Make healthy apple pie pancakes with this quick and easy recipe

Apple pie pancake recipe (makes 4 pancakes)


  • 1 apple
  • 100g mashed banana
  • 50g self-raising flour (gluten free if required)
  • A squeeze of lemon juice (fresh or concentrated)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 100ml any milk (such as almond if vegan)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • (optional extras – 1 tbsp sultanas or crushed pecans)


  1. Chop the banana into chunks and microwave for 1 minute until mushy. Overripe banana works best as it is naturally sweeter.
  2. Cut the apple crosswise into thin slices and remove the core and pips with a sharp knife. You can leave the apple skin on. Cut into five slices. If you want yours to look extra fancy, use a apple corer to make rings.
  3. Put all of the other ingredients into a bowl and mix until smooth.
  4. Spray some low-fat cooking oil or coconut oil into a pan and dip each apple into the batter until all the batter is used up. If you have any excess batter, just pour a bit on top of each pancake in the pan.
  5. Fry the pancakes on each side for a minute or so until they are golden.
  6. Serve warm as they are or with low-fat yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup.
