Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes are the most delicious and cozy fall breakfast! These fluffy, wholesome pancakes are warmly spiced with cinnamon, have Greek yogurt added in for moisture and protein and have shredded apple baked into them. Make breakfast extra special by topping the pancakes with sautéed cinnamon apples and a drizzle of maple syrup!

These pancakes are a little more substantial than your typical buttermilk pancake. They’re made with white whole wheat flour and use Greek yogurt, and the combo provides extra protein and fiber.

Did you know pancakes freeze wonderfully? I make a batch every couple of weeks and freeze them to use as pre-run fuel.

Other tasty toppings include almond or peanut butter, plain Greek yogurt mixed with maple syrup and cinnamon, butter and maple syrup or apple butter.
