Apple Pancake Dippers

Special breakfast items are always a nice way to get the students running to the Breakfast Club in the morning.  Try this fun twist on a  traditional pancake recipe. When you can incorporate additional fruit servings into breakfast it’s always a bonus. Kids are more willing to try new things if they are served in fun ways.  Incorporating kids in the kitchen is also a great way to get them excited about healthy foods.   You can try this recipe at home or at your KES Club this week:

 Apple Pancake Dippers

 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!
