Egg-less Whole wheat apple pie pancakes

Don't we all love starting our day with a delicious breakfast! Sure I love having poha, upma, uttapam and sandwich but I also love my smoothies, chia pudding and pancakes for breakfast. Classic or chocolate, give me pancakes for breakfast and my day is made. Pancakes are usually made with flour and eggs but I like making them egg-less using whole wheat flour and they turn out as delicious as the ones made with flour.

Its that time of the year when markets are beaming with fresh and crisp Indian apples. They are so crisp, juicy and delicious right now.

 If you love apple crumble and apple pies as much as I do then you are going to love these pancakes.
Cinnamon + butter + apples!  Oh my, your house is going to smell incredible when you make these pancakes. But don't you worry, there's hardly any butter or sugar in this recipe so these are healthy and at the same time delectable. And bonus is that they are made with mix of whole wheat flour and oat flour. Amazing right?

These pancakes will remind you of apple pie as soon as you start eating them. Soft and fluffy pancakes are topped with syrupy cinnamon-spiced apples. Beautiful and glossy apples are cooked in butter,honey and sugar which gives caramel like delicious thick syrup.

You are going to want to eat these apples straight from the pan. Its that good! And don't even get me started on the delicious syrup, it is to die for!

These eggless and healthy pancakes are ideal for quick breakfast as they come together quickly. From start to finish, just about 30 minutes and incredibly simple and easy to make. Perfect for weekend indulgence or busy weekday mornings.

Pancakes are favourite among kids and these pancakes with apples will be amazing if you want to increase their fruit intake. Apples and cinnamon is a match made in heaven and kids are going to love and savour these pancakes till last bite. I also recommend trying these Whole wheat chocolate pancakes which are insanely chocolatey and wins over adults too.

Amazing and egg-less Apple Pie Whole wheat Pancakes - fluffy, delicious, healthy!

Type: Breakfast
Diet: Vegetarian
Serving: Makes about 4 pancakes


3/4th cup whole wheat flour
1/4th cup rolled oats or instant oats
1/4th cup yogurt
2 tsp sugar
3/4th cup water
1/4th tsp cinnamon powder
1+1/2  tsp eno/fruit salt
2 tsp butter for making pancakes

Apple topping

1/2 apple- thinly sliced (skin on)
2 tsp butter
2 tsp honey
1 tsp sugar
1/4th tsp cinnamon powder
1/4th cup water or more if required.


For pancake batter, combine whole wheat flour, oats,  sugar and cinnamon powder together in a medium bowl.

Now add yogurt,water in dry ingredients and make a smooth batter. (Batter will be fairly thick but keep it that way coz fruit salt/Eno will make the batter light and thin).

Pre-heat non-stick pan/griddle and brush lightly with oil/butter.

Just before making the pancakes, add fruit salt in the batter and give a good mix.

Prepare pancakes by dividing the batter into 4 pancakes. Cook till the surface dries out and you can see bubbles, then brush the surface lightly with butter. Now flip and cook the opposite side till golden brown.

For apple topping, melt butter,sugar and honey in a medium sauce pan.

Add apples, water and cinnamon powder.

Cook apples over medium heat till they are slightly softened and the syrup in the pan becomes slightly thick. Turn off gas and keep apple topping aside. (Add more water if you like  ore syrup)

Serve pancakes with the apple topping and syrup.
