My mother is a pancake making goddess. If you ask my children, my nieces, or my nephew, “What is the best thing about visiting Grandma and Grandpa?” they will unanimously answer “Grandma’s pancakes.” My mom wields her pancake sorcery with a generous sprinkling grandkid-pleasing chocolate chips.
Photographic proof that I speak the truth.
These apple pancakes are made without any eggs or added sugar. The baking powder fluffs them up and the apples make them sweet. Ground flaxseed and water bind the mixture.
These still tasty pancakes satisfy my kids’ love of the floppy, fluffy, fried fritters without knocking the Pancake Crown off Grandma’s head.

Did you ever notice that apples have apple blossom prints inside?
