Easy Vegan Apple Pancakes

Pancakes are one of those crowd favourites for breakfast that can be customised in so many ways to suit a variety of tastes, plus they’re one of my favourite things to whip up for breakfast on the weekend!

I like to use this pancake recipe because it’s super simple and quick to make, then it’s just a matter of adding a variety of simple ingredients to create some really delicious flavours.

Today I have shown you two ways to do apple pancakes; first with fresh apple grated into the batter prior to cooking, and secondly by adding canned pie apple to the cooked pancakes. Both are super tasty and sweetened naturally by the whole apple used.

The pancakes were made using the batter recipe above and then cooked in Nuttelex (vegan butter alternative) in a warm frying pan.

Apple Pancakes with Fresh Grated Apple

This was a method my mum used when she made my sister and I pancakes as young girls, and one which I really enjoy!

Start by grating an apple (I used 1 apple for the recipe, without the skin), and then press the juice out of the grated apple with a paper towel. Add as much grated apple to the pancake batter as you wish, and drop it by the spoonful into the pan.

The result will be extra fluffy pancakes with shreds of fresh, crunchy apple throughout which adds a really nice texture to plain batter. It’s also a great way to add a little more fibre to your pancakes as well!

Are you taking the Plastic Free July challenge?

Here we are, at the start of a fresh new month, and what better to kick-off the month with than a new month-long challenge?

One of these challenges I have decided to take on this month is Plastic Free July, and I encourage you to take the challenge as well! Doing Plastic Free July is a great way to become more mindful of just how much plastic waste we create, and to try out some new tips and tricks for avoiding it as much as possible.

Sure, waste will always be a part of our modern life, but these days there are so many great reusable products out there that we can definitely make some easy changes to drastically reduce the amount of plastic waste we create.
