Whether your eating paleo, diving into keto or just trying to oomph up your intake of plant-based versus processed noshes, there is one undeniable truth: at some point, you will wish you could motorboat a pile of pancakes. A big, glorious pile of soft and floury flapjacks, patted high with butter and drizzled with pure golden maple syrup.
Alas, science tells us those pancakes are doing more ill for our bodies than they are benefitting our tastebuds. An invitation to blood sugar chaos and a whole day on the cravings rollercoaster, a plate of classic pancakes are barely better than eating a cupcake for breakfast. Drizzled with cheap, storebought syrup, they may even be worse that buttercream-frosted cuppies.
Regardless the real science of calories and cupcakes, here is one deliciously simple fact to digest: you don’t have to diet without pancakes. Because, sweet mother almighty. Three-ingredient Paleo Apple Pancakes are a thing. They’re also, like, they easiest breakfast hack you’ve ever hacked. All you need? An apple, coconut flour and an egg.
Making this incredibly easy, fritter-inspired recipe goes like this: Slice apple. Dip apple. Fry apple in a skillet. Enjoy pancakes. Amen.
Go ahead! Indulge away, enjoy for days. This 3-ingredient recipe is a total keeper. We love eating it for dessert, but of course, it’s also absolutely ideal for breakfast.
