Not your typical flapjack

Your new go-to.

Your new go-to.

Stop! Put down that EggMcMuffin, PopTart, Toaster Streudel or whatever other offensive breakfast “food” you might be eating. If you really want to start your morning right, try an apple-molasses pancake with honey butter. These pancakes are heartier and better for you than those Bisquick mixes because they are made with whole-wheat flour and no added white sugar.

You can easily whip these up in the morning, but for a quick fix, we suggest making the batter the night before and storing it in the fridge so all you have to do is ladle ‘em into the pan.

Start by combining 3 peeled and grated Granny Smith apples, an egg, butter, dark molasses and milk in one bowl, and baking soda, baking powder, whole-wheat and white flour, and salt in another. Then, whisk the dry ingredients bit by bit into the wet, but don’t get overzealous with your stirring, the batter should still end up with some lumps.

When the wet and dry ingredients are combined, cook them on the stove like you would any other pancake, making sure to flip when the edges begin to bubble.

The honey butter is a great, sweet touch to these pancakes, and a little bit goes a long way. All you need to do is melt unsalted butter and mix it with pure honey—drizzle it over your pancakes and, voila! you’ve got a truly wholesome breakfast!

And remember, as they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so get rid of that greasy, processed junk and start mixing!

Until next time,

xoxo,
