Pumpkin Pancake Apple Rings Recipe!

Hi friends! I’m so glad I’m finally getting the chance to post. I’ve missed blogging so much while my life just seems to get busier and busier. I couldn’t pass up writing about this amazing recipe though! I found this Apple Rings recipe from Facebook and altered it very slightly to make it gluten free and easy for anyone to recreate! It’s perfect for the fall season, especially with Thanksgiving coming up, but also for busy moms who want to whip up a quick and healthy snack for the kids. So let’s jump right on into the recipe:

Items you will need:

  1. Apples (if you’re making these for multiple people, buy A LOT of apples)
  2. Gluten free pumpkin pancake mix (you can buy this at Trader Joe’s)
    • you will need 1 egg, butter, and water for the pancake mix
  3. Cinnamon
  4. Maple Syrup

To start off this recipe, clean your apples and cut them horizontally to create thin apple circles. Next you must create rings out of these circles but stamping a hole in the middle of the apples. You can do this by simply cutting a circle with a knife or in my case, I took a tiny circular measuring cup and punched a hole out with it. Refer to the photo below for exactly what they should look like!

Second, mix up your pancake batter. The Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes have instructions for how to put it together. Only 1 egg, melted butter, water, and the mix is needed. Make sure not to over mix the batter! Now it’s time to place your apple rings into the pancake mix and place them on your pan. I use a low heat since the pancakes tend to cook super fast and it’s easy to burn them. Flip the apple rings like you would a normal pancake.

Once they’re cooked, place them on a plate and drizzle some cinnamon over them to add some extra flavor! Add some maple syrup on the side and voila! They’re done! They can be eaten just like waffle sticks and dipped into the syrup by hand. It’s a perfect breakfast or snack for kids before school or on an autumn Sunday morning.

This recipe is 100% gluten free and safe for anyone around you who stays away from gluten. But it can also be made with whatever pancake batter you like, even if it’s not gluten free. It’s a very flexible recipe and took about 10-15 minutes to make. The more you make them, the better they taste! Let me know if you try out this recipe by commenting below! Hope you guys are having a great November and had a fabulous Halloween! <3
