Apple Pie Pancakes

 

I'm still using apples form our big harvest this year. It's amazing how many apples one little tree can make. Lucky us to have this big juicy apple blessing, right in our own back yard. I've been promising Rick another apple pie, but somehow haven't gotten around to making one yet. I think these Apple Pie Pancakes made him just as happy as a pie would have.

 

Apple Pie Pancakes

 

Topping

6 cups chopped apples

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 T cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

2 cups water

1 T arrowroot

 

Place all the topping ingredients, except arrowroot, in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes, until the apples soften. Add the arrowroot gradually, reduce heat to low, and keep the sauce warm until you're ready to serve it. If you like, you can mash it up a little bit with a potato masher.

 

Cakes

2 cups brown rice flour

2 T baking powder

1 tsp xanthan gum (omit this if you use a flour with gluten)

2 T brown sugar

1/4 tsp salt

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup dates, pitted and chopped

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

1 cup apples, chopped small

2 cups nut milk

1 1/2 cups water

Mix dry ingredients together. Add the milk and water, and stir until well blended. Let the batter rest about 5 minutes, and add more milk or water if necessary. Cook on a very hot griddle, as you would any pancakes. This makes about 18-20 1/4 cup cakes. Any extras reheat well for snacks later. Serve with the warm apple topping, and a little vegan butter if you like. Hmmm... maybe even some vanilla Coconut Bliss ice cream...
