Wholemeal Apple Walnut Pancakes

Last weekend I posted a picture of the pancakes I made for our weekend Breakfast. I thought I'd share the recipe. One of my mum-friends commented on the photo asking when I sleep. In other words, where do I get the time. We always try to make time for special weekend breakfasts in our house, but this was really simple to make and didn't take much time at all. Along with my friend Ellen's Ricotta Honeycomb Pancakes, I now have another pancake favourite.

Serves 2

1/2 cup of wholewheat flour
1/2 cup of plain flour
1 tablespoon of sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
3 teaspoons of baking powder
2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
3/4 cup of milk
1 large egg
1/4 cup of chopped walnuts
1/4 of apple strips. - My trick is to use my peeler and peel off strips of apple and then chop them up. I found that the pancakes cooked a lot better using this method. I used a golden delicious apple. Do peel and cook any of the apple's skin.

1. Mix dry ingredients together, then make a well inside the dry ingredients. Add all wet ingredients and stir or beat until smooth.

2. Stir in apple and walnut pieces evenly throughout batter

3. Heat girdle or skillet to medium heat. Grease girdle with coconut oil.

4. For each pancake use 1/4 of batter and drop onto gridle. Turn and cook on other side once you see bubbles start to emerge from the wet mixture. Cook until golden  brown.

Serve with real Canadian Maple Syrup.
(I save heaps and get my syrup and coconut oil from Costco in Sydney)
