This is Aaron's Official Favorite Pancake Recipe. I can't blame him, they are completely and totally delicious. I think they still come in behind Orangette's oatmeal ones but the jury is still out on whether or not they come in behind the pumpkin ones. They both taste like autumn in tender, flat, circular form and these have the bonus of warm cinnamon-y chunks of apple throughout. I especially love that they help deplete the plain yogurt that I, for some reason, always have on hand.
I think I originally got the recipe from Cait.
Apple Yogurt Pancakes
Adapted from here.
1 2/3 cups milk
1 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (or whole wheat pastry flour works really well)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 good sized apple - peeled, cored and diced
In a large bowl, stir together the eggs, milk, yogurt and oil until well blended. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, stir into the milk mixture until smooth. Fold in chopped apple.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each cake. Cook until bubbles form in the cakes and the bottoms are golden brown. Flip and cook the other side. Serve and enjoy!
