Marta Nadales with this healthy and delicious dairy-free apple pancakes recipe.
By Marta Nadales
One of my dad’s favourite expressions is “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”, so you can imagine there’s always a big bowl full of apples in our family kitchen. Apples are awesome, they’re delicious, healthy, there’s a ton of varieties… it’s a great fruit!
But I’m sure some of you are not members of the “Fruit-Lovers Club”, am I right? Don’t worry, with this recipe you’ll still benefit from the apple’s vitamins and you’ll enjoy it!
A few years ago I saw Jamie Oliver prepare this recipe with his kids (I think it was a Christmas special on C4…) and since then, my pancakes have always been fruit pancakes. I usually prepare them with not-too-sweet apples (or pears) because I like the contrast with the sugar, jam, syrup… but you can add whatever you prefer.
- 1 cup spelt flour
- 1 egg
- 1 cup soya milk (Jamie used whole milk)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ apple, grated
- Blend all the ingredients together (except the apple) until smooth. Add the apple and mix (by hand).
- Heat a pan with a splash of extra virgin olive oil (brush the pan with just a few drops!) and prepare the pancakes one by one.
- Serve with sugar, hot chocolate, syrup, jam, marmalade...
