Gluten Free Apple Pie Pancakes – #SpringSweetsWeek
Are you tired of being house bound yet? I sure am and it’s only been 10 days of working from home for me! Are there any ways you’re trying to break up the monotony and boredom? We’re trying to do some themed dinners or restaurant copycat recipes lately. I’ve made a recipe for Famous Dave’s bbq pork sandwiches and tried a gluten free copycat for Pei Wei’s ginger chicken and broccoli. But one of our all time favorites is breakfast for dinner! Pancakes for dinner, what could be better? Especially these Gluten Free Apple Pie Pancakes. They really take pancakes to the next level.
This recipe is sponsored by Diess and Adams Extracts in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. All opinions are my own.
These Gluten Free Apple Pie Pancakes are the best of both worlds. They’re breakfast AND dessert for dinner! What kid on Earth wouldn’t love that?! Or adult, to tell you the truth. We like those things too, you know! This recipe is super easy to make but just seems a little bit more gourmet, don’t you think? I think it feels a meal you’d eat at a fancy brunch place or at a hotel. But it really was super simple to create. A piece of cake, if you will 😉
You could use any pancake mix you’d like for this recipe. I used Trader Joe’s gluten free pancake and waffle mix but you don’t have to make them with a gluten free mix if you’re not a gluten free eater. Bisquick, Birch Benders, even Aunt Jemima! They’ll all work just fine. Whatever floats your boat. The apple pie topping is naturally gluten free. I didn’t add any special substitution ingredients to make it gluten free. This recipe really does work well for both food allergy sufferers and regular eater alike. It’s sure to be a hit with the whole family!
