Ingredients

Apple Pancakes

  • cups oat flour
  • ½ tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp apple pie seasoning
  • 1⅓ cup plant-based mylk
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Caramel Sauce

  • 8 medjool dates, pitted soak in hot water for 5-10 minutes if hard
  • 1 cup coconut milk can be either full or reduced-fat, from a can
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Apple Pancakes

  • In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the oat flour, baking powder, and apple pie spice.
  • Add the applesauce, plant-based mylk, vanilla, and apple cider vinegar.
  • Mix until just combined. Do not over-mix. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes to thicken.
  • Heat a griddle or skillet with vegan butter. Cook ⅓ cup of batter on griddle or skillet for 3-4 minutes (or until bubbles pop) and flip, cooking additional 3-4 minutes on the other side. Repeat using all the pancake batter.

Caramel Sauce

  • In a small food processor, pulse pitted dates until well chopped.
  • Add coconut milk and vanilla extract processing until smooth. Add more coconut milk, a little at a time, if caramel is too thick.
  • Serve pancakes warm and topped with caramel sauce.
