Apple picking season is here and these Apple Walnut Buckwheat Pancakes should definitely be on the menu this weekend.
Before we chat pancakes, let’s talk apples. I know on instagram, I’ve already dove into the pumpkin obsession and I am not even ashamed #basic, but I don’t want to leave apple season in the dust.
However in the technology world, Apple has not been my friend. This past week, my macbook pro charger cord frayed and I was computer-less for a few days until I was able to get to the apple store to get a new one. But then Labor Day weekend rolled around and I wanted to stay “unplugged” to really enjoy a weekend off.
In case you popped over to find a new recipe and didn’t get your fix, with my computer being out of commission these past few days, don’t worry.. the days I wasn’t posting, I was cooking up a storm, so I have a lot of new recipes coming your way!
Any just to keep you in the loop, RDelicious Kitchen is now on Yummly! I added a new button on the bottom of each post where you now can “Yum” my recipes. Yummly is kind of like Pinterest on steroids because when you sign up, you can fill out your taste preferences to include/exclude foods based on what you do or don’t want. When you “yum” a recipe it gets saved to your recipe box. It’s perfect for someone like me who likes to keep my recipes organized, but now virtually.
You can go to Yummly to set up an account for free and start yumming recipes from here or visit my Yummly profile! I’m very new to Yummly and still learning about it, but I hope you’ll join me!
Before you scroll down straight to the recipe, I still need to tell you about these pancakes! I’ve had this Hodgson Mill buckwheat pancakes sitting in my pantry for awhile now. Every weekend, I always had plans to make pancakes, but honestly pancakes are not part of my top breakfast food choices. Okay, okay, before you glare through your computer screen at me, let me explain! I love pancakes, but I always felt that sugar crash after having a pancake breakfast.
But these aren’t your average pancakes. With whole grains, like buckwheat, it packs in plenty of fiber to keep you full and maintain energy levels. Plus, the addition of apples (more fiber!) and walnuts (healthy fats and protein!) makes it a more balanced breakfast.
So, boost up the pancake mix in your pantry with this new twist!
- 3/4 cup Hodgson Mills Buckwheat Pancake Mix
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 apple, peeled and diced
- 2 tbsp cinnamon
- optional: syrup
- In a large bowl, mix together pancake mix, milk, egg, applesauce, walnuts, diced apples, and cinnamon.
- In a large skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat, scoop about 1/4 cup of batter into the pan for each pancake. Wait until the edges begin to bubble, then flip and cook until pancake is cooked through. Repeat until all batter is used.
- Stack the pancakes and top with additional walnuts, apple slices, and syrup if desired. Enjoy!
