Apple Pancake Dippers!

As winter approaches, there will be more and more days when you will want to serve up something warm in the morning. Special breakfast items are always a nice way to get the students running to the Breakfast Club in the morning, while still keeping your menu nutritious with fruit, milk and healthy grains.  I came across this recipe recently, and I thought it would be a great spin on the traditional pancake – give it a try!

Ingredients

  • 4 apples, sliced (peeled if desired)
  • 1 batch pancake batter
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • Cooking spray for pan
  • Yogurt of choice, for dipping
  • Maple syrup, for dipping (optional)

Directions

Slice apple. Using a melon baller or small cookie cutter, scoop out the core of the apple slices. Toss apple slices in pancake batter until coated.  In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat cooking spray.  Add apples and cook until bubbles form on pancake batter, approximately 2 minutes.  Flip and cook for 2 more minutes.  Sprinkle with cinnamon.  Serve yogurt of choice (or syrup) for dipping.  Enjoy!
