe is called Flax-Berry Pancakes)

1 1/2 c flour
2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp ground flaxseeds
2 apples, shredded
1 c water
dash of cinnamon

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
Combine flax and water and mix until thick. 
Mix wet ingredients into dry until just combined, then add shredded apple. We ate them with real maple syrup!  This serves 4.

We love apple pancakes. We slice the apples and make pinwheels on the pancakes as the first side is cooking. One of my daughters discovered that if you sprinkle that side with cinnamon sugar, then it caramelizes when you flip the pancake. It's delicious.

These were totally amazing today! They tasted JUST like the decadent (not-Vegan-at-all) pancakes of my childhood : )

Other than adding the wild blueberries, is this the same recipe you used today? I really enjoyed it & would like to try making them here sometime.

Yes, this is the same recipe we used with the homeschool pancake making day! I added the wild blueberries...and omitted the shredded apples.
