Apple-Almond Butter Pancakes

Apple slices with nut butter are a great healthy snack. Now, this delicious flavor combo can be enjoyed in these luscious pancakes. For gluten-free, use gluten-free flour. This recipe makes eight pancakes.


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon natural sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups almond milk

1/2 cup apple juice

3 tablespoons almond butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 large apple, peeled, cored, and chopped

2 tablespoons chopped roasted almonds


In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

In a blender, combine the milk, apple juice, almond butter, and vanilla and blend until smooth.

Pour into the flour mixture, stirring with a few swift strokes until just moist. Fold in the chopped apple and almonds.

Preheat the oven to 200°F. Lightly oil a griddle or non- stick skillet and heat until hot. Ladle about 1/4 cup of the batter onto the griddle or skillet. Cook on one side until small bubbles appear on the top of the pancakes, about 2 minutes.

Flip the pancakes with a spatula and cook until the second side is lightly browned, about 1 minute longer. Repeat with the remaining batter. Keep the cooked pancakes warm in the oven while preparing the remaining pancakes.
