It’s nearly Halloween! This year I’m dressing up as a spider – I’m known as the crazy spider lady who doesn’t mind picking up spiders, but in actual fact, I just don’t want them to be killed! I’m also baking some gluten free cupcakes for my works Halloween baking competition – representing all the gluten free folk out there! Plus trying to convince my work colleagues that gluten free food doesn’t taste like cardboard…
These toffee apple pancakes are perfect for a Halloween breakfast – unlike traditional toffee apples, these pancakes are healthy(ish!) and have nutritional ingredients, so you won’t feel tired and sluggish after eating them. The cinnamon apples and toffee sauce would also be amazing on top of porridge, if you don’t have time to make the pancakes. I’m biased though and I’ve been known to get up early just to have time to make crazy breakfasts like this…
- 1 cup GF oats (100g)
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp coconut oil, plus extra for frying
- 2 red apples, cored and peeled
- 1 tsp coconut sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp coconut oil, room temperature
- 1 tbsp smooth almond butter
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- Melt the coconut oil on the hob or in a microwave until melted. Next, blend all ingredients for the pancake mix in a blender until smooth.
- Pop in the fridge for 10mins to firm up.
- While the pancake mix is in the fridge, place all the ingredients for the toffee sauce in the blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.
- Chop the apples into cubes, place in a frying pan with the coconut sugar and cinnamon. Heat on a mid temperature until the apples are soft and smell delicious.
- Take the pancake mix out of the fridge. Heat a little bit of coconut oil in a frying pan and spoon 1-2tbsp of pancake mix into the pan. Smooth into a circle with the back of your spoon.
- Fry for 2-3mins on either side, or until they have small air holes and have started to colour. Repeat for the rest of the batter.
- Stack your pancakes on top of each other, adding your toffee sauce and cinnamon apples.
- Any extra sauce/apples can be used on top of porridge!
