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!
- 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)
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!
